The 1972 Ford Mustang was promoted as "A beautiful experience," and
in the case of this premium Grande model, they're exactly right.
You're looking at un upper class pony that has been treated with
respect since day one. So the condition of everything from the
original V8, to the loaded interior, to all the right paperwork
tells you this one knows how to deliver on the best nostalgia.
The color of this car is called Gold Glow. That seems like the perfect way to represent the premium Grande trim level. This was the era when Ford wanted to give the Mustang some upper-class moves, and the Grande was it. More expensive than the standard coupe, it received standout pieces like the vinyl roof with the Grande badging, and a unique tape stripe package. These were the kind of things that screamed premium in '72, and they continue to look great today. In fact, the whole car is in stellar condition thanks to the right preservation, as well as never being afraid to invest in proper restoration - including at least one respray over its lifetime. And like a true American classic, there's all the right brightwork with mirror-like bumpers, and plenty of trim around the windows, wheels, and grille. Plus, there has been the addition of the Mustang's Mag wheels, which is the perfect way to convey both sporty and premium.
Inside is more of the premium time capsule feeling. It starts with the two-tone ginger seats finished in comfortable cloth where you sit and durable vinyl in the high traffic areas. It's the kind of design that could only come from the 1970s, and the condition looks like the day this one left the Dearborn assembly plant. All the other pieces from the carpets, to the dash pad, to the door panels all follow this earthy tone. So for those of you who want something else than muscle car black, this is a terrific way to stand out from the crowd. And because the Grande represented the premium end of the Mustang family, it's great to see all those features still present and looking great today. This includes the center console armrest, AM/FM stereo, dual-spoke steering wheel, and even factory air conditioning.
Premium also means power. The original 351 cubic-inch V8 is still looks great with its bold blue block and "Powered by Ford" valve covers. And even the factory stickers around the engine bay help drive home this originality. But if you look closely, you'll see upgrades like a Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. So just like true nostalgia, this looks like how you remembered it, but the V8 performs better than it ever did from the factory. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, keep this classy Mustang an easy cruiser.
The sale comes with all the right paperwork for someone who appreciates a special classic. This includes the original window sticker, factory buildsheet, warranty card, owner's manual, title documentation, and even dealer paperwork. A Grande is an interesting piece of Mustang history that we don't get to see too often, and this is one of the best represented pieces we've seen in quite some time. So it's amazing you can get it all right now for such an affordable price. Call today!!!
