History
Bought in 1977 as a second car for wife and a hobby for husband.
After thinking it would be an a year round car, we decided after the first winter it was not practical and has been garaged during the winter months ever since.
Never a trophy vehicle, it's seen a couple of paint jobs as a result of minor collisions by others, along the way upgrades in floor carpet, rag top and door/trunk gaskets along with any components requiring replacement.
All in all a good looking, fun vehicle that we enjoy driving.
