 Does anyone know if there is a actual difference in the front shocks between convertibles and the other models ? I see listings on some sites saying there is , I am skeptical

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 1 Comment

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.
