Once-in-a-Lifetime Find: 1969 Ford Mustang 428 Drag Pack Convertible Is 1 of 8

Once-in-a-Lifetime Find: 1969 Ford Mustang 428 Drag Pack Convertible Is 1 of 8 When Kirt Fryer got a chance to buy a 1971 Mustang convertible, he didn't let international travel hold him back. He packed up and hit the road for Calgary, Alberta, Canada, from his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The fish on the end of this line was a big one: a 1971 Drag Pack Mustang convertible, which fits Fryer's mantra that goes like this: "It's a big-block, it's a Mustang, it's a convertible, then it's pretty rare." Of course, rarity is relative.

If you were born in Los Angeles in the early 1950s, then you possibly could be a car enthusiast. There are massive freeways to navigate from the happening beaches of Santa Monica and Malibu to the chic shops of Beverly Hills to the downtown offices of the financial district, and on to the suburbs of the expansive San Fernando Valley. Life was carefree, families were wholesome, and the car was alive and well.

The Oldsmobile 4-4-2 (also known as the 442 ) is a muscle car produced by Oldsmobile between the 1964 and 1987 model years. Introduced as an option package for US-sold F-85 and Cutlass models, it became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971 , spawned the Hurst/ Olds in 1968

After the Swinging Sixties came the 1970s, and the muscle car evolved to bigger, faster, and better. So it wasn't unusual that my husband, Gary, fell in love with this genre of classic car and began a hobby of collecting them. His first purchase was of a 1971 Plymouth GTX 440 lovingly nicknamed the Beast. This car was sold to purchase the engagement ring for me, his wife to be. I hail from New York City, where my preferred modes of transportation are my feet, followed by subway and taxi.

As an enthusiast, Gary owned a 1971 'Cuda convertible, a 1971 Road Runner 440 Six-Barrel, and a 1971 GTX 440 before he purchased his dream muscle car, an electric blue and white 1971 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 convertible. He wanted a convertible and liked the idea of "fast and furious," but he was never reckless and never ticketed.

We don't know much about the history of the car other than it was bought from another muscle car enthusiast in 1994. The numbers-matching engine and transmission (with Hurst Dual-Gate shifter) were rebuilt, and the car was repainted and had new upholstery installed.

We liked to drive the car down Pacific Coast Highway with the top down, particularly on summer afternoons, and go for brunch and scenic drives up the coast.We did not show the car, but the oohs and aahs from our road companions as well as comments like "nice car," "beauty," and "a blast from the past" added to our drives around town.

Many have an appreciation for the classic muscle car and the care and commitment to preserving the last year this model was manufactured. So enjoy the ride while it lasts!
