To view all 165+ full size pictures including immaculate underside, beautiful interior, incredible engine box with its numbers matching original 375 HP 429 CJ Ram Air engine, please copy and paste on this link. This is a very rare car and has never been offered for sale since new. Has been in the same family since new. The 429 Cobra Jet engine was only offered it the Mustang in 1971 and this is one of them.Most were drag raced and thrashed. This one is absolutely loaded with options, many of which are very rare. The Marti Report proves this and the car is 1 of 1 built with it's options which is decoded off the original Ford production records by Kevin Marti. I would not take the time to take all the pictures and videos, and write as much as I have if the car wasn't worthy either.
It is absolutely spectacular in absolutely every way and drives perfectly, basically like a brand new car, 50 years later! I don't like to call anything perfection, but this car really is darn close!! The 13K miles are original and only things that needed replacing or rebuilding have ever been done to it.The fact it was never outside over night and stored in a humidity controlled facility since new has kept it preserved the way you see it. It is one of the most original, unrestored survivor 429 CJ 1971 Mustangs in the world and I'd say it is one of the top 5 1971 Mustangs in the world.
This car was special ordered and bought new by the owner of F and D Motor Co Inc in North Carolina. He kept the car as a show car and occasional nice day only driver until March 2005 when he passed away. The car had 11K miles as of then and has 13,425 miles now. It was basically their weekend fun car on nice days only since new. This car was was their pride and joy and only driven on the nicest of days, never in bad weather.It has won many first place and best of show trophies over the years at various Mustang and Ford shows including many Mustang Club of America events. It has been started at least every 2 weeks its' whole life and let get up to operating temperature and driven around the block, weather permitting. Nothing leaks or seeps and car is as close to showroom new as you will find, 50 years later. Only hand washed and hand waxed. They even waxed the door jams and cleaned the underside and inside of the wheels often.
Underside and engine box has always been sprayed with protectant to keep everything protected and looking new. You can see the reflections of the clouds above in my pictures link above. Never abused, and never driven by kids. It is almost impossible to find one of these cars where the bodies and undersides are so clean and so tastefully built and well sorted. Even the insides of the wheels have been wiped down after being driven.Absolutely nothing leaks or seeps unlike other low mileage ones that have not been stored correctly and started often. All this was done in the past 100 miles and past month by my automotive shop to make it worry free for a long time for the new owner. It gets thumbs up where ever you go and cruises at freeway speeds with ease. I have it priced to sell immediately and needs absolutely nothing to show, drive and enjoy right away.
Car has been maintained with an open wallet, Don't miss out and regret it later, you will never find another one this well maintained, preserved, this low of mileage, and is ready to do what ever you choose with it.... Everything professionally done much of which by my automotive shop and very well thought out. Please spend a few minutes to copy and past the link above to see all of the detailed 165 pictures I took of this car including many of the original VIN stamped parts such as the engine/trans and date coded original glass and other panels. Only the best of the best on this car. Oil and filter changes ever 1K miles or once a year what ever came first.Everything works in unison and there are no issues, flat spots, hesitations, etc. Car is absolutely perfectly sorted and runs, drives, brakes, performs and sounds like a new 1971 Mustang, 50 years later. It is a very special Mach 1 and all work has been professionally done since new. Never any back yard mechanics. It is very well built and well sorted with no issues. It is really fast and balanced where you can actually drive and enjoy it, unlike most others that may look good, but drive terribly! You get what you pay for!! This car is worth every penny and you will probably never find an example such as this one ever again... After being disappointed by all the ratty other collector vehicles out there and looking at this one, please feel free to message me. This car is exceptionally nice from top to bottom!! Any other collector car you may be looking at, please be sure they have underside shots, or at least ask for some. Even super low mileage cars if stored in humid area, the undersides are rusty and corroded just from the air.
This one is super clean and the many underside pictures show this. Each time it has been driven to a show, it was put on a lift and detailed underneath. You can see all the original tags, stickers, paint marks, chalk markings etc. This car is as solid as can be!
Don't miss out, this incredible Cobra Jet Mach 1 will sell, hopefully to you. It has been lovingly detailed and waxed often, even the engine box door and trunk jams, and underside are immaculate. Look at the refection's in the paint in my pictures in the Photobucket link above. Try finding one of these these cars that has never been abused, or driven in bad weather like this one and has such an immaculate underside. It looks, starts, runs, smells, and drives like brand new 1971 car but with out all the expensive maintenance of a new car.Suspension and steering is tight with no wandering or looseness, no clunks or rattles when going over bumps, no wind noise, brakes stop like they should. No worn down seat upholstery or foam here. They look, smell and feel like brand new. Inside of the truck boasts a good amount of space, surprisingly. You can fit 2 sets of golf clubs in the trunk also if you choose to take it to the golf course to wow your friends!! You will not find a nicer, lower mileage immaculate car such as this that needs nothing for the price. I can honestly say that, because there are none other like this car anywhere for sale.
