70-72 had different vents and if there is no "chrome" it has to be a 68.

Not so sure? Check the lock, looks like could be 69?





Nice come back!

....Even though you can't really see the rear bumpers, it's the vents and no fender emblem.

Only '74 and '75 were convertibles with no chrome bumpers (read: urethane) front and rear.

But the side grill is wrong for those years.
