For Sale: 1973 Ford Mustang in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 comes with a cool midwestern story, but you'll love it for much more than its history. After all, a good color combo, great Mach 1 touches, and the numbers-matching V8 are all part of a terrific formula for a cool-cruising pony car.

We love this car in yellow and black. It's a great 1970s color combo that also knows how to attract in modern times. It's the factory-correct hue, but this was updated about 20 years ago, and that's key to telling this car's unique tale. The consignor hunted this car down because a buddy told him the story of a Kansas man who had stored his Mach 1 because it was supposed to go to his son. When the son moved overseas, the Mustang was mostly hidden away in a garage for years. So it's a touch of a barn find story where an iconic pony car was sitting and waiting for a new enthusiast to discover it. So we like how the bright yellow looks good but with just the right hint of age to tell a fun classic car story. Plus, the yellow is a nice contrast for the best dark Mach 1 details, like the NACA ram air hood that really loves to attract attention. It coordinates with the blackout grille, rear spoiler, window louvers, and revised stripe package for a very sporty look. You'll find a lot more period-correct elements on this coupe. It includes the body-colored urethane front bumper, a chrome rear bumper, and the Mag wheels that retain their pony center cap. It's a highly authentic presentation that makes this one feel special.

The well-done black interior goes quite nicely against the exterior color combo. The Mach 1 was a premium package from Ford, and that's reflected in a comfortable experience with high-back bucket seats and an armrest center console. There are even newer pieces like the dash pad and headliner to make this quite inviting. You may choose to add some more seat cushioning or restore the air conditioning (most of the components come with the sale,) but overall you'll be impressed with how cruiser ready this one already is. You even have well-placed upgrades like a newer three-spoke sports steering wheel and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with cassette and stereo speakers.

This H-code coupe has a proper 351 cubic-inch V8 under the hood, and it's even the numbers-matching motor! And this powerhouse has been treated properly everywhere from the added flair of the polished valve covers to the utility of the newer battery. Out on the road, this is a smooth cruiser as the V8 delivers plenty of power through the Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, with power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As, this is the kind of classic that loves a Sunday drive.

The sale comes with the owner's manual and maintenance records. So if you're looking for a final-year first-gen pony car that also has a story to tell, call today!
