The owner says they know what its worth but dont have there facts remotely close. They list it as a 72 Mach and then say all Sprints came with hubcaps and only made 800 fastbacks.Rolleyes

Some of the facts are "spot on" and it appears this Spouse has taken the verbiage from some document. I agree that the number cited for fastbacks produced is incorrect but I don't think she is trying to intentionally misrepresent this Mustang.

I, too, think they are cool cars and do not believe the price is over the top for the right buyer.

Do the RIGHT thing.

I'm contacting this website to tell them to get their "facts" right.
This drives me crazy.

Hell- they even have a picture of MY SPRINT conv in the description on this site. Rolleyes

As for the price - REALLY?????????
This is a tow away car and is worth $1K or so unless about $9K of restoration parts go with it.

The other site she quotes "Visit Daniel Russell's 1972 Sprint Registry for more info" has not been updated in a decade.

See http://www.1972mustangsprint.com for ACTUAL REAL information except for that Superstang crap that I did not write.

I emailed the seller this note"
First let me say sorry to hear about your husband. While a car like this would be worth up to $20K fully restored, a project car which this is as described and from looking at the pictures is worth $1K with a 351 2V auto and MAYBE $3K if it's a 351 4v four speed. I'm sorry but that is the truth. I'm not trying to lowball you on the price - I'm just telling you that is all you can expect to sell it for in todays market. By the way, Ford actually made 3,086 Sprint fastbacks. Technically - this car is not a Mach1 either.


Many people quote the paragraph from the Mustang Source website and others when they are selling a sprint but the information is incorrect and out of date.
I have sent the corrected information to these websites.

Mustang celebrated the 1972 Olympics with the Mustang Sprint. Sprints were white with blue rocker panel paint, hood stripes, and seat inserts and a USA shield on the rear quarter panel. Many of the cars came with the standard "dog dish" hubcaps, but Magnum 500 wheels were an option. Ford made 3,086 Sprint fastbacks, 6,247 coupes and only 50 convertibles for the Washington, D.C. Cherry Blossom parade. All 1972 Mustang Sprints were produced in the Dearborn, Michigan plant. Most of the Mustang Sprints were built with the 2-barrel 302 V8 engines. Others were built with 351 2V and 4V Clevelands, and over 400 came with a 6-cylinder engine. Ford also offered Sprint models of their smaller Mavericks and Pintos.

Ya..I agree....Maybe 1500 if its not super rusty...I sure do like sprints thou...I hate how everyone tries to charge too much for them...Cause i always wanted one...But everyone treats them like they worth alot more than regular fastbacks.

Yes - that Vanguard one isn't 100% correct but it is pretty close. I wonder how much they are asking. Since it's a 351CJ I could see $20K at least but since it's a dealer I'm thinking more like $25K. Does anyone know?

No surprise I was low on my guess at the price but they are going to be waiting a really long time to sell it for $29K.

Maybe worth 2-3k if it's solid and all there.

The price is listed under all the pictures at $28,900. Looks like a real clean Sprint.
