This extremely rare 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is a number matching pony car and features a 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8 engine bolted to a three-speed FMX automatic transmission.

As Roger Moore took over the James Bond role from Sean Connery, 1973 was the final year of production for the first-generation Ford Mustang Mach 1. Showcased as the automotive star of Connery's final 007 outing – Diamonds are Forever – the Mach 1 left showroom forecourts as a bonafide legend.  

During its four-year production run starting in 1969, the Mustang Mach 1 was only available as a two-door coupe and was powered by a variety of engines; ranging from a 302 cubic-inch, 4.9-liter Windsor V8 with 140-horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque to the range-topping 429 cubic-inch, 7.0-liter Super Cobra Jet V8.
