The 1972 Ford Mustang was promoted as ""A beautiful experience,"" and in the case of this premium Grande model, they're exactly right. You're looking at an upper-class pony that has the right mix of good care and investments. That means the numbers-matching V8, a well-appointed interior, and a sleekly vintage exterior that delivers an impressive total package - especially for the value price.
This comes from the era when Ford wanted to give the Mustang some .....
upper-class moves, and the Grande was it. More expensive than the standard coupe, it received standout pieces like the vinyl roof with the Grande badging and a nice pinstripe package. These were the kind of things that screamed premium in '72, and they continue to be attractive pieces today. Part of the overall appeal here is how this one has been given good investments while still looking vintage. The teal paint is a later upgrade. So you get a nice gloss in the sunshine, but it still keeps the kind of tone you'd expect from a 1970s color palette. This polished paint not only shows off the good body lines, but it also goes well with the shine of the bumpers and trim. And we especially like the upgraded alloys. They have the classic Halibrand-style design, but they are a larger 17-inch size that allows you to fit modern tires. So it sets the tone right for a distinct Mustang that's also made to be a true driver.
The gold pinstripe on the outside nicely coordinates with the ginger interior. And just like the exterior, it's properly vintage with the right upgrades added. It starts with the two-tone ginger seats finished in comfortable cloth where you sit and durable vinyl in the high traffic areas. It's the kind of design that could only come from the 1970s, and the condition looks highly original. All the other pieces from the carpets, to the dash pad, to the door panels all follow this earthy tone. So for those of you who want something other than muscle car black, this is a terrific way to stand out from the crowd. And because the Grande represented the premium end of the Mustang family, it's great to see the premium details like the trim in the seatbacks and wood applique in the dash. And because this is made to still be a cruiser, there are good updates like an AM/FM digital tuner with cassette and a sports steering wheel. You may decide to do a few upholstery repairs or restore the factory air conditioning, but overall, this is comfortable and attractive from day one.
Premium also means power. The numbers-matching 351 cubic-inch V8 is attractive with its bold blue block and ""Powered by Ford"" valve covers. While it looks highly original, the way this one runs and drives shows the kind of strength that comes from being properly maintained. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs keep this classy Mustang an easy cruiser.
The sale comes complete with a Marti Report. This premium Mustang Grande has the right style and investments to continue its mission to be a true American cruiser. Call today!!!
