Who's Got A Drop Top??? I do!!!! I purchased this 1977 Buick Regal Convertible last June from a junkyard here in Nashville. I received a call about this car as it was coming across the scale. They held the car for me and I was able to purchase the car the next day. Everything convertible specific is complete and the car is actually in decent condition just missing a "few" parts. The car is a good builder with all the convertible conversion parts complete, a very good body, buckets, console, original engine/transmission, 8.5 rear-end and more. I have tried a web search and only found 1981 Up conversions and a list of companies that converted G body cars. I have not found any information on 73-77 cars and convertible conversions. I Finally had a chance to unload the car off the trailer and vacuum/remove all the junque and nuts out of the car. The trunk is very good with a few pinholes and one hole needing repaired. The front floor pans are great while the rear footwell pans need replaced. The floor under the rear seat is surprisingly good. The top has shrunk so the top will not go all the way up however the frame is good and looks well built. ALL the convertible top mechanism and hydraulics are complete. Under the hood is fairly complete less the alternator and radiator. The top frame appears to specifically fabricated for this conversion. The top frame is well built and well designed. The hydraulic cylinders, pump, hoses and control switch are typical GM. Through a couple of phone calls I have found a good trunklid, hood header panel, radiator, maybe donor floor pans, wheel opening moldings and more from a friend who has a junque yard with several Regals in stock. This guy never crushes anything! He also may have a 76-77 Buick Century header/grill which is what was used in NASCAR. I think that looks much better than the Regal grill. I will probably buy both is he had them. All in all a neat car considering I purchased the car sitting on the ground with no wheels/tires and sitting in que in a junkyard to be crushed!!!! One thing you should notice is how NICE the doors still fit on the car with absolutely no sag. The door gaps on the front or the door and back of the door are superb on both sides. Look at the driver's side window fit on the front windshield. The glass does not fit that good on most hardtops! Another thing I like on this car is the top design. So many conversions have horrible top lines that detract from the car. The top on this car particularly the rear slope of the top fits the design of the car nicely. This conversion would actually look good with the top UP!!! Unfortunately I did not get a picture of the car sitting on the ground in the JY however I do have pictures of the car on the trailer after installing wheels/tire to load the car. The rest of the picture are after I spent about an hour cleaning all the crap out of the car. I have not specifically determined who built the car however it appears a company called Emess Coachbuilders in Clearwater Florida may have built the car when the car was new. Emess built numerous Monte Carlo and Grand Prix Convertibles so a Regal would not be a stretch. This car came to Tennessee from Florida. Any help or information on the builder of this Regal convertible is welcomed! Here are the pictures in a Photobucket account. Enjoy!!! http://s263.photobucket.com/albums/i...20June 2011/ UPDATE! Today I finally brought the car into the shop to start this project and bring this car back to life!!! I found a nice hood to replace the MISSING hood, a nice trunk lid and a nice right front headlight bezel assembly that has not yet been installed. More to come!
