Ford Mustang 1973

General description : 1973 Ford Mustang Convertible Muscle cars belong to a class all there own and one of the known models throughout the world is the classic Mustang.  From starting production in 1965 (or halfway through 64) the Mustang has evolved but continued to be popular and among the highest selling vehicles even today.  One of the coolest things about a particular line of cars that has survived for that long is that you can see the evolution throughout years of how little changes were made to modernize the overall look.  Well this 73 Mustang Convertible marked some big changes for Mustangs.  The bodys became more streamline but still retained a lot of those older Mustang features like the triple tail lights in rear and wide open front grill.  The rear fender slightly elevates just past the roof line giving it that muscle car feel.  This classic underwent a total restoration in the past by the current owner who has had the vehicle in his possession for the past 20 years.  The car is regularly driven so you know it has been kept mechanically sound.  With some very minor detail work this classic could be taken from its current state to high quality show car with ease.  Not to say it isn't show worth at this point as the car shows well and gets a lot of attention.  It is just evident that it is driven and wasn't locked away on a trailer since being completed.  It is all original from front to rear and looks great.  The body is coated in a very nice Orange with the period correct Black hockey stick stripe running down the sides.  The front bumpers are painted to match as they would be originally with the rear bumper being nicely chromed.  All of the stainless trim around the windows is there framing the glass which is in good shape as well.  The car rolls around town on the original style wheels with thin white wall tires. Under the hood of this classic is a 302 V8 that Ford had perfected at this time.  These motors run very well and are surprisingly strong for a small block.  They are fairly easy to work on and finding parts for these engines is extremely easy.  Most of the components are painted Ford Blue to match there original style.  The automatic transmission shifts smoothly with no problems.  Both power steering and power brakes are in place making it an even better driver.    The interior is completed in Tan vinyl and is very comfortable.  The high back bucket seats look great in place and the back bench allows plenty of leg room.  As mentioned earlier the car is all original so the interior utilizes the original style trim, knobs, gauges, switches, etc and everything works properly.  The T-handle automatic shifter is mounted to the floor and framed in a nice original factory console.  The upholstery on the top has a fresh look because it is all brand new.  It is power assisted and raises/lowers like new.  Hop in this cool muscle car and go for $26,900.00!

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
