About “The Convertible”

Our Families car.

My dad used to have a 66 GTO convertible glacier greenish blue, he sold it the day my mom and him got married for 850 bucks. the insurance company told him to!!

ever since he has kicked himself,

my uncle and him found this tempest convertible and had to go in on it partner style.

later for unforseen circumstances my dad "acquired" my uncles half of the car but we all still drive it.

i drove it to my future wifes prom and later to our wedding,

my dream honeymoon was to cruise route 66 and go to detroit for the woodward dream cruise.

maybe someday :)




But now i'm divorced and you can see a picture of my beautiful girlfriend standing in front of the car at one of our favorite Karaoke bars

About “Miranda”

I purchased brand new on Halloween, 2006 from Pat Clemons in Boone, Iowa. The odometer read 12 when I picked her up.

 

Specs for “The Convertible”

All numbers Matching 326 and Powerglide.

Original spare tire and jack in the truck with instructions sticker under the deck lid

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

found some old ORIGINAL (early 70's) Bias ply good year polyglas tires in an old shed. GREAT SHAPE!!!

they're a little big so i had to put spring spacers in the front and rear with some air shocks in the back.
