1973 Mustang

     1973 Mustangs were the last of a famous generation of Mustangs. The high-performance engines were already becoming less available. And it just so happened that the convertibles were also becoming an "endangered species" of Mustang. After `73, the Mustang wouldn't see another convertible. Convertibles returned nine years after there deletion, in 1983.
