Default 1962 TBird Roadster

So, there's a new local consignment shop
in San Ramon.
There's a red 62 convertible with the tonneau
cover and it's "supposed" to be an M-code
(hood wasn't open)
It's pretty good shape. Frt seats need to be redone
the top was down, so don't know the cond of that.
The qtr wdos were down too. I could see where the felt
on the qtr belt was almost worn away. I could
see body shop gunk down in there. Still over all, pretty good.
Here's the kicker.
Asking $74,000
WOW !!!!!! Proud of that one !!!

Hi John, here is how one can tell if that is a real Sports Roadster... or not.... As this article says, there seems to be more Sports Roadsters on the road these days than they made.... Soooo, buyer beware...

Thanks, Geoff! If you looked at the main site, not only does it cover Tbirds, but it also covers a number of other cars, like Buicks, Caddys, Imperials, Lincolns, Continentals and Olds. Plus a lot of other stuff. For the Tbirds it covers them from 1955-1979 and I have been using it as a good source of information when I am helping someone find a Tbird to buy, or when I need to look up certain information regarding engines, trannys, production info, paint colors, interiors, standard and optional equipment etc.. It has been a great source of information. Here is the main link for those who have never seen this before.

I gotta admit. These cars are growing on me. Not for $75,000
I asked the guy if that included 2 more. NO sense of humor.

But after seeing that video of the Coyote engine in one. WOW!!

A Bullet would make a neat retro-rod.
