Used 1973 Ford Mustang 6,083 miles, Green
Offered for sale by the California Automobile Museum This Beautiful 1973 Mustang Convertible is a real Hot Rod Sleeper. It has been completely redone in a BOSS 351 Theme. It appears stock on the outside but under the hood is definitely not stock with the claimed 475 HORSEPOWER 351 cu. in. Cleveland V8. Exterior The exterior of this gorgeous Mustang is in superb condition and has been garaged since it was redone. It had its factory hood replaced with a Ram Air hood to give it a more distinct appearance. There are a few small blemishes on the paint that I can find. 1 appears to be a clear coat imperfection on the front bumper (pictured), There is a light scratch just forward of the trunk lid (pictured) that quite possibly can be buffed out, and the last spot is a small chip in the paint on the left edge of the trunk lid itself (pictured). The front and rear spoiler are both painted black, the rear spoiler looks to have some possible shrinkage in the paint (pictured). The Magnum 500 wheels are scuff free and have a nice shine to them, but could use a thorough cleaning to really make them stand out. The convertible top is in attractive shape, it fits well and is nice and tight. It has been mostly stored with the top in the down position so if there is any fading I cant tell. The rear window is clean and clear. All of the glass is intact and clear. The hood needs some slight adjustment to align it perfectly. Interior The interior of this Mustang is very nice and is done in the factory Avocado vinyl and Light Avacado comfortweave pattern. The seats are comfortable and are not worn. The carpeting is in terrific shape as well. The dashboard is complete with all the factory gauges. There have also been some added AutoMeter guages installed and those include a 3 3/4in Sport Comp tachometer with programmable shift light mounted on the steering column and 2 5/8in Sport Comp water, oil pressure and voltmeter gauges mounted on the transmission tunnel. The dashboard is in good condition and does not have any cracks. There is a Kenwood Compact disc player in the dash with a six disc changer in the trunk. Kenwood speakers are installed in the door panels. There is a rip in the trim molding just behind the drivers seat where you would enter into the back seat (pictured). Mechanical This Mustang drives well and is mechanically in terrific shape. It drives straight down the road with out any odd noises or vibrations to speak of. The transmission shifts as it is supposed to. It has a high stall torque converter and many added engine hop ups that include a blue printed engine, Super Comp headers and roller rockers under the Ford Racing valve covers. Fuel delivery is done via what looks to be a 750 Mighty Demon four barrel Demon Carburetor (based on internet comparisons), a Edelbrock 351 Torker intake manifold and a Edelbrock air cleaner.
