73 Convertible - 351CJ special order paint
#1
Saw this on the Classic Mustang page on Facebook - in Louisiana. Very nicely optioned and doesn't look rusty. Original purple color peeking out behind the door tag.

Went to look and it is already gone. Will all those options and Special Paint can see why.
They cannot say the only purple one since Marti has no records of color used or how many of any color. He can only say that 144 convertibles with CW interiors had special paint.

So I pulled the trigger and bought this one too! The original color is more like a metallic Fuchsia. I bought some 1973 Ford/Lincoln color paint swatch sheets and think I found the color. It will be a really cool car if I ever get the time to restore it! Nice list of factory options.

Lol midlife! That's it for me for a while.  I'm not buying anything else until I sell something first!

From what I know about the Special Paint cars is that it had to be a color that Ford offered on another model like Lincoln or T-bird. I am sure if you had a company with there own color they would go with it. But when I order one in 73 I was told I could get any color Ford offered on any car line the had. Remember the front bumper and the rear bumper fillers will be Argent. Hope the saved you the build sheet that tells that.

Thanks David. Good advice. The build sheets for both cars, unfortunately, are long gone, along with the metal that was underneath themYou are correct about the argent front bumper and bumper fillers. My black 73 Q code special paint car still has those parts covered in original argent paint. Also, I don't think any special paint cars came with dual sport mirrors. Only the chrome driver's side mirror.

I will be honest. My daughter got so excited when she saw that pic. Her dream car is a 71-73 vert in pink or purple. Keep in mind she will be 7 in Jan but spends lots of time with dad in the garage turning wrenches, or at least trying.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.
