1972 MUSTANG SPRINT CONVERTIBLE (1 of 50)



Quote:
50 identical Sprint convertibles were assembled in March at the Dearborn plant. The VIN numbers for the 50-of-a-kind convertibles were sequential from 2F03F184256 to 2F03F184305. After the parade, the cars were distributed to the Washington-area Ford dealers and sold to the public for an asking sticker price of $3,272.22 or higher. A customer/dealer copy of a Special Equipment Parts List from FOMOCO dated March 3, 1972, lists 27 parts as part of the Sprint package. All the cars came with a 302 engine, automatic transmission, AM radio, deluxe sprint convertible interior, power steering and disc brakes. The red, white and blue Sprint theme is on the outside of the car with Grabber Blue rocker panels, rear valence, rear panel and front hood stripes. The interior continues this sprint theme with white highback front seats with blue inserts along with a matching rear seat. It has an automatic power top with a solid rear glass window.

As you can see at the bottom of this ad, the 351 HO package was expensive. It was only available with a 4 speed. The package included 9" rear with 3.91 gears, staggered shocks and competition suspension along with 15" wheel and tires. Ram Air was not available. The only markings for the 351 HO are the top of the air cleaner decal.

1972 351 HO production numbers:

Mach 1: 336
SportsRoof: 30
Coupe: 19
Conv: 13


Ford built 134,817 Mustangs in 1972

1971 GTO with D98: Rally Stripes



The Rally Stripes were always two colors, in this case red and white, while the Judge stripes were always three colors. Same for 1970.

1969 428 CJ Mach 1 with standard F70x14 WSW tires



It took me almost an hour to find this single photo of a '69 Mach 1 with STD tires (from the right angle). No, not every Mach 1 had RWL tires. Nor did they have (which MOST of the cars I saw had):

Chrome Magnum 500 Wheels - NA
Front Spoiler - NA
Rear Spoiler - NA
Rear Window Louvers - NA

NA means Not Available from the Factory as a regular option.


BTW . . . the above car is a pre-production 1969 Mach 1. Notice it is missing the chrome trim around the grille and the hood pins are lower down the hood than a production car.

1969 Ford Promotional Photo - Mustang Mach 1



Notice it has GT hubcaps (should be plain) and there is no "Cobra Jet" emblem on the shaker.

See . . . even the Factory can get it wrong

In 1969, Ford entered the SCCA National Rally Race Series by fielding five 1969 Mustang Mach 1′s. Ford won the Manufacturer’s Class A Championship with Team 4, Nathan “Available” Jones, Russell “Aligator” Brown and car 4, this 428 Cobra Jet Mach 1. After winning the Championship, the car was sold to the driver, Nathan “Available” Jones who placed it on display in a museum. Upon his death, the car was sold to a private collection.

Did you know . . .

The 1969 Mach 1 came standard with Hood Pins which you could delete. Very few were built that way. The same for the Mustang GT.
