We're all on the hunt for something special, that's why enthusiasts
know to pay attention when seeing a 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 like
this. It's a single-year only coupe built with a serious
performance V8. So when you can find one of these rare examples
that has gone through a thorough restoration, comes with a Marti
Report, and an awesomely detailed style, then this is true muscle
The muscle car era was beginning its downfall in 1971, but that
also created the conditions for a very special machine. The Boss
302 program had come to an end without the Trans Am series support,
but Ford wanted to still flex its muscle one last time. They
created a true race-ready small block package called the Boss 351,
and this is one of the 1,806 that was ever produced. This was built
to be a genuinely hot machine, and so it's the true one to deliver
on the '71 car's longer and sportier style. The extra-long hood,
blocky front end, and sleek Sportsroof style made this look like it
wanted to own the road... and the Boss 351 was truly up for the
task. After all, the locking pins and Ram Air scoops on the hood
are for more than just show. This example was given a comprehensive
restoration, and so the factory-correct Light Pewter Metallic has a
terrific glow that highlights the crisp panels every time the
sunlight hits the sheetmetal. And this color also has a slightly
darker tone that goes nicely with the blackout hood, full-length
hockey stick stripe, black lower rockers, front air dam, special
Boss 351 decals, and full-width rear spoiler. It's a total package
that really has an eye for detail, right down to the Mag 500 wheels
with pony center cap and wide oval tires.
Inside is a highly correct interior where you can instantly tell
they invested heavily to give it a time capsule-like presentation.
That means the crisp door panels with wood-like inserts, and the
high back bucket seats are complete down to the knit-style inserts
and silver stripes. And the included Marti Report tells us this was
born with cool options, like the flat-folding rear seat. In fact,
take some time to really check out the documentation this gives.
You'll discover the true rarity of this Mustang, like how it's one
of only 10 of this style that had the rear spoiler, and the added
uniqueness of a Canadian ordered coupe. In fact, this was the only
one of its kind that did not include a radio. It's a true 1 of 1!
Today you'll notice an AM/FM radio installed and some upgraded
AutoMeter gauges, too. They don't take away from the already
established history, and instead they help make this a better
driver's classic. After all, that Hurst shifter T-bar shifter is
just begging for your right hand.
Under the hood is what makes this coupe so important. The R-code
351 cubic-inch V8 was specifically built for performance. Ford
fortified the constriction, gave it a true Ram Air fresh air
system, and added a large four-barrel carburetor on top. The
consignor believes this is the original motor, and you also you
have all the correct components - right down to the gasket on the
air topper and the Autolite carb beneath. In fact, as you look at
the full engine bay, you can tell special attention was paid during
restoration to keep this all looking quite correct with decals and
factory simulated markings. It even continues with the
undercarriage with an exceptionally fresh appearance and the
correct red oxide paint. These special Mustangs had a performance
to rival the big blocks, so you'll love proving it with the control
that comes from the wide-ratio four-speed manual transmission.
Plus, with the limited slip rear end, power steering, and power
front disc brakes, this is truly a fine machine to tear up the
asphalt of just cruise the boulevard.
This is quite a special car, and so the sale comes with the
reproduction window sticker and deluxe Marti Report to document it.
You know how exceptional this car is and the exceptional level
that's presented today. So you also know this could be a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don't miss out, call today!
