The penthouse has been around a lot longer than that, at least since the early 60's.

Re: 1973 dodge sportsmobile

Just curious... I bought a 73 Dodge van new back then and it was a "B-100" as I recollect. What was the "D" line about? Ha - I still remember the license plate - CA 275-HKJ. How weird is that?

Hello fellow "old school" SMB owner! Thought you might appreciate this 73 Dodge brochure...for some reason it was included with all the docs we got with our 72 Ford Econoline. Cheers!
