Where did that guy get his numbers? I wonder if the "332 GT cars ever made" refers to the S code/4 speed combo on a standard hardtop?

I know the XR7/S code numbers were 489 for wide ratio and 168 for close ratio but I have no idea what the standard production numbers were.

Regardless of the numbers, it is a very rare car. I like the parchment / blue color combination with no console. Wish it didn't have a vinyl roof.

Marti report says it came with a parchment vinyl roof! Pretty cool car! Love the Nordic blue paint color.
