Nice... REAL nice. That's a car to be proud of!

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

Thanks, I've owned it since 1974, but I was actually at the dealership with my girlfriend when she bought it new in 1973, so I know it's entire history. We saw it before the dealer even unloaded it from the transport truck!

Absolutely beautiful. And extremely cool - and rare - that you share its entire history. Thanks for sharing.

Sweet car, Mike. Interesting that you've hung on to the 250 this long - many would have swapped it for a V8 - I like you''re style.

Mike, Every time I see a pic of your car I love the color and how it looks more and more. I think I like the 71-73 convertible look better than my 65...and that's saying something cause a reeeally like my 65. Anyway, great looking car!
Question: How did you get the white paint to look so deep? What brand?

Hi Mike,
I really like that white paintjob on your car. That's something you don't see often. Really nice!
The coolest thing is that you've known it since it came from the factory unlike most of us who buy a car used and all to often of unknown background.
This one is truly YOURS!thumb

Thanks for all the nice comments. It's funny, even after owning convertible for over 36 years I still get a thrill just looking at it. My wife is jealous of it because my old girlfriend use to own it; my response is that she owned it for less than a year and I've owned it for almost four decades! I think my wife really likes it though!

73VertProject, I've been tempted over the years to go with a 302 or 351 but have hung in there with the 6 cyl. It is easy to work on, but vamach1 is giving me his old 72 351C engine, so I have incentive to do the swap! If I get into the rebuild and swap, I'm sure I will be posting plenty of questions about what all is required to do the conversion.

Very nice car! It is definitely rare with the 250 CID engine. I am still looking for a mustang myself ( convertible has my preference ) and I was wondering how a 6 cylinder drives? Or would you recommend an 8 cylinder car if searching for a new car?

Best regards,

Jeroen

Nice!!!! I have the 302 in mine, there was a swap from the original 2 bbl to a Holley 4 bbl, not a fan of Holley though, I was fortunate enough to be given all the original parts that have been swapped off the car. From the intake/carb, to the original radio, wheels, tires, and hub caps. I've been doing research on the history of my vert, got my Marti report as you can never have enough docs to support the history. Nice that you know the car from day 1.

Thanks, The 6 cylinder cruises along just fine at interstate speeds and accelerates fine up to speed but is not a race car. If I have the need for speed I take my 2004 Mach 1 out for a ride. It is zero to 60 in 5.2 seonds.  The 6 cylinder is simple and easy to work on with plenty of space in the engine compartment. I decided against swapping out for a V8.
