    1973 Convertible

    As some of you may recall, my '73 Grandé is currently at a "Restoration" shop for some minor body work and paint.

    I went to "visit" it today and noticed a BEAUTIFUL red (white top) 1973 Convertible. This car is CLEAN - - has a white/black interior, 351 4V (original H code), and C6. Right off, I noticed the owner had gone to an Aluminum intake, aftermarket carburetor and had Motorsport valve covers.

    I inquired as to the car's status and was told it was for sale with an asking price of $14,000. I do not need another car but this one is just about perfect. If anyone is interested, let me know and I will pass on the particulars.

      We already have a 71 mach 1 and a 72 Coupe...a 73 Vert would really round the collection off! LOL, It's a little too much and too far for me though!

      Any photos? Big Grin

          How many mustangs do you have ? If you know the answer to this question, you do not have enough.

            If it were a bit cheaper, I might think about it, but I really don't care for convertibles. Tongue

            Actually, it make me think that I got a pretty good deal when I got mine for 5K. We'll see.

              You are correct, Don - - I only have three Mustangs; guess I need to have another talk with the First Lady!

              ...and Doc, when I saw that car my thoughts IMMEDIATELY went to you and your "dislike" for convertiblesSmile.

              The car really is nice. It is my understanding that it is was "restored" a couple of years ago and has been on the show circuit. At any rate, I plan on posting up pictures on Monday.
