It was done wrong but the price is right!
No, it's painted. It's a very pale gray, as far as I can tell but look at some of the closeups of the upper quarter body line and you can see the gloss of the paint.Is this car still in primer gray - just more glossy? Surely you can pick a better color for a Cougar.......just saying.......
The first year for a factory convertible was 1969. CatVert is also a conversion from a '68 hardtop. Here's a link to my 67-68 convertible conversion page, if you haven't seen it yet:I'm not a fan of convertibles AT ALL. But a 67?? that looks like a 68 convertible looks freakin SWEEEEET! at least at first glance at least. quarter panels a little weird but still looks better than a mustang!
What do you think, Bill? Will it get it?It looks like the owner has consigned it to the Auburn Fall RM Auction -
It's also listed on Hemmings as going to the auction with an estimated auction price of $10 - 15K.
That's a tough call because I know nothing about this particular auction or what type of bidder it draws. If the reserve on the car is set to $10K, I'll be surprised if it does more than meet reserve. There's a lot of work left to do on this car and it's going to have to draw eyeballs from all the other cars there. I'm not sure it's of high enough quality to do that, but we'll see.What do you think, Bill? Will it get it?
