For Sale: 1971 Ford Mustang in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

The 1971 Ford Mustang represents a cool transition as the original pony car stretched its legs into both the muscle car and comfortable cruiser territories. This example really seems to show all of that off well with a cool sporty style, proper V8 power, and plenty of proof it's a rare Spring Special edition.


1971 was a great year for the Mustang if you're a fan of American flair. This was the first appearance of a major restyle, and it followed Detroit's maxim of longer, lower, and wider. These cars have nice styling touches like the line that follows the front fender all the way into the door, and there's a recessed back panel that gives it a sporty overhang in the rear. The Mustang was given these elongated lines to create a meaner appearance, and aggressive is exactly how this coupe was built to look. It's Spring Special package, which was a promotion at the end of the model year to drive sales with something distinct. So the base coupe received the aggressive hood with Ram Air style scoops, a Mach 1 dark grille, color-matched front bumper, color-matched sport mirrors, and Boss-style side stripes. It all looks particularly nice with all the dark features looking sporty against a bright respray of the factory-correct Medium Yellow Gold. Not only is this attractive, but it's also rare. It's believed that about 9k of these Spring Specials were produced, and that makes it about three times rarer than the Mach 1.


The factory-correct ginger has a cool/vintage vibe. It's impressively stock, right down to details like the floor mats, working dome lights, and texture of the door panels. Even the classic Philco AM radio is still there for a display. 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.


Ford's 302 cubic-inch V8 looks quite good under the hood with plenty of bright blue and tidy wires. We know these love upgrades, but it's already a hardy setup with a torque-filled powerhouse. The three-speed automatic transmission is a smooth shifter, and it's an all-around good driver with power steering, and power brakes with discs up front. There's also a nice set of newer modern raised white letter tires on Mag 500 wheels (the stock trim rings and hubcaps also come with the sale, too.)


This is a unique car, and so it comes with the right paperwork to help tell its story. This includes the original window sticker, warranty cars, and owner's manual. So if you love a substantial pony, don't miss this Mustang. Call today!!!
