Several.
I have a secret desire/ambition (don't tell my wife) to get a 71 or 72 convertible and was wondering how many convertibles there are on here.

So, if you have a 71-73 convertible make a post to this thread listing the year, engine and any other options you'd like to share and let's see how many we can get listed.

Example:

71 M-code, ram air, Lime with white top.

73 351 4V 4-speed convert
Mine is a 73 convertible that was ordered with a Q code, 4 speed toploader, 3.50 trac-lock, well optioned (has pretty much everything I would have ordered) and soon to be returned to the original med. blue aqua with hood black-out and side stripes (It was repainted Acapulco Blue a long time ago and even I kinda wish Ford had stuck with Grabber Blue until the end of 73 but I'll give the Aqua a try for now.)

Drove it to the shop [ with only rear brakes ] and parked it in the corner.

Had plans for it but it is still sitting the corner. At least it's safe and dry inside and it looks nice sitting there.
