I've loved Mustangs since I was a kid, and 71-73 have been my dream car since the first time I layed eyes on a 71 Boss 351 in a mustang book I got. I hadn't considered a convertible until the opportunity presented itself for me to own 1 (I liked the look of them but thought i'd have a sport roof ). I just bought a 1972 Mustang Convertible with 351 2V, power windows, and factory ac, and am loving it. It has just over 43k original miles (a tiny rust spot behind the drivers rear wheel is all I could find) and has been in the same family since new.

Howdy from Phoenix! I would love to see some pictures. I had a 73 Mach 1 that was totalled and I replaced it with a convertible. These were my first and second cars.

 

While I miss the coolness of the sports roof and the uniquness of the fold down rear seat I do have to admit that I love driving with the top down. Here is Phoenix the weather is just starting to turn nice. ;)

Glad the deal went through. Welcome to the herd. A word of caution if you try to remove the power window bezels please find something that explains how to do it. If you simply pry them off you break the clips that are not available. They are like gold will get back on repo for them soon during the winter. You have to slide a thin scale under the chrome bezel in a certain area to release the clip and they come right off otherwise they break.

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

Welcome from Oklahoma.

 

Nice to see an original Decor Group car with the correct hood and correct (no sidestripes) look.

Welcome from West TN. You have joined the most informed and family friendly site for the 71-73 mustangs. We have very knowledgeable folks in a lot of areas here to help with questions and welcome anything you can contribute to site as well. That is a great looking low mileage car. On a separate note are you close to Ogden? My car was originally ordered and sold through Ogden Ford at 3330 Wall Ave in Ogden. The dealership was sold to Westfield Ford many years ago, but I think the building is still there as a tire shop. Someday I would love to find some old Ogden Ford memorabilia. Tried a Craigslist ad with no luck. If you are near that area PM me. I would really appreciate some local contacts to help me find something from the old dealership.

I'm about an hour south of Ogden, but my parents live 15 minutes from there (I have 2 brothers even closer to Ogden). I'll keep an eye out and ask them to do the same. What kind of stuff are you looking for?

Anything from Ogden Ford. I was told there was a junkyard in the area with a lot of old fords in it. It would be REALLY cool to find one of the dealer emblems they attach to the decklid when they sold a car. If they have any luck finding any Ogden Ford memorabilia I would greatly appreciate it. That would be really cool to display with the car.
