Description for Ford Mustang 1971

Sorry sleeper fans, this 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is definitely not about keeping a low profile. Instead, the vivid orange with black Mach 1 graphics make a statement that practically dares other cars to give it a go. And with a stout 351 cubic inch V8, this real-deal code 05 Mach 1 will more than hold its own on the streets and looks fantastic doing it. If you're going to own a 1971 Mustang Mach 1,... you should probably own one that's going to get noticed. On this performance Mustang, bright colors just looks right. Thanks to a good quality respray a few years ago, this slick Mustang cuts a high profile wake through ordinary traffic and if you like the later fastbacks, you have to admit that they don't get much more attractive than this. The ram air hood with locking pins, the chin spoiler, and the rear wing all contribute to its high-performance credentials, and for the most part, all that gear is totally functional and part of the package. As part of the paint job, correct Mach 1 stripes were applied to the hood and deck lid, along with the hockey sticks down the sides and Mach 1 callouts, a look that just seems right on the long, low Mustangs. Fit and finish are quite good and the chrome front bumper and surround quickly identify this as a '71. Of course, there's still a bit of shiny stuff around the windows and out back, and don't worry, they made sure to buff it up to match the bodywork. The handsome black interior is fairly stock and is how this car was ordered, a pleasing complement to the high-impact exterior and it's a nice combination of original equipment and new components. The original buckets have been reupholstered and look quite stock, and when they work this well there's really no need to replace or upgrade. Black carpets recreate the original weave and texture, and the door panels feature wood inserts to add a little warmth to the upscale Mach 1. The instruments are way down deep in a set of round nacelles, and they include a factory tach along with auxiliary dials in the center of the dash. A factory center console has one of the earliest armrests that's actually useful as an armrest, and there's a newer AM/FM stereo system installed in the dash. A Hurst shifter lends an aggressive look and manages the 4-speed manual transmission without a second thought in the heat of combat. There's also a good-sized trunk with correct mat inside. And you will enjoy driving quite a bit thanks to the burly M-code 351 cubic inch V8 under the hood. Topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and wearing a chrome open-element air cleaner, it has a definitely high-performance look. Ford finned aluminum valve covers look right in the satin black engine bay and other than the aluminum radiator and aforementioned carburetor, the mechanicals are pretty stock. The exhaust system features Flowmaster mufflers for that distinctive Mustang sound, and while the undercarriage isn't detailed for show, it doesn't have any red flags, either. Cool 18-inch Boyd Coddington wheels show off 4-wheel disc brakes with cross-drilled rotors, and carry 225/45/18 front and 245/45/18 rear performance radials. If you don't mind the attention, this is a flat-out awesome car for the money. Like any Mustang, it's fun to drive, but that high-visibility paint job takes this one to another level. Call today!
