1971 Ford Mustang MACH-1

Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is excited to present this rare 1971 Ford Mustang MACH-1 429 Cobra Jet. Happy 50th Anniversary you beautiful machine!

Not only is this one of the nicest 71-73 Mustangs we have seen, but it is also a factory 429 4V Cobra Jet version. Ford had the foresight to designate MACH-1 and the engine type in the VIN, and we have the Marti Report showing it was built February 17, 1971. It is 1 of only 160 made with these paint & trim codes, and 1 one of 177 built with this engine and transmission. It was built with the convenience group, power steering, rim-blow deluxe steering wheel, sport deck rear seat, power front disc brakes, air conditioning, AM radio, tinted glass, in dash tachometer, and Firestone Wide-Ovals. It remains in its original colors of White on Blue Clarion vinyl interior.

1971 was the beginning of the end for high compression muscle cars. Ford's 429 Cobra Jet (non-ram-air) had some pretty impressive numbers with 11.3-1 compression, 370 horsepower, 450 ft. lbs of torque, a high-rise intake, and header style exhaust manifolds. Bottom line is there is plenty of power on tap to propel this far-out fastback down the road. And the nice thing is, it was clearly well cared for inside and out, and still looks factory under hood. Truly and investment grade automobile likely to appreciate significantly in years to come just as it has over the last 50 years.

The blue interior looks great and features the fold down rear seat. The dash and upholstery look good as well, showing little to no wear. Definitely a nice honest car, far better than we typically see! Drivers enjoy the long sleek hood from an interior that feels like a cockpit.

This rare 1971 Ford Mustang MACH-1 is for sale through our Fort Lauderdale showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and a HD video at for more information please call the showroom at 954-227-4202 or email us at
