1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Classics  /   /  By Chad Tyson

She’s a year older than the ’73 Mustang Mach 1 ‘Eleanor’ from 1974’s Gone in 60 Seconds and a year younger than the ’71 Mach 1 featured in Diamonds Are Forever, but this ’72 Mach 1 has all the same looks, and probably hasn’t been damaged in any epic Hollywood car chase scenes.

The seller lays out a laundry list of new parts added to this car, which includes exhaust components, shocks, brakes, a fuel tank, a battery, and a new starter. The 302 is said to run great, and in the limited pictures of the engine bay, it appears clean.

Some exterior touch up might be needed, as the seller notes “some fender scratches from bad parking in the garage.”  The interior is sporting some “dry spots on seams,” but otherwise is said to be nice. As there aren’t many pictures included with the listing, it would be smart to ask lots of questions and have the car inspected before submitting a bid—rust and previous damage are always a possibility, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

A grand total of 83 1971-73 Mustang Mach 1s have been sold on eBay Motors since December 2009.  Excellent condition models have been averaging over $21k, while solid driver-quality examples can be bought for around $13k. Click here to see the auction listing.

    Eleanor, in Gone in 60 Seconds, was a ’67 Shelby, NOT a ’73 Mach 1.

      Actually, the reference here is correct. H.B. Halicki’s original film, made in 1974, featured a yellow 1973 Mach 1 Mustang. Bruckheimer’s 2000 remake used a ’67 GT500.
