My wife and I purchased the 1971 Convertible with the intent of fixing a few minor things and making it a weekend driver. The body is in excellent shape as it was originally delivered to a dealership in Dallas TX. The car has original disc front brakes and factory air which makes is pretty rare according to the Marti Report (1 of 19 as pictured). After going through the car we debated and determined that for us, stock was not an option. Update 9-14-2012 we are in the finishing stages of a complete mechanical overhaul. We have replaced just about everything that moves including the motor, transmission, rear end gears, radiator, all air conditioning components and the list just goes on and on. I am updating with some new pictures now.
