VIP Weekly Fun Question for July 21, 2012
SUPERSTARS!

This week's VIP WFQ was submitted by CASPIANWENDELL as a result of his having won the last contest. Thanks, CASPIANWENDELL!

The Problem:

What was the base price differences between the 6 cylinder and V8 Mustangs identified below? The correct response will cite the base prices and the differences in prices between those two applications.

71 convertible with 6 cylinder and V8
72 mach1 fastback with 6 cylinder and V8
73 Grandé hard top with 6 cyliner and V8

This contest is tentatively scheduled to end at approximately 7:00 PM (CST) on Monday, July 23, 2012.

Good Luck!

BT

P.S.: Changed the question from "V6" in the responses to "6 cylinder" at approximately 4:45PM (CST) on Saturday (July 21, 2012) to eliminate any confusion.

Per the source, the 6 Cylinder 71 Convertible base price was $3,227 and the V8 Convertible base price was $3,322...a difference of $95.

There were no 6 cylinder Mach 1 built in 1972. The base price for the V8 Mach 1 was $3,053...a difference of $3,053.

The 6 cylinder 73 Grandé base price was $2,946 and the V8 Grandé's base price was $3,033...a difference of $87.
Again, a couple of you did come "close" but no one provided the desired response.

Do the RIGHT thing.

This is a loaded Question but......................................

1971 Vert base price was $3322.00
V6= -20%
V8= +25%

1972 Mach1 base price- $3003.00
Same as above

1973 Grandé base price- $3003.00
Same deductions or additions

All base on NADA

Please note that I changed the question from "V6" in the responses to "6 cylinder" at approximately 4:45PM (CST) on Saturday (July 21, 2012) to eliminate any confusion.

The problem was worded correctly but the "responses" might have created confusion where I indicated "V6" instead of "6 cylinder."

It appears that CaspainWendell's submitted problem "stumped" y'all.
A couple of you "came close" but no one submitted the desired response. To recap the problem:

What was the base price differences between the 6 cylinder and V8 Mustangs identified below? The correct response will cite the base prices and the differences in prices between those two applications.

71 convertible with 6 cylinder and V8
72 mach1 fastback with 6 cylinder and V8
73 Grandé hard top with 6 cyliner and V8

Per the source, the 6 Cylinder 71 Convertible base price was $3,227 and the V8 Convertible base price was $3,322...a difference of $95.

The 6 cylinder 73 Grandé base price was $2,946 and the V8 Grandé's base price was $3,033...a difference of $87.
