For sale is this incredible, very original, 1973 Mustang Convertible, with its’ original numbers matching 302 c.i. engine, two-barrel carburetor and three-speed Cruise-O-Matic C4 transmission. It has plenty of get-up and go. The 1973 Mustang was the last of the “classic”, first generation Mustangs, as well as the last Ford factory built convertible for many years. These cars are beginning to get their well-deserved recognition and are appreciating in value.
This particular car rolled off the Dearborne assembly line mid-September 1972 and was sold by the Lucas Ford Dealership in Burlington, New Jersey. The original factory Eminger Invoice, Marti Report, along with the original build sheet go with the car and document its authenticity. These documents list the original factory options.
I bought the car with 83,327 miles from the original owner’s family and have owned it since 1994. It has been garage kept and meticulously cared for all its life.
The car has its flawless original Black Deluxe Interior and full console with clock. Standard features such as power steering, power disc brakes, power top with glass rear window, and more. It originally had an AM radio and was upgraded to AM/FM with dash and door speakers and correct door speaker grills (the original AM radio comes with the car).
The body on this car is in fantastic condition with no filler anywhere on the vehicle. The quarter panels, deck lid, doors, passenger floors, front fenders, fender aprons, and front valance are original to the car with no signs of rust or accident repair. The top is in perfect condition.
The car underwent a minor restoration and has only accumulated about 3,500 miles since. The restoration was essentially a refresh of the engine bay, some interior components, replacement of the trunk floor and tail panel sheet metal, all the correct fasteners and the best OEM parts available were used. Open the hood and you will find the correct belts, hoses, starter solenoid, voltage regulator, yellow top coil, air cleaner, decals, paint marks, and other authentic touches, such as, the shock tower braces, head light buckets, and hood latch brackets are painted factory “Slop Gray”, and the hood latch and hinges are correct bare metal (phosphate & oil) appearance. The undercarriage was not touched.
With the exception of the trunk floor, you won’t find reproduction metal anywhere on this car. As a matter of fact, if you pull up the carpet you will see that all the floors are still covered in factory paint and sealer that looks like it was applied yesterday. Even the brightwork, stainless trim, and chrome on the car is in great condition!
Open the trunk and you will find the correct splatter paint, the correct scissor jack and lug wrench, full-size spare tire and mounting hardware. This car even has the original convertible top boot cover with its’ original boot bag!
Open the door and you will find the correct date coded seat belts, a flawless Ford dash pad, factory steering wheel, and flawless original vinyl upholstery with original “Comfort-weave” vinyl inserts that are no longer available and not in reproduction.
Added during the restoration were the front spoiler, side stripes, and the black “Tu-tone Hood Option,” complete with a NASA style scooped hood. Also added a dual exhaust system with correct chrome tips and lower valance. And lastly, I changed the factory 2B red color to its’ current Ford Gold Glow.
Mechanically, everything works! The top, horn, dash lights, indicators, buzzers, turn signals, brake lights, headlights, windshield wipers, and cigarette lighter all work perfectly. The engine is all original with new radiator, alternator, and battery. The original Motorcraft carburetor was rebuilt about 5 years ago by Pony Carburetors.
This car looks, drives, runs, and performs perfectly. Just look at the photos and you will see a lot of work went into this car. This car is a survivor that will surely continue to increase in value as time goes by. Very few of these 45-year-old cars are running around with all flawless original sheet metal and original “born with” numbers matching drive-trains.
This car must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated. Price is negotiable. Payment in U.S. dollars or by bank to bank money transfer only.
