Sound off if you have a convertible


Recommended Posts

I have a secret desire/ambition (don't tell my wife) to get a 71 or 72 convertible and was wondering how many convertibles there are on here.

 

So, if you have a 71-73 convertible make a post to this thread listing the year, engine and any other options you'd like to share and let's see how many we can get listed.

 

Example:

71 M-code, ram air, Lime with white top.

72 spint - one of fifty made. I owned another one in the 80's (yes I have owned 2 of the 50 ) and I sold a blue 73 conv to buy the 2nd 72 sprint. I sold the 1st sprint a long time ago.

Mine is a 73 convertible that was ordered with a Q code, 4 speed toploader, 3.50 trac-lock, well optioned (has pretty much everything I would have ordered) and soon to be returned to the original med. blue aqua with hood black-out and side stripes (It was repainted Acapulco Blue a long time ago and even I kinda wish Ford had stuck with Grabber Blue until the end of 73 but I'll give the Aqua a try for now.)
