Sure, you might still occasionally glimpse a generously proportioned, late first generation representative of Ford\'s beloved Pony Car on the road now and then - maybe even one in open air configuration. Rest assured, it won\'t likely approach the awesomeness of this 1972 Ford Mustang Convertible. This is one of those rare, skillfully modded classics that checks all the right boxes, possessing outstanding curb appeal, a tastefully customized interior and propelled by an enhanced, strong running small block.
It\'s an art form unto itself to lavish just the right level of aftermarket customization on a car so universally recognized - attaining just the right singular appearance without going so far as to detract from the model\'s initial appeal. Mission accomplished on that front. As this \'72 comes into view, you\'ll see right away just how much skilled craftsmanship went into its paint alone. Combining a black metallic backdrop with broad candy apple red accents over the hood, this is a standout job - the shine is undeniably strong, the texture is uniformly smooth as silk and the color combo really comes alive when exposed to the sun. Shaved door handles add to this Pony\'s already abundant distinction, while the added front air dam and rear spoiler look at home in this setting. Your first inclination will almost certainly be to picture yourself behind the wheel of this classic with the blue sky above you, but should clouds encroach, the black convertible top is in great shape and raises into place without issue.
There are plenty more surprises inside the doors in the form of a stellar driving environment. A pair of contoured Corbeau racing seats takes the place of the original buckets and their black leather surfaces, red stitching and embroidered seat backs blend with their surroundings nicely. They straddle a seamlessly installed center console that provides some welcome interior storage space, as well as a pair of cupholders, while just below the floor is lined with fresh matching carpet ornamented with a pair of branded floor mats up front. Farther forward, the compact Grant steering wheel not only increases leg room for the driver but it looks great perched on the column, and if you peer through it you\'ll see the blue glow of the Dakota Digital gauges now recessed into the instrument panel. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD player with a removable head pairs with speakers mounted in the door panels to provide a quality audio experience.
Plenty of eager power comes via the 302 cubic inch V8 between the shock towers. Enhanced with a Sniper fuel injection system as well as a number of other quality components, it\'s good for well in excess of 400 horsepower and is nicely dressed in an array of chrome components that include its valve covers and pulley system. The engine exhales into a pair of full length headers to minimize back pressure and pairs with a 3-speed automatic transmission that\'s shifting with slip free precision and a sizable aluminum radiator is in front with an electric fan to ensure that operating temperatures stay under control. The added power rack and pinion steering provides an infinitely more refined experience behind the wheel that could be achieved with vintage box technology, while power disc brakes at both ends bring the set of awesome 18 black Foose wheels to prompt, fade resistant stops.
