I Like The Car But If Between A Rock And The Hard Place It Would Be Easy To Send This One Away. — In 1973 these cars were low compression and as a result low on power. It is a fun reliable car to drive. Your experience behind the wheel is looking over a huge hood and no rear view window to speak of. On the road it rubles along and is an about average ride for a muscle car of that era.

Pros: Big car, good looks.

Cons: Not enough power from the factory.

Luxury Street Rod Anyone? — Supposed to be the 'luxury' version of the Mustang. The 302 is still a great engine to upgrade and I see these cars are beginning to get attention on Jackson Barrett and other auctions because for the most part they weren't owned by kids so they didn't get beat on or modified. Clean originals are out there but rare, since the rest of them got crushed at the end of their useful lives instead of being turned into street rods.

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

Pros: Fast, comfortable, nice looking car.

Cons: Maintenance nightmare.

Great Car — Loved the car, Old and kinda rough lookin but it was great. had lots of power, was very fast and handled like a dream. Repair costs were cheap since it was so old but it was still very reliable. It got roughly 5-7 Mpg. it needed basic repairs nothing too major. All in all Was VERY fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I liked everything about it.

Cons: Sucks its gone now... Wrecked it.. :(

Good Performance Car — This Mustang has a power plant transplant. The 351 Cu In Cleveland was replaced with a 429 Cu In. The performance of this car was exceptional. The car's styling always turned heads. The large engine completely filled the engine bay and heat related problems due to lack of fresh air ventilation plagued the electrical engine management systems.

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

Pros: Styling & performance

Cons: Fuel mileage interior noise

Great Toy!! — It still handles like if we were in 1973. Wherever I go with my son I always get thumbs up. Even the local police (CA) gets next to me to let me know that I have a great vehicle. Amen!!

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

Pros: Have to love the American muscle cars.

Cons: Can't drive it everyday.

Women Love Mustangs — I loved the roar of my 351 Cleveland, it had headman headers, and custom 2.5 " exhaust with an x-pipe, and bullet race mufflers. I also had 3:55 gears put in the car. Dam she sounded sweet! The car was all rusted out, it was a 15 footer otherwise overall value would have been a 5.

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

Pros: Pick up women

Cons: it had a lot of rust

Mach 1 — It has it's flaws. It's over 30 years old so it's understandable. It's got good power and terrible gas mileage as you can imagine lol. The pipes on this car are originals and still sound great. It'll wake the neighbors with ease lol. Original 351 Cleveland 5.8 V-8 monster. New everything pretty much. This car has had it's problems but overall it's been an amazing vehicle.

Pros: Performance

Cons: Gas mileage
