It does look nice. Are you any closer to finding one that you like to buy?

I am inclined to keep and restore the 1971 M code Mach 1 that I purchased a while back. Will send it to a Mustang shop in FL that will do the sheet metal work at a decent price. Will like to have a 1971 -73 convertible too...

Is it just me or is the windshield lower on the right than on the left?

It looks that way, yes. I guessed it was an optical illusion because of the roof line of the car in the background but even if you block that from sight, the windshield still looks askew.
Weird.

That is weird, I thought it might just be the slope of the driveway and the way the car was sitting, but when I went back and looked the rest of the car looks good.

The hood is sitting just a bit higher on the right hand side and the hood trim has been yanked up a bit in that corner too. Gives that illusion, and I've seen it on solid cars too - though I wouldn't be surprised if the left fender is sitting low.

Mark that too - this car has the elusive cowl-end hood trim. She's an early one, and worth a second look because of it. VIN needs to be verified though, as the sportlamp grill proves that it hasn't escaped tinkering over time.

The fool didn't photograph the car from the sides either, opening up speculation to door panel gaps and sagging. Maybe.
