73 convertable body flex

Hi....
I have a 73 Mustang 302 Convertable. Has anyone experianced wheel hop and vibration at certian speeds.(feels like tires are out of ballance except they are not) Everything has been gone over with a fine tooh comb as the car is perfect. I have had braces welded under the doors.
Stablizers front and rear. Wheels and tires are perfect. I have spent thousands to solve this problem. to no avail. The left wheel hops at 45 mph only and 68 to 73 mph only. Otherwise it runs sweet. Would a monticarlo bar help??? I have driven another 73 with the same problem...Any suggestions?

Are the bushings in good shape? A strut bar might help as you suggested, you sound like you already have subframe connectors (which hopefully you had all the braces welded on while the weight was on the wheels)

My car wheel hoped bad (on hard take off) until I installed stiffer springs and lowered it, not sure this is the same issue you have.

Like I said the car is perfect except for the body flex
