1975 was the last year for these GM B-Body convertibles. Did the owner buy it knowing that? There was an almost 50% uptick in sales of them that year, so undoubtedly many did, knowing that the days of the big American ragtop was apparently over.

Although convertibles did make a bit of a comeback, it was never quite the same. If for no other reason than the fact that there would never be cars this size. Or engines this size. That alone makes these the end of an end.

This is how vinyl tops are supposed to look: with a real purpose in life, not a pretense.
