Dad has an S Type with T's. For the 1980 model year I think only a few hundred Dips were made with T's. Really a rare option.
thought i'd seen every dip advert. nice to see a new one. groovy and brown!
What is dad doing with his T-top Dippy?
Enjoying it. We do a lot of shows and cruises together. Dad's car is powered by a roller cammed 408 stroker, backed by a 518 and 9.25" rear with 3.90 gears. Frame ties, FF t-bars, cop sway bars, lots of other bits.
I did a build thread for my car last year. I should do another for his.
Yes, that would be great. Do you guys ever do the Woodward Dream Cruise?
Every year for the last ten or so. It's a religious pilgrimage at this point. Had a family wedding scheduled on the official today and I told them, "congratulations, sorry I have to miss it," heh. You ever make it up?
If I get a chance in the next couple nights here I'll post the build thread in the projects forum.
It’s a new family tradition for me. Next year will be year three.
Your dad is BA.
Yeah, that's a nice coupe and a real pleasure to see both rides in person!
If you guys want a "Canada" only model, it is the 1980/81 Plymouth Caravelle ! . . . check this T Top one for sale :
1980 Plymouth Caravelle. T Top Car. | Classic Cars | Calgary | Kijiji
Thats super cool.
Cool stuff. Were they factory Mopar tops or Hurst? Many early T's from all car companies were.
Well "factory" is a bit of a misnomer . . . pretty sure they had "Cars & Concepts" do them . . . American Sunroof supplied/did the sunroof cars . . .but you ordered the car from the factory that way - with T tops
and he wants way to much money for that thing! just wondering, is that black plymouth grille OEM or painted? i know those caravelles came out before the fury but i've never seen another pic of a cavavelle with a black grille.
Pretty sure my Caravelle was same black in the grille . . . .
i'd love to find a black plymouth grille. most are grey but i like the way the black on the dodge looks but i don't want to put a dodge grille on my plymouth
Oh??? How so?
Depending on the overall shape the car is in, so all the other stuff that's normally not visibile in a few photos, that may not actually be a bad price!
My coupe was torn down to literally just the shell and a full re-build was north of $20k CAD, that includes the engine, transmission and ever little nut and cilp. Point being: $14K may not be a bad start...
I agree with you regarding the cost of what it takes to rebuild . . . however, what the actual market will bear for the car . . . . he has had it for sale for 6mths now (on and off), but no takers at his price - tops "might" be $10k ??? . . .
