The Ford Mustang was one of the most popular cars produced in the 1960s and early 1970s, and it was not without reason.  Among its virtues were sporty styling, excellent performance, and a comfortable ride.  All of these things, combined with an attractive price, proved just the ticket with a whole generation of American car buyers.  55 years after its introduction, the iconic Mustang’s pull is just as strong.

What is most striking about this 1973 Ford Mustang Coupe is its simplicity.  While few coupes remain, they were Mustang’s most popular model in 1973.  Although convertibles and Mach I’s may be the ones you see at shows, this is the one you, or your older brother, or your father, actually owned back in the day.  Simply put, this coupe, with its period color and basic hubcaps, evokes a quiet authenticity that speaks volumes.

This low-mileage Mustang is finished in its original color of Ivy Glow, and retains the majority of its original paint.  The color contrasts nicely with its optional Black vinyl top.  Its finish is further accentuated by chrome and brightwork that has a nice shine.  A sporty color-keyed urethane front bumper and new whitewall tires complete the look.

The interior is equally sporty, with bucket seats finished in 2-tone Avocado vinyl.  The dashboard, door panels, carpeting and headliner are also in excellent condition.  You will also appreciate the convenience of its optional power steering.  The original Philco AM radio adds a period touch.

Under the hood is the original 302 CID V-8 with a 2-barrel carburetor mated to its original Select-Shift Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission.  Recent updates include the following:

  • New tires
  • New battery
  • Newer gas tank
  • Newer exhaust system
  • Newer shocks

Having just 42,800 original miles, this car runs and drives as well as it looks.

With just three owners through the course of its life, this Mustang was in the hands of its second owner for almost 40 years!

Minor imperfections in the finish, top, and brightwork do not detract from the overall appearance of this car.

If a Mustang with all the looks and feel of the 1970s is what you desire, this is the pony you’ll want to put in your stall today!
