For Sale: 1973 Ford Mustang in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

With its cool color coordination and good investments, this 1973 Ford Mustang Convertible shows it has appeal in both its fundamentals and uniqueness.

We love a color like Brilliant Black. It looks like a starry night where the darkness is broken up by the metallic element embedded in the paint. So while the color is like midnight, it really pops under the noon sun. And a convertible is the kind of car that always belongs in the sunshine. It's part of a full custom package that includes the red painted hood stripes, added hood scoop trim, and a set of black American Muscle 18-inch wheels. The full presentation of the car isn't perfect, but the overall point is something more. What we like about this car is that it's a drop-top with a unique style, and it represents the last of the first-gen convertibles. There would be no second-gen factory ragtops, and so these always stand out as a defining moment in the Mustang's history. And this one makes it more fun to show off with a custom style and a driver-quality appearance that's easy to take on the road.

The newer black convertible top looks good against the paint, but for true distinction, you'll want to power it down. The bold red interior looks like hot lava radiating from within the dark exterior, and it even coordinates with the stripes. There are also provisions for some nice classic features that will just need servicing if you want them to function again. This includes the AM radio that's there for display, and there's even a newer compressor for the factory air conditioning. And from day one, you can also tell this meant to be a driver-focused car. High-back front bucket seats and a center console in-between give you a commanding feeling when it's time to hit the road.

Under the hood is Ford's hardy 302 cubic-inch B8 with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor on top. There are also solid newer investments to keep this a cruiser with an aluminum radiator, front suspension components, and dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. There's also a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and modern sport tires afforded by the wheel upgrade. Plus, the power brakes with front discs feel excellent. We're told it has a new master cylinder and booster to really add confidence.

It's time to have some driver-ready fun with a long-body cruiser classic. So if you're looking to drive a distinct drop-top, call today!
