    Nice car JohnnyGS. Nothing like going for a ride in a drop top and feeling the wind in your hair and the feel of the open road. Adds a whole new experience to driving a GS. Congrats on your purchase.

    I'm in the drop top club. I gotta be honest I was always a hard top guy, I just like the look better. Until I got this vert, Man nothing better than cruising with the top down on a nice day. My wife really loves riding in it as well..

  10. 1960 white over red, Buick Le Sabre drop top parked in my garage. Mostly original, numbers matching 364 nailhead 2 bbl w/PS, PB, Turbo Drive auto, working(most of t tm) clock ad original Sonomatic AM radio. Everything works...except the dash's idiot lights upon initial startup, and they work only intermittently.

    I just posted this video under member's rides, but I am so proud that I will do it again!!

    Below is my '69 4 speed car that I just got back together to the state you see here. The car is totally original and stock. I had to source a proper clutch fork and exhaust manifolds and that is all. I am still smiling since Monday....

    Burlington Ontario Canada here. Just acquired a 1974 Buick LeSabre Luxus convertible "stage 1" with 44,700 original miles. It's been in dry storage for 15 years. 1 of 197 built. It's a bit different than our 66 Chevy powered F100 but we're looking forward to getting into the project.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    I have a '71 GS convertible.

    My top operates correctly, but when in the down position, it doesn't seem to fully compress in the rear compartment. It seems like it's bunched up.

    When lowering the top, I know I'm supposed to stop halfway, and manually pull out the looped section (one 'loop' on each side of the car) of the top from the hinged mechanism.

    Am I supposed to do this at just one place on the top material?

    Does anyone have a link to literature showing proper raising/lowering instructions?

    Thanks
