Description

HEAVILY DOCUMENTED! ORIGINAL 351 CLEVELAND, 4 SPD, A/C, VERY CLEAN MUSTANG VERT!

There are not many cars that can compete with a Ford Mustang convertible for appealing to the general public. EVERYONE loves a vintage Mustang, and this 1973 Mustang convertible has a lot to offer: big 351 Cleveland V8, a 4-speed, lots of options, awesome paperwork, and a great look that will always have a long list of admirers.

The '73 Mustang was the end of an era, and while these ponies aren't as popular as the earlier models, if you want a vintage Mustang with a top that goes down, it's still an A-list ride. The code 6E Medium Bright Yellow (nice name, Ford) paint is a rather unusual choice, but looks great on the long hood and rounded quarter panels. This car was painted a few years ago, and thanks to a lifetime in a warm, dry climate, shows no issues in any of the usual spots. The doors fit well and close easily, which means it's solid underneath and we like the fact that they skipped stripes and spoilers and just let it be itself. Paint is very good, with a great shine, and even the urethane front bumper is in excellent condition with no cracks or major damage. The grille, rear bumper chrome, and big taillights are also in excellent condition, suggesting a car that has always been loved. This bright yellow ragtop probably looks even better in person as it does in photos, and there's nothing scary hiding in the corners.

The interior is in fantastic condition and here you can see just how well-maintained this car really is. The handsome high-back buckets are in great shape with only minor wear on the driver's outer bolster and the black carpets are so dark that they look like they've never seen the afternoon sun. There's also a center console with a clock and the shifter for the very rare 4-speed manual gearbox, and factory A/C is a somewhat rare option on a convertible and it blows cold. The gauges are new replacements with clear lenses and bright markings and there's a set of auxiliary dials in the center stack. The original AM/FM radio has been replaced by a later AM/FM/cassette unit designed with Mustangs in mind, and the original steering wheel has a custom leather wrap that actually looks pretty good. Overhead, a recent black power convertible top with a glass rear window retracts with a touch of a button, and stashes under a black boot, while the trunk offers a correct mat and what just might be the original spare tire.

The engine bay is just as clean as the rest of the car, with the original, numbers-matching 351 Cleveland V8 still delivering the horsepower. The 351-4V (which is Ford-speak for 4-barrel carburetor) engine was the top performer in 1973, and it's still rather robust today. It's nestled deep in there under the A/C compressor, so there's not a lot to show off, but it's fully functional, clean, and ready to rock. Underneath, the 4-speed manual gearbox shifts well and is supported by a set of 3.25 gears on a Track-Lok limited slip. There are decades' worth of receipts with the car, and the underside proves that this car has always been properly maintained; it isn't restored but it's in excellent shape, indicative of a life lived in a warm climate. There's a nice V8 burble from the exhaust and it sits on Magnum 500 wheels with fat 225/70/15 performance radials all around.

Heavily documented with a Marti Report, dealer invoice, original bill of sale, maintenance records, and an owner's manual, this is one of the very best '73 Mustangs we've ever featured. Don't worry, you'll never regret buying a good one, so call now!
