Probably executive returns. These were the Pontiac Aztecs of the day. For some reason they just didn't sell.

Likely  a good percentage were drag pak cars with the "terrible" rear end gear ratios

Probably execs with car perks want the funnest car on the lot and generally have a second car at home.
My uncle got a Mustang when they first came out but moved up the line as he advanced. He had a sweetheart retirement deal as a VP and in charge of the Cleveland Casting plant. A new Lincoln with insurance and maint all he had to do was put gas in it. When it hit 20,000 miles they brought him a new one.

For two year old used cars being sold in what looks like September of 1970 (if I am reading that right), with the 1971 model year cars ready - it's about the right amount of depreciation.

Great advertising,  thanks for sharing 
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS
