Wow. Original barely does this one justice. It looks as-new and totally unaltered from its factory state. It might not be as butch or low-riding as some tweaked 1975 Stratos — but is probably the more valuable of the two among serious collectors.
A similar, but less original, 1975 model (shown at bottom) brought $375,000 at last year’s RM Monterey sale.
This 1974 car is being sold without reserve by RM Auctions August 15th (or 16th) in Monterey, California.
