The text accompanying the photo on the hosting source (below) notes it was the first Climax to be used in Michigan.  In addition, its shop number (a.k.a. construction number) was #27.  Since current generally accepted Climax owner rosters show the shop number as being "unknown" (as indicated with the "X" before the 20), this might be a new "find" by the GSLW should it be true.
