OK, I usually don't like convertibles, I just don't think I look good in them, kinda the way some people should avoid wearing fedoras. But I'd be more than happy hitting the strip in any city driving this bad boy.

It comes with a 400 horse power, 454 cu. in. V-8 engine. pared with a 700-R4 automatic transmission, modern independent front suspension, coil-spring rear suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes.Additional features include a Carson-style removable cloth-covered chopped hardtop, and 18-inch and 20-inch Foose wheels wrapped in Z-rated BFGoodrich tires.

The dashboard and other elements match the minimal streamlined interior. More details are available on RM Auctions website.
