Thanks - nice looking car but I think I'm leaning more toward a big-block. Thanks for bringing it to my attention though!

In my opinion not worth it.....Like the look of the L-88 hood but only
only if you have a big block under it....Don't let me get into the whole
luggage rack thing.....Can't stand them...Pack light and hit the laundromat
​​​​​​​if you plan on travelling...

New member but long-time lurker, I'm currently in the market for a '68-'72 convertible with hopes of finding something over the next 3-4 months. I'm primarily looking for a driver that I can tinker with, not something that will sit in a garage just to look pretty. Yes, I've reviewed the 10 rules (which are great and informative) and I do a bunch of work on my current cars so there isn't much from a maintenance perspective that scares me. If I don't have the tools (or time) to do the work, I have plenty of connections that I can farm out to.

I'm willing to spend around $20k-$25k and while numbers-matching isn't that important to me, I'd like to find something that has period-correct components (no '68's with a 454). I'd really like to find a big-block that falls within my budget, but realize that I may have to settle for a 350 to locate something that doesn't land me in the doghouse and isn't a rehab job.

As for colors, I'm flexible outside of yellow, white, and orange. I'd prefer a black interior, but could be swayed by something else if the price is right.

I think that's it for now. Any advice or leads that anyone has is greatly appreciated. I look forward to securing something soon and actively participating as a C3 owner on the board in the near future...

Thanks!

Thanks for reaching out. I think I'm really most interested in a big-block, but the right 350/350 may interest me. Feel free to PM me with details.

Thanks!

Beautiful car - GLWS. If I wasn't leaning toward a BBC I'd be all over this...

If you hear about a SBC in red, black, silver, or light blue, let me know! I will do likewise for a BBC.

Thank you! Are you looking for SBC L-46/LT-1 or just any SBC in those colors?

Update - no longer looking! Even though I started out seeking a BBC, somebody got in my ear and convinced me that an LT-1 would be a very nice alternative. I ended up finding one in TN that was numbers-matching and included a tank sticker to boot.

Thanks to everyone for their input!
