I could have owned this all original (at the time) 71 J Code Grande for $11k in 1990. Too rich for my blood back in the day. It swapped hands a couple times, the guy that bought it when I walked away, “restored” an all original, in already excellent shape car… I never understood why, but, it was his car. He sold it to the current owner who brought it to a local Mustang show today. I should have spent the $11k back in the day and I would have saved myself untold $1000’s I spent on other cars over the years… ce la vie)) Just thought I would post this rare car here, for those interested…

Very cool car indeed. The dealer installed antenna location is odd as is a 429 CJ ordered with an open differential. Thanks for posting. Chuck

I love the fact that there were 23 Grandes ordered with 429 CJs!
