I am looking at an early production vetter to purchase and I've verified via the VIN that it is a '77 (VIN starts with 1z37L7sxxxxxxx). Everything I've read says the '77s either had no moniker on the fender (early production) or the crossed flags. So, did someone along the way exchange the crossed flags for the Stingray moniker or possibly just add it to one without any moniker at all or, did in fact some models have the Stingray moniker? This one is in the first 2000 produced. Thanks for your help.
