This 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 comes with the right original paperwork to really showcase a well-kept local classic. But you'll love it for much more than its history. After all, a bold color combo, proper V8 power, and an A/C interior are all part of a terrific formula for a cool-cruising pony car.
The bright red follows in the great tradition of hot Mustangs in bold colors. It also provides a nice backdrop to all the aggressive Mach 1 pieces presented in black. It starts with the NACA ram air hood that really loves to attract attention. It coordinates with the front air dam, rear spoiler, and revised stripe package for a very sporty look. You'll find a lot more period-correct elements on this coupe. It includes the body-colored urethane front, a mirror-like chrome rear bumper, and the Mag wheels retain their pony center cap. It's a highly authentic presentation that feels right on a coupe with a DSO code for the Atlanta region. That's important, because the documentation looks like this has been a local boy its whole life so far. We even have the original window sticker that shows it was sold new only about an hour from our showroom!
The well-done black interior goes quite nicely against the red exterior. The Mach 1 was a premium package from Ford, and that's reflected in a comfortable experience with high-back bucket seats, an armrest center console, and a wood-rimmed three-spoke sports steering wheel. There's even plenty of wood-like inserts on the door panels and dash for a period-correct premium feeling. But because they also wanted to make sure this is a comfortable classic for modern times, you also have worthwhile upgrades like cold-blowing R134a air conditioning and an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth connections.
This H-code coupe has the a proper 351 cubic-inch V8 under the hood, and it's even believed to be original to this local classic. You'll see terrific factory-style survivor pieces throughout the engine bay. But there's also the right investments, including an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, MSD ignition, and good hoses. Out on the road, this is a smooth cruiser as the V8 delivers plenty of power through the Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, with power steering, power brakes with front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As, this significant is the kind of classic that loves a Sunday drive.
The sale comes with terrific paperwork, including the factory buildsheet, dealer invoice, original window sticker, bill of sale, owner's manual, service manuals, and maintenance records. So if you're looking for a final-year first-gen pony car that also has a story to tell, call today!
