1973 Ford OtherMinor Damage to the Front, rill missing a few of the plastic Bars, Door ding, ne dent above driver door, ery minor Rust spots on bumpers(surface rust will come right off), uspension is Aged(as in with a few extra people in her she sometimes rubs the tires when you turn sharp), o A/C, o Radio, as gauge just stopped working should be easy fix, f you are rough on her she can slightly leak oil out of the front of engine(i was told is probably just a gasket not put on properly and not to worry about it just check oil every so often), lternator belt will come off if your rough on her (moral is she is an old car, o not be rough on her),That is all the bad i can think of on her, he is amazing car and GREAT to drive around, real Eye catcher and always have people taking pictures and wanting to see her. Sounds great, uns great, reat power out of her. Just an all around amazing find especially for what and how old she is.
MostlyOriginal1973 Gran Torino Sport - AMAZING Condition VERY Rare Find.Has Clean title and Antique plates that go with her.I do Believe that is the Original miles, ut do not quote me on that, tory behind this car goes that from a sticker on the front windshield it was in the state of Virginia in the 70's to 80's, omehow made its way to MS and sat at a man's house where he washed it and took amazing care of it for many many years, e passed away and his wife gave it to their grandson who then sold it to someone for next to nothing, hen that person traded it for a car, hen that person sold it to me and then i took care of her and made sure she was in the best shape i could for almost 2 years and then i left for deployment (during which a car collecting friend took great care of her) and came back and still have some things i need to take care of, o now she can be yours and hopefully she can continue to move through the ages as an icon of beauty to car collectors and fanatics everywhere.
Interior has been re-done by the previous owners and since it has been SMOKE FREE, o cracks in the windshields or anything, o major damages that i have seen or been aware of. I have driven her across the US and even had to use her as a daily driver while other car was in the shop. She has always done fine by me and been Very Reliable. Its actually upsetting to let her go but Life has happened and i must come up with the money.Transmission: it works perfectly fine as is but she could use an update.
Body: she has almost Zero ware from the 42 years, till hasOriginalpaint which you can see from the doording(sad but it proves there is no paint under and my guess is its still the old style lead paint), nside has been completely redone recently, ts back to original condition.Outside, he has 4 very very minor spots, he front grill needs work, he rear bumper needs to bere chromed, nd a small spot overthe driver side door. and now a recent door ding(i have shown these in the pictures)
rims&tires: the original rims where found and replaced back onto the car she has fresh brand new tires. but i cant find the original center caps.
Engine: 351 Cleveland. she has been fully rebuilt, he has all the latest Edelbrock parts. Starts up every time tons of pure Power, rive ready.
Steering: I just got her all of her idler-arms replaced and she steers like she is right off the showroom floor.
Electronics: all in great working order... all headlights high beams taillights and blinkers and even the cab light and the back lights behind thegaugesall work and never had a problem with them.She does have a Recent Oil change as well as Tons of Oil filters and Extra oil and other fluids i kept in the trunk just in-case - never needed any but with an old style you never know so just better to be safe than sorry.
------------- That is pretty much it-----------------
I've had her for about 2 years and never had a single problem with her.
I do have tons of extra parts and such that will go with her. (things that came off when the new went on) I also have cleaners and even a jack and stands that will support her if you need them just Email me and ill make sure they stay in the car for you.
Any Questions Comments or Concerns feel free to email me.If you want more pictures or anything at all email.For shipping i can get you in-touch with a shipping company i have used before, ut over all it will be up to you to have her picked up but i will help in any way i can, he is a good car and Deserves a good home.If you have payment Concerns just Contact me Via Email and i will see what we can do.I bought her in Mississippi, nd then drove her across country toVirginia, as an amazing drive with no issues or problems just a ton of fun and a great ride. Well there was one problem, y wallet hatted it, AS is NOT cheap in this, would Not Suggest it for a Daily Driver just due to the amount you would spend on gas, ut for a Sunday driver or even a show car. This is the car for you.
