Due to very bad weather condition, I decide to report my trip.
The price of the car dropped from 10640 to 9500 us$.

I think the Mexican Sprints are very cool looking cars. If you get t I hope you'll put the big Mach 1 on the rear quarter panels.

Manu,


Here is a Spanish website that explains more about this car. I know it has been a while but I hope you were able to get the car...

I posted this in another similar thread also...

I recently uncovered more info including this Mexican press article introducing the 73 1/2 Mexican Sprints:

I translated in English:

Mexico produces new model
Mach One
This new model Mustang Mach I, the "Sprint” is an exclusive model, because the same will only be produced by Ford of Mexico 600 units for the whole country. The "Sprint” a 1973 model and a half , emphasizes the essential features of Mustang Mach 1 ; on the outside with bold color combinations in baked acrylic paint to help highlight the white and scarlet robes inside. This new model further enhances the sporty flavor of Mach 1 retaining the same mechanical characteristics of this year. In the picture below you can see the dash and console, which was followed using the same colors, except in the scarlet, where it is contrasted with black. The "Sprint” is in white background, with the option of four different combinations of colors: scarlet, blue, green walnut and olive.

Original text in Spanish:

Este nuevo modelo de Mustang Mach I, el "Sprint" es un modelo exclusivo, ya que del mismo sólo serán producidos por la Ford de México 600 unidades para todo el país. El "Sprint", un modelo del 1973 y medio, acentúa las características esenciales del Mustang Mach 1; en su exterior con audaces combinaciones de colores en pintura acrílica horneada que ayudan a resaltar las vestiduras blancas y escarlata de su interior. Este nuevo modelo aumenta más aún el sabor deportivo del Mach 1 conservando las mismas características mecánicas de este año.

El "Sprint" es en fondo blanco, con opción a cuatro diferentes combinaciones de colores: escarlata, azul, nogal y verde aceituna.

Car has a new owner in France. He has it posted under the Mexican Mustang Facebook group.

Manu64 thinks he might live close to him in France.. I hope he can get the owner to join us.
