3/4 vinyl top on sportroof.
#1
When I bought my car over 30 years ago I thought the 3/4 vinyl top was an unusual option and after many years of going to car shows and cruise night's I still think this is a pretty rare option especially on a MACH1. If you have this option on your car or know of a car with it sound off. I'd like to know about your car and its options.

I saw one on here a few weeks ago but I can remember if it was an ad or a member...maybe someone else recalls it? There were even a few comments about the vinyl top.

Hello,
I have one with 3/4 vinyl top, $52.35. I ordered the car with every option that could come on a Mach 1 except the engine block heater I think. I has 27 factory installed options and 7 that are dealer items for a total of 34 options.
I have posted the order form and dealer invoice before but have again for you to see the costs of everything. I had originally ordered a non Mustang color which I think was $125.00 but they could not match the rubber bumper and I did not want the chrome one so I changed to stock color. The car has sat in the barn and not washed or cleaned in 32 years. I hope to clean it up this year. A little over 12,000 miles on it.

Dave,
I can't wait to visit and see this beauty! It kills me every time I see the you write "The car has sat in the barn and not washed or cleaned in 32 years". You can't move that pony into the her new home unless she's dressed for the occasion! I'm bringing the Mequires soap and wax!

My first Mustang was a Red 73 Sportsroof that I bought back in 1978, that had the 3/4 roof option.

It had a 2v 351C, FMX transmission, Ford AM / FM Stereo, and hockey stick stripes, and had Ford Wire cover caps.

Unfortunately I had the worst luck with the car, and sold it in the early 80s.

My car had one on it when I first got it in the mid 90's. It was one of the four options the car had.

I like the 3/4 on some of our cars. The bronze color really does look good with it. Interesting I've never thought much of the MAVERICK and Mustang until I look at that pic. I can really see the Maverick profile emerging from that look.

Wow I've never see a white one. I know they were available in other colors but I've never seen a white top. Thanks for the feed back.
