Yes, the 99 in back is Bordeaux Red Pearl. The convertible was done in Florida by Coach Builders LTD. Some better pictures are under the "96 convertible" thread in Showroom. rotf

Very cool, and a very cool company... Those ragtops must've gone for $50K when they were new!

I love that Bordeaux. I really wanted one with the matching interior, but I couldn't bring myself to buy a car 2,000 miles away...


Say, since you own both of them, have you noticed if the '67 is appreciably faster and/or less thirsty than the '66?

They are both about the same-I haven't timed them,but they're pretty quick. 3gears The 67 gets about 1 mpg better. boohoo

Thanks, I was curious. I spent a lot of high school in a '67 GS, but I've never driven a nail-head. I was told they made a lot of power but drank a lot of gas, and the 430 was an improvement. Actually, in a car like that (which I don't believe only weighs 4200 lbs, per my short research the other night) 1MPG is about a ten percent improvement! I'd certainly take another 1.6 in my Riv... clap
