|The Tahiti Marlin Concept
After the Chicago Auto Show the Black Marlin went back to the AMC styling studios where the interior was replaced and
the exterior was repainted with a Metal Flake Blue to become the “Tahiti” Marlin.
|Until now very few people
have seen these pictures. I was contacted several years
ago thru Ebay by a gentleman that questioned my Ebay name,
which by the way is "Marlin-Tahiti". And he wanted to know
if my name had anything to do with Tahiti show car. He
then went on to tell me when he was a young man growing up
in the Chicago area he would go to the auto show every
year and that he had some pictures I may be interested in.
I had forgotten about these pictures until I was just
recently going thru all the documentation that we have
with the Tahiti. These three pictures were taken during
the 65 and 66 Chicago Auto Show. Enjoy!
