Steve Paradise's 1969 442 Convertible
1969 442 Convertible. Platinum/Black/Black. Options: PS, PDB, Turbo 400 automatic, 8 track tape player w/ sparkomatic cassette adapter, upper dash ventilation, hood stripes. I found the car in Hemmings, located in Minnesota (I live in NY).
The previous owner did an incredible body off resto in 1990 and then took the car to the Olds Nationals in Ohio where it scored 965 pts and took 1st place. It subsequently won many first prizes at state meets throught the midwest.
The car still looks like it was restored yesterday! I have all the original documentation including protect-o-plate, manuals, key knockouts, window sticker and brochures.
Although I treat it well, it is NOT a trailer queen. We drive it and enjoy it. It runs like a dream. The only concessions to driveability I've made are shocks, redline radials and electronic ignition conversion.
