    Does anyone know when they started making the convertibles? About 10 years ago there was a red 1977 convertible in a wrecking yard hear in vegas. Unfortunately it had been in a terrible accident and was too damaged to save and first responders had used the jaws of life to cut the windshield pillars, dash and top open to get the driver out.

    Hey @Cindi welcome to Nasty. Thanks for sharing and like Biker said, sorry for your loss. Car looks good in this picture, if its in good shape, no rust in floors or trunk where they usually rust then by all means it would be worth a lot as it sits. A bunch of us on here would love to see pictures of the bottom of that car LOL, I started this thread trying to find out what extra bracing they might have put in to convertibles...good luck with the car hope to see pictures.

    Was in great shape. Never driven in winter and for the last 32 years in a garage. I do not think rust will be an issue. Mice and wiring maybe.

    Good show, sounds like you got something there, definitely a sweet ride to the car show or cruise in, you and the car would be turning a lot of heads anywhere you go....
