Great looking car and a Q. I have 72 Q and like yours they did not get Traction Loc? Decor Group is great option on vert. I will probably make the Charlotte Hornets Nest show but not to Florida this year too much going on.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Hello from Phoenix! That's a clean looking convertible. Are the seats original?

 

My interior is the same only dirty and marked up from years of use. :)

 

I am glad you found us.

100% original, only thing on her that isn't would be the aftermarket cassette deck. I'm working on getting the correct Philco am/fm radio, but can't find one in good enough condition, that will match interior condition.

Hi David,

 

and welcome from Brisbane, Australia. Beautiful Vert you have there. I'm very jealous as white is my favorite color, especially triple white. Dressing it up with all the mat black war paint and goodies to the Mach 1 theme, is a look i would go for in a big way myself. In your case, you probably would want to keep the car original i would imagine.

Thanks for the kind words, and yes I have to keep her original as posible. But I also love the black accent stripes, spoilers and NASA hoods, maybe my next mustang. ::thumb::

Yes, I am running the 3.25:1 rear axel (9 code) which had traction lock, also competition suspension.

Beautiful car! I would love to have a convertible, especially a Q code car. Nice find! As David mentioned above, axle code 9 is for a conventional 3.25 ratio (open). Traction Lok units would have code R for the axle code. Not sure why they would not pair a Traction Lok unit with the Q code but it was an extra cost option ($42.64) in '73

Guess I read that incorrect, bummer, but still love it. :D
