    If the interior is that corroded I'd hate to see the frame. On the link with the Sprite what is the point of dangling dice from and rear view mirror mounted to the dash? :BangHead:

    Where did you get that number? I've been following these cars for over 10 years and I've never seen such a huge variation from the generally accepted number of 842.

    Kevin McCabe.........695 for U.S. There were abt 139 made for canada and 3 for other export. that brings us to 837 so these numbers are obviously off a bit.

    First this from Kevin....
    I thought in the interests of getting off my butt andchecking the production records, I should forward the following. It'staken from the 1970 "F" model official vehicle production programnumber 75, dated June 30,1970

    842 built in total, all at Belvidere.

    703 shown as U.S. Domestic built-up units
    139 shown as U.S. plants built-up units for Canada,
    3 Export-Import division built upunits. A note at the bottom of the page listing the 703 U.S. Domesticunits indicates these cars were included in that total, which means the U.S.actually got 700 of them.

    Then this from Kevin re Canadian cars...
    January 29, 2007
    OK, I've finally made the long trek downstairsand grabbed just the CANADIAN option & accessory report for 1970.
    This report is dated "August 70" (noday of the month) and indicates that 144 Polara convertibles were sold in Canada. So with Bill's report being from September, there's every possiblity thatit could be correct.
    Here's some of the breakdowns from the report.

    Those are very interesting statistics. It would be nice if all that and any other break down info was published on the Hamtramck Registry for all to enjoy.

    Do you guys Figure Kevin McCabe would have any information pertaining to '69 Fury Convertibles?

    He seems to really know his stuff.

    Nick

    Is there a way to contact him?

    Wow, bad shape there. If one does the work themselves they will easily have $30,000+ in a 12,000 car assuming the frame isn't toast. To take them to grade 1 show condition would need professional work $40,000+. Why? I'm probably low on the cost to restore.

    great. If I could choose I would take a turquoise one with a t-code 440 :))
    But an EV2 hemi orange one would be fine, too if it is not total junk (Dave kept me away from the one which floating around for years)

    That's a fascinating breakdown of production numbers. Do stats like this exist for other models (the 300 perhaps?) or was this done through private research?
