1 of only 447 GT-390 with a 4-speed in a convertible were made! Of
those only 37 had this amazing color combination. This one is
outstanding. You don't have to take my word for it either; it's won
many top awards at Fairlane shows. The owner is a fanatic. We sold
this car for him several years ago and he missed it so much he
tracked it down and bought it back. It is a genuine car documented
with the deluxe Marti Report. Over the last couple years the owner
made several upgrades while maintaining its original look. The 390
was internally modified, trans was upgraded from a 4-speed to a
5-speed, suspension was upgraded too.
EXTERIOR: Wow, what a beauty! The body is laser straight, gaps are
precise. No rust or damage. Repainted its original Raven Black
color, rare, only 88 convertibles were this color The paint is
polished like glass. Only a few minor flaws if you look for them.
Jambs are slick, weatherstrips were replaced. Red GT stripes look
great. All the chrome and trim is shiny. Black convertible top is
in excellent shape. The GT wheels sparkle and have red center caps.
BFG radial redline tires.
INTERIOR: Rare factory red interior. Extremely rare factory
tachometer too. Dash area is very clean. Dash pad was replaced, has
optional deluxe wheel. A stereo is hidden in the glovebox. Door

console. The upholstery is very nice. Carpet is very nice, has
matching mats. A set of gauges are neatly installed under the dash.
Nice set of red seatbelts front and back. Interior lights work. It
has a leather key chain from the original dealer. Very tidy

I can vouch that the owner of this car treated it like one of his
children. It is detailed and dialed in very well. I'm sure the next
owner will be very pleased.
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to
assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are
answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video
that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are
displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an
appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment
there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car,
your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year
