The words Mustang and Mach 1 need little introduction to fans of the pony car era. A legendary performance variation on the ever-popular Ford Mustang, the Mach 1 has been celebrated throughout time. This 1971 Mach 1 is from the Ford Mustang’s first-generation facelift, and as such features the distinctive front nose, hood, and urethane bumper spoiler unique to this model. This particular 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 has 42,000 miles and is one of 2438 ever made with this white paint code, and is also one of 160 Mach 1s that were produced with this particular paint and trim combination.
This 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 sports the optional and sought-after Mach 1 “Sports” interior. A cost option when new, the sports interior added molded door panels with front armrests, a clock, and metal pedal trim. It also included the blue knit vinyl bucket seats which this Mach 1 still carries, along with other panels that mimic this distinctive and very period blue theme. The white paint code (#1619-A) not only makes this Mustang Mach 1 rare, but it also contrasts perfectly with the traditional and original black Mach 1 body stripes and rear-deck spoiler. This particular car also features the ram-air intake option on the hood which transforms the Mach 1’s hood into a fully functioning air-intake.
This Ford Mustang Mach 1 features the Cleveland V8 381ci (5.8 liters) engine that made the model so popular. In this example, it’s paired to a C-6 select shift automatic transmission with Ford’s Track-Loc differential. For good measure, the Mach 1 also features power steering and power front brakes.
