Convertibles of that year were no where near as safe as today's ether.

Seen it and it needs a hub bearing replaced. I'd buy it but I don't have the money at the moment.

seen it some days ago, that SVT brake setup on ebay, for sure it needs bearing changed. anyways, they look god in thumbnail, but once you look at the pics... someone half-ass sprayed paint over very badly rusted parts = as soon as you install it and expose to weather, the rust will come back rapidly. So if you have SVT front brakes you're better off just reconditioning the one you have. If don't have it and want to install... well, it may be a deal considering one new knuckle costs over $150
