(Not counting the cut off top...)
I sort of like the front end lines with the '55 hood and the bars..
Almost looks Aston Martin'ish...
If it was finished off right, it would sure be a looker..

The grille almost looks like it was Photoshopped!

That's the one we were talking about last night. Don't be mis-lead: it's a roadster, not a convertible; which means NO TOP... I'm watching it, since I'll be coming right by there next week with an empty tow dolly;) It looks pretty sharp with the roof off; I wonder if any bracing was done... I cut the roof off a 76 Camaro years back; talk about cowl shudder[:0]

Probably the wheels alone will put it out of my own "take-a-chance" range...

Just revisited the listing, and see that the seller says there was no bracing installed

Wonder what his reserve could be... those wheels tell me at least a couple grand[xx(]

Somehow I envision a stylized targa bar across the rear seat for bracing...

Here is another "custom" convertable...I cannot stand it when they do this...to any car. I just think it is tacky!

If you don't like the top, just cut it off! Of a two door hardtop...grrr.

That Lark! Man, that's classy[xx(] Oh wait! I'm not 'sposed to talk like that.[xx(]

I like the GT roadster tho. Wonder how well the doors open and shut?

I like the way he goes out of his way to point out it has 'new' shocks[:p]...
