Body Styles (compare years, go back to 1973 summary information)


Hardtop

Fastback

Convertible

The 1973 Mustang was the last of the classic Mustang fastbacks, hardtops, and convertibles. Convertible Mustangs did not return until 1983. The 1973 grille was designed with larger "egg crate" holes, and the turn signals were integrated into the grille. The headlight and taillight bezels were chrome, and the front and rear bumpers were redesigned to handle the required Federal standards. The front bumper color matched the car's body color. The engine choices from 1972 returned but with slightly better performance due to overall suspension and handling changes. The 1973 model year marked the end of the classic muscle Mustang with the last of the large engines and Mach 1 option.

Grande
The 1973 Mustang Grande was a special luxury package for the hardtop body style. The Grande options package included a full vinyl roof, body side tape pin stripes, full wheel covers, and a luxury seats and interior trim. This was the last year that the luxury options package was called Grande, in 1974 it was renamed the Ghia after a redesign of the options by the newly Ford acquired Ghia Italian design firm.

Mach 1
1973 was the last year for the classic Mustang Mach 1 which was a sport special model consisting of a NASA-style scoop hood; argent silver or black lower body finish; color keyed front bumper, rear fender moldings, and sport mirrors; black grille with integrated fog lamps; sport wheels; and a sport interior with high back bucket seats, electric clock, triple instrument pod, black and wood grain dash trim, and deluxe carpet and door panels.

Eleanor
The 1973 Eleanor was a movie car from the independent filmmaker H.B. "Toby" Halicki's 1974 film Gone in 60 Seconds. It was actually a 1971 Mustang in 1973 Mach 1 trim. Two Eleanor cars were used in the movie, a "beauty" version for close-up shots, and a stunt version used for the high speed chase scene. The high speed chase scene is considered one of the best movie car-chase scenes of all time. Another is the the movie "Bullitt" which featured a 1968 Mustang!
