It is a convertible.

It converted from a nice car to a POS.

It’s not a 71 but hopefully a 4 spd car

But red interior

Pump up the tire and you got something there

It's got a good parking brake to stay put on that incline.

If the tops aren't broken, they're worth more than the rest of the car.

Are they 78 tops or 71?

Some cars just get neglected and in worst cases the owner's simply won't let them go. This '67 GTO triple black convertible sat in a garage across from me for 13 years and I made several offers to buy it. Finally, the deceased owner's nephew took it back to Ohio. The engine was missing intake/carbs/heads but it had a racing heritage; the last pic is me after helping the nephew push it out of the garage. Perfect, rust free body, apparently "no hit".

Literally, "the one that got away".

Front nose, rear bumper, and side gills/fenders, hood, and gas cap emblem are 81.
I thinks it's an error and was probably meant to be posted as an 1981.

I was wondering where the chrome bumpers were....kind of a big deal on a 1971.
