Hello chapter!

I would love to hear from anyone who lives or travels through the less friendly parts of the world. I live in Los Angeles, and I am never too comfortable leaving my 63 Convertible unattended.

What are your favorite Anti-theft devices for these vehicles and why? Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks!

-Tim

I remember somebody way back saying something about welding razor blades to the fender skirts to keep people from stealing them. Definitely not recommending this (major lawsuit), but I thought it was pretty crafty/terrifying.

Like your idea about the nss switch cut off switch a lot
After removing the coil wire , I like to chain the hood closed with a chain and lock if the car will sit for a period of time , in one location
So you cannot get to reinstall the coil wire
None of the above will stop a tow truck

Disable the ignition. A thief will not troubleshoot to see why the car wont start.

Remove the coil wire

Run a kill switch under the seat.  Run a wire off of the NSS (ignition feed) to the seat, and add a switch to the wire. Feed the wire back to the NSS.

A friend of mine ran a cutoff switch to the battery so that he could switch the battery on and off from under the seat of his Chevy.
