    Thanks Buford26 for your reply. Interesting. How many 4 speed convertibles were made? this car has not been licensed since 1989. Has original motor and tranny. Needs a lot of work. Been seating outside along time.

    What do you think the survival rate is on these cars? Do you think it is worth bringing it out of the weather for future restore? Are parts hard to find? Sorry for all the questions on this. Steve

    I was told that as a rule of thumb survival rate is about 10%. If the car isn't a rust bucket, I would be dragging it home, I'd probably drag it home anyway, especially if the engine was not seized (but I live rurally).

    Lower rear quarters are shot, doors good , fenders good, interior needs to be replaced, floors ?, rag top gone but frame is there. If I can figure how to post pictures, I will. Steve
