Lot 131 - 1973 Ford Mustang V8 Convertible
- Presented in very good condition throughout
- Desirable colour combination
- Automatic gearbox
The secret of the Mustang's success was a broad appeal that extended beyond the target market thanks to a great value-for-money package combining sporty looks, decent economy and brisk performance. Mustangs could be ordered in specifications ranging from six-cylinder 'economy' to V8-powered luxury, while customers could choose from an extensive range of factory options, with the result that seldom are two Mustangs identical. The Mustang was enlarged and restyled for 1969 and again for 1971, the latter revamp resulting in a car lower, longer and wider than before. The next Mustang, introduced for 1974, would be a much smaller car with no convertible option.
This particular 1973 convertible is fitted with a V8 engine which is coupled to an automatic gearbox. In very good condition, this Mustang presents very well indeed, the paintwork retains a deep shine and the chromework is bright. The interior is also in very good order and shows little sign of age. The car is accompanied by a history file containing sundry invoices, old MoT test certificates and the current V5C registration document. This is a very well-presented Ford Mustang which is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.
