1973 mustang sportsroof - 351c 2v - fmx trans.
Cool looking car and an R code to boot, it's definately got rust issues that are going to have to be dealt with sooner rather then later.

I would be very suspicious of this car.

Priced a little high. But it is a R code. Could be a sweet car to have.

Looks like a car I saw at a LI show last year, there are only a few out here so it could be that one, if it's the same one it was reasonably solid

Was it a HO optioned 351? Must still be pretty rare though...
Only 336 Mach 1 R Codes, so yeah it is rare.

Yes, they came with solid lifters. I used to own a 72 R Code. Listening to the rattle of the lifters was one way to ratify that the motor was indeed an HO and not a transplant Q Code motor. Only came with the 4 speed as well. Wish the car was closer.

I wish it was closer as well. The picture of the rev limiter just sitting in the trunk is killing me!

seen this ad. anyone know that history of the car?

http://longisland.craigslist.org/cto/4109727392.html
Yeah, I just joined the forum to see what these cars are all about. I got this car as a gift in 1992 when I was 18. Nobody knew how rare of a car it was at the time, just knew it was cool and fast. Did some amature patch work on the rear quarters and a paint job. The decal kit was in the trunk (incomplete) as seen in the pics. The brakes were done, the motor rebuilt, new clutch. It was built by me for my father, he rearely drove it because it was to noisy or to hot, he was used to his f-150. It has been sitting around my shop collecting dust. I have camaro project that I want to finish, so I posted an ad on craigslist. The first guy to look at it brought allot of things to my attention, soo I started doing my homework only to find out that it is a very rare car. It kills me to get rid of it but my heart lies with my Camaro. I would like to get as much as I could for the car. I am not looking to rip anyone off. I am very honest in my add. If anyone one has any questions please feel free to ask. Later Guys

Good Luck with the sale! Hope someone that appreciates what it is can take it back to it's former glory. Good luck with that other car Junior.

1970 63B, M-code, FMX plus other neat options.
W/ a CJ air cleaner & power windows I question it's an R code. I've read that no 'R' came w/ power windows.
