How rare is this considered
#1
runninpony 
Ok i own a 71 mustang Grandé now ive seen the numbers for production and my car seems to be a lot lower number produced. How rare do people consider a Grandé? the only car with lower production numbers is a boss 351 and a convertible. Im interested to hear everyones thoughts on this and heres why. If its more rare than a mach 1 (a crap load less produced) than i might restore it all original since i have the numbers matching stuff for it BUT if its not that rare than ill just go my own way (keep in mind i have many cars so a mod car how i like it can be done with something else)

thanks for any thoughts

Its really a hard call. I see what you are sayin but for whatever reason right now the market is not there for our cars but its coming around slowly. I know this is not much help, but for me I am building mine the way I want it.

+1...we're still considered the black sheep of the Mustang community because a lot of people haven't come around to the big bodies yet. I agree with Roy, I'm going to build mine the way I want it. If I had a Boss then I would probably change my tune, but my Sportsroof isn't rare at all!

That's the spirit...not only that, if you had a 1 of 1 car then it might be different, but the only way to tell would be to get a Marti report. And 1 of 1 cars are very rare indeed.

i think low production numbers is not allways a good thing if its not popular in the first place....fast backs allways got more attention than grands...and i think it plays into the whole..Grandé was a lux car version..and the sportsroof was the renagade looking car...what kids remmeber the most..all that flash and fins and stripes...Grandé were usualy plain a bit....plus now days production numbers are broken down..out of the sportsroof mach 1's...only 6,568 come with the 351 4v and c6 trans...and out of the red ones..only 4 had powerwindows..lol....i think alot more orders driven the production of the sportsroof over the Grandé....i would run the numbers..and if it turns out too be under 300 made like it i would restore it possibly...but if high numbers..i would do what ever you felt happy with.

you know we almost got a cheap Grandé for parts..was going to take the glass and everything..till we started to notice..the glass in a Grandé won't work in a sportsroof..lol..weird..we measured itfront glass and side windows...and it was a inch taller lol...and if you notice the sports roof has sharp corners on the top of the glass..were the Grandé has rounded corners...just thought it was odd that they made the Grandé roof taller..maybe for the lux part..lol
