seems like i remember seeing reference to a "sport coupe" or something like that, not very many were made, was a coupe w/ Mach stripes. Also there was the Sprint package in 72, you could get either fastbacks or coupes in that model.

I seem to recall a "Twister" edition and what about the one with the USA badge?

I think the Twister is a 69 or 70, but I could be wrong... The shields are the Sprits.

http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Track/3454/. Has some good info. on them, they weren't listed at NADA so I can't help you with prices, sounds like they are pretty rare. Good luck!

Well, I was just at the local bookstore in the mall today looking at a book on Mustangs, and it showed a pic of the Olympic Sprint, or something like that, made for Washington, D.C.(not sure for what purpose, didn't read that far) But, only 50 were made, according to the book. It was a '72 I think, white and light blue. Pretty neat.

How about the "Shelby Europa"?
350GT and 500 GT available with either 351 (350GT) or 351/429 engines (500GT).
The Belgian importer Claude DuBois let Carroll Shelby build 14 cars during 1971 and 72.
Most of them were sportsroofs, but a couple of convertibles are known. SAAC has had articles about them in the past.

With the 1972 Sprint models, which were red, white, and blue, you could get all three body styles. There were regular production sportsroofs and hardtops, but there were a batch of 50 convertibles made for the Cherry Blossom festival in Washington, D.C.

In 1971 there was a special value package for the Coupes. It gave you the Mach I style hood and side stripes like the Boss 351.

There were also numerous local promotions and lesser known "packages" that would get put together. One example from 1971 was a Pewter Coupe that came with a Vermilion interior. There were 50 made, all carrying the rare "89" DSO but sold to dealers all across the country.
