Here's To Power — How can you go wrong with a muscle mach 1? People would ask if this thing was for sale on a weekly basis. Motors built to about 430hp. And it just sounds like a beast, the whole car rumbles at idle. Easy to work on too.

Fairly rare as many seem to be attricted to the 60's model and the fastback

Cons

Fun, Power, Long, Built To Protect You — Fairly rare as many are more attracted to the 60's model. Feels stronger with more medal in the exterior... I was originally looking for the earlier model but after going to many car shows and seeing no mustangs in this year I was more attracted to it. I like the feeling of space in the car and being able to have someone in the backseat if needed.

Your Bottom-line On This Car — This was a great car, finally got a car with a V8 but was only a car for two. After about 2 years it started to rust around the rear tail lights. I got it all fixed up and got a beautiful paint job and then I started having trouble with the engine so I traded it in on a used station wagon.

I Love This Car And Owned It More Then 30 Years — good performance 351 c 4v it's old but you might not think so ,and it has great lines in the body it's not great on gas but performance in the 70's gas wasn't a issue. while driving this old beast you get plenty of thumbs up.

Wow — this is a great car, fun to drive, i like it a lot, but it little bit difficult to drive this car in my country, because in my place most of the street is very small, not big like in us, n also its overcrowded with many car n bike. so i use it only at night. lastly i'll give 5 stars for this car, its looooks sooo goooood

Best Mustang I've Ever Owned. By LAREDOTECH1

Fast And Cool By yankeezfan2012

Overall this car is a beast for the price and for what it is, 300 HP for a V6 you can't beat it, or the price. Ford has made some mistakes in the past, but this is not one of them. Read More
