  1. Pretty rough body/paint for $10K Maybe there will be a half-off sale in 2017. https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/cto/5867469681.html
  2. +1 WOW that is bad. You can buy it on Ebay - only five days left to bid. http://www.ebay.com/itm/201765730991?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  3. That is an H code so doubtful it was an original four speed car.
  4. Owned by Bill Johnson, former MCA President.
  5. It's crazy how little it sold for on Ebay. $27,500????? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang-Mach-1-/291854230590?forcerrptr=true&hash=item43f3de243e:g:S-8AAOSwdzVXvOO5&item=291854230590
  6. Once again drop a zero from the price and it may sell.;) Was the black coupe supposed to be a Sprint with the chrome front bumper and vinyl top? If so I am putting up both my cars for sale at those prices.
  7. Car isn't worth 1/3 of that price in its current condition. Even if it was a convertible that price would be thousands too high.
  8. Cost to restore all three at least $60K. Value of all three after restored $50K maybe. I'd say he'll be lucky to get $8K for all three.
  9. It wasn't the slowest car out there but was over 40 seconds a lap slower than the fastest car. They qualified 35th out of 58 cars. The 69 Mustang was the #1 qualifier but was a DNF :-(
  10. The numbers check out with Marti's book which is where I assume they came from.
  11. How did I miss that. I've seen people paint the spoilers the same grabber blue as the car. :huh:
  12. Looks to be in very nice condition. Only two things are obvious - you need a urethane front bumper and you'll have to decide whether to keep the non-stock rear spoiler. It's hard to undo holes drilled in your trunk lid.
  13. Sometimes the 71-73 Mach's are in a separate area from the other 71-73's and then the modified cars are in yet another area and the Bosses also .:s
  14. July 2015 pp 16-21 owned by Bob Leenstra. Borders bookstore usually sells this magazine.
  15. Here is the #2 invoice for #297. Dick's car was #266.
  16. Dicks sprint convertible from back in the day. And the others he owned.
  17. Here is the list of known sprint convertible owners. The only catch is the list is 30 years old. However, a few of these folks still own their car. This is the list I got from Dick Smither and over the last 15 years I have tried to keep it up to date. At some point I'll provide an update on this forum as to where the cars are now and how many I have seen in person or have pictures of over the last 30 years. I used to own #283 and # 272. One a side note - I have met three of the 1972 Cherry Blossom princesses in person and am friends with two more on Facebook. Rex
  18. I might as well post the list of sprint convertible VIN's and last known location of each car as a reference since every time a REAL convertible comes up for sale (especially if its been modified) several people jump in with an opinion or guess as to whether it is real or not. For the record I have seen only one clone and have pictures of about half or the original fifty ones. I did NOT take this picture but I found it in a Library in Washington DC. I was used for the newspaper story about the 1972 parade which I found on microfilm at yet another library. Does anyone think this b/w picture is NOT a real sprint. I bet that license plate is a fake too. :rolleyes:
  19. Really sharp! One of the @50 originals?(as Carroll Shelby included in his card collection packages one of the mustang car part companies got exclusivity to sell?) Truly a gem but with the original 6 cylinderd's must be awfully tempted to install a bi-turbo, eh? Mine is number 51. LOL HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN THIS??????? There were fifty sprint convertibles made with 302's. The serial numbers are consecutive. This one ends with 300 and the last VIN of the fifty is 2F03F184305. DO I HAVE TO EXPLAIN THIS AGAIN???????? While this car is clearly modified from the original condition, I have pictures of this REAL sprint convertible from the late 1980's and an article in Mustang Monthly when the previous owner (Mr. Gissal) had the car and it was stock except he added A/C and AM/FM radio. In the 80's Tom Dozier owned this car. I cannot help it if people decide to "improve" on a nice original car.:rolleyes:
  20. I was watching the Indy 500 pre-race show yesterday and there was a feature about a serviceman (Aaron Fields?) that had what looked to be a 73 Mach1 and other Fords. Did anyone know this brave solider who gave his life serving our country? I'm 90% sure his family was from the Indy area.
  21. Is the VIN between 2F03F184256-305? If so, you have a sprint convertible.
  22. Thanks Don, So here is what I posted 4/29/15 as an update to my original post last year when I got a call from Joseph. They are ready to sell this 72 sprint convertible in Florida and it can probably be towed away for $6K. Call Joseph Pellegrino @ 631-365-5891 for more info. He is the brother of the lady selling the car. It goes without saying any member could have called the seller at any time. When I posted the original info about the car last summer I got this note about a month later. "Hey Rex, I am interested in buying this convertible! I have been keeping an eye on the posts about this. If it's for sale around the 5-6k range, I can buy it, if it's over that,you'll have to let me know and I shouldn't have a problem coming up with the extra money." Here was my reply: I'm going to email the lady tonight and send her the pics I took. I'm pretty sure she is clueless about the poor condition the car is in. Once some people look at it and they pass on it expecting a better condition car she may drop the price. She has not even tried to sell it so I'm not sure how much she will ask. I'll tell her realistically it's not worth a lot because it needs a complete restoration. If she advertises it she will get some interest I'm sure but someone is only going to pay more than $6K if they just have to have a convertible and have the funds to fix it up right. I'll let you know what she says. I have see others pay too much in my opinion but these do not come for sale that often in decent condition. For the record I did not PM this person back when I got the contact info for Joseph P - I posted it for all to see. So - you might guess as to who this person is. I did not even remember he sent this note last year when he inquired recently if the car was still for sale. We all know there was a deal in the works but since I am not the one selling the car I told this person to contact Joseph P to hear the answer for himself. I have not had ANY contact with the seller since that late April phone call. It was up to seller to change his mind and back out on the first deal. He should have done the decent thing and said the car was sold - end of story. These conspiracy theories and personal insults are getting old. As this point I do not know if any money has exchanged hands and maybe the 2nd offer will be rescinded - who knows. As a favor to the all forum members I posted info about this car hoping someone would buy it and restore it instead of letting it rot away. I have spent dozens of hours tracking down and following the owners of these cars over a decade but I am NOT and did NOT intend to be the "middleman" in any deal. If sharing an opinion about a cars value and putting making contact info available makes me a middleman then so be it. As the saying goes - no good deed goes unpunished.
  23. Thanks Don Stang. I looked back at my old emails and forgot about this one back in SEPTEMBER. So for the record, the person had been in touch with me that may end up buying the car. Did I contact the seller? NO. Did he contact the seller - ask him - I don't know. Did I broker any kind of deal? NO. Did I tell anyone that contacted me about the car regardless of whether it was six months ago or six hours ago my answer been the same - YOU contact the seller. I am not and do not want to be the middle man. As I stated before - the seller called me Hey Rex, I am interested in buying this convertible! I have been keeping an eye on the posts about this. If it's for sale around the 5-6k range, I can buy it, if it's over that,you'll have to let me know and I shouldn't have a problem coming up with the extra money. I am very excited about this because if you remember I bought the Sprint Fastback back in June and today I bought a Sprint coupe, 302 automatic. I would love to be able to add the convertible now. If I do buy it, I promise it will stay with me and not be resold. I think you already know I'm in NC and it wouldn't be a problem driving down with a car trailer to pick it up. Thank you so much for your time.
  24. As I stated before, I was familiar with the owners wife of the car. I spoke to her brother one time since I was told he was handling the sale. I did not broker anything and had nothing to gain from this. I told all members about the car, gave an opinion about the cars condition and value and provided the sellers contact information. I had no part in what happened after that other than to direct any interested person to the seller if they were interested. When greed enters the picture, this can happen in situations like this.
