1973 Ford Mustang Mach1 Q code Additional Info:

Two owner time-capsul!! Original condition with original miles!!
This 1973 Mach1was owned by the same family for more than 40 years. The second owner has only had it for the last couple of years and has taken loving care of this original example. This car is a trip down memory lane in every respect. It gets TONS of Attention everywhere it goes. The car has original miles and original paint & equipment too! It is an excellent driver and everything works. This example was ordered with the optional and desirable Q code 4-barrel 5.8L 351 Cleveland that made 266 bhp and 301 lb-ft of torque. This car starts easily and is very easy to drive with an automatic transmission as well as power steering. The motor feels very strong and makes a great V8 sound! Although everything is original it is not to say that this is museum piece. The "Medium Bright Yellow" paint is starting to show its age with a few flaws appearing in the roof (see the photos). The interior however, has held up astonishingly well and belies its' age. This car is absolutely ready to be driven!
More on the Mustang Mach1:

In 1973, the front bumper was enlarged in accordance with newNHTSA standards, and all Mustang models had their sportlamps changed to a vertical orientation at each end of the grill. As the new bumper covered part of the front valance (and therefore the previous turn signal location), the sportlamps also served as turn signals. Both a Mach 1 and base grille were offered, with differing insert patterns.

The rear bumper was also mounted on new impact-absorbing extensions which caused the bumper to protrude from the body further than before, and the 1973 Mach 1 graphics were also updated. Engine options remained the same as in 1972.

Due to trouble getting the Ram Air option approved for emissions reasons,Ford offered an 'exterior decor' option in 1973 that consisted of the two-tone hood treatment, but without the actual functional components of the Ram Air system. Actual engine options available with Ram Air in 1973 were limited to the 351 2V, even though the 351 4V 'Cobra Jet' (without Ram Air) remained optional on every model.
