    Nice car, I recall its ebay listing. I noticed in the listing it had patched trans lines and wondered why it was missing the passenger side sport mirror.

    What are you planning to work on?

    I “think” more ’77 F-bodies were made without the Right side mirror than were made with the Right side mirror (all F’s combined). No facts to back that statement up, though – just an observation.

    I didn’t see the T-tops, until just now.

    A very nice car – and I agree, I doubt very many were made with the same options.

    Great looking car.

    I have a 78 Black R/T. Was curious as to which engine your car has and the color of it?
