Sellers original description:

Although The Condition Of This Beautiful '73 Mustang Convertible Truly Speaks For Itself It Also Has A Great Story To Go Along With It. A Gentleman From North Carolina Bought His First Mustang When He Was 20 Years Old Which He Got Because The Insurance Premiums On His '70 Dodge Charger Were A Little Beyond His Means. One Evening On His Way Home From Work He Spotted A Beautiful White '73 Mustang Convertible And Within A Week He Owned It. He Sold That Car For Several Years And Sold It In 1979 To Make A Down Payment On His First House. That's The Part Of The Story Where A Young Man And His Mustang Part Ways. But The Story Does Not End There. Twenty Years Later His Wife And He Returned Home From A Trip To Hawaii In Which She Had Spent Their Entire Life Savings. Feeling Guilty She Said To Her Husband, " Go Look For A Car That You Used To Have When You Were A Kid." Ahhhh, A Golden Opportunity! About Six Months Later He Found This Blue Convertible In Charlotte, Nc. He And His Wife Enjoyed Driving It And Their Oldest Son Learned To Drive In It. As They Put More And More Miles On It The Car Started To Look Its Age And Needed A Refreshing That Was Beyond His Capability. He Contacted The Mustang Club Of America And Was Given The Name Of A Top Notch Mustang Restoration Expert In His Area. In May, 2000 The Mustang Was Dropped Off At The Shop And Was Asked To Make It As Good As New. Well, Almost 6 Years Later The Restoration Was Complete. A Lot Had Happened In The Owners Life During Those 6 Years. His Beloved Wife Had Passed Away From Cancer, His Sons Both Graduated High School, And He Bought A Couple Other Mustangs To Fill The Void. Another Beautiful Woman Entered His Life And The Nut And Bolt Restored '73 Mustang Convertible Was Something That They Enjoyed Together. They Began Showing The Car In The Spring Of 2006. In 2012, This Blue Mustang Earned Enough Points To Be Awarded The Blue Grille Medallion At The Mustang Club Of America Show In Jacksonville, Fl. This Car Truly Became A Part Of Their Family And They Thought They Would Never Part With It. But, Things Happen In Life And The Time Had Come. They Sold Their Show Winning Beauty To A Close Friend In Virginia Who Thought He Would Carry On The Tradition. While He And His Wife Adored The Car They Found They Were Not The Show Going Classic Car Folks That This Car Needed. Again, Golden Opportunity.....for You!!! We Had This Beautiful Stallion Delivered Via Enclosed Trailer To Us Here In The Atlanta, Ga Area Recently And It Is Everything It Was Cracked Up To Be...and More!!! I Truly Believe That If We Could Turn Back The Clock To 1973, This Car Could Be On The Showroom Floor As A Brand New Car. Ok, To Be Fair, Mustang Experts Will Notice That They Did Not Make Grabber Blue In 1973. The Owner Decided To Change This Cars Original Color From Light Blue To The More Vibrant And Aggressive Grabber Blue Color And He Added The Mach 1 Trim Striping As Well. This Didn't Bother The Mustang Club Of America Judges Who Awarded This Pony First Place In Many Shows And I Think You Will Agree This Car Stands Out As A Result. Speaking Of Awards, The Gentleman Who Had The Car Restored Wanted To Keep The Trophies And Blue Grille Medallion For Sentimental Reasons But I Do Have Quite A Few Of The Judging Score Sheets From Many Of The Shows. Here Is A Short List Of This Cars Accomplishments:

May 2006 Johnson City Tn 2nd Place
Sept. 2006 Mca 30th Anniversary Judges Choice
April 2007 Pensacola, Fl 1st Place
August 2007 Augusta Ga Ist Place
March 2008 Pensacola Fl 1st Place
August 2008 Oakville, Canada 2nd Place
April 2009 Birmingham Al Show Class Winner
July 2009 Raleigh Nc 1st Place
June 2009 Indianapolis In 1st Place
June 2010 Mustang Oklahoma 1st Place
August 2010 Asheville Nc 2nd Place
April 2011 Mesquite Tx 3rd Place
June 2011 Long Island Ny 1st Place
March 2012 Pensacola Fl 1st Place And Awarded The Mca Grille Medallion

I Think You Are Probably Getting The Picture....this Was A Nut And Bolt Restoration Done By A Mustang Professional! This Car Was Trailered To Many Of The Shows And Driven Occasionally, Thus It Was In The Occasional Driven Division At The Mca Shows. I Do Not Have The Time Or Patience To Show My Cars But It Is Always Nice To Know That When You Take This Gorgeous Mustang Convertible To Any Show It Is Sure To Attract All The Attention You Can Handle And Be Awarded Its Share Of Trophies At Even The Most Prestigious Of Events. Best Of All, This Car Truly Drives And Handles Like A Brand New 1973 Ford Mustang Convertible...maybe Even Better!!! It Is An Absolute Joy To Drive And Is Loaded With All The Options You Would Want Including Factory Air Conditioning, Power Windows, Power Steering, Power Front Disc Brakes, Power Top And More!!
