I bought it in San Jose in 1972, but had come from Illinois and was gutted on the right side with rust.  It had what I call a "blended" interior, black/silver pebblecloth with gray/gray champagne door panels.  What attracted me to it was that it was a V8 with a 3-speed manual shift AND that it had a date code of 19L.  As my later research turned out, the 19L was a typo, since this car would have been assembled in October, not November.  And, yes, it was parted out in 1978 to make an Edsel convertible.
