Only 25 made and we did this to it huh.... that might be a shame wouldn't ya think.

Tilt steerin in a 76 hmmmnn that'd be rare.

Handicap equiped would be a handful in such a beast too...

Maybe he meant there was only 25 right-hand drives made in 76... anyhow, at the current exchange rate of 1.56826, he paid US$255,059.74 to have that car built.  Me thinks he got took...    also, I think he believes that a T-Top is a convertible.

[QUOTE=Tuxman]Tilt steerin in a 76 hmmmnn that'd be rare. [/QUOTE]

Hmmmm....methinks NOT! unless over 41,000 so equipped would be considered rare...

Perhaps it is "rare" due to the neato equipment...? "Anti-Lock Brakes, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Immobiliser, Safety Belt Pretensioners"

It IS most likely THE ONLY one like it in the world, that's for sure.

GM never did any(production) RHD conversions for export. They all had to be done by the dealers, or the buyers.

Looks like the white straps are holding the hood on...that's a good selling point...be sure to point that out there, Mr. "0 feedback" feller...

Anny edition??? Who's anny would it be? YOUR'S???
Only 25 made in U.S.??? Only 25 WHAT?

Thanks Dave....you made me whole day!

WOW. . .Crappy pics, thick manure in the description and a bogus bidder!! Ever notice that new sellers of high end products often only have new buyers bidding on their items. . .it is called shilling - you bid your own product up with a few bogus bidders that are in fact you or your imaginary friends.
