 Vehicle Description
This original survivor is in amazing condition considering it is original. It can easily serve as a benchmark for all factory correct 1973 Mustang restorations. The person we purchased the car from bought it in 2012 with 7,332 miles (marked actual on the title). He did some basic service and drove the car almost 2,000 miles. It functions like a new car too. Original virgin body, factory paint, pristine original interior.br/br/ EXTERIOR: No hit, no rust virgin body. When someone tells me the car is all original paint Im usually a nonbeliever. I just crawled around this car with my flashlight inspecting for any signs of overspray or tape lines. I found absolutely zero sign of any paint work. My shop agrees. Typically when you do find original paint cars they have garage scrapes and dents. This car is straight down both sides. It actually has a glossy finish. You would think the front rubber bumper would have bumped into something by now and be cracked up, other than a few little chips it is excellent. Any chrome, stainless, emblems are excellent. The rear panel, taillights, gas cap look new still. Original windshield and windows are crystal clear. The door jambs are excellent. Has original weather strips, still soft and theyre not cracked up. There are Factory ink stamps still on the paint. The sill plates are not even scuffed. The power white top is believed to be original, it still has a paper inspection sticker dated 1973 on the frame. The top is real nice, has one small slice. It originally came with hubcaps which we have. It now has the optional slotted aluminum mags with new tires. Has sport mirrors.br/br/ INTERIOR: You could package this interior and sell it as new. It is not worn or faded. The cushions are still firm, seat belts are mint. The dash area especially looks brand new. The little bit of chrome around all the gauges and bezels still shines, the gauges are not faded at all, lenses are crystal clear. The vents, knobs, steering wheel are mint. Has original AM radio. Cigarette lighter hasnt been used. Interior lights work, glove box light works and its like new inside. Even the plastic knobs on the window cranks are still crystal clear, not yellowed. Wow, I just rolled up the drivers window and it rolls up ridiculously easy and smooth.br/br/ ENGINE COMPARTMENT: I am so impressed to see this original engine compartment in such good condition. The light works under the hood and other than a new coil and battery it appears to be all original. Has factory paint markings, stickers, hose clamps etc. Everything still has its original finishes in exceptional condirion. Fender bolts are cadmium plated. The air cleaner still has all the ductwork and vacuum lines attached to it. The air conditioning was serviced with R12, it blows ice cold. It features power steering and power brakes and a 351 Cleveland big block with a two-barrel carburetor. Inside the distributor is also converted from points to electronic ignition.br/br/ TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very impressive. The light works, the gray spatter finish is the original from the factory and its nearly pristine. All the wiring, nuts, bolts, latches are in excellent original condition. The original spare may never have been in the ground, it still has the ink stamps on the tread. Original Jack is still in place. Original weatherstrip is still excellent, has original jacking instructions sticker.br/br/ UNDERSIDE: It is really well preserved. You can still see assembly line paint markings on the suspension, rear end and driveshaft. The floors, frame rails, inner rockers, lower inner 1/4s are pristine metal. Every seam, spotweld is crisp. Of course there is a haze of surface rust on suspension parts, nuts and bolts. THERE IS NO ROT. Up front the bushings still look good, has disc brakes. Bottom of motor is clean. Trans is the heavy duty C-6 automatic. Recently it did have the shocks replaced and it was given a new dual exhaust system. It had its original exhaust until 2013.br/br/ Sometimes you can find grandmas 6 cylinder Buick four door with low miles but a Mustang convertible? Never. I have been doing this my whole life and I am amazed to see a Mustang convertible as original in such good condition as this one. Trust me, this is a chance of a lifetime to own an incredibly rare car. If you want to carefully enjoy using the car it will function like new. If you want to take it to Mustang concourse you will be given top honors and really impress the judges. They are only original once, you will have bragging rights with this car!br/br/ I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now.
