Not a sportsroof, but the color and interior are what you are looking for I think.

Thank you. I did find this site, but I was hoping to get a good picture of a stock car. It appears most of us changed the colors of the car.

I wanted to create a restoration album but I cannot find a picture of the car in its original configuration. You would think since we had the car since it was new that it would be easy to find, but noooooo.

Ok - I understand what you are looking for now. I will keep my eyes open for a photo like that.

I'm going to bump this as I am still looking for something. My dad turns 70 in March and I want to have a photo or painting created of him standing next to "his stang" and me next to "my stang". Sorta in a V shape with each of us (at the correct age), so him at age 36 and me at 40-41. An orginal looking car even in the wrong color would be ok as the person doing it for me (the next person I need to find) could change the color. I just thought it would be easier to have it in the original color. A BW would even be ok.

Thank you guys for helping me out!

This pic is a capture from a movie but the car is probably identical to how your dad's car looked from the factory.

The pic is obviously an action shot as the suspension is loaded hard for a non-performance Mustang.

Thanks Ray. It is very close. Funny that it is missing the black panel and has a stripe on the back.

That was correct. The stripe either preceeded the chrome M_U_S_T_A_N_G letters or followed them. I can't remember.

EDIT: hmmm?

From a previous post from Kit Sullivan.
"71 fastbacks ( non Mach 1s) came with a full width stripe with "MUSTANG" letters cut out in the stripe in approximately the same location as the stick-on letters on 71 coupes, converts and Grandes." He followed up with a disclaimer, aka "I think". Smile

here's a link to the thread: http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-letters-or-script

I believe the 1971 Facts Book in our WIKI (maybe Smile ) explains this better.

Not sure, my 71 Sportsroof (nonMach) had the individual chrome letters and no stripes, green metallic, ginger standard interior. I have side pictures (old Polaroid). If I can dig it up, I'll copy it and post. Dog dish hubcaps and all. I was the second owner and it was as original. The VIN can be found by searching the site for looking for an old friend.

I should be home this weekend and I'll look for the pictures.

EDIT - it also did have the black panel on the back - kind of camera case dimple finish with chrome/stainless trim top and bottom.
