Up for sale is my beautiful '73 convertible! The car is in excellent shape overall, with lots of care, maintenance, and upgrades. Following is best I can describe it:

History:
Purchased in May of '96 from the third owner in California (I believe the car was originally from Kansas but went to California in the mid-70s). I drove it cross-country and it's been garaged in either NY or NJ since. Car has been meticulously maintained; receipts have been kept from the 1980s on. Usage has been limited to highway driving (since I rely on public transportation on a daily basis). Car is completely rust-free and is an excellent driver (it is a good candidate for a restoration as well). VIN: 3F03H 187xxx

Condition:
Excellent, daily driver. Mechanicals are all excellent. Body has been resprayed in red metalflake in 2014 (Ford Molten Orange Tricoat). Interior is in fair condition and needs front new upholstery. Convertible top was replaced in 2018. The car has high-mileage (330K), but is incredibly solid, has no rust, or any mechanical issues.

Specifications:
make: Ford
model: Mustang
year: 1973
body: convertible
color: red (re-sprayed in 2014 in Ford Molten Orange Tricoat)
engine: 351 Cleveland (rebuilt in 2012)
transmission: Ford AOD (installed/rebuilt in 2012)
factory options: power steering, power brakes (front disc), tilt steering wheel, side racing mirrors, A/C (non-working)
mileage: 300K

I have since put a good deal of maintenance, replacements, and improvements into the car--as follows:

Suspension:
  • American Racing AR-23 Cast Aluminum wheels
  • Yokohama AVID ENVigor 205/65R15 tires
  • front coil springs and shock absorbers
  • rear leaf springs and shock absorbers
  • front and rear anti-sway bars
  • shock tower export braces
  • vented front rotors

Engine:
  • 4-bbl Holley carburetor
  • Edlebrock Performer intake manifold
  • Pertronix Ignitor electronic ignition and Flame-Thrower coil
  • 9mm ignition wires
  • Ford Racing cast aluminum can covers
  • Ford Racing 14” air filter
  • Canton windage tray
  • custom 2.25” dual exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers and X-crossover
  • rebuilt radiator
  • oil pan
  • Ford Racing hi-torque starter motor

Transmission/Drivetrain:
  • Ford AOD (4-speed from a 1993 Mercury Marquis)
  • Trick Flow finned aluminum transmission pan
  • ATF cooler
  • TransGo shift kit
  • B&M torque converter
  • pinion gear and differential bearings

Body & Interior:
  • new metalflake paint (Ford Molten Orange Tricoat)
  • Scott Drake body panels (left and right front fenders, trunk floor)
  • Mach 1 ‘honeycomb’ grills (front & rear)
  • Mach 1 pop-open gas cap
Additional/extra items:
  • Rally Pac center instrument gauges & bezel (OEM)
  • windshield wiper delay switch (OEM)
  • Monte Carlo Bar (front suspension)
  • halogen headlamps
  • stripe decals & badges
  • white tonneau cover (OEM)
Following is a list of known issues. All are minor and none affect drivability:
  • clock (not working)
  • top switch (missing knob)
  • fuel gauge dashboard light (not working)
  • steering wheel center trim (cracked)
  • front seats/door panels (need replacement)
  • steering column collar
  • dashboard/console chrome
  • seat backs (need adjustment)
  • factory A/C (needs conversion to R134)
  • hood metal flaw (factory)
  • decals & badges (need to be applied)
