    Default Purchasing a 71 centurion

    I am pretty sure that I will purchase a 1971 centurion that a friend of mine has had for several years. I will go to inspect it shortly. I would like advice as to things I should look for especially with frame, rust, and any other major issues. Wonder if you folks can suggest Specific things I should look for on this car.

    It is the two door convertible. I already know the convertible top is shot and the mech needs two parts to fix a bad joint. I know its been kept well and runs fine.

    Check the floors and quarter panels near the rearseat and the trunk floor
    the drain from the rear of the convertible top has a gutter that will be deteriorated and leaking at these places
    Know that there is no sheetmetal available for these cars
