Check out what the cat dragged in this time!!! Really cool car lots of aluminum parts too! These things are non existent so when I saw this one come up on a Canadian gbody page I didn’t hesitate to be serious about things and the guy actually held the car all winter for me finally picked her up today! Home and scrubbed looks good when wet haha. Now she ain’t no show stopper and has her rust but it’s a salable car for sure! Full vinyl top roof and a pillars! Landau type style. 5 L. engine (or 305 ci) 2 bbl!
Here’s a few pictures but watch me on YouTube “Gbodyjames” for a more in-depth look at the thing. once I’m done editing the video I’ll post it up with the others!!

Is that colour Sienna? I saw a 71 Cutlass S painted that colour with a white top like this one, love the colour.

They are close, the Sienna is maybe a bit more brown.

hopefully he can look at the body tag that is mounted on the cowl and report the color code.

Ya just looks good when the paint is wet then it dries back out but a good polish would bring it back I’m sure I’ve just never polished before.. just the initial douching out of the car is all Ive done.
Aluminum rear drums and inner bumper supports think the hood is steel though.
