Lot #203 - This rare one-of-one optioned 1973 Mustang convertible as verified by the Elite Marti Report was built in Dearborn. This Mustang has been well cared for by two families with 74,653 original miles and provenance, including an extensive collection of factory documents. The Mustang recently completed a lengthy meticulous restoration to bring the car to its very high-quality condition of the hard-to-find convertible. Repainted in its original brilliant light-blue hue with original "Factory Packed" acrylic enamel, it's contrasted with a newly reupholstered white vinyl bucket seat interior and matching white top. The professional restoration completed by an auto restorer with over 35 years experience displays excellent bodywork, paint, detailed engine bay and interior. The interior compartment features brilliant white vinyl bucket seats, a console with an automatic shifter, an AM/FM stereo, convenience group option, front and rear seat belts and a power top. The body and paint finish is of a very high quality and the front spoiler, black NASA Ram Air hood and side stripes lend to a muscular appearance. Some of the options include an AM/FM stereo, 3-speed automatic transmission, 302 V8 engine, console, power steering, convenience group, heavy-duty battery, and trim rings with hubcaps. The Mustang convertible's provenance includes an extensive collection of all-original Ford factory documents and extras. The original Ford factory documents include the owner's manual, AM/FM stereo operating manual, emissions booklet, warranty card, warranty facts booklet and consumer information sheet, along with the Elite Marti Report that documents the car's options and rare one-of-one status. The Mustang convertible retains its matching-numbers original stock 302ci V8 motor detailed in the restoration down to its original paint markings with dual exhaust added for performance and muscle car sound. Everything on the garage-kept Mustang functions appropriately and is an exhilarating drive. This rare one-of-one, professionally restored 1973 light-blue Mustang convertible is truly an excellent car.
