Any 72 sprint convertibles out there?
#1
I maintain the registry for these rare Mustangs. Ford only made fifty 1972 Olympic sprint Mustangs. They were used in the DC Cherry Blossom festival parade and sold only at DC area Ford dealers. We have located most of them but about 13 are missing. See http://www.1972mustangsprint.com for the entire history of these special Mustangs.

I appreciate your dedication to the historical significance of the '72 Olympic model, and will keep an eye out for their appearance in this forum. I especially like your use of the phrase "71-73 Superstang years", in light of the fact that most media use it to refer to late model Mustangs. Our "red-headed stepchildren", as some refer to us, simply refers to the rather unique '71 - '73 Mustangs. Thanks for stopping by and letting us know about the Olympic.

Here's a little more history on the convertibles and the princesses that rode in the Mustangs.

Note sure about the junkyard wars sprint - it was likely a coupe or fastback.

I recall an individual stationed at Clark AB, Republic of the Philippines having one of those in the early '80s. I do not know whether or not he left it over there (as was sometime the custom) or brought it back to the States.

Often tmes, Gis would sell the "pony cars" to wealthy Filipinos when they departed to come back home - - I shipped mine back twiceSmile.

There were a lot of mustangs, firebirds and camaros left over there!
