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.

 

 

.

 

73 H-code, ram air, 351c 2V, Ginger interior, Yellow Gold, Black top. Has black flames that will be painted once I save up for it.

A two-for-one post, as I currently have a 72 and 73.  See if you can guess my favorite angle for these cars.

1973 Mustang Convertable 76D.  Direct from the original window sticker:

351 2V H code, FMX AT, Blue glow 3k, CA emission, instrument group, 14" wide oval white letters, convenience group, PS, tilt, leather wrapped steering wheel, console, deluxe bumper group, AC, AM/FM, decor group, color racing mirrors, tint, PW, aluminum wheels as well as matching pony floor mats.  When I got it, it still had the original spare tire in it.  (I'd still have it but a tire shop mistakenly discarded it.)

 

The car was bought from the original owner in AZ about three years ago and I  shipped it to Maine when I moved.  Their main residence was in CO and they stored it in AZ using it to get groceries and to go to the post office.  Its a bone stock survivor time capsule with less than 27,000, it still has all the smog equipment on it. A repair slip from 2011 shows that its only been driven about 1500 miles since then.  

 

In the original clear plastic FORD trash bag is the owners manual, owners card, Warranty Information booklet, FORD oil selection cut out,  consumer bulletin with stopping distance tire pressures and new bumper info as well as an extended warranty card due to the fact it was a dealer demo in Los Angeles.  

 

My plans are to keep Salli mostly stock (perhaps some performance mods, keeping all the original equipment boxed and tagged.)  The body has some door dings and bumps and scraps, but I'm just going to keep it as is with all her patina and character.  The one thing that needs replacement is the white top and I'm going to go with a black one.  

 

Thats it.  She lives in a heated garage and taken out for sunny day trips, cruises and car shows.  Once we get the new top we'll venture out and explore more of the Maine cost further from home.

New member here.  Got my 73 Q code 4V 4 speed back in October 2018. Stock with 52000 original miles. It was in pretty good shape overall. A few dings/scrapes on the body but I'm okay with that, keeps me from freaking out when I take it for a drive. Have the original wheels in addition to the ones in pic. It needs a new roof but first doing some basic maintenance. Have replaced spark plugs & wires, now cleaning & rebuilding carb. Shocks are next.

I just joined up tonight (july 2019) though I've been sneaking around in the background for a few years...I have a 73 Convertible I bought back in 2003. It was originally the blue glow but when I went to get it painted, the painter wanted to try something different and I agreed...I like the color but there are some dings and bubbles (it was painted about 10yrs ago).  It's not near as pretty as many of the other cars posted on here, but hey, this one's MINE so it is the BEST!  

The car is the 351c 4bbl (I forget the code) and the previous owner hotrodded it some (can't find the receipts right now).  It's an automatic, no AC (it originally lived in MN, guess they figured they don't need AC in MN).  It's got some issues (which is why I joined the forum, to see if anybody has ideas). I really wanted one of the 71-73s when I was shopping just because you don't see near as many as the 65-70s and these later models are just so distinctive.  Anyway, nice to see lots of other nice looking convertibles out there.20170218-104640-2.jpg

Tilt column was an option I have 4 with it. I also have a 73 Mach 1 that has 41 options on it so this car is pretty light on options, lol. I do like it have a yellow 73 vert myself my driver. Get your Marti report tells all about your car.

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

1973 

Was originally blue with a blue interior. White roof.  Had 302 according to the codes. 

Last American Owner had it repainted Black. Had a 351 windsor transplanted into it some time in its life. He wanted to stick a 460 stroked to a 545 in it with kaase P51 heads. Was offering it for sale with either the 351 or the 460 block bored out and had stroker kit, not assembled. no heads or fruit so I opted for the 351 as compliance would be difficult in NZ. 

351 now rebuilt 30 thou over. 400Hp. Edelbrock E street heads, performer cam intake and 600cfm carby.
