This 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Is One Of The Last Classic Mustangs Worth Buying

This 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Is One Of The Last Classic Mustangs Worth Buying

There’s more to this 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 than meets the eye, and it could be the attainable American classic you are looking for

If you are a muscle car enthusiast, you probably know that around the mid-1970s, things went really bad for those of us looking for big power and performance. The oil crisis meant gas was expensive and American carmakers were forced to take their big V-8s and neuter them. The 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is one of the cars that got the worst of it. Despite having a 351 Cleveland under the hood, the most powerful version of the 1973 Mustang Mach 1 made 285 horsepower. But that doesn’t mean this 1973 example should be overlooked, especially when it has been fully restored and is currently listed for a reasonable price.

The 1969 Ford Mustang BOSS 520 Was The Ultimate Mustang

The 1969 Ford Mustang BOSS 520 Was The Ultimate Mustang

The forgotten Mustang BOSS 520 was a track weapon from the 1960s that never went racing

The legacy of the Ford Mustang dates back to 1962 with the Ford Mustang I concept car. Since then, we have gotten many iconic interpretations of the car, including high-performance variants like the Shelby GT350, GT500, BOSS 302, and the BOSS 429, which is considered to be the ultimate ’Stang. The BOSS 429, itself, was the basis for other interesting projects such as the mid-engine Ford Mustang LID, but there was another, more conventional version that, sort of, made it - the Mustang BOSS 520.

These Are the Most Powerful Three-Cylinder Engines in New Cars

These Are the Most Powerful Three-Cylinder Engines in New Cars

As it turns out, cars with three-cylinder engines can be pretty fun to drive!

Gone are the days when three-cylinder engines were only meant for urban commutes. These engines were light and focused more on fuel efficiency than performance. However, things are changing, and with upsizing not an option anymore, thanks to stricter emission regulations, automakers are making the best they can with fewer cylinders and lower displacements. Companies don’t just offer them with forced induction now; they even pair them with electric motors and batteries to generate all the oomph possible. Believe it or not, there are a handful of high-performance three-cylinder engines that can blow larger engines out of the water.

The Ford Mustang GT is a subject of affection for many tuners and custom shops.

A New Ford Thunderbird Could Serve As a Direct Rival to the Chevy C8 Corvette

A New Ford Thunderbird Could Serve As a Direct Rival to the Chevy C8 Corvette

Can Ford really offer a new sports car that is not the GT?

Ford Thunderbird (or the T-bird) was announced for the first time in 1953 as a direct competitor to the just launched – at that time - Chevrolet Corvette. In just a year it went from an idea to a prototype and was unveiled to the public during the 1954 Detroit Auto Show. Sales started shortly after for the 1955 model year. The Thunderbird was produced without interruption for ten generations - from 1955 to 1997, then discontinued until it was brought back to life in 2002. However, the eleventh generation was produced only for 3 years, so in 2005 the name was discontinued again.

The Shelby GT500-H Is a 900-Horsepower Special You Can Rent by the Day

Why buy a 900-HP Mustang Shelby when you can rent one from Hertz?

Shelby and Hertz. That’s a very bizarre collaboration, if you think of it. These two companies have teamed up and come up with two special vehicles – the Mustang Shelby GT500-H and the Mustang Shelby GT-H. If this tag-team raised your eyebrows, well, there’s some more surprising news. This isn’t the first time they’ve collaborated to create special rental cars. Their friendship dates back to 1966 when Shelby and Hertz created the GT350-H and the latter offered it to the public via a special program called ‘Rent-a-Racer’. That’s some history lesson for the day, huh?

An Early S197 Ford Mustang GT Desperately Tried To Close The Performance Gap Between Itself And America’s Best Sports Cars

This 4.6-liter all-motor Ford Mustang GT wants to be as quick as a modern Mustang GT as it challenges a C5 Corvette and a Dodge Viper GTS

The fifth-generation Ford Mustang is not the most admired American car. Granted, it was the first modern American car (after the Ford Thunderbird) to introduce the retro-futuristic design, but its 4.6-liter DOHC, three-valve V-8, although based on proven technology, left something to be desired on the performance front. Over the past few years, YouTuber Four Eyes has set out to turn a 2007 Ford Mustang GT into a proper performance machine – one that can run with Corvettes, modern Mustangs, and even Vipers.

This Footage Of Pure Stock Drags From The 1980s Between Old-School Muscle Cars Sure Will Strum Your Nostalgia Strings

This face-off saw the legendary ’68 Shelby GT500 take on a ’72 Firebird Trans Am 455 H.O

While pure stock drag racing remains a popular class to this day, here’s taking a look at what it was like gunning it down the drag strip back in the 80s.

This video with its grainy lines and off-beat commentary, about two of the greatest names amongst muscle cars going head to head, sure does ring the nostalgia bell pretty hard. Strangely, the video has the correct aspect ratio of 16:9 rather than the 4:3 which was the norm back then.

This 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 is the Pinnacle of Collectability

This 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 is the Pinnacle of Collectability

This Mustang went under the digital hammer once and failed to sell, will it change owners this time around?

Outside of, say, the Shelby GT500, the Mustang Boss 429 – offered between 1969 and 1970 – is, arguably, the most desirable Mustangs on the planet. The 385-based 429 engine plays a big role in that status, but that’s only a part of what makes this specific car special. Wearing chassis stamp 0F02z109085 and Kar Kraft serial number KK2131, this Boss 429 is in pristine condition and still has the original engine under the hood.

This 1967 Ford Mustang Could be the Perfect Restoration Project

This 1967 Ford Mustang Could be the Perfect Restoration Project

Despite needing some repairs, this Mustang has certainly withstood the test of time

Mustangs, especially of the classic variety are a hot ticket item for both collectors and those looking to start a new restoration project. Rarely do these two worlds collide, though, as we’re talking about two very different types of people….and vehicles. The 1967 Ford Mustang that we’re talking about today, however, might have some appeal to both sides because, while it might need some repairs here and there, it certainly looks as if it has withstood the test of time better than most cars left abandoned to rot in a garage.
