Classifind Cut: 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 23K Mile Survivor – $23,500
1973 turned out to be the tenth and final model year for Ford’s highly successful Mustang. However, by this time the car had grown in both size and weight while power was way down. The model that epitomized the power loss the most was the performance-oriented Mach 1. While the example currently listed here on Craigslist in Rahway, New Jersey features its original 351 cubic inch V8, it’s only the entry-level, two-barrel-topped, 156 horsepower version. Reported to be a 23K original mile survivor, the current caretaker is asking $23,500 for it. Comparing that price against the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool the seller’s ask falls between this guide’s #2 “Very Good” estimate of $21,900 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $32,400.
This all-gold example Mach 1 features a hood treatment exclusive to ’73 models. For this final model year, Ford offered a “Tu-Tone” hood paint treatment option that consisted of the Argent (flat black) paint treatment and twist locks, but without the actual functional components of the Ram Air system. This is a great-looking pony car that will likely get you compliments and more awards every time you enter it in a classic car show. If you are serious about buying this Mustang, you can start the conversation by calling Bill at (732) 381-6444. In the spirit of full transparency, while this is not a classic car dealer selling the car, the number is for an auto body shop, so we’re hopeful this is car is part of the owner’s personal collection and has the complete history of it. When you connect, please remember to mention you saw Bill’s Mach 1 featured here on GuysWithRides.com. Good luck with the purchase!
Here’s the seller’s brief description:
“Super clean and original mustang! Collector car condition! Less than 23 thousand original miles!”
