Research Question
#1
A few years back I spoke with a judge at an all mustang show. He said he worked with Kevin Marti. He told me that there were only a handful of 73 Q code coupes left registered in the US. Being that the production numbers were low (only 548 produced in 73) I guess its possible.
I have tried to research this and continue to run into a brick wall. I would like to know just how many are in a "handful".
Is there any way to research this on my own without going thru Marti?

Here is a link that may be of some help...

http://www.insearchofmustangs.org/Home.aspx

I checked this site and of the 730 1973 Mustangs registered only 1 is a Q code coupe. Good luck with your search...sounds like a very unique car.

With all due respect to Bo and ISO Mustangs, their registry numbers aren't that high for the '71-73s. Site also doesn't take VINs down properly the last I tried.

I don't know where this judge is getting his information from, unless he has access to some sort of database for presently registered VIN numbers.

Basing one's assessment upon a poor turnout of 1973 Q-code coupes at MCA meetings is not a good sample size.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

Marti's Mustangs By the Numbers states that there were 325 4-speed and 739 automagic 73 Q-code coupes.

Midlife - You have to be careful with the data. I have learned the hard way...

The numbers you are quoting are listed for hardtops =
coupes (01 body type) and Grandes (04 body type) combined.

Correct. In which I am searching specifically Grandé Coupes.

I was in hopes of finding out how many are left.

I too would like to know how many of my Grandes are still left.
1971 M-code with toploader, only made 100 according to Marti.
I registered with "insearchofmustangs" but can't view the
registry. I have a username and password but they tell me I
am unverified so can't get anywhere.

*** I was able to get in with the help of the board's mod.
There are four M-code Grandes listed with one having
a C6 and the other three don't say.

Just an idea - you might get with your local vehicle insurance agents.

They should have the contacts or access to a database that will show similar vehicles currently registered/insured for driving on the road.

You and or your agent could contact the major classic car insurers; Grundy's, Haggerty's, etc.

I am not aware of a public data repository for this type of info. If someone on here does - PLEASE share!
