1973 Convertible 302 with ram air
#1
Just noticed this car on ebay.

Was RAM AIR an option with the 302 engine? I thought it was only an option on a 351 2V in 1973...

TuTone hood looks wrong. The rest looks quite nice.

Not sure about the ram air on a 302 but it does have the leather wrapped steering wheel.

'73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

That hood paint job is way way off that sucks. No magnums in 73 unless special order and 6 digit DSO. There were no ram air 302 must have been added.
The leather wheel is rare I have one and bought the Marti Mustang by the numbers book to see how rare. He does not even list it as an option along with several other options. A 351 would not bring $19,500 much less a 302 with many incorrect things.


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

JD79, ram air was not an option on any 71-73 302 Mustang. In 1973 production installed ram air was only available on the 351c 2bl. In 73 there was a Tutone hood option which would include a non functional Mach1 style hood with black or argent accent paint and the twist style hood locks. Don't remember the cost, but was a really inexpensive option. David can verify the cost as he has that option on his time capsule 73 Mach1 "Q" code. The stripe around the tutone is defiantly not right and the "Ram Air" only decal would of been used exclusively on the Boss 351. Overall looks to be a pretty nice car. At least they didn't call it a Mach1 convertible! Big Grin

Thanks steve! So another seller on ebay that doesn't exactly know what he is selling....
My car came with a TuTone hood ( without Ram Air ), although it is completely red now. ( Hopefully original again next year).

It looks like it is a sticker or a really bad paint job on this yellow car. It amazes me how many cars have the wrong pattern on the hood. I guess it is really difficult to get it right. I have to find a way to figure out what the exact dimensions are when my car get's a new paint job.

You have a better chance now of getting the correct tutone paint dimensions than a few years ago. We had a forum member who was an original owner of a J code Mach1. He provided his car to Graphix Express so they could measure the dimensions on his hood black out and pin stripe so they could manufacture a stencil that was actually correct. David (Carolina_Mountain_Mustang) is an original owner of a 73 Mach1. He has graciously provided a pencil impression of the center and pin stripe paint on his tutone hood for others to use as a template. I'm sure if asked he would be glad to help you. I've have also heard that Don (Ohio Mustang Supply) has the correct dimensions. So with all the "Bad" hood treatments we have seen, I would sure check with one of them.
The illustration's show the hood from the 73 Mustang sales brochure and the Graphix Express site. http://www.graphic-express.com/ford-moto...l-kit.html
