1971-73 Convertibles-Opinions Wanted
#11
Would you know the rarity of my 71 Convertible?

M code 351 4V
Red with Red deluxe interior
White Power Top w/Glass Backlite
C-6 Select Shift Cruise-O-Matic
3.25 Traction-Lok Differential
F60X15 Wide Oval Belted Raised White Letter Tires
Power Steering
Power Front Disc Brakes
Bumper Guards
Ram Air Option
Hood Locks
Air Conditioner - Selectaire
AM/8-Track Stereo Radio
Full Console
Décor/Accent Group
Electric Seat Releases
Appearance Protection Group
Heavy Duty Battery
Magnum 500 Chrome Wheels
Competition Suspension
Tachometer / Guages

I do not know if I should keep it or sell it.

We have a 73 vert that needs less work to be a really nice but it is just an 351 2V full optioned, power window car, with factory alum wheels. It has a non fuctional ram air hood.

The 71 has the typical 71 - 73 rust issues but it is better than most I have seen and the cowls are solid.

Hmmmm........

Thanks!

Paul

With that in mind, the '71 Convertibles were the least number made for the period with 6,121 Units. Of those, only one (1) was a "Q" code with 4-speed transmission. There were four (4) Q Codes built with the C6.

In '72, there were 6,401 Convertibles built. Of those, thirteen (13) were "R" codes with the 4-speed. Interestingly, there were eighty-two (82) "H" codes with the 3-speed transmission.

In '73, there were 11,853 Convertibles built. Two (2) of those were "H" codes with the 4-speed transmission. There were 293 "Q" codes with the 4-speed and 675 "Q" codes with the C6.

I have had many older cars over the years. when i went to see my 73 convertible. it was the drive and handling that made my mind up. ive drove later newer cars than my 73 and to me they dont drive any better.
just for the record, in the UK you dont see that many 71 - 73 convertibles for sale.
