For Sale: 1971 Ford Mustang in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Ford Lauderdale is excited to present this very rare, 1970 Ford Mustang MACH-1 in white & black on blue, equipped with the pavement frying 429 Cobra Jet V8. This sleek Ford was built on February 17, 1971 and sent to Drew Ford in Lamesa, CA where it sold the very first time on September 1, 1971. It is one of only 160 in these paint and trim colors, and only one of 177 with the 429 CJ and C6 automatic transmission combination. It is nicely optioned with the convenience group, power steering, rim-blow steering wheel, sport deck rear seat, power disc brakes in front, air conditioning, AM radio, tinted glass, tachometer, and of course, the 429 Cobra Jet. For you numbers guys, the VIN prefix 1F05C and we have the Marti Report. Still sporting it's original colors inside and out, the overall condition is very good plus- and what a sleeper! Most people think the 1971-1973 Mustangs are just big and heavy- and nowhere does this car tell it's would be challengers it's packing a strong 429 under the hood. In fact, this car has the same horsepower, more torque (and nearly identical power to weight ratio) as a 1969 GTO with a Ram Air IV in it. It is no slouch with factory ratings of 370 horsepower and 450 ft. lbs. of torque... and with the 1971 (net) horsepower ratings, you had better bet that 370 horse rating was below what it really was. It runs strong and drives very well. The inside is a nice light-medium blue bucket & console arrangement that is cockpit like- all business and just cool. The fold-down rear seat gives it a two-seater feel like and AMC AMX, and provides considerable more storage space. This car really stands out with the condition, correctness and unaltered aspect throughout- which on top of it being a low production car, it makes it one very desirable, investment-grade American legend.
