The 1973 Ford Mustang is the last of the first-gen cars, and so
it's a distinct part of the legend. And when you're looking to
represent history, it's terrific to find a highly original one like
this. As you dig into the details, you'll not only see a V8-powered
coupe, but also a level of preservation that will have you talking
about barn finds and survivors.
The story we're told is that this was with the same family for the
first 45+ years (mother and son). We even have the original window
sticker that shows it was purchased a few hours from our showroom,
and it's believed to be a North Carolina coupe all its life. The
car had even spent about two decades off the road and stored. It
was only sold outside of the family for the first time a couple of
years ago, and it has been properly resurrected to be a good driver
today. The Light Pewter Metallic paint looks good. There's a nice
shine and just the right amount of wear to make you want to tell
the car's history. The panels line up well with the kind of good
care that would make us believe that the claim of the low odometer
representing actual mileage could be true. There have been some
updates along the way like the vinyl sport stripes and wide exhaust
tips. They add some flair, but the overall originality is what's
really going to impress.
The Ginger interior is one of those great 1970s colors, and so it's
great to see it looking so optional and well preserved. High-back
bucket seats, a touch of wood trim, detailed door panels, and a
floor shift for the three-speed auto give you the right vintage
elegance. You'll find minimal signs of wear and use. There's even a
dash cover and floor mats to mitigate. And what you'll really be
impressed with is the love of detail, right down to the working
dome light and Philco AM radio that's still cranking out tunes.
Under the hood is a highly original presentation of the correct 302
cubic-inch V8. And while you may be admiring pieces like the
factory decals, this also has been given the right newer
investments. This includes an alternator, plug wires, and the
radiator. So this hardy Ford powerhouse remains a strong motor.
The sale not only comes complete with the original window sticker,
but also the owner's manual and warranty booklet. This is the
significant year pony car that also has one of the best stories
around. So don't miss this southern 'Stang. Call now!
