Vehicle Description

As the last of the muscle Mustangs, this 1973 Mach 1 has some pretty big shoes to fill. Fortunately, it scores on every front, from a cool color combination to a powerful 351C Cobra Jet V8 powerplant to options like factory A/C. Nice, right? Code 6F on the trim tag means that the Gold Glow finish on this car is how it left the factory. It was uncommon back in 1973 and very rare today, but as we've seen, this particular hue is very much back in the spotlight. With this car's great pedigree, they wisely invested heavily in making the bodywork straight before that unique paint went on. It's not perfect, but man does this pony look great going down the road. Dig the sharp body line that lances through the front fenders and doors, something that only looks good when everything lines up just right. The Ram Air hood was given a correct black stripe, along with matching Mach 1 stripes and graphics along the lower edges of the body. 1973 Mustangs also received color-matched front bumpers that give it a sleek look that works well with the already popular rear wing and honeycomb rear fascia. With a brilliant shine and a just-right 1970s vibe, this slick pony was Ford's last bit of performance for a decade, but it sure went out with a bang! The Medium Ginger color shade inside sticks to the original script, with high-back buckets, a center console, and a few wood accents that remind us that the Mach 1 was designed as a grand tourer to appeal to an upscale clientele. The seats, door panels, and carpets are in great shape, the gauges are all-stock (including that super-cool clock in the console), and the black-rimmed steering wheel and Hurst T-handle shifter adds some aggressiveness to the monochromatic interior. Factory A/C is a wonderful find in a muscle Mustang like this (although it does need to be serviced), suggesting that the original owner knew he was buying something special, and the original AM radio was swapped in favor of a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/iPod compatible head unit that rests in the center of the dash. The "flatback" Mustangs have impressive storage space, especially with a fold-down rear seat and a spacious trunk, which has been nicely detailed with black paint. Pop the Ram Air hood and you'll find this car's believed-original Q-code 351C Cobra Jet V8, which in 1973 still had some teeth at 266 horsepower. The Cleveland V8 topped with a 4-barrel was the top engine option in '73 and it has the kind of torque that reminds us that nothing pulls like eight cylinders at work. Aside from the dusty aftermarket air cleaner up top, the engine is fairly tidy, featuring Ford Blue valve covers, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and intake, and that big A/C compressor. Turn the key and it barks to life through a reproduction dual exhaust system, and as long as you're under there looking around, not how solid the floors are, albeit not detailed for show. The 4-speed manual transmission is an absolute blast and more than up to the task of channeling the 351's torque and there's a 9-inch rear with 3.73 gears out back. 17-inch Ridler wheels provide a more modern look and carry 235/15/17 Kelly performance radials. A solid car that has plenty of pop in the motor controlled by a thrill-seeking 4-speed, this Mustang Mach 1 is an affordable investment that makes a lot of sense. 1973 models were really "The Last of the Mohicans", making this pony that much more special.
