Hemmings features 71-73 Mustangs
#1
http://www.hemmings.com/subscribe/curren...cation=HMN

Pretty good article and I only caught a few omissions.

It's no stretch to say that, of the pre-II Mustangs, it's the last ones that are least remembered. After all, today's regular retro-styled Mustangs ape the 1965-1968 Fastbacks, while the exciting 2011 Boss 302 recalls the 1969-1970 models. So where's the love for the 1971-1973s?

These large, smooth cars were equal parts grand tourer and street brawler, and following Mustang tradition, they could be optioned from mild to wild, with six- or eight-cylinder power and plenty of luxury trimmings. They may not share earlier models' build-from-a-catalog parts availability, and their road-hugging style may not be to everyone's taste, but those who consider the 1971-1973 Mustang will find that they can get into a bona fide classic pony car for surprisingly little cash.

On a personal note - I'm in love with the 1972 black Pantera for sale.Shy
