This 1973 Ford Mustang Convertible is a true classic that has also
been upgraded for extra small block V8 pep and extra style. It's
the kind of drop-top that you just can't help but want to take out
for a sunny Sunday drive.
Ford had the Mustang positioned a little further upscale in 1973.
And while they offered plenty of colors (including four shades of
blue,) it never looked as deep as this. You're looking at an
upgrade to a dark blue later in life. It's a sophisticated color
that has a good shine today, and so it fits in with the way a '73
should be presented while also giving you a distinctive style. The
body keeps a very factory style, right down to the color-matched
front bumper. Even the upgrades are well-integrated because the
sporty NACA duct hood and Mag 500 wheels were part of the options
list back then. We also like the '73 for the history it represents.
This was the final year for the first generation, and they even
feared it might be the last drop-top pony car ever (the convertible
disappeared for an entire generation.) That's why we cherish
The black roof looks quite nice against the dark blue paint. But
with the flip of a switch, the top folds back to show off an even
more distinctive interior. After all, the lighter blue seats
against the exterior paint add a European level of style. And this
is a well-done upgrade where the black inserts in the seats
coordinate with the side panels and dash. Plus, the light blue
convertible boot cover seems to tie it all together nicely. On the
whole, the interior looks good, but it's never too fancy to have
you afraid to have all your friends pile in and go for a ride.
That's because this is built to be a driver. You have good stock
features like the full heat/defrost and an auxiliary gauge package.
And these are joined by upgrades like an AM/FM digital tuner
w/cassette, upgraded speakers, and a column-mounted tach.
The engine bay is attractive. The appeal is not just about the
shine from the valve covers and air grabber, but also functional
pieces like the newer hoses and plug wires. At the heart is Ford's
mighty 302 cubic-inch V8, and this has been upgraded with a Holley
four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake. It makes for a
strong-running power package that loves to hit the road. That's why
you also have good anytime driving features like a three-speed
automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs,
and wide Grand Am GT tires.
A distinct year Mustang meets with added distinct style. So you
don't want to miss this drop-top pony. Call today!!!
