This 1971 Ford Mustang gives you a great classic car appearance in a seldom-seem body style. So everything from the bright paint to the Marti Report really makes this V8 classic feel special.

The '71 Mustang began a new era. This is where the idea of lower and longer cars really struck the first-gen pony car. While we often see examples of the fastback/Mach 1, a hardtop like this is a far less-seen body. And that seems odd because this is absolutely the one if you love style. The hardtop beat out the Jaguar XJS by a few years to use the long trunk to create an elegant flying buttress rear end. This example has been refinished later in life in its factory-correct Bright Red. So it retains a nice gloss that really lets the light show off the long curve of the hood that ends in a sporty forward-leaning front. Bright chrome bumpers, proper side trim, and correct Mustang wheel covers are all part of a very cool and classic total package.

The factory-correct black interior looks good against the red. Everything inside has a correct style feeling, but there are some subtle upgrades. The seats keep the correct look and knit vinyl pattern, but they have a feeling of a fresher investment. And the radio has the classic knob-style look, but it's an AM/FM/cassette with upgraded speakers for better driving music. Plus, the high-back front bucket seats, the dual-spoke steering wheel, and deeply recessed gauges have the right driver's car feeling. So this is an ideal vintage cruiser.

Premium also means power. This was born the optional H-code 351 cubic-inch V8. That correct displacement is still under the hood today with a year-correct block. It fires up and runs with the kind of quality that you expect in a well-respected coupe. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front disc brakes keep this classy Mustang an easy cruiser.

The sale comes complete with good paperwork, including the original warranty card, reproduction buildsheet, maintenance records, and the Marti Report. This is the less-seen coupe that also has a terrific style. So it's amazing you can get it all right now for such an affordable price. Call today!!!
