This 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 was refinished in white over black before the seller acquired it in 1998, and in 2006 the 429ci Cobra Jet V8 was rebuilt to displace 501ci. Equipment includes a three-speed automatic transmission, a 9″ rear axle, modified suspension, front disc brakes, Magnum 500–style 15″ wheels, staggered-width tires, a front lip, rear-window louvers, a rear wing, and an aftermarket driver seat with a racing harness. The seller has used the car for drag racing and has added approximately 6k miles over the past 24 years. In April 2022 the fluids were changed and the fuel filter was replaced. This modified Mach 1 is now offered with removed and spare parts, partial records, a Marti report, and a clean North Carolina title in the seller’s name.
The car was delivered new in Bright Blue Metallic, and according to the seller it was refinished in white during the mid-1970s. Features include side stripes, a black hood treatment, a front lip, rear window louvers, a rear wing, black lower bodywork, and provisions for a front tow bar. Imperfections are noted in the finish.
Magnum 500–style 15″ wheels are mounted with staggered 28×7.50″ Mickey Thompson Sportsman front tires and 30×12.50″ Mickey Thompson Street ET rear rubber. The car is equipped with front disc brakes, and the suspension has been modified for drag racing. In April 2022 the brake fluid and power-steering fluid were flushed.
The interior features an aftermarket front bucket seat for the driver, with pass-throughs for Simpson harnesses. A cassette player has been installed ahead of the shifter, and aftermarket speakers have been mounted to the rear deck. A switch has been added to the shifter, and a cable pull is attached to the rear transmission tunnel. Trim pieces in the center stack are worn.
A three-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of instrumentation that includes a 120-mph speedometer, auxiliary gauges, a Sunpro Super Tach III tachometer mounted to the column, and extra gauges are positioned in the center stack. The five-digit odometer shows approximately 3k miles and has rolled over. The seller states that approximately 6,100 miles have been added under current ownership.
The car received a C-code 429ci Cobra Jet V8 from the factory. Receipts indicate that the engine was overbored by .030″ and stroked to 4.140″ during a 2006 rebuild that was conducted by Pacific Performance Products of Anaheim, California and resulted in a displacement of 501ci; dynamometer results from that time show that the engine produced 594 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque on high-octane fuel. Service in April 2022 included flushing the radiator, changing the oil, and replacing the fuel filter.
Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a C6 three-speed automatic transmission and a 9″ rear axle. In April 2022 the transmission and differential fluids were changed. Additional photos of the underside are presented in the gallery below.
The Marti report lists the color scheme, factory equipment, delivery to the Detroit sales office, and a production date of February 4, 1971.
The parts pictured in the gallery will accompany the car and include gauges, a seat, wheels, a torque converter, fuel pumps, and more.
