Lot #971 - Tasteful modifications give this rare drophead coupe the style and elegance of Europe's finest classics. Just 502 RMDs were produced with an estimated 50 survivors. Modern running gear, including a V6 engine, automatic transmission, power steering and power disc brakes give it the performance and reliability of a modern vehicle. Air conditioning adds the final element for a surprisingly comfortable ride. This car was completely restored over the last three years; new or rebuilt components include: 4.3 Liter Chevrolet V6 with 4 barrel carburetor, 200 automatic transmission, S-10 differential with power disc brakes, new Mustang II front suspension with power steering and 11" power disc brakes, new exhaust, fuel and brake lines, new aluminum radiator and fuel tank, new gauges and wiring harness, new aftermarket heat and air conditioning, all new interior, new Stayfast convertible top, new pad and headliner, new solid walnut interior trim, and new wide white radial tires on 15" wheels, all new chrome or re-plate. The car will cruise at well over 70mph, and with over 3,000 miles since completion has been thoroughly tested and sorted.
