    Good day JMFC,

    IT is usually a god idea to do a search on here with the chassis number to see if there are other threads on a particular car. If so, then one can simply add to the previous thread(s) in order to consolidate the car's history, etc. That said there are threads on 30721 along with a few posts referencing it:

    etc...

    Perhaps we should make this one the most current and archive the info within the Ebay ad?

    Cheers,

    Sam

    This one sounds like an engineering feat properly achieved by Bob Norwood's shop. This is his website: Norwood Auto Italia

    I remember being a kid and first reading about his creations - think perhaps it was for a Road & Track speed shootout where he brought a twin turbo GTO with a huge scoop over the roof? It takes some gravitas to do the work he does and a rather heavy wallet to cover the mods.

    Unlike the silver Twin Turbo 400 that has been languishing for years with little interest, this one looks like a complete interior/exterior/mechanical restoration was done based on the earlier pics when it was green. Convertibles may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the Norwood mod's as well as the car's overall presentation certainly make it more enticing.

    It has now been listed at the www.bringatrailer.com website here:
