Got Me Some American Muscle!

I'm going to be picking up a 1971 Mustang Mach1 Fastback this weekend! I always wanted one because it is the same year I was born. This one was even built the same month!



It has a mildly built 302 bored out to 306 with a performance cam and hydraulic lifters. Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and Holley 600cfm carb. Chrome headers and Flowmaster dual exhaust round off the business end.



The icing on the cake for me is a full set of Cyberdyne digital gauges and a Lokar auto shifter! She's ready to roll but it does need a few minor things like an alignment and fix a small tear in the seat. Otherwise, I'll be hitting the local show this Sunday! wOOt!!



I even started a new website to help quench my thirst for 71-73 Mustang Knowledge! www.7173MUSTANGS.com

More pics after I get her home!


Yea, tho I cruise through the valley of the shadow of rice, I will fear no Turbo,
for Torque art with me. Thy rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

Absolutely! My shutter finger is already itching! (along with my lead foot! Haha!)

I know it's a Ford but it should make a nice playmate for the Cobalt! LOL! I'm also restoring a 72 Mustang Coupe...I might not have told you guys about that! I already have a Ford Racing 306 Crate Motor sitting in the garage waiting to get installed. But that will be a winter project!

[Cliffy Claven Voice] Eh, it's a little know fact tht the 71-73 Mustangs are only 4" longer and just over 500lbs heavier that their 69-70 siblings. That was to accommodate the available 429 Cobra Jet power plant! [/Cliffy Claven Voice] Personally, I love them! Definitely one of the most slippery designs to ever grace the Mustang name plate.
