This absolutely stunning 1971 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 531 429 Cobra Jet Drag Pack Mustangs built that year, its an A-list collectable thats 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 restoration 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 Light Pewter paint, which looks fantastic on the "flatback" Mustang. This car also comes with a framed Elite Marti Report which proves it currently sits exactly as it left the factory in 1971 right down to the factory correct hub caps. 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 delete, which gives it an extremely clean, uncluttered look that should have been how they call came. And every square inch of the car was professionally finished so its ready to knock em dead at shows. 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. Youll note this one sports a C6 3-speed automatic, which really was the fastest way to get down the drag strip and it is a pleasure to drive under any circumstances. The original AM/FM radio remains in the dash and fully functional, right above the heater controls and Mach 1 badge on the console. The trunk is quite spacious, even with the space-saver spare and jack assembly in place. Ford wasnt giving up without a fight in 1971, and the thundering 429 Super Cobra Jet in this Mustang was the king of the hill. Its also this cars original, numbers-matching drivetrain, so its pedigree is unmatched. Fully rebuilt and balanced, it starts easily and rumbles with authority through a stock style dual exhaust system. With an engine bay detailed for show, its just as impressive sitting still with the hood open as it is on the road. This car received a very correct, concourse style restoration right down to all the date codes being correct on the hoses and other parts. Theres 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 for serious racers, and its linked to a set of 3.91 gears on a Track-Lok limited slip inside the 9-inch rear. Stock steel wheels with hubcaps give it a definite high-performance vibe and wear correct F60-15 Firestone Wide Oval tires. Investment-grade second-generation Mustangs are incredibly rare, and this is quite likely the most desirable of them all. Call now! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
