72 HO for sale on Ebay
#1
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Super-Rar...33655406a4

The description says only surface rust. WTH - they think I'm blind - the car is sitting outside rusting away. A little primer and a new panel here and there does NOT make it a rust free car. Dodgy Well - if he did a bunch of work on it than show some recent pictures. Doh.

On Dec-29-10 at 19:04:13 PST, the seller (on Ebay) added the following information:

(I guess) it should be noted that this car like the 429 car he is selling on a seperate auction, has recieved a lot of work to the undercarriage.

1. entire undercarriage has been sandblasted

2. Then sprayed with PPG's DP40 epoxy primer.

3. all seams filled with flexible seam sealer

4. primed again

5. Top coated with an Acrylic enamel chasis black with hardner

Hmm I see what looks like some pin holes......and is that just the jute padding still sicking to the floor pan or is some serious work needed?

No, Vamach, I think you're reading it wrong. When he says "zero rust" I think he means all the rust holes look like zeros. Tongue

I'm always interested in trivia, so can anybody here authenticate his statement - was this a real option?

"This car was basically a detuned Boss 351, produced for approximately six months and producing only 333 cars.

Far more rare than a Boss 351"

Come on now every one knows ZERO rust just means it has all fallen out and is no longer rust but known as a holeBig Grin

72Mike,

According to "Mustang ... by the Numbers (1967 -1973)", there were 19 (nineteen) 351HO-4V Hardtops; 366 Fastbacks; and 13 Convertible for a total of 398 351HO-4V for 1972.

So Yes, the 1972 351HO is much rarer than the 1971 Boss 351 which came in with 1,806 units (all Fast Backs).

BT

Do the RIGHT thing.

I'm tired of seeing all these cars with ZERO RUST...I can't tell you how many i've looked at that say "ZERO RUST" & low & behold rust..If it has 1 pin speck of rust THAT"S NOT ZERO RUST" So I've learned that when the ad say's zero rust..Expect to see rust ! MY CAR IS ZERO RUST !!! at least every area I have repaired so farSmile & nice repair to the left frt frame rail. i'd go the $500.00 but no more than a grand & that's going by the pic's to put that car together correctly (paying a competent shop) easy $18,000...then you need the correct parts on top of it..Not a project for the faint hearted. JMO

If it was an HO convertible - that would be worth it's weight in gold. Well- perhaps more than a 71 Boss 351 anyway.
