UPDATE: This 1972 Ford Mustang Spent 40 Years Locked in a Garage, Has 5k Miles

Update: While this is a 1972 Ford Mustang, it's not a Mach 1. The special only came in Fastback from, while we're dealing with a Hardtop here. Thank you for pointing out this obvious error in the comments section, it has now been corrected. Come to think of it, a '72 Mustang like the one we have here can easily lead to mixed emotions. For starters, it's difficult not to feel low when coming across the information that the muscle car spent some 40 years locked inside a garage. Then again, the pony has been recently given a fresh start, so let's take the time to zoom in on the machine.

To start with, this is the mid-cycle revamp for the first-generation Mustang Mach 1, as the following model year was the final one for the series.

This Mach 1 landed in the hands of a gearhead named Griffin Grimaldi, who brought the thing back on the road. The enthusiast, who is based in Las Vegas, NV, seems to have covered multiple areas of the vehicle.

As such, the car received a new paint job and is listed as 100 percent rust-free. The cabin has been completely redone and while this sort of TLC was obviously necessary, we're not sure about the airbrushed headliner. Whether we're involving the classic muscle context or not, such a piece will always remain a subjective matter.

Given all that time spent in isolation, the Ford is said to only come with 5,000 original miles, while it seems that the said caretaker has only briefly driven the vehicle since this was completed last year.

As far as the tech side goes, we're looking at a cruiser here. And that's because it features the base 302 motor, albeit gifted with a four-barrel carburetor. The unit is mated to a three-speed automatic.

And yes, this 1972 Mach 1 is now up for grabs. Featuring a clean title, this piece of America is expected to trade hands for $20,000.

Meanwhile, keep in mind that Ford is set to bring back the Mach 1 Mustang for the 2021 model year, with this expected to replace the Shelby GT350.
