I wonder why it is pink?? It looks like a Mary K car color pink.
I wonder if it is/was a Mary K car that was given to the top Mary K cosmetic seller in the sellers region? Then sometime in it's life it got transported to where you live.

I think it was primered and it has faded out to that color, but I could be wrong. According to the details in the add its gray.

Yes, the pink is primer. This is a car that has been exposed, long-term, to salt air.

Yeah that's going to be hard to find in Greece. We can say pass here in the states because here its just another Mustang we can find them pretty easy. But a car so far from its homeland is pretty rare. Would be interesting to find out the story behind it. Would be a beauty once shes all fixed up just going to cost a lot to round up all the parts it needs.

If you do end up going with it let me know I have all the shop manuals for the 72's. Would not mind making copies for you.

you can pass it up in Greece...for the amount of money youre gonna have in sheet metal and labor you could buy a more solid car here and ship it...here is a car looks fairly solid from the outside but needs some subframe repair http://huntsville.craigslist.org/cto/3925085626.html

71 thru 73 would probably be the most expensive model year to rebuild. Not all parts are reproduced and the one that are are typically more expensive than early years.
