Original owner - 22k miles? Why did it require paint to be stripped off? And with 22k miles, paint and interior should look new.

Lots of claims with no documentation or even extra pics.

It will have to have a six digit DSO code on the door sticker or Marti. Marti cannot tell the color on special order for paint cars. The front bumper would have been Argent. The build sheet is the only way to confirm what it was and if that is missing just another car.

Is new paint considered 'minor tlc'?

Hi to all,

Say, i'm somewhat confused about the car sporting power locks and power seats.Huh

OK - this car is supposed to be a special edition Mustang, but were these power options available at all for any '73 Convertibles?Chin

Also, what happened to the original burgandy colored top?

I may be wrong, but i didn't think so. I may need educating here.Chin

Greg,
The one thing in the CJ article they sort of miss stated is the fact that Marti does not have the Special Order data. I have a Special order paint 73 Mustang Convertible that is black. When I ordered the Marti he got back to me and told me that the Special Order cars data was held by each DSO and he never got that data and it was destroyed. Since all Special Order cars have the 6 digit DSO you just do not know what the order was for. I did find the build sheet on my car but in very bad shape. When I sent a scan to Marti he did come back and confirm that the car came with an Argent Front bumper. Something about wheels and something about hood. The only numbers he has for the Special Order cars is the total which I think was 144 for all models in 73 with the CW white interior option. There were 698 total for all special order items. So they are pretty common overall. Now if the Playboy Pink was like a package that was an option it would show on the Marti but it was not an option so Marti will show very little. The build sheet would be the Gold on this car. If no build sheet just words.

I would approach this one with extreme caution as seller already has negative rating. Have no ideal how proud seller is of this vehicle or how much reserve he has set. Seems to be in poor shape for a 22K mile car, hard to tell from the one picture. Power seats and locks were not RPO options for the Mustang. Would sure need a lot of documentation on this one including a DSO number. And as David can tell you that will indicate a special order of some type but finding out what that special order was would be next to impossible. When Ford upgraded their computer systems over the years the paper trail of info we treasure so much were casualties of that progress. Dealers were sent DSO info for cars in their Districts from Ford. But as computers and systems were upgraded at the Dealer level, paper and Micro-Fiche were pitched in the name of progress!
Agree with will e, didn't know a complete paint job for a car sitting in bare metal was considered a little "TLC"!
