They are on the same aisle as the hen's teeth. Sorry, I couldn't resist. I have never seen or heard of one. A post on the Concours Mustang forum MIGHT get a response. I wish you luck with your search. Chuck

I read that there are 5 on another post. If so 25% more odds of finding one.

That thing is so rare that there isn't a photo or an article on one of them in all of Google. Who know if one even exists anymore. It would be an incredible find if you find one.
I know of one but it’s still in the care of the original owners family and this I’d NFS.

It would be great if you could document the one you know of. There is no information out there at all on an R-Code Grande. Maybe the owners will let you take some photos to post. It would be great to see one. I bet that few people have ever heard of an R-Code Grande and ever fewer have ever seen one.

Unfortunately the guy was very close mouthed about the car but did acknowledge its existence and told me it’s pristine original. He wouldn’t even show me the Marti.

While we're talking about rare Grande's. What about 71 Q, J and C and maybe L code Grandes. I saw a 429 4sp. Green and tan needing a restore about 11 years ago. Never seen a 71 Q code or L code of any year.

I’ve seen a Q code Grande. I have the Marti on it. I own one of 13 71 C code C6 Grandes. One was an SCJ so mine is one of 12.

I saw a brown/ginger C code Grande when I was in El Pase back in the 90s. Any chance that was your car?
No but I know that car. It is identical to mine but it has a white top where mine is brown.
I’ve got the Marti on that one. It was sold new in El Paso. That one belongs to a guy named Roman Ortiz. Where did you see it?

I've seen a 72 and 73 Q code, but not a 71. Not sure what year you were referencing. Is your C code one of those with loads of options? What about J codes?

If there were any 1971 Q codes they were late in the year production. Most were M code in 71. My C code is not loaded. I’ll post Marti.
Here is the Marti on the El Paso car as well as mine and a blue one in California. This is 25% of the C code Grandes made. Mine is the one sold new in Austin TX.
