Sorry to here it wasn't there.

My 71 Vert came with what appears to be a Hardtop rear seat bottom so if you ever want to part with your extra one let me know I'll need one eventually.

Mines also got a rear hard top seat in it right now. Getting this back seat was really important to me as I was with out one and I needed it to install my new seat covers.

Just my luck - I e-mailed the guy you forwarded to me. We'll see what happens I have plenty of time to find one.

You got me thinking after you asked me, but check out this post I just asked a question about. I never knew this.

I've been thinking about it as well and was looking through these posts last night. I always thought the bottoms were close enough to fit. I will take a look at the one I have & it might just be the 71 - up style. Hopefully it will work out.

Update: I actually have the right one. Glad I looked before I bought another one.Correct frame wrong cover...

Do you guys think I should put my new polyglas tires on the 15" ralleys or black steel rims? I've got the correct centers on the back ralleys and have the correct ones for the front as well but just havent put them on yet. I will need to pick up a set of correct trim rings for it if I decide to go with the ralleys. I think it originally came with ralleys.

Rallyes for several reasons. #1 they came on it. #2 they look better. #3 I like steelies but on bare bones street brawler cars, convertible Cudas (even with Hemi's) don't really fit into that theme IMO.

Cool, thanks for the reply. I was kind of leaning that way. Were black steel rims available on 71 cudas? Was it just 71 hemi cudas that got them?

Yes, but they weren't an option, they were standard. Early 71 cars had body color steel wheels, later 71's got black wheels regardless of body color

Ryan, I have enjoyed following your post. Very cool car. I have a '71 GB2 car that I thought would be back from paint by now, but I'm still waiting for the body shop to finnish things up.
