1973 Ford Mustang Convertible — The 1973 Mustang was the last of the "classic" Mustangs, and the last Ford convertible for many years. This Mustang is white, with the Ginger interior and 250cid, 6-cylinder engine. In 1973, this engine produced about 88 horsepower, not a lot of ponies in this Mustang, but the payoff is close to 20mpg!

Pros

Historical value, breathtaking sounds, beautiful styling, quick handling, and rapid acceleration

Not the most powerful Mustang engine, alternator sucked, no vapor lock system

My First Car — I learned how to work on cars with the Mustang, doing tune-ups and maintaining a clean running engine and clean bodywork. The 302 V8 engine emitted the sweetest of engine sounds, provided the starter solenoid, carburetor, spark plugs, battery, transmission, and alternator were replaced.

1973 Mustang Convertible — My dad's car that he bought new in March of 1973. It's in great shape with 43,000 original miles. Once you drive a convertible, you don't want to go back to a hard top.

Bring Your Ricers — this car was originally bought as a fixer upper. the paint is nothing fancy and has been painted flat black on the bottom half due to bad paint. this car is an absolute blast to drive, a real headturner, and really really loud. extremely fast although the speedometer does not work. it has been turned into a fun car, it is not show quality condition body wise, but the drivetrain modifications are vast and extensive. it runs absolutely amazing when tuned correctly, but the carb seems to be streaky at times

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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
