Wow nice project Jerry. I can't wait to see your progress.  I'm glad someone like yourself has this car and will fix it right.

Post some pics after you remove the interior and we'll see what you have, or "don't have" so to speak.


Will do. I guess I could start a thread with what pics I already took. The dash wont be hard (jinx) to get out so I can remove those vents.

@ Chuck W.

Did you get that turbo 4 put back together? I bought some motor mounts from you about 3 years ago ( I live on the west side) and I saw it but it was still on a stand.

I have no real plans for it right now. It leaves rubber just fine the way it is. :burnout:
Besides, who wants to go light speed in something with no roof.

I'll just clean it up and make it pretty

Not bad seeing the car was from IL.

LOL, try that in a black car with one window down cause your passenger side motor doesnt like the heat, in pants and long sleeves. Going to try and fit the A/C this summer though.

The engine bay looks good. You may want to do a stock HO conversion to the 'Vert ie SEFI HO ;)

A/C was standard on the LS, so that's why mine had it. The PEP packages usually included A/C also, and those were popular back in the day. I really can't recall seeing a convertible without factory air, in fact. However the cars were shipped to Car Craft, that's how they chopped them. :)

When I first got my convertible in '96 the A/C worked great. Then the next summer it lost the freon and I never fixed the system. It was kind of nice to have with the top up, I will admit that. Now that it's removed from the car, trips are very, very hot depending on the time of day I'm travelling. Sometimes I wish it was still in the car...
