Looking for nice 71-73 Convertible
#1
Hello All -

I am a long time Mustang enthusiast from Atlanta, Ga. I'm looking for a nice, solid, no rust convertible from the 71-73 Body style. Prefer 351 4V car and Pewter Silver color.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend,
Dave

You can look for them on ebay, audabuy.com and hemmings.com

Took me about 6 months before I found mine on ebay.

Good luck.

I got mine off craigslist. It's a '73 Q-code convertible minus engine/trans with the front suspension work redone, new q-code harness ran, heater rebuilt, convertible motor rebuilt and all interior pieces but door panels. The only rust I could find is in the corner of the passenger door, the driver's rear floorboard, a couple of pin holes in the left rear quarter, and a pea size rust hole in the left rear frame rail. He wanted $3,500 but I needed to get him down to $2,500.

To get the job done, I ended up giving him back the NASA hood since he wants to restore a '71-'73 Mach I and those original hoods are getting hard to find. On its own, he couldn't drop his price that low so I offered to give him back the new rear springs and a 9" that he was throwing in. Anyway, there are a couple of runners on craigslist in my area for reasonable money. I just couldn't afford the 4 to 6k they cost to get in them. Also, I can't imagine the amount of rust work they would have had.

Here you go and practically in your backyard.

BTW..This stang has been on ebay a few times. So pricing might be to your advantage.

Yes, saw that car on ebay twice already, this is third time in 2 months or so. I had bid on this '72 Conv. but seller didnt respond to any of my questions. Looks decent but engine compartment a bit rough. Don't know prior rust history as their isn't any undercarriage shots.

Based on the pictures, what do you guys think this car is worth?Understand it's hard to tell based on just photos. I'll try this seller again to see if I can get the Codes, Mechanical and prior rust history. Anything else should find out ??

I'm hoping to eventually find a bit better car and wanted the M Code 3514V w Ram Air. I'm looking at all the sites daily so hopefully right car will be out there just a matter of timing.

Thanks again for all the great advice. Much appreciated.

If you're up for Red and a 302, before I bought mine I was very interested in this one and it's been on Hemmings for 6 months. Prior price was $18,950 so I'm sure $17,350 is still negotiable.
