72 Sprint Sportsroof
#1
Hey everyone. I've been using these forums a lot lately and wanted to register so I could start posting and meeting other people with Mustangs. I bought my first Mustang restoration project 2 days ago, a 1972 Mustang Sprint Sportsroof. It is in need of a lot of work to get it back into original condition, but I look forward to the work and progress along the way. I've been wanting to restore a Mustang for a while now and I love the 71-73 Fastback body style, so when I found the Sprint for sale in my state, I gladly made the 4 hour trip to pick it up. I'm hoping to find other Sprint owners so I can get advice and tips, I've already found one about 2 hours from me and we've exchanged info so I'm ahead a little. I've included pictures of how it is now. It looks like it was about to be made into a drag car and it is in primer black. There is a 73 grill on it at the moment but the very next day after buying it, I found the correct 72 grill in the next town over from me, lucky again. I'll make sure I keep updating with pictures to hopefully help others too. I look forward to talking to all of you.

Bob Hand in CT wins a trophy every time he brings out his 72 Cleveland Sprint Sportsroof. Said he did the paint himself. Ford never sold a car off a showroom that looks as good as Bob's car. I saw it in person and still couldnt believe how beautiful it is. And he said he drove it to the show! You should be able to find pics on the internet.

I also own a Sprint Sportsroof, good luck with restore. Looks like your car has 73 fenders along with grill on it. Sprints should have the sport lamps on it like the MACH 1
