Hello everyone. My name is Veronica and I'm from Los Angeles. I've come across this site many times and I finally decided to register. I have a 1971 convertible, which I've owed for 22 years. Long story short, she's been sitting for about 17 years (in the elements). I'm working on getting her up and running again, and hope to share the progress.

Welcome from Oklahoma.

 

Decide the direction you want to go - original or modified - then evaluate what is needed for your car. Marti Auto Works can provide documentation on how your car was equipped when new if this interests you. If your car has the original driver's door, the data tag on the jam can tell a lot too.

Lots of great folks on here that can help you along the way. Just ask.

Thank you all for the kind welcome.  The car is currently in the shop for mechanical repairs. I'm not mechanically inclined, so I sought the assistance of a professional. I will do the restoration of the interior and anything else (like grille replacement, etc.).

 

Here's a brief history of the car. My dad purchased it in the early 90's for about $900. He said that when he bought it, it had a 351 engine and he replaced it with a 302. According to Marti, mine originally came with a 302.  I plan on keeping it as "original" as possible, but I do have a few changes in mind. As a teen, I didn't like the white top/interior, so we purchased a black top but never installed it.  The top has been in storage and I plan on having it installed.  Ideally, I'd like to change the interior to black as well.  Also, I don't know what I did wih the original radio, but I plan on installing one of those radios that look somewhat to the era, but has Bluetooth.

Hello from central Illinois.  Is the green on the inside of the drivers door the original color?  My older brother had a 71 coupe that green, it looked really good.  I like the white interior, I wish mine had it.  I just joined a few days ago.  Welcome!
