Low Priced 1973 Ford Mustang

Hopefully, better days are ahead for this 1973 Ford Mustang. The car is currently located in Oro Grande, California but had been found in a building in Arizona. Mileage is unlisted, some part, of the VIN is listed, maybe. A clear title is listed, but everything in the listing is hard to decipher for the facts. Currently, the price sits at $102.50 with two bids and no reserve. You can view more here on eBay.

Part of the issue regarding the facts is the lack of photo evidence to back up anything listed. No photos are shown of the engine. However, they aren’t really needed considering the listing says that currently, the car does not have an engine or transmission in it. The seller claims they will provide a 351 Cleveland with an automatic transmission for an additional $500 more, but they will not be putting it in the car.

There are no photos of the interior and that is where things need proof of what is claimed in the listing. The seller states the car is rare because it is a Grande and has Luxury Cougar interior. They state that there is Factory Ford power windows installed originally but are currently no longer in the car. With no photographs, it is hard to take any of the claimed information in the listing as believable.

The photos of the exterior show a worn out body and faded paint. There does not seem to be a whole lot of rust. In the listing, they state that there is a rough patch at the bottom of one of the rear quarter panels. Some trim pieces are missing based on the photos and the car’s interior is stuffed with something unless that is the headliner. For the price, unless it goes much higher, it isn’t so bad at the moment.

    From the ad “There appears to have been Factory Ford power windows installed but has since been removed. An exceptionally rare factory option!”

    I love when things that are not there are a selling point.

    Ads that say things like “All original 1969 Z28” but are missing the entire drive train- No sir, you have a 1969 Camaro for sale. The drive train is what makes that car. I get the data tag…blah blah blah but really it’s just a Camaro at that point.

      So, in other words, he robbed the power windows, and is selling the rest.

    Good shell for a custom. These Mustangs are one year only on almost everything, if a guy had a rusty but complete car to transfer to the parts to Arizona body. Maybe if that ONE guy see’s it on Ebay…

    I don’t understand all the doubt about the seller’s claims. This stuff can be verified through the vin#, buck tag, Marti report, etc.. One thing is for sure, it had a vinyl roof; so it was very likely a Grande. To me it looks like a nice starting point for a project that would be well worth the effort in the end.
