The first generation of the venerable Ford Mustang is considered the most important, desired, and coveted because it was the car that kicked off an entire segment in the industry, called the Pony Car. Of course, there were special variants of the Mustang, such as the Mach 1, and what we've got here is a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1, which represents the last year of production for the first generation. With 32,000 miles on the odometer, it's clearly a light runner that's got plenty of life left in it.
The second-generation Mustang II is considered tame in comparison to the styling of the first generation, and this 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 proudly showcases the sum total of all facelifts and minor enhancements that Ford endowed upon their Pony each year. Sporting a dark blue exterior, there's so much to appreciate on this 'Stang, from its mean front face sporting amber fog lamps to the lithe and muscular sides, to the recognizable rear profile with a thin, almost dainty rear spoiler. BF Goodrich tires on polished rims complete the muscle car look, and you can practically see yourself leaving a cloud of smoke, Steve McQueen-style, as you peel out in this stunner, slatted rear window and all disappearing into the sunset. The redone black interior is in great condition with leather-trimmed seating for four, and all period accoutrements present and correct. You'll notice an aftermarket rev counter and a thicker-spoked steering wheel as some additions. Else, this Mustang retains a period-looking push-button radio and ventilation system control sliders; however, the owner tells us that it's indeed Bluetooth-compatible. Even the windows are powered by your muscles as you wind them up and down. Pop the trunk, and there's a spare wheel, along with decent luggage capacity for a muscle car.
This 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is reportedly powered by a 351ci Cleveland V8 rated by Ford for 266hp and 301lb-ft in this four-barrel carburetor format. A three-speed automatic transmission handles shifting duties, and drive is, as you'd expect, to the rear wheels. Front disc and rear drum brakes constitute the stopping power on offer.
