I heard from a buddy that worked at a dealer in the sixties that when cars were ordered for stock sometimes they would order an odd option just to see what it was. One that sticks in my mind was a 64 Chevy 1/2 ton with rear leaf springs, that sold very quickly and more were ordered for stock. This may explain why some cars have one really odd option and not much else. I am sure other dealers did the same.

I've got a 69 Malibu with almost as many options. About the only thing the owner didn't get was the SS package. Still a cool car.

I didn't know that Chevy made a right hand remote mirror?

I'm no expert (by a long shot!), but wouldn't you expect a 396 with an $8,000 rebuild and 10.25/1 compression to be putting out more than 385 hp? (Unless he means rear wheel)
