Call me crazy, but I''m having a hard time getting over the price tag on this 1973 Mustang convertible. Classic ponycar fun with a top that goes down, a 351 under the hood, factory A/C, and a clean body, all for the price of a used Toyota? Heck, at that price, I''ll take two! Bright white paint has always been a Mustang hallmark and it looks especially good on the ''73 models with their urethane front bumpers. As a southern car all its life, this Mustang shows signs of previous problems in any of the usual areas, and the finish looks great. Is it show quality? Not really, but you''ll definitely get a lot of admiring glances as you motor down the road and queries whether it''s for sale when you stop for gas. It''s the kind of car that makes folks fall in love and get all nostalgic, and that''s entirely the point of owning a vintage Mustang. The black lower cladding makes it look long and sleek in profile, and it still shows the classic long nose/short deck design that p[practically defined the pony car segment. There''s still a bit of chrome, plus a blacked-out front grille and the three-element taillights, all of which make it instantly identifiable as America''s favorite convertible. The contrasting blue interior, complete with bucket seats and a console, gives it a sunny disposition and adds value. With beautifully upholstered seats that use correct materials and patterns, correct carpets, and door panels that are quite possibly original-issue, it shows extremely well. You''ll notice a lot of options on this particular Mustang convertible, including A/C, power windows (rare!), and an AM/FM stereo radio. The original gauges cover only the basics of speed and fuel level, but a pair of white-faced auxiliary gauges hang under the dash to watch temperatures and oil pressure, and there''s a clock in the center console. A newer blue convertible top matches the interior and looks a bit more dashing than the usual black or white, and with a glass rear window it seals up better than most of its peers. There''s also a matching blue boot for when the top is down, which I''m sure will be most of the time. The trunk is clean and fitted with a non-stock mat, but this isn''t a show car, it''s a fun car! The top engine in 1973 was the 351 Cleveland, which was famous for its performance in the Boss 351 of 1971. In this car, it''s a bit tamer but makes smooth torque and was rebuilt just 2600 miles ago so, it starts easily and definitely gets attention with twin Flowmasters underneath. Originally fitted with a performance-choking Autolite 2-barrel carburetor, it now has an Edelbrock unit along with a set of chrome valve covers and an open-element air cleaner. The C4 3-speed automatic has quick reflexes and an easy-going nature, and the 9-inch is full of easy-cruising gears so it''s ready for a Sunday afternoon trip just about anywhere convertibles are welcome. The original 14-inch wheels with finned hubcaps now sport 205/75/14 whitewall radials, which complete the look. A really nice, entry-level collectable that''s sure to bring a smile to your face, this Mustang is one of those rare cars that under-promises and over-delivers. Call today!
