All are Auto, and one is sold on that Colorado listing. Test drove the blue one and it was horrible.

if you look in the other for sale/wanted threads we had the same discussion and there's a few manuals but they're not convertibles all sedans

at this point i dont think many people bought the convertible with a 5 speed

Here's one in Oregon. The information is a little sparse, but it looks like it might be decent for the price.

And one more!

Well folks, I did it! Found a beautiful 2005 PT Dream Cruiser 4 convertible 5spd in CA and just drove it back to CO through the 112 desert. I must say it tried to overheat quite a bit, so I turned off the ice cold AC, dropped the top and cranked the heat. I was worried I bought a bad car, then I noticed all the brand new vehicles on the side of the road as well, spewing steam.



I guess slow and steady wins the race. Also noticed it smoked allot upon startup, asked previous owner of the always used 91oct and he said no, sometimes 89. I figured it was likely deposits on exhaust valves, so a bottle of Seafoam, a bottle of stop leak and another bottle of 5w30 and it appears the smoking has stopped, idle is better, and oil isn't being consumed.

I think it's a great buy at $3k, just allot of work to get it back. Now the only thing I need are a set of those 5 Spoke GT wheels in alloy, anyone have a set for sale?