Please take the time to view the link above with the 165+ detailed photos and watch the 5 videos, it IS WELL WORTH the wait to scroll through them all, and PLEASE read the entire description before asking questions (I know it is long, but I wanted to cover all bases) If you are serious, I know you will read every word, and look at every picture in detail. It is priced for a quick sale to the discriminating enthusiast/collector that appreciates all the details, cleanliness, and correctness of a beautiful. Everything correct on this car for both finish and function, so you don't have to do a thing to enjoy immediately.Ready to show, play, collect, or to just enjoy right away. Can be used in parades, proms, etc. These cars are usually abused, beat and hard to find like this one or super low miles and not stored properly. This one also has the rare options and preventative maintenance of over 8K as explained above in the past month and 100 miles. Car has to be paid for in full before it leaves. You will not be disappointed with this car over the others out there.
In the long run, any other still wont be as nice of a car as this one is already, plus such great provenance and all these options. This C6 automatic is smooth as butter when driving normally and will snap your neck when you get on it between shifts. It is very easy to drive. Your wife could drive it and enjoy it too!! It is easy to start, drive, park and drive on the freeway.Even the pickiest of people will be more than happy with this car. These cars are safe, fun and powerful. Car has very few flaws, much less than you would expect for a 50 year old car. Very little road rash or flaws in the paint. Only thing I can really complain about is the rear power windows are slow and need help back up, but still work slowly.
Even the rare Rim Blow horn works when you squeeze the steering wheel rim! This car will sell, don't miss out, you will never find another like it in this condition and so immaculate and such low miles. No expenses spared on this car from top to bottom, and front to back.
Everything functions like it is supposed to. In my 25+ years in the automotive business, I have rarely seen, owned, or driven a nicer built and well preserved vehicle that is so fantastically maintained and taken care of.I have owned over 1000 Mustangs, Shelby's, Big Block's, Boss's, Pantera's, Saleen's, Corvette's, Camaros, Roush's, Cobra's. Lightning's etc, mostly collector models, and rarely see a vehicle (of ANY type or model) kept in this condition. I just don't have space for more cars. Suspension and steering is smooth and not bouncy or twitchy when driving down the road, or on the freeway. Does not wander when on freeway. This rare Cobra Jet Mach 1. Oon I will also be listing a Laguna Blue 2015 Corvette Z06.
Any questions, please message me and I will respond promptly. Outright price for this beautiful Mach 1. You will NOT find another this nice with this many options and such low miles in this price range!! Don't miss this one, you will never find another like it.If you need a loan, have it set up and approved first please. JJ Best is a great collector car finance company that can get you approved fast if you need a loan. I do my best to describe everything to the best of my ability and knowledge. Car is currently insured, titled and registered. Feel free to ask any questions and I will answer promptly.
I treat others like I want to be treated. In summary: EVERYTHING works properly as intended.No burnt out bulbs anywhere (yes, right taillight bulb that was out in 1 video was replaced for you sharp eyed people :) , the dash lights, gauges, all work perfectly and are accurate. You can let it idle all day in 100 degree heat and it does not get hot. The A/C and heat work perfectly. This 429 CJ Mach 1. S absolutely like a step back in time when these beauties were still made!
It runs and drives excellent and has never been abused or driven by kids. There are no odd odors, odd rattles, or odd noises. Transmission has no grinds or pop outs. It can sit for 2 weeks and it drips nothing. Door close solid with a thump.
You can drive this car anywhere, anytime. Mileage may also vary minimally as car may be driven for supervised test drives and/or inspections and it is driven after letting it warm up to keep fluids flowing through all systems every 2 weeks, weather permitting. Car will still be kept indoors when not being driven. Please feel free to ask questions and I will answer promptly. This car doesn't need a thing to enjoy right away.
It is a no excuse, honest car, that needs nothing to use it and enjoy immediately. It is maintained right and completely sorted from top to bottom, front to back. The paint color combination and options are simply stunning and it turns heads where ever you go.People stop at stop lights and gas stations and make comments on how clean and great sounding it is. Car is simple and inexpensive to maintain and is very safe and fun. Be the envy of your friends and neighbors!
No excuses, issues, or stories with this car. But how many can have a like new 50 year old car that still looks and drives like this one? Have a great day and thank you for looking and (hopefully) reading my long description. I just want to be thorough. Each time I think of something else, I revise the listing, add more pictures, and before I know it, it ends up this long!!
