While I was looking for a 70 XR7 convertible I found this Competition Blue with houndstooth vinyl top for sale. I guess this is a rare color combination? Also the fact that the car has only 43,000 original miles makes this cat very unique. Hopefully a true enthusiast will grab this one.

wow. that's an oddball combo. I love the houndstooth roof cars a bunch. I like the Comp Blue cars too. Never ever even thought there would be one like this out there.

I personally like the color combination a lot, but then I've never been afraid of color, especially on the vintage stuff.
