72 sprint conv up for sale soon - 2F03F184285
#1
                The owner is looking to sell. I told them w/o seeing it in person it is worth maybe low teens. It has some issues (Wheels, top iffy and non-stock paint) but IF the body is sound and the interior is good and the engine checks out they can ask whatever price they want but I doubt they will get much more than my estimate. What do you all think?

I don't know. I have seen some crazy prices on ebay and auction sites latey It will be interesting to see what they get for it.

With that paint job and no closeups of the bodyside, there is nothing to judge the condition of the car with.

One can sculpt a trailer queen out of Bondo and nobody would know it by looking at the average .JPG-compressed beauty shot - especially with a light color.

The fact that this car looks obviously neglected and ill-maintained doesn't say anything in its favor.

7500 to 8500.

with the fact it lives in Floriduh It likely has rust issues. the permeation of the salt air will work that metal inside out. With a new top and paint, any engine work?, interior? you'll top out at the value of the car instead of OVER the value.

I'll take a Florida rustbucket any day over a New York or Philly rustbucket.

Hey Guys,

Tell me, do these Sprint verts generally command more money than regular verts do as a rule? Limited production run etc, etc ..............

Kurt,

Do they lay down salt on the roads in places like New York in winter time?

One of 50. The only Sprint convertibles were produced for the '72 Cherry Blossom Festival Parade.

I want a Sprint Convertible, but why do they always come up for sale when I don't have the extra cash to spend !!!!

I might end up making a Tribute Sprint convertible one of these days.

I dont know if I missed it being a "USA" car. At the moment I see two things. Its painted kinda like a USA car and we dont know the facts. Second I see this car having more value to US and not the open market.

Huh
USA car? I know there are some with the Canadian markings but I have always known these cars as 1972 Mustang Sprints.

1972 Sprint convertibles always command a premium. Even thought they are super rare, and I would not mind owning one, I'd take any R, C or J code car (any bodystyle) over it with similar condition and price. Just me.
