Gateway Classic Cars is thrilled to offer this stunning 1973 Ford Mustang Convertible at its Philadelphia showroom located in West Deptford, NJ! Representing the last year of the first generation, this 1973 Mustang 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! Purchased with 83,327 actual miles from the original owner in 1994, the car underwent a minor restoration and has only accumulated about 3,500 miles since the purchase! The restoration was essentially a paint job, refresh of the engine bay, some interior components and replacement of the trunk floor and tail panel sheet metal utilizing all of the best OEM parts available! The body on this car is in excellent condition and you won't find reproduction metal anywhere on this car except for the trunk floor. While it left the factory red, it was repainted Gold Glow which shimmers beautifully in the light and looks incredible as its cruises down the road! Also added was a front spoiler, side stripes, and the black "Tu-tone Hood Option," complete with a NASA style scooped hood. Open that hood to reveal the numbers-matching 302 CID V8 engine as well as correct belts, hoses, starter solenoid, voltage regulator, yellow top coil, air cleaner, and factory decals! The original Motorcraft� two-barrel carburetor was rebuilt five years ago by Pony Carburetors and operates better than it did new! Take note of the authentic touches including paint marks, shock tower braces, head light buckets, and hood latch brackets that are painted factory "Slop Gray." Even the hood latch and hinges are correct in their appearance! Head on over to the trunk space 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! Hop on inside to check out its original Black Deluxe interior and full console with clock! Put on some tunes and put the black power top down on those gorgeous days to get the complete experience! Note the correct date coded seat belts, a clean Ford dash pad, factory steering wheel and gorgeous vinyl upholstery with original "Comfort-weave" vinyl inserts that are no longer available! Rest your hand on the sporty shifter that operates the three-speed Cruise-O-Matic C4 transmission. No need to shift gears, this Mustang has got you covered! This car performs just as it looks, terrific! 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 the years pass. Very few of these 45-year-old cars are running around in this condition! There no need to do anything else as it's been done for you! The only thing you need to do is pick up the phone and call us today to secure this beauty! Additional features include Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, AM/FM with dash and door speakers and correct door speaker grills, duel exhaust with correct chrome tips and lower valance.
