1973 Mustang Sportsroof
73 Sportsroof, found on kijiji late 2018. Car was last on the road in 1978, sprayed with Ziebart Enviroguard several times and then stored in a barn for over 30 years. During the stay in the barn, the car developed many dings and dents and the interior was destroyed by rodents (aside from rear seat and headliner). Car was removed from the barn and underwent some restoration attempt but not enough to get it roadworthy. I was luck enough to find it as the owner didn't have any interest. A true'ish Canadian barn find. All original glass, including windshield. 

Marti report shows it was ordered and sold in Cambridge, Ontario. Just minutes away from where it spent it's life. One of 97 with this paint and trim codes. The original blown 351-2V engine was removed (probably the reason for storage) but was included in the deal. Car has power steering, power front disc brakes and rear defrost. A conventional 2.75:1 9" rear end finished the car (plan is to upgrade to a 3.23 or 3.50 with trac-lok). 

I am currently 2 months into a 5 month restoration of the car, which includes all body work, paint, full interior restoration and installation of the rebuilt 460 with 4 speed conversion. Must have car ready for June 1st 2019.

So it is a sportsroof not a Mach 1. I see the protection package, does it still have the locking spare tire? I guess PO added the rear trim between tail lights would not have been there unless it had Decor Group I don't think.
Great find and hopefully the Ziebart did it's job.


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