Gateway Classic Cars of Las Vegas is pleased to present a 1971 Ford
Mustang Convertible in a special-order configuration. It comes in a
Metallic Brown with Brown Vinyl Interior with a White Convertible
Top.This first-generation Mustang was introduced in September of
1970 as a 1971 model during which a power convertible top was added
along with a glass rear window. The model grew in length by 8",
width by 3" and the wheelbase widened by 1" along with an increase
in weight of a few hundred pounds. Power is generated by a 351
Cleveland V8. This example is mated to a 4 speed Muncie Manual
Transmission. Handling this power was a Semi-Floating Hypoid Rear
Axle with a 9" rear end with a 3:43 gear ratio on a live rear axle.
Up front there is an independent suspension for improved steering
and road handling ability. The uneven tracks are absorbed by BF
Goodrich T/A Radials mounted on 5 spoke Aluminum Alloy American
Racing two tone wheels in a 245 60 R15 setup all the way
around.This example has been in the same family since new in 1970
and was custom ordered from the dealership at the time of purchase.
It went through a restoration in the late 1980's and now carries
front disc brakes up front and drums in the rear. The engine,
transmission and rear end were all rebuilt and have approximately
15000 miles since the rebuild. If you are looking for that special
70's Muscle Car in a rag top that stands out form the crowd and can
escape the crowd in a hurry and style then look no more.
