Nice 73 Grandé sighting
#1
Yesterday (8/7/16) I attended a local mustang show in Erie, Pa organized by the Lake Erie Mustang Owner's Club (LEMOC). It was a very well run show with about 130 cars in attendance on a nice sunny day with about an hour and a half drive each way.

This 73 Grandé caught my eye so I thought I would snap a few pics to share. The current owners's expressed interest in the forum when I explained what it was so maybe we will see them online soon. The car came out of Florida and was featurned on cover of Mustang Times (with previous owner). One thing that surprised me was the mention that original vinyl top was green to match the 4P Bright Green Gold exterior and Avocado interior.

Nice car!

Vinyl roofs were available as matched sets using roof color, exterior paint code and interior trim codes.

Here is the 1972 ones: (I'll try and get the 73 soon!!!)

Nice car, never seen triple gauges below the heater controls and trans ashtray holder, must be aftermarket I'd love to find the kit to do just that.

That does look nice but would be hard to see while driving. I currently have my Tach mounted there where the clock should be on a long console and it is pretty much useless.

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.

Gauges are aftermarket, available from just about any auto parts store.

Console is the factory standard "consolette" w/ashtray that came when you didn't check the full console box on the option sheet.

Avocado interior is an acquired taste for sure....
