True M-Code: 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1

And it's up for grabs!

When it comes to performance-oriented variants of the Ford Mustang, it’s hard not to bring up the Mach 1, an option package that Ford first introduced 50 years ago. This 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 isn’t the original iteration of the package, but it’s still a clean example of an iconic pony car.

Vintage Motorcars in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin offers this beautiful Mustang for sale. The seller is honest about the condition of the vehicle, noting that it “may not be a white-glove, Concours de Elegance show winner, but it is a very clean classic that can be driven daily if needed.”

The exterior of this Mach 1 is in fantastic shape. At one point, someone performed a professional-quality exterior paint respray, and it is free of any flaws in the paint quality. There are some minor rock chips and imperfections, but nothing that should deter someone who is seriously considering purchasing this.

Both the wheels and tires on this example are in great condition. Additionally, the seller claims that the frame and undercarriage are solid and rust free.

On the other hand, the interior is mostly original. The front bucket seats and rear fold down seat are solid, while the carpet is a recently replaced item. There are also plenty of working features, such as the speedometer, AM/FM radio, factory air conditioning, and gauges for the fuel, oil, and water temperature.

Under the hood, there’s a 351 cubic-inch V8 engine with a functioning Ram Air intake. The powerplant has 78,437 miles on it, and it pairs to a 4-speed manual transmission to drive the rear wheels. This example also features power steering and power front disc brakes, which certainly make it a smoother and more manageable ride.

Vintage Motorcars is asking $34,900 for this M-Code Mach 1. Is this classic Mustang the right pony for you?
