Default Trying To Track Down Additional 1972 Chevelle SS 454 Convertibles

Looking for any leads or information to track down REAL 1972 Chevelle SS 454 Convertibles.

These cars would have a W for the 5th character in the VIN #. It doesn't matter, if it doesn't run or not totally original. These will be the featured car at Chevellabration in 2009 (Chevelle National Car Show). There were only believed to have been 70 built. Only 18 are known to exist today.

Any help finding 1972 Chevelle SS "W" VIN code convertibles would be appreciated!
