Gas Monkey Garage 1st eBay Car: 1972 Mustang Convertible

Community  /   /  By Richard Rawlings

We recently acquired a 1972 Ford Mustang Convertible 302 V8 that’s begging for the Gas Monkey touch. It’s not in bad condition by any means, but it could definitely use a little TLC.

The Mustang is showing 26,754 miles and is a medium yellow gold with a white convertible top and white interior. In 1972, only 6,121 Mustang Convertibles were produced, so the one we have is relatively rare. To own a 1972 Mustang Convertible was to own the freedom that came from open air motoring whether cruising the interstate or Historic Route 66. And with the Oil Embargo right around the corner, 1972 was the next to last year for the first generation Mustang (which had grown in size & weight each year since its introduction in 1965).

The convertible top is torn and there’s a problem with the electrical wiring, so the blinkers and gauge lights don’t work. The Mustang could also benefit from a new set of wheels and tires. After we’re done with it, this Mustang will be restored to its natural beauty.

This car has been repainted and from the looks of it it has way more mileage on it than shown. The odometer has most likely rolled over.

Still it’s not a bad car for the right price.

The first car I drove was my Moms Baby Blue 72′ Mustang, what stories that car could tell. Blew the engine and as soon has it was repaired I smoked the tires! Wona few street races. Raised alot of hell in that Stang. One of my favorite cars of all time for sure. Ah the good ol days…..
