Green Pony For Only A Little Green!

Barn Finds reader Eric B. writes: If it were white it would be the clone of the first Mustang I had, right down to the split in the drivers seat. No pics of the engine compartment bug me but it seems inspection worthy. I have to agree with Eric–this seems like a pretty nice car. It’s for sale here on craigslist for $6,500 in Lincoln, Rhode Island.

This may be the ’71-’73 convertible’s nicest angle. Apart from the funky bumper guards on the rear, I don’t think I’d change much on this car’s styling, even if I had a magic pen. The green and white offset each other nicely, and the Magnum 500 wheels are perfect. There are a few scrapes and bruises on the paintwork, but nothing that scares me too much.

The top is only a year old, and the seller tells us it “runs, drives shifts and looks Grrreat!” Tires are in good shape as well, and the exhaust is only three years old. The paint is a repaint, but is the original color. I don’t see any rust and none is mentioned by the seller.

I wish I could show you what the engine looks like; the ad states it’s the original 302 V8 with a two barrel carburetor, and despite 144,000 miles the seller doesn’t say anything bad about it. I just wish they had taken the time to open the hood and take a picture of it! Considering the number of pictures in the ad, I don’t think one under hood and one “in the trunk” shot would be too much to ask!

Here’s the interior that Eric B. wrote about. It does look pretty nice for 144,000 miles, and you can actually get new white seat covers like these for just under $300. I have to admit, though, that I’m not sure I’d keep the white seats; I might take the opportunity to go with a color that would show dirt less. What would you do? This seems like a pretty darned nice green pony for not a lot of green!

    two different plates is odd, but a nice car overall!

    before and after pictures hence two plates. not only did that change but the dent in the right rear seems to have been added since it was moved to RI from MA. But a nice car and i would keep the white interior, and keep it clean.

    Keep the original white seats, just throw some seat covers on it for safety, then show off your nice white seats at the car shows.

    $6,500 or less? That’s a steal for a ragtop.

    $6500.00 – what’s the catch, is that a down payment ? Sounds to cheap for what I’m looking at, that’s a beautiful Mustang for just $6500.00 bucks and a convertible too? Wow!
