Hockey Stick stripes on a Grandé??
#1
.. I thought Coupes and Grandé's didn't get Hockey Stick stripes ?
    This is a 71 (the ad says).. and it sure looks like a yellow Spring Special to my limited mind..

seems a little spendy for the condition and being a 302 car, and that is some funky looking carpet.

'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.

'73 F code convertible. Bright red. Needs total restore. (IE HOT MESS)

soonerbillz, I believe if that one could talk it would have lot to say! Defiantly not a Grandé as that one has a standard interior and the Mach1 style front end appearance.
Is probably as you guessed, a 71 Spring Sprint. The Boss style Hockey Stick stripes were standard only on the Boss 351 and were  only available as an option on the 71 Mach1. The 71 Spring Sprint was a coupe only release and was the only other way to get the Boss style stripes on anything other than the Boss or a Mach1.

I have limited info the 71 Spring Sprints. Since the racing mirrors and urethane front bumper were borrowed from the Mach1, the same colors that were available on the Mach1 should also have been available on the Sprint. Red was probably used a lot in advertisements since it was such attention getting color. (Ask any of your Police buddies)!   whistling

Am I the only one who noticed the typo in the Ford Spring Edition ad?  They used an apostrophe with 'Dealers,' (TWICE!!) Which is possessive... not plural... and a common mistake still made these days - cracked me up.

Seems that you are still the only one...

But it is nice to see that there are some other nit-pickers out there than me - I am the same here in German language and it's part of my job Wink

Interesting they printed it twice the way it was... But there are enough similar faults still out there in ads today! We in German language like to use "false apostrophes", too Big Grin 

But back to topic:

From the pictures an the infos of a previous thread here I think it's a Spring Special with missing vinyl roof like the picture in the ad in a bit rough shape. But I like that overall appearance of a Coupe like that!

It would be interesting to see the breakdown on the numbers for Spring Special cars and which colors were made...

Did Ford offer something similar in 1973? I knew someone who had a similar looking 73 351C coupe.... The picture is from 1998 and I believe his was an unrestored daily driver.
