1973 Mustang Coupe to Convertible Conversion
I have a rusty 72 vert H code that was loaded with options including P.W., P.S, P.D.B., Air, Tilt, Console, Gages, etc, etc.. I was going to cut all the pieces out that could be swapped to a coupe like you have shown. You have given me a great map to go by. I was considering making a trailer out of the rear of the vert and probably will still do so but do not need the rear seat and top inner reinforcements to do that.
This could happen more often to save work on rusty verts.
You should have invested in the rotisserie first, lol. I found one local that he did not need any more and it has large 12" diameter tires that make it easy to roll out for blasting. Anyone doing a major build like you needs the rotisserie for sure saves so much time and makes it easier.
Great thread and hope to see a finished car soon.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
Wow that's awesome Work you are doing therethumbCool Regards Lars DK73Coolphotosgoodpost

So I'm a proud owner of one Mach 1 73! Regards Lars DK73whistling
Very nice work! I love the thread as I have a 70 vert. that I have to make a decision on soon. It isn't as rusty as yours but still pretty rusty. I do have a rust free 70 coupe but don't know if it is worth it to go that way or do the vert. Biggest problem with the vert. is torque boxes and rear frame rails are pretty rusty. Opinions from someone who has done this would help.

If you ain't afraid (even a little) then you ain't going fast enough!
Any updates or finished product pics?
WOW, VERY IMPRESSIVE! I am wondering if you're gonna be using the VIN/Dashpad from the VERT as well or use the COUPE'S VIN/Dashpad?
