With its restoration completed not long ago and featuring an ideal, ultra-appealing color combo, this 1972 Ford Mustang Fastback is a magnetic classic that holds the promise of many future fun filled miles. It's ready for action just as soon as you get it home and comes at an attainable price.
The high impact exterior was refurbished to factory specs just a few years back, so it really presents well. The paint it wears is reminiscent of the medium coral offering on the Ford color chart the year this '72 came out, so you can sense a strong authenticity when you give it a good once-over and, though it offers a very pleasing shine in its present state, a thorough detailing session would take things to an even higher level. The array of black decal striping over the scooped hood and along the sides is in great shape, showing a nice, deep black color and razor sharp edges, and it - along with the black front air dam and rear spoiler - contrasts nicely with such a bright backdrop. With the exception of the front and rear bumpers, which appear to have been recently replaced, the remainder of the exterior trim is likely original but looks solid. The stance on this Pony is awesome: just a little lower than stock with a subtle incline showcasing the dominant fastback rear roofline.
Climb inside and you'll be surrounded by a sharp interior - it was restored even more recently than the exterior and really looks the part. The high-backed buckets sit between a contrasting black center console and show no perceptible wear, and pretty much everything that surrounds them is equally fresh, including the headliner, dash pad and door panels. A compact aftermarket steering wheel sits on the column, while just beyond it the dash is also in great shape, harboring an assortment of clear and functional factory gauges that are joined by a trio of factory counterparts just below an AM/FM/CD stereo seamlessly installed in place of the original. An aftermarket tach is now perched on the steering column to monitor RPMs during more spirited driving. Because Mustangs of this vintage featured fairly sizable cockpits, you'll find plenty of room on hand for your backseat passengers and the bench seat they'll ride on is in showroom condition. With no fabric lining the floor of the trunk area, you can get a good view inside and see that the floor and inner fenders are very solid.
Below that scooped hood you'll find a 302 cubic inch V8 resting between the shock towers, wearing an aftermarket triangular air cleaner over its Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and performance intake manifold and looking nicely detailed. The entire contents of the engine compartment received a thorough going-over not long ago and everything is still very clean. The distributor, along with the rest of the ignition system, was upgraded, so the powerplant benefits from a nice, strong spark and pairs with a 3-speed automatic C4 transmission that's shifting smoothly. The factory power steering on this Mustang is also in good working order, so this car is an easy navigator, and power brakes that feature discs up front bring it to dependable, fade free stops. 15” Magnum 500-style wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich T/A radials add just the right finishing touch. Below, the undercarriage appears to have been thoroughly cleaned and treated during the restoration process and is looking fresh and straight.
In great shape both inside and out and running in top form, this 1972 Ford Mustang Fastback is a definite “must see” for any classic Ford enthusiast. Call today.
