Welcome from Oklahoma.

 

If it is indeed a 1972 R code convertible, it is one of 13.

(You probably already knew that... :))

 

Edit- Now that I am on my computer I see the 72 conv is a Q code - also very rare! :)

Wow! Nice convertible!

 

Thanks, I had to have one after seeing one coming at me from a distance...thinking to myself "man, that car is low and wide, looks MEAN"

I wish! Had a chance to get one a long time ago in Spokane WA. but they wanted more than I had....

No it's a "Q" code, actually rarer (according to my Marti) than the "R" code Mach I have! You can check the Marti's for both where I registered them here.


Welcome from Denmark.. :) Beautiful car you have there !

 

Thanks, glad to be here


Thanks to ALL the "welcome" posts!

Looks like there is some confusion.....I have two 72's, a "Q" code convertible and an "R" code Mach....sorry for that

Welcome Grant, from a fellow CS and R code (1971) owner. Is the R code finished yet?

(and I saw the R code convertible many years ago in person. I doubt it was real because it looked like the inner fender VIN's had been cut from another car and welded in to that one. Not a very good job at it either, so don't sweat losing a chance at it.)

Will do.... I occasionally get over there if I see a particularly tasty car to check out and possibly buy.

Thanx Ron, I'm already loving the site!

Hey Luke, I have my share of vices....--hic,... hic ;), tahks foe the weelcom, wait,.. wait,.. what's happened to my spelling??

 

I may be headed down south to Australia/New Zealand this winter as I've saved up a gazillion miles on my Alaska Airlines credit card. I'm an Alaska, Bristol Bay commercial fisherman and get a lot of time off to, Hic*, hic*...Travel and work on my cars. I've got a place in Costa Rica also if you'd like to visit this winter...OH, that's right it'll be summer there! Come any ways.... WAIT! I don't even know you...

 

Dang! I just realized the "vices" thing was in your signature... You weren't referring to me at all. I thought you had just read my post in the "where did you find your 7173" thread. Oh well, It's to late now.....

Hey Steve! :) We have to quit meeting like this! You saw it too hey. Wasn't it PINK or some such thing??:dodgy:

 

It may have been. All I distinctly remember was the VIN tags, the rust and body damage, and the feeling overall that I wanted nothing to do with it.

 

Both yours are looking good. Makes me want to get going on mine.

Thanks, I registered the Mach this morning, it's been off the road a couple years...still need to wash it and get started on the interior and drivetrain. Sounds like you don't have much room right now....
