AutoHunter Spotlight: 1973 Ford Mustang

The last of the classic Mustangs is a fun car that deserves respect


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by, is this 1973 Ford Mustang.

Now I know that some of you know me and the cars I like, so you may be surprised that I picked a 1973 Mustang. Well I honestly like the luxury Mustang and have ever since seeing Diamonds are Forever. Sure, that was a Mach 1 but these are nice driving cars and offer plenty of power, and I honestly think that the styling has really aged well. In addition these are the most comfortable to drive classic Mustangs.

The seller offering this car up for auction describes it as a Mustang that has only covered 19,321 original miles and has been with the current owner for 24 years. It is equipped with its reportedly original 302cid V8 and three-speed automatic transmission.

Features include power steering, power front disc brakes, bucket seats, a center console, and air conditioning. Finished in Bright Red and equipped with a white vinyl top over a white vinyl interior, this Mustang comes on consignment from the selling dealer with a clear title.

The seller describes the paint as having been refinished in the original color of Bright Red (code 2B) in the late 1990s. Features on this Mustang include a color-keyed urethane front bumper, a black grille insert, side impact moldings, wheel well and rocker moldings, color-keyed sport mirror housings with a manual driver-side remote, a white vinyl top, a chrome rear bumper, and a black taillight panel insert.

The contrast that the interior offers agains the red paint is simply awesome. The front bucket seats and the rear seat are upholstered in white vinyl.

Features include power steering, manual windows, the great looking chrome center console-mounted automatic transmission shifter, air conditioning, white door panels and trim, and a black dashboard. The selling dealer states that the Kenwood AM/FM/cassette stereo was purchased new in 2010 and installing it did not require modifications to the dashboard.

These cars still trail the 1964 1/2-1970 Mustangs, and as a result offer the last great value in a classic Mustang. Having personally driven many Mustangs, from a 1965 GT350 to a 1973 Mach 1 and everything in between, these are enjoyable and comfortable cars that are fast enough to be fun. I mean james Bond drove a mach 1 so why not give this car a try.
