For Sale: 1973 Ford Mustang in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

For sale in our Orlando showroom is this 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1. The Ford Mustang Mach 1 is a performance-oriented option package of the Ford Mustang, originally introduced in August 1968, as a package for the 1969 model year. The Mach 1 title adorned performance oriented Mustang offerings until the original retirement of the moniker in 1978. In 1971 the Mach 1 started with a base engine of the 302ci based Windsor motor, with a 2 barrel carburetor, followed by four optional 351 Cleveland engines - the 2-V, 4-V, the C.J.(Cobra Jet) and H.O.(BOSS 351. Though available as a visual, non-functional item, they could be made fully functional on models ordered with the Ram Air option, which included vacuum controlled 'flappers' at each scoop, and a fiberglass under-hood 'plenum' that directed cool, outside air into the carburetor. The ram-air option included a two-tone hood paint treatment in either 'matte black' or 'argent' (matte silver), coordinated to the color of the Mach 1 decals and striping. In addition, all Ram Air-equipped Mustangs of this generation came equipped with twist-style, chrome-plated hood lock pins. In 1973, the front bumper was enlarged in accordance with new NHTSA standards, and all Mustang models had their sportlamps changed to a vertical orientation at each end of the grill. As the new bumper covered part of the front valance (and therefore the previous turn signal location), the sportlamps also served as turn signals. Both a Mach 1 and base grille were offered, with differing insert patterns. This particular Mach 1 Mustang is equipped with a 429 C.I.D V8 and 3 speed automatic transmission that makes for a powerful and very desirable combination. The bright red paint is without a doubt the key factor drawing all the attention to this car but the black and red vinyl interior adds a touch of elegance making you want to take the wheel. The options on this beautiful Mach 1 include: am/fm radio, power brakes, power steering, seatbelts and vinyl interior.
