After much changes of direction my 72 convertible is finally done. I repainted a close to original ivy green with the close to argent accents. It now has a Smedding 427 stroker with a tremec 5 speed and strange 9 inch true trac. It runs strong and sounds great. I have only had it since 1984 so not to bad. Haha My mom was the second owner. She traded in a 1965 GT convertible with every option but the HiPo 289 for it. Augh! But I guess it worked out as I have a great car now.

Sorry about the lack of pictures, I am having a super hard time getting photos off my phone onto the computer. As soon as I can figure it out, I will post more

Bought it in 1986. Base model convertible with a 302 3spd.
That looks so sharp. I really like how the argent graphics balance with the black top, air dam and wing.
