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.

Sounding off.....72 convertible qcode, rest-mod to an R-code+

 

.


 

 

73 351c-2v, C6

 

"Preciuos color" mine is mustang "1995" Special White, just a couple tones lighter!

I picked my mustang up from an older couple that rarely drove the car. Do not think they realized what I had in store for it but as soon as I saw the car in their garage I had a vision of how it would look under my care. No kidding, I knew exactly how this project would progress and more importantly how it would feel to it drive it through the orchards and vinyards that are in my area. The car has not disappointed my expectations. Yeah it's rough around the edges, the interior needs work and it's never fast enough, but I love it just the same. I may be a bit jaded but I honestly think these are among best looking convertibles ever built. Top up or down! Glad to be a part of the group.

Affirmative, 95 special white w/black interior q code to R-code+, most current photo as it is in a deep sleep for the winter, I added some "Perrier" to seal the deep sleep.

::welcome::Light Lime Mustang. See my profile, over 200 clips as well planning a hydraulic overhaul on suspension for those drives off the smoothest roads. Won't upgrade Ford Top Loader Wide Ratio Hurst manual 4-speed so am hiding an additional "16" gallon tank. With Multi-Forced Induction into a 351 Cleveland upgrade R code w/366 hp from engine w/extra tank, gives me confidence on my 3.5:1 rear axle ratio to give it better chance to get it to the next gas stations. As you see, 95 mustang special white paint but chromed in w/plans of chrome trim around in engine compartment just as NASA hood ports are chromed rather staying with original bells and whistles w/apron, stripes, under valour, and rear wing but a solid mover w/245's X 15 X 8's on rear and 225 x 15 X 7's in front all around weighting in at 3,800lbs+ Currently in a deep sleep for the winter with a "Perrier" to seal the deal, ha.

Mike, you're just wanting to rub it in and cause me to drool. ;)

 

Don,

it looks like you might have to buy a convertible to fill that need :)

1971 F code, red with black top and interior, 429 4V, C-6, 9" posi rear with 3:31 gears, 15" Magnum 500 wheels with BFG tires and 3" dual flowmaster exhaust.

Don - I have had a 30 year not so secret desire for one of these, I neglected to tell the wife until it is was basically on the truck from Florida. I still have not seen, touched or driven mine but am obviously already paying for it... he he. When it actually gets here (fingers crossed early next week) I will be able to refer to it as "The dog house" cause I'll be spending some time in it. Wait, where's the down side??

Oh yeah, the side stripes and rear spoiler are already in the garage.

Any 7173 convert is worth at least $4K IMHO! ;)

We've finished painting the 71 convertible and are in the process of replacing the top. Soon as that is done, the exterior work will be done and I'll post pics. Then on to the engine!

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.

 

 

Very sharp! No matter what I do with my 72 vert, it will never beat the authentic and rare as the 72 sprint convertible. One question I have though is, "as the 2nd or 3rd generation is called the fox body, as I researched to 73 mustangs, the 1st generation from 7

1-73, the designer's name is Bunkie Knudsen of which the higher ups were not too happy with the design and back in the days called it a dinosaur, but...." Do you know what this body style is called?

From my understandings, there was no 'platform' type name associated to the 1971-1973 Mustangs. I have heard them referred to as the 4th generation of the classic Mustangs. (64.5-73)

 

All Mercury Cougars up to 1973 shared platforms with the Mustangs. (From 1974-1979 Cougars switched to a Thunderbird based platform, then in 1980 they also moved to the Fox platform.)

The Fox platform was originally developed for the 1978 Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr. Ford engineers decided to utilize it as well as they developed the next Mustang and then Cougar.

Mine is a73 F code. Has a reman 302 w/ orig 2bbl, bright greengold with painted 72 white stripes. NASA hood, Mach 1 grill, white interior, black carpet, white roof. C4 with 2:79 rear, magnums, headers w/ flowmaster 40s. Fun, fun, fun car.

I gather your stang is driven often. ie 302 engine w/NASA hood. that being the case. Might feel more secure having brighter tail lights. ie LED Sequential Tail Lights. If I can figure out how to get my video on board, I would be able to demonstrate not only how brighter they are but also a further modification of how great the rear looks with a bar light hooked up to the 4-ways and brakes, placed just above the license plate. However, for some reason on your site as well as previous, just does not even want to accept still shots.

Help the man out. I would love to see some sequential tail lights as I am considering some for mine. :)
