1973 Ford Mustang Convertible
1973 Ford Mustang Convertible
1973 brought the last year of the "big" Mustang. It was to be replaced by a smaller, lighter breed, therefore, most of the changes for '73 were merely cosmetic. This year was to become the last Mustang Convertible for many years.
For consignment a 1973 2-Door Convertible version in good to fair condition. Owned by the same family since new, this car underwent a respray in 2011, and had a new carburetor put on in 2015. Showing normal wear, this car has fairly low mileage for its age.
Wimbledon White was resprayed in 2011 and is in good condition. A large, square, chrome headlamp bezel is seen and is correct for this year, and a color keyed urethane front bumper has replaced the chrome units of the previous years. The front parking lights are now placed vertically in the front grille. A new, grained, black applique with bright trim was placed on the rear body panel between the tail lights, as chrome trim around the tail lights now is present. Standard polished 5-spoke Mustang logo wheels are wrapped by Goodyear Eagles and are seen all around. The black convertible top appears in good condition.
Trim CA denotes black knitted vinyl high back buckets that flank a large center console storage “glove box” which makes its way from the back bench in matching trim, to the bottom of the dash and includes the ashtray, automatic shifter and a Mustang clock. Making its way vertically in the center of the dash are an AM/FM/Cassette radio, and climate controls. Circular gauges are inset at a raked angle on the driver's side of the dash and are fronted by an aftermarket leather wrapped steering wheel. A switch for the power convertible top is seen and is in working condition. Door panels are in good condition, and show some wear with time, as do what is assumed black carpet which has faded to dark brown throughout.
An 8-cylinder 351ci Cobra Jet Engine sits within an unrestored and original engine bay. Attached is a C-6 automatic transmission, which puts power back to a 3.25:1 rear axle.
Some surface rust is seen peeking through the original undercoating, particularly in the rocker panel areas. Also surface rust is seen under the drivers and passenger doors. Otherwise underside is fairly clean with some patina on surfaces.
A one family owned Mustang in mostly good to some fair condition, unrestored but resprayed version which runs great, starts easily, and shifts smoothly. Could be a daily driver, or a restoration project, either way the basics are here for a fair price.
