Ready To Restore 1972 Mustang Mach 1

Up for sale is a blue, numbers matching 1972 Mustang Mach 1 with 79,000 miles on it. It is located in Waterloo, Ontario at a respectable price of $6,995, although it doesn’t distinguish if that is American or Canadian dollars. Thank you to Simon P. for the tip. More information about the car can be found here to Kijiji.

Sitting in the engine bay, but not specified as running or not, is a 351 cubic inch, four-barrel Cleveland V8 connected to a 4-speed manual transmission. The listing also states the car has a 9-inch rear end. While it looks somewhat decent from the photos, the listing is honest enough to point out that there are some rust spots fenders.

The blue interior has seen better days, but it does look quite sporty and when new, probably looked absolutely fantastic. As is common with cars stored for long periods of time, 30 years in this cars case, there is a lot of rubbish that has piled up inside. There is no shortage of rubbish piled up on the outside either. The listing states that the driver side floor panel needs to be replaced. The rear seat folds down, which is a cool option.

According to the listing, spare parts go along with the car, for an additional price. Those items include a new carpet, headliner, floor panel, trim pieces, and a host of other items. The seller also states they have an extra gallon of the original paint color. This car would be a perfect project car and is a great price.

    Pictures please–says has some rust well lets see it. if its 6995 Canadian, you could get a deal. Good luck to the new owner.

      The trunk has rust through, probably from leaking rear window seal. I’d have to assume the floorpan is the same.

    The ad states this car’s motor runs and it had head work before it was stored. It needs some rust repair but doesn’t seem terminal. A good candidate for restoration and the price seems OK. Can’t tell if it’s got A/C but it’s got a four speed and the Cleveland is a great motor with the option to really make it run with aftermarket goodies. The only thing I’d change are the Cragers as I never cared for them.

    Seller also has a ’73 Fastback.

    Seller, if you’re going to mention rust or any other visible issues with the car then please show them. Since $8,195 (car and parts) Canadian is roughly $6,100 US dollars, that seems like a potential bargain to me if someone was close enough to drive and pick the car and parts up in one trip.

    Price appears to be fair. The gray-blue/ blue combination is sharp and isn’t commonly seen. Doesn’t seem like manual transmissions in the 71-73 Mustangs are often seen. I hope it goes to a new owner who will get the car back in shape. I would be drawn to it if it was at a show.

    That “351 four-barrel Cleveland” is the Q-code engine, also known as the 351 Cobra Jet. Very rare in ’73.
