Big block + convertible = nice project Muscle car. Here's a true S code 390-4v big block Cougar convertible. There were only 344 convertibles made that year with the 390 FE big block. It's not an Eliminator or anything, but definitely worth restoring.
It's time spent in North Dakota is obvious by the rust, but it could be worse considering the amount of salt they used to use there on the roads. It looks like this was a project someone started and then let sit. Some work has been done, like stripping the paint and replacing a few body panels. But it has a ways to go still.
