For Sale: 1971 Ford Mustang in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 tribute has a modern shine and a five-speed, but everything from the texture of the seats to the growl of the V8 gives the impression of a vintage pony car. So it's hard not to fall in love/lust with a classic muscle car that has subtle updates.

The vibrant Calypso Coral is a great classic Ford color that was added as part of the solid investments in this coupe. So it strikes an interesting overall balance of the modern and vintage worlds that can attract serious attention at the car shows. And since this pays tribute to the distinct Mach 1, it makes sure to showcase the best pieces in a high-contrast black. This includes the blackout hood with NACA ram air hood scoops, a large chin spoiler, side hockey stick stripes, and a large rear spoiler. There are even details that add to the darkness, like the deeply tinted windows, black door handles, and an awesome set of 17-inch black Torq Thrust wheels. And since they took the time to upgrade this pony car, there are also some subtle additions that make a nice difference. This includes the larger dual exhaust tips and Cobra front badge. Plus, while there was a color-matched front bumper option in 1971, also painting the rear gives this an overall sleeker style.

The restoration of the interior was done in a muscle car friendly black vinyl. The nice headliner, clean door panels, and newer carpeting make it quite inviting. And we love how the seats have a true 1970s classic texture but a new and fresh feel. But this is more than just a restored classic coupe. It's built to be a true driver's car with upgrades like a Grant sports steering wheel, AutoMeter Sport-Comp readouts (including auxiliary ones prominently in the dash,) and a Hurst shift that works well with the large tach. So while you have an upgraded AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth, we all know the best driving soundtrack on this pony car begins under the hood.

Under the hood is exactly what you want to see: a clean and mean powerhouse. This is a 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8 with a mild bore and stroke kit. It has go-fast goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum intake, and wrapped headers feeding an X-pipe dual exhaust. You'll also spot good supporting components like an aluminum radiator, electric fan, Summit electronic ignition, MSD coil, and an Optima battery. It warms up to be a strong powerhouse, and you get to utilize it to the fullest thanks to a five-speed manual transmission upgrade. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and modern sport tires, and you have a terrific total package.

This is that vintage long-body Mustang that has been upgraded to be a terrific Mach 1 with the right modern additions. Call today!!!
