FOR SALE: 1973 Ford Mustang
By 1971 the Ford Mustang had grown 8 inches longer and 6 inches wider than the original 1965 model. The Mustang was now a full fledged muscle car moving beyond the 2+2 market niche it created. Engine choices ranged from six cylinder economy to the mighty 429 Super Cobra Jet V8. Starting in 1973 though, many forces were converging to signal a change from the fast and furious start of the 2 + 2. Soaring gas and insurance costs and the addition of emissions and safety equipment brought the muscle car era to an end and Ford began positioning the Mustang as more of a luxury car. The end of 1973 would begin a hiatus for both the V8 engine and the convertible. This 1973 Ford Mustang has been refinished in a factory shade of copper with complimenting off white stripes down the center of the hood and rear deck lid. This is a low mileage, original car that has had only 3 previous owners. We have a copy of the 2nd owner\'s title that shows he purchased the car in 1996 with the mileage at only 29,717. When he sold it in 2011, the car had 50,915 miles! The car has had a professional, high quality paint job and is in very good condition, showing only minor imperfections. The roof is wrapped in white vinyl with no signs of imperfection to be seen. All of the chrome on the Mustang is in great shape with a beautiful luster. The interior of the car is finished in white vinyl seats with black carpet and a black dashboard with no major signs of wear or imperfections to be seen.

The factory gauges on the car remain in place and all look great! The car is powered by a 351 cubic inch, 2 valve V8 engine. The 351 is connected to an automatic transmission.
