Bob Brody of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, had a dream: to find the 1967 Chevrolet SS427 Convertible his older brother Dennis had bought new from a Vancouver dealer. This was no garden-variety Chevy however, as it was a Canadian-built SS427 4-speed, one of only 38 built at the Oshawa, Ontario, plant and believed to be one of just six convertibles. Brody subsequently owned the car for a time before selling it, but it never left his memory, and he soon began a search to reacquire it. Brody searched high and low for the extremely rare car, exhausting many resources along the way. The search did not locate the exact same SS427 convertible that he owned years prior, but it did turn up another identically optioned example, on which Brody then commissioned a professional restoration by local legend Gary Grant of Maple Ridge. Brody was able to track down and buy the car’s original L36 427/385 HP engine from a New York State Rodder, reinstalling it with the 4-speed and the original rear end. Finished in the correct combination of Madeira Maroon paint with a red interior and white top, the attention to detail exhibited during restoration was second to none and sure to please the show judges. The car was then shown at the 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago, where it earned 985 of 1,000 points, Gold Certification and the Floyd Garrett Best of Show award. Following that, 11 of the deductions were then corrected, and the car won Best in Class at the Crescent Beach Concours d’Elegance, with internationally recognized judge John Carlson giving it his highest praise. Always stored in a climate-controlled garage, this fantastic SS427 convertible is an extreme rarity in the full-size drop-top muscle-car segment and a standout collector piece.
