Welcome from Oklahoma.

 

Your car appears to be pretty original for a 73 Mexican Sprint sportsroof/fastback. There are a few threads listing them on this forum.

Here is one:

Welcome from western Tennessee! ::welcome:: That's a really unusual paint scheme, but I kinda like it.

As far as finding parts for these cars, Don at Ohio Mustang Supply is a really knowledgeable and helpful guy. He should have most everything you need.

Billy, a 1976 Ford Bronco, also needs a lot of work.

Also, in the queue, a 1950 Ford F1 Panel truck and 1962 Falcon Ranchero

Hola from Phoenix. That's a great looking car. I am glad you found this site.

 

Finding 'original' parts will be hard. You might see something for sale that is factory NOS on Ebay and such.

 

The dash pads that are aftermarket but 'ford tooling' are very good quality and look just like the original.

 

Mexico Sprint seat covers are probably not available. And it is hard to tell from the pics but it looks like your interior door panels are different. How about some more pics!

Mexican Sprint door panels are indeed different - they have more of a cougar look to them. They also came with 351W engines. White with four different accent colors were available - green, reddish orange, brown and light blue. Ive not seen a light blue one yet. All have white interiors with matching accent color that I've found in my research. Yours doesnt have it now but they came with a big Mach 1 sticker on the rear quarters. I really like the color scheme. Very cool cars!

That is a little gem you have there. Beautiful!

 

Incidentally, is is just me, or does Mexican production use the thicker 1969 seat frames?

Nice car! Paint scheme on hood to door panels to roof panel reminds me of Maier's and other Trans-Am / SCCA 7173 race cars of the early 70s... Red rocker panels would set it off real nice imho for the Mexican Sprint theme, as opposed to the US Sprint theme, but what do i know...?
