The last year in which Ford's iconic pony car would escape being saddled with mandatory federal '5mph impact' bumpers and the year in which the Boss 351 and 429 Big Block were dropped due to emissions regulations, 1972 also represented the penultimate season of first-generation Mustang production. It was the final fling of Ford’s muscle car performance engine era.
This impressive Mustang was imported into the United Kingdom in 1980 hence its ‘V’ registration plate. Thought to have arrived via the US Military personal import arrangement, it has a 351 cubic-inch V8 Windsor motor coupled to a 4-speed manual gearbox. Finished in Canary Yellow and riding on Torque-Thrust wheels, the original steering wheel has been replaced by a vintage leather Motolita item, and the gear lever is a ‘white ball’ Hurst shifter. A new Holley carburettor and fuel pump have recently been fitted and new spark plugs. The carpets were replaced and a major brake service carried out (including a new master cylinder and rear wheel cylinders) before the car was stored around six years ago. Fitted with desirable disc brakes at the front, the history file shows that in 2009 clutch and prop shaft work amounted to £3,150. Although the chassis number decodes as 1972 for the year of manufacture the body style is c.1969/70. Possibly the result of being back dated at some stage.
