I just got this in the mail the other day, I thought I would share it with you guys.

its a 1972 Mustang Sprint, by Ertl, it was made back in 2004 for the 40 year anav.

 

I have seen them on E-bay every now and then, and they sell for crazy money ($130 - $180) I did a Google search, and found a hobby shop in Canada www.eautomobilia.com, and he had one in stock for only $59. so I grabbed it.

 

now I have ten 1:64 Johny Lightning Sprint Convertibles, and one Ertl 1:18 scale fastback, now I need to convince my wife I need the 1:1 scale :)

Mike I just did above,

and here is more of them, I still have many more diecast hiding in Boxes. I have been collecting them since 1991, and not everything, just the cars I would love to own.

I'd love to find a convertible, I'm modifying a plastic kit to make one, its not done yet.

 

I'd love to convince one of the diecast manufacturing companies to make one.

i've got the 1:1 scale if you have to have one. Didnt know they made the 1:18 scale....nice score

 

it was a limited production in 2004 for the 40th year.

 

as for the 1:1 scale, that might have to wait

Why can't I find a coupe ?????

 

Because no one makes one :-(

 

Sadly, there are almost no 69-73 Mustang coupes plastic models or diecast in any scale. Sportsroofs are the most popular followed by convertibles. Of the over 1,000 Mustang diecast and models I have, probably less than 10% are coupes. It's not that I don't like coupes, they just do not make them.

I resemble that remark. :rolleyes:

Yea, I know Danbury will bring big money but, I cannot even find one to see how much big money is. Unless someone on here has one that they would be willing to part with.

I think Testors made a 72-73 Mach1 in pewter which go for about $30.

If this is the model they want to represent themselves with, I'd hate to see the production one. But, none-the-less, little paint and patience could make one of these into anything.

Wow I thought sun star had better quality. This would take a lot of patience and a new stripe kit and that's just the start.

 

Thanks for the reply but, I will wait for a better one. Soon or later someone will have a real 429 mustang in pewter.

Since the coupes are far more affordable, buy the real thing and forgo the models, I say. A beater coupe with some minor TLC can make for a good daily driver.

Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.

Just be glad it doesn't say "GRANDE" on the sail panels. Try explaining that to them.

Haha right. Even UPS guy delivers y package to my neighbors house that they moved out of. I call them up and tell them my tracking shows delivered but no package, we'll the UPS driver calls me and says "oh your house is the one with the Mach1 out back? I left it at the next house" I just said thanks and walked over to the abandoned house and retrieved my package but seems all 7173's are Mach 1s.

Take that as a hint: Fill the other house with Mach 1's*.
