Your 72 should have came with a 44, I believe they started using them in 69. Somebody must have swapped it.


I need to clear out some room so I can work on my EB's.

my guess is his wife will steal it for the summer, then my wife will be jelly because she can't remove the top from her xj when she sees it in the parking lot.

I bought her a Convertible stang for our 10 wedding anniversary.....you will be hard pressed to get her out of it once it gets warm.

She won't drive the bronco much.....I am sure she will be either afraid to break it or it will be "to big"
