    NEED ALL MEMBERS TO RESPOND PLEASE!

    73 Q original with original owner except 2nd top. Marti lists 1 of 1 with options. For those who have verts that want the tops to last like mine, I suggest washing with johnsons baby soap in the bar and a soft brush. I think it is the baby oil in the soap that keeps the top soft.

    Correct decals for 73 Q code engine bay

    I hope this helps, I am including pics of my engine compartment stickers which are all original. I must mention she is a CA. car if this makes a difference.

    73 Black Q Code Convertible

    A nice looking vert. Just so you know the wheels on the car are special if they are the forged aluminum. I don't know if you saw my post on the secret on making tops last. Use Johnsons baby soap in the bar if still available and a soft brush. There is a small amount of baby oil in the soap and...

    Found the Marti report for my 73 Convertible. When my wife pulls it out, I will also post the original window sticker. I bought the car new in 73 and thought she might be special but not quite like this. Tell me what you think. I am currently looking for someone to repair the radiator.
