Gas Monkey Garage: Ford Mustang Ready for Auction

Classics, Community  /   /  By Richard Rawlings

eBay Listing: 1972 Ford Mustang Convertible

Updated: Aug 27, 2013

There’s nothing we love more over here at Gas Monkey Garage than taking an old Classic and bringing it back to life. That’s what we did with this ‘72 Ford Mustang Convertible 302 V8. It had been sitting in a garage for 2 years and was begging to cruise the roads again like it did in its glory days. In order to do that, we:

  • Fixed the wiring issue so that all of the lights and blinkers are fully functioning
  • Outfitted the ride with Rocket Racing Booster wheels and Toyo Proxy 4 Plus Tires
  • Installed a lowering kit for a one-inch drop in ride height
  • Installed a new convertible top
  • Detailed the car so it shines like a diamond in a goat’s ass

Now the Mustang is ready for a new owner and new adventures. Bid on this Mustang HERE:

    This car was on ebay 2 years ago, and sold for $7,500.
    It said the mileage was 19,000. It’s from Wisconsin.

      You must be thinking about a different car. The previous owner had the car for 2 years and she lives in Texas. The owner before that also lived in Texas, so there isn’t a Wisconsin connection here unless it was way way back in the day.

        GMG- great job on the Stang; the yellow and restoration on interior and engine are top notch as always; hope you get your asking price. Monkey ON!

    Hey Bill D – If this is the car your comment refers to then why are the monkeys advertising it as a 12 year in the making garage find?? Are you saying they are misrepresenting the car?? How sure are your facts?? Just asking – Bruce H

    There are nice ’72 ‘Stang dash pads on eBay for only $130. It would have made a noticeable difference. Sweet looking car, though!

    Hey Mad Monkey’s,

    I’m disappointing, it doesn’t look that different to how it was 🙁

    Maybe I should come and see you and get you to build me a one-off monster…
