Texas car that was brought to Illinois in 1991.  Major restoration done in 1992-6.  Engine rebuilt from original 2v to 4v.  I bought it from the guy who restored it, his family didn't want it, and I wanted a car already done but only had minor things to do to it.  I didn't think I would be a fan of the 3/4 vinyl, but I had never seen one before, but I'm a big fan now.  

Edited 11/2017 to add: finally got my full Marti and its a 1 of 1!

My 72 mach,1 has the 3/4 vinyl top too and I've become very much a fan. Nice car the black top looks great with the red.

I am also restoring a 1973 Mustang fastback that has a 3/4 vinyl top option. I have not been able to find a replacement top that offers the correct seam spacing(about 37 inches). The seam spacing is important due to the fact that the landau molding that goes across the roof at the rear edge of the vinyl has two mating humps in it to accomodate the 2-3mm height of the top seams.
I have recently purchased an ACME vinyl top product, but learned the seam spacing is at 40 inches and won't fit this car.
Does anyone have any advice on this topic other than a custom-made vinyl top(which may be my only option)?
Thank you!

The 73 vinyl roof was pretty common with 8,050 of both fastback and Mach 1. The rare year is 71 with only 150 Fastbacks and Mach 1. Marti did not break them out as one or the other all in one group.
I think it makes the car look much better breaks up the car color. I have one also.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
