What do you think was the best year for the 442. So many great ones to pick from.

Even though my car is a 71....I still think the 70 is the nicest looking.

Although.....I do believe the 71/72 cars have a nicer looking front end. The 70 has the better rear bumper and has the more powerful engine options.

Actually thinking about the idea of selling my ride to free up cash for a 68 442 I like them so much....

Just remember 68' was a one off year. Some parts are practically impossible to find for reasonable prices. I need a driver side hood hinge bad and the only one I can find has been on eBay forever for 225.00 on buy it now. F that!

If you get too frustrated looking for parts on your convertible, I'd be happy to take it off your hands :lol:
