Hi, just bought a 71 Grabber Blue convertible, it was in storage for 25 years after suffering fire damage..So far I am doing safety items and getting it on the road reliably..tune up, oil change, complete brake job, removed interior to inspect for rust, rebuilt top hydraulics, fuel system clean out, some carb linkage upgrades, redoing some things hacked in the past…I am in Metro Atlanta.

Bought it in 1986. Base model convertible with a 302 3spd.
Welcome from Illinois and another 71 Grabber Blue vert owner!  As the others have said, we do like pics.  Keep us updated on your progress.

Welcome from AZ! Doing a similar "get it back on the road after 20 years" update on my 73 vert. Great to see another old car pulled out of storage.
