I've compiled a list of all the 1970 Q and R code Sportsroofs in the registry and there are only two Grabber Blue CJ Sportsroofs registered. 

0F02R144021 is listed as a W code in the registry but that car was for sale a couple years ago at the St.Louis Gateway store and I went to look since it was only 75 miles away.  Turns out.. the Marti, which I obtained a copy of, says it's an A code 3.50 standard axle.   Hard to understand why anybody would order a non posi on a 428 car.  Marti says it was a retail order.

The other GB car is 0T02R141703 and is a V code.

 ;D  Maybe some one will chime in that has not registered theirs like me. Is it crazy that I heard they only made 16 4 speed 4.30 Locker sports roofs? Rick Parker's is the best Grabber Orange one I have ever seen. Mine was built Jan. 70.
Thanks Jack in Ga.

I agree Jack.  Parkers Grabber Orange Sportsroof is amazing.  I went to Columbus in 2010 basically just to look at that car.  According to stats pulled from the registry, which is 8 years old now...hard to believe that, but anyway.. there are 5 Q code 4.30 cars registered and 8 R code 4.30 cars registered. 

According to a letter I have from Marti, it states that there were 43 1970 non-Mach Sportsroofs produced with the W code rear.  Don't know for certain but I think that 43 number includes both Q and R cars.  I don't have proof in hand but I had someone tell me once that they had info from Marti stating there were 13 Q code 4.30 cars.  So given how the ratio seems to run that sounds about right that there would be 30 R code 4.30's produced.  Once you take away the automatics your number of 16 4-speeds sounds about right.
