Sound off if you have a convertible

My XR7 originally came with a 351, which was long gone by the time I pulled the car from a field. Originally was a light red color. Repainted with a dark red at some point, came with white upholstery and top and black carpet.

 

AC, power windows and top, 9" 3.00 gears, power disc in the front with drums in the back.

I picked up my Ford Mustang convertible last week:

 

1973 Q-CODE , C6, bright Red, white interior, white top, decor group, NASA hood, TuTone hood paint ( hood is just red but will be restored ).

 

The car has lot's of options ( check my deluxe Marti report which I have posted as well).

 

My plan is to completely restore it. Not sure yet if it will remain bright red with a white interior...

I did grab a pic before I stuffed it in the garage. Like I said it is rough but underside and typical rust areas are surprisingly good for the price paid.

I have a 71 Convertible I am rebuilding. Maybe someone on this sight can explain something to me. There were 34K Mach 1 built in 1971 and only 6K convertibles. So  how is it that the Mach 1 sells for more??? Always thought Convertibles sell for more than Fastbacks and the less made the greater the value. This makes no sense to me? Can anyone help?????

How rare a car is doens't determine value.  There are only a handful of Pinto's left but they don't sell for much..

 

People identify the 71 to 73 model as 'The mach 1'.    Many people prefer the looks of the Mach 1 sports roof over the convertible as well. It's rather iconic and has a certain 'muscle car' look to it.   And in some places a convertible just isn't practical.    So supply and demand is at work.  While the supply of the Mach 1's may be higher so is the demand and therefore a higher price can be asked.

 

I had a Mach 1 but it was wrecked.  I live in Arizona so a convertible is a great car to own here.   I love my 73 and have owned it for over 30 years but there are still times I kinda wish I had the Mach 1.

@ convertible selling for more-'they do' but you take a 71 mustang w/429 or 71 stang Boss 351 compared to a 71 vert w/stock 302 non Boss, and at the top value as a #1(not on the road w/low miles and only trailered from car show to...events) will go as high blue book at @ 78,000 then the Boss 351 knock off @ 20,000, the 302 for the convertibles only a few thousand more than the hard tops and this year the highest of the 71-3's be under 25,000.

I've been a member a long time and finally read through this thread from Don and have enjoyed seeing all these fine cars. To cjevans, very impressed with your restoration of the copper car and love your gold glow 73 too  (I'm embarrassed to post pics of my cars after seeing the copper car)! :shootself:   Where did you get the hose for the carbon canister? I will be selling three of my cars in the next month to fund other projects and will post pics of those cars soon. Later I plan to post some pics of some of my other "keeper" cars when I can get them out of the garage and wipe off the dust!
