Description for Ford Mustang 1971

This absolutely stunning 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 represents both the pinnacle of Ford pony car performance and the end of the line for big block powered Mustangs. With only a handful of 429 Cobra Jet Mustangs built that year, it's an A-list collectable that's an absolute blast to drive, just as it was more than 40 years ago.
The writing was on the wall in 1971, but Ford engineers were still working at winning races on Sunday to sell cars on Monday. As a result, this stunning 1971 Mach 1 sportsroof was permitted to exist. It received a very high-quality repaint to original specifications and remains in outstanding condition today. Thanks to rare documentation including the original build sheet, it was easy enough to return it to as-built condition, including the stunning code D Grabber Yellow paint, which looks fantastic on the "flatback" Mustang. The blacked-out hood, tape stripes, and Mach 1 callouts on the flanks certainly leave no question about its performance aspiration, and with functional ram air, the big block delivered performance that could match its look. Of note, this was ordered with factory rear spoiler, which gives it an extremely aggressive look that works well with the front spoiler, creating one of the most aggressive-looking Mustangs ever. And every square inch of the car was professionally finished so it's ready to knock 'em dead anywhere you go.
The black Clarion Knit interior was standard equipment in the Mach 1 and received the full treatment during the restoration. New seat covers, carpets, door panels, and a fresh dash pad were all installed to help insure trophy wins at every level. The gauges were rebuilt and feature crisp markings and clear lenses, with auxiliary gauges mounted in the center stack, although interestingly, a tachometer was not part of the package. You'll note this one sports a C6 3-speed automatic, which really was the fastest way to get down the drag strip and it remains a pleasure to drive under any circumstances. The original AM/8-track radio remains in the dash, right above the HVAC controls (yes, working factory air in a 429 Mustang!) and Mach 1 badge on the console. The trunk is quite spacious, even with the spare and jack assembly in place.
Ford wasn't giving up without a fight in 1971, and the thundering 429 Cobra Jet in this Mustang was the king of the hill. It is this car's original, numbers-matching drivetrain, so its pedigree is very strong. Nicely detailed, it starts easily and rumbles with authority through a stock style dual exhaust system, and with the same owner since 1985, you know it's been babied. With an engine bay that's been detailed properly, it's just as impressive sitting still with the hood open as it is on the road. There's Ford Blue on the ram air air cleaner and block, correct finned valve covers, and reproduction decals throughout. The chassis is neatly finished and shows very little use since the restoration was completed. As I mentioned, the C6 was the transmission of choice and it's linked to a set of 3.00 gears inside the 9-inch rear, so it's an easy cruiser. Magnum 500 wheels with hubcaps give it a definite high-performance vibe and wear staggered 225/60/15 front and 245/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.
