Ok, so I'm a Mustang fan at heart but can still appreciate the "Country Club Cousin" Cougar. I'd say it still counts as a cool 73 vert especially since you also have the Mustang to go with it... pics?

In college I had the 73 mustang convert, my friend had a 73 cougar convert. It was fun cruising around with the two cars. Except he had the 4v 351 and I just had the 2v so he pretty much out ran me every time.

I do have some pictures but the car is in rough shape, I don't think anybody wants to look at my junk,lol.

On a good note, it is an all original Q code car with power everything, actually it has all options nobody scimped on this car when they ordered it. It runs and drives, just needs body work and interior work.

73 Q code 4 Speed Convertible
New to this Forum, I'm active in some other Forum, and happen to be sent this Link.

One of the keeps of years of restoring was our 73 Q Code, 4 Speed, Convertible.

These cars a finally getting the recognition they deserve, and now will gain in value, popularity.

Our Q Code is a very close copy of the Green convertible that was on E Bay.

I am almost finished building my 71 Mustang convertible.

It is black, black canvas top, black and silver deluxe interior. I found a 429 scj and a c6 for it, mass flo efi, 9" with detroit tru trac, variable rate power steering, ram air, 18's and 20's, a/c, seat heaters, power tinted windows, dropped front control arms. Really ready to drive it.

Sorry, all I have are build pics.
