1972 Ford MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE
World Class Motorcars of St Louis MO is offering a very special Ford Mustang on behalf or the Original owner. This Mustang was purchased new in April of 1972 by Mr Donald Marek from Cavalier Ford in Maplewood MO. He paid $4220 for the car and traded is 1967 Chevrolet Biscayne 2dr for $1029. After his $191 down payment Mr Marek financed the $3000 balance with Ford Motor Credit. Interestingly the interest rate in 1972 was 9.31% Mr Marek still owns the car today. He used it as a daily driver from 72 till 1984 including a stint when he was transferred for work to New Jersey. The car is finished in Dark Green Metallic (4Q) with Medium Ginger Vinyl (1F) and is equipped with a 302 cu in Windsor V8 2 valve engine. The transmission is a 3 speed automatic
In 1984 at approximately 130k miles Mr Marek decided it was time to bring the Exterior of the car back to life. He commissioned Garden State Mustangs of Fairfield NJ to perform the necessary body and paint work to bring the car back to original condition This included replacement of the rear quarters, front fenders, left driver post as well as some additional rust repair. The entire car was refinished at this time as well as the installation of a new convertible top for a total cost of $3372 The car at this point was reserved for weekend pleasure driving. In April of 2010 the car received a Jasper period correct rebuilt 302 V8 engine and transmission. Later in that same year the drum brakes were converted to power disc brakes all around. Additional work at this time included new exhaust, steering box, dash lights and a set of 15" magnum 500 chrome road wheels. Several years later, with the odometer showing 65599 miles an oil leak developed and after repeated attempts by the Jasper people to correct it the vehicle was taken to another local shop who diagnosed a seal issue with the crankshaft. Both the crankshaft and seals were replaced as well as the oil pan and associated gaskets. Finally in April 2018 Manns Restorations in Festus Mo replaced or refinished the entire interior including some electrical switches at a total cost in excess of $7000. The vehicle remains largely stock with the wheels and brakes having been upgraded
