Not sure anyone can help with this one but all the videos appear like the cabin space is very spacious. Thoughts or resources?

Headroom shown as 40.3" without sunroof, 38.0 " with a sunroof. I have one on order, without sunroof, and I'm 6' 4". For me, 38.3" is the minimum.

You should be good to go, as long as you skip the sunroof.

I am glad this post started , the info is great the fact you are 6’4 and almost had enough headroom with the sunroof just illustrates how tall the cabin height is. At 5’11 I should have no problem with my sunroof in my Velocity Blue Lariat. Thanks

I know the interior height is greater with NO sunroof, however, when you retract the sunroof visor, wouldn't you have added inches of headroom space again? What might hit your head is the top of the headliner that sits between the driver's side door and the start of the sunroof (hopefully that makes).

Yeah you gain maybe 3/4". I'm sensitive to this being 6' 4" and a bit long in the torso.

For example, love convertibles, but I just don't fit in many. Wanted a Mazda Miata, but not nearly enough headroom, so I found a 1997 Toyota Paseo convertible. It has a height adjustable seat, which made it work OK. My 2013 Volvo C70 is 38.3", which I consider my minimum, giving me about 1/4" above my head. I don't fit in a 1965-1970 Mustang convertible, but I fit in my 1973 model, as it was a shortened Torino rather than a Falcon-based car, and has a lot more headroom than the earlier models. When headroom is short in a convertible, I'm often also staring at the sun visors, rather than looking through the windshield. Don't fit in a 2002-2005 Thunderbird either, for all the same reasons.

Here is a picture of me driving the 1973 Mustang showing what I mean. It works for me, and the non-sunroof Maverick will work fine.

I am 6’3”, more torso than leg, and I comfortably drive a 2006 Civic. The Maverick has two more inches of headroom than the Civic, so I am hopeful that it should be fine.

Thanks for the feedback and resources. I can look forward to the maverick arriving now.

It's not a Mach 1. They were only available as a SportsRoof (fastback). However, it's real common for owners, like the one who had it before me, when the car gets repainted, to add a front spoiler and Mach 1 stripe to their car. That was the case here. The bright yellow is a great color, but I'm partial to Bright Red.

It's also unusual in that it is has the 250 cu. in. inline six. Only 723 convertibles built with a six that year. I was looking for a red one with a six and this is what I found a few years ago. Most that are left have had the six swapped out for a V8. It's also unusual that for 1973, all convertibles came from the factory with power front disk brakes standard, even with a six.

I'll be all Ford for the first time in my life, and fit easily in both. The Toyota and the Volvo are for sale.
