The 1973 Ford Mustang convertible is a pretty significant car

It’s the last year for the first generation, and this would be the last time for a drop-top pony car for a whole decade. So to find one that has a nice mix of vintage and well-coordinated sporty style makes for an attractive classic.

The copper brown metallic paint has the right look for this car. It’s on an actual miles title, and so you want a period-correct look hue. At the same time, the low mileage suggests a respected car, and so it also has a good glow in the sunshine that’s essential to a quality convertible. There are some sporty additions, like the deep chin spoiler and the full-width rear spoiler. These dark pieces combine with the nice-looking black convertible top to give this pony car an almost two-tone style. Good body panels, good chrome, and upgraded mag-style wheels complete a solid classic cruiser package.

If you like the look of the black roof against the brown paint, then with a flip of a switch, you’ll be excited to power the top down and reveal the full black interior. Not only does the upholstery have a nice deep tone, but also you’ll notice the cloth insert – always a bonus when a convertible has been open to the world. There are provisions for some nice options, including air conditioning, and you can invest to get them back to full function. But from day one you can really understand this Mustang’s appeal. High-back front bucket seats, an armrest center console, and a dual-spoke steering wheel with a clear view of the gauges all make for a driver’s machine.

Under the hood is a very correct-style presentation. It looks great with investment in the bold blue paint on the motor and factory-style decals. So it really looks like the right powerhouse for a low mileage machine. A convertible like this was built to be a true cruiser. That’s why the 302 cubic-inch V8 fires up nicely and runs well. You also have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front. And those Copper Cobras tires have the cool raised white letter look and a wide tread for good grip.
