Hey Jon - Welcome. Has Spring arrived in Norway yet?
Nice looking ride in your profile, was she local to Norway already or did you import her?

Power windows are a convenient option in a convertible especially when caught in sudden rain with the top down.
What do you mean Electric cab? Power top maybe? Power tops are very nice and make the magic of the convertible, especially for kids sitting in the back as it goes up.
Deluxe interior is also nice in a convertible, many people elected for standard figuring it would be exposed to all sorts of rough stuff in nature and in passenger traffic -everyone want a ride in a convertible - a coupe doesn't see all that.
The tilt-wheel comes in handy for older folks these days. Easy in and easy out. Do you also have the optional wood looking three spoke steering wheel or the standard wheel?
327 Engine mated with a TH 350 Automatic transmission, is a nice drive-train option so is the shifter on the floor? With or without console?
Remote drivers side mirror on a convertible is always a luxury since you buy a convertible expecting to be driving it in nice weather with the top down and usually that also means the windows down, easy to adjust a manual mirror. So nice to see someone spent money on the remote mirror.

Incase you haven't stopped by Jon's profile to take a look at her yet, here she is.

Re: New member 1969 Convertible

The car has floor shifter and console.
Imported the car from Gøteborg in Sweden into Norway.
They had imported it from Suits. It has been a Suits car from 1969 until 2011 when it became a Swedish car.
Produced in US and shipped to Suits as an X11 car. nearly untouched and I belive it is Matching number Drive train on it.
It seems to be original panels all over. it has been repaired a bit in the floor pan behind passenger seat.

I have ordered new Mirror to replace the damage one and also ordered all new Weatherstrips on doors and top.

Yes the mention Cab is as you says Powertop ...
Some time it is hard to find all correct words when writing in English.

I have added som more pictures :-)
