    I went and looked at this car yesterday. The seller is a really nice guy that wants to make sure the car goes to a good home. If anybody wants an accurate description, pm me.

    I was interested in car but he says he has someone coming to look at it on Saturday. It's 4 hours so I figure wont have a shot to look at it. Glad to see you checked car out. I am not really looking for something but the car looked like a decent project.

    Curious if it is a true Stage 1. And is that a rim-blow steering wheel I see? Did anyone get pics of the engine bay?

    The owner said it has the BB trans but engine is not original and not stage 1. Would have to check vin on it.

    To answer some questions I’ve been asked, I could not find a tag on the trans. He has a 72 gs hardtop that goes with the convertible, but I didn’t put eyes on that because it was 10 miles away. He said it had decent doors and fenders, but not much else. It has a bb trans in it (from him), but he didn’t say it was out of the vert.

    The convertible has a blue engine. The hood is a 71 or 2. Air cleaner is also a 72. It’s an early car, so pointed lenses, clear overflow, and plastic radiator hold down. Frame looked decent. Couple spots on the floors need attention. Trunk was patched with fiberglass at some point.

    Also, it doesn’t appear to be a factory aquamist car.

    I think the data tag had code 45.

    Good thing you checked car out and got this info for other that might be looking at it. Appears to be alot of uncertain variables to what it is. Only real way would be to run the vin through sloan to see if it could be documented. Seamist would be code 45. Regardless still a 455 convertible.

    I’m certain he will sell it. Maybe to the next guy that looks at it. But it is a big project, and I’m all stocked up on those right now. I will say, if I could have found one part that was stage 1 specific, it would be in my garage right now.
