Do you remember the price?

Thanks

Clint
Clint, There actually was no posted price. This a place somewhere in Texas and the guy has a "FEW" TriFive Chevys for sale. Almost all of them do have a price, this one didn't which probably says something in and of itself. Here's link take a look. Maybe if you do call and get a price you will post it here.

I have seen the heritage of the convertible posted but frankly I don't remember what it was.

It's probably a 55 or 56 with 57 quarter panels. The 55 hood isn't going to match a 57 cowl (57 cowl is lower). So it's a 55 or 56 cowl. That's why I say it's a 55 or 56.

The bottoms of the 55 fenders aren't going to match 56 or 57 rocker panels. But that would be relatively easy to modify relative to the cowl problem.

You could put 57 quarters on a 55-56 fairly easily.

Somebody mentioned a sport sedan (4 door hardtop). There's one in Texas that's a sport sedan "as they would have built it in 55". A 56 car with 55 quarters, rockers, and front sheet metal. Much of the stainless side trim is hand made modifications of other 55 trim to get the lengths right (think about it). Michael Domoracki built it quite a few years back. I don't think you'd have the stainless trim problem with the convertible, or at least the mods would be simpler.

Well, I was wrong, he's willing to let it go for a measly $65,000, as it sits. AND, he's even gonna throw in some nice original seats!

Here is a "build link" that he sent me.

It looks like TONS of work has gone into this car, dealing with the difference in cowl heights.

Too rich for my blood.

Sorry about the highjack!
