|Ford Mustang Convertible 1971|
Ford's ultra successful first generation Mustang came in for one final revision which lasted for the three years between 1971 and 1973. Although it shared many of the styling cues of the original, every dimension was bigger - the car was longer, wider and heavier in keeping with industry trends. Built on a 109" wheelbase, the 1971-1973 Mustangs remained true to the original formula in many ways, continuing to offer a myriad of engines, transmissions and trim options. Three different body styles were available ranging from the coupé and fastback to the Convertible although demand for ragtops was in serious decline and 1973 would be the final year of the open-topped Mustang for several seasons.
