1980 Blakely Bearcat S Convertible (Roadster)
Last updated Jun 22, 2011
This isn't my car but rather my wife Lori's new car. She isn't much of a muscle car person and this fits to a T. It's a 1980 Blakely Bearcat S the precursor to the Bernardi. We picked this up on ebay two weeks ago. It needs a little TLC but overall it's a very cool car and runs just fine.
built on a 1975 Pinto chassis and 4 cyl engine. It was builit at the factory Blakely Motorworks. All fiberglass body with two tone finish. We recently had the car restored bot the body and interior. A deeper blue and deeper tan fenders. The interior is now a rich one color beige with new dash new steering wheel and new carpet. After it was returned from the shops we finished it off with all new chrome and shiny bits. Wiring up the lights, the antenna etc. A brand new top with side curtains finish it off.
Standard kit built by the factory. Tubular frame and all the body was included. The donor car was a 1974 pinto provided the drive train.
