Ok ... I'm a limey Brit and I'm asking an impertinent question here. 

How old were you when your 7173 Mustang was born?

My car was born 27th April 1971 ...so 

I was 7 and 4 months  ... and what a little s**t I was too  :-/

My car was born on (produced at the factory) on 4/19/73. It was 3 year 5 months and 20 days before I was born. My sister was only 48 days old when my car was born.

My car's birthday is Nov 24, 1972, so I was 5 years, 8 months old when my car was born.

I was 17 when I purchased my brand new 71 M code, ram air hardtop.

I was also seventeen when my convertible and B1 were both built but had to wait forty years to take ownership of them.

Mine was born 8/71 so I was too young to drive it then at 10 years old

73 Ford Mustang Mach 1 351 CJ all matching numbers, under restoration.
73 Ford Mustang Sprint from Mexico.
"Your vehicle was actually produced on March 23, 1973"

So I was 6 years 7 month and 25 days.

About the Mach 1 Sprint from Mexico, no Marti reports, but should be more or less the same.

For the story, In 1973, my parents bought a brand new Ford Taunus station wagon.

My car was May 1972, so I had just turned 6 years old. I bet when the first owner bought the car it wouldn't have entered his/her thoughts that there was a kid in Australia half a world away waiting in sombre moody anticipation to become the middle-aged custodian of the vehicle.

Mine was built 30 Sep 1970, just 2 years and 9 months after I was hatched (My B-Day is New Years' Eve).

Since I am one of the old farts on here I am a little different, I am 71. I ordered my car on March 30, 1973 and it was built May 11, 1973 and shipped May 14, 1973. I picked it up on May 24, 1973. Sticker price was $5,203.92 and after taxes and discount out the door for $4,803.95.

I was born March 5, 1948 so I was 25 at the time and a Journeyman Tool & Die maker and made good money. So I am an original owner not too many out there.

I'm another O.F., I had already spent 3 years in the Army and had started a career. My '71 rolled off the assembly line on April 27, 1971, I had turned 26 the month before.
