Today’s featured vehicle is a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1. Nine years after the original Mustang broke cover, 1973 marked the final year for the first generation of Ford’s pony car. The model year brought along still more increases in size and weight due to federal safety regulations: specifically, four inches and 50 pounds thanks to a 5-mph bumper up front and a 2.5-mph one out back. 1973 also was the last model year Ford offered a Mustang convertible, until the drop-top returned for 1983.
This particular Mach 1 belongs to Jean Domenech, a reader and Mustang aficionado from France.
