|Historians Michael T.
Lynch and David Seielstad discussed this car and David decided that this
Monza was #0496.
"I am certain that the
McGreevy Monza is 0496, ex-de Portago,ex-Gary Laughlin, ex-Charles Northrop
Peck. That it came out of Houston, the roundels under the hooks for
the hood and rear deck, no door in passenger side and the windscreen which
was still on the car when it came to Christian Baverey from Brian Classic
in 1973. Also, when it was at Cognolato's the dented nose was evident.
Remember that de Portago smashed up the nose at Nassau.
0496 was auctioned at
Pebble Beach Christie's in August 2000 with commission $776,000. Think
it went back to Europe."
