The 1973 Mustang marked the end of the first generation. The fuel crisis had moved buyers' preferences from large, gas-guzzling muscle cars to smaller, more fuel-efficient cars. The turn signals in the grille were turned vertical rather than the horizontal placement on 1971-1972 models. Chrome headlight and taillights bezels replaced the black from 1971-1972. Due to government regulations, the 1973 Mustang would be the last Mustang convertible until 1983. 1973 would be the last year for Mustang Grandé.
The Mach 1 lost it's pop-open fuel door, and the side stripes were lowered and thicker, with "Mach 1" written inside the stripe in front of the rear wheel rather than on the front fender behind the front wheel.
The low-budget movie Gone in 60 Seconds was released in 1974. It was a 90-minute movie with a 40-minute chase scene featuring a yellow 1973 Mach 1. Click here for more info.
