Used 1971 Ford Mustang for sale in Kenosha, Wisconsin
Gateway Classic Cars is fired up in presenting this 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 in the Milwaukee Showroom. Few cars spark the excitement and longevity as Fords original Mustang since it’s introduction to the Ford lineup in 1964 as a vision brought to life by Lee Iacoca. This Mach 1 serves as a true example as to why the Mustang became a performance icon as the original 351 Cleveland that it came with has been ripped out and replaced with a 429 cubic inch 385 series block that has been outfitted with a crankshaft out of a 460 and bored .060 over to make a whopping 494 cubic inches. The internals include Keith Black pistons rated at 11.5:1 compression ratio, and Corbajet heads with stainless steel valves all of which complements the demands of the Lunati split duration hydraulic flat tappet camshaft sporting a lift of .580” on both intake and exhaust and duration of 274 degrees on the intake and 284 degrees on exhaust. What does all this mean? An aggressive power plant putting down true muscle car horsepower and torque through a C6 automatic transmission back to a 9” rear end sporting a 3:23 gear ratio. The Mach 1 was manufactured by Ford as a performance -oriented option model. The 1971-1973 Mach I is considered the first- generation facelift model. Standard features on the 1971 Mach 1 included a sports roof, flat black spoiler, honeycomb grille w/ sport lamps, Mach 1 black stripe pkg, color keyed sport mirrors, honeycomb taillight panel, unique pop open gas cap, and heavy duty springs and shocks. The bright blue metallic paint is accented with a Blue Ruffino/ Corinthian vinyl bucket seat interior. Options include A/C, AM/FM radio, power steering, tinted windows, cruise, gauge package and Bright chrome wheels. Any more questions? Nothing our knowledgeable staff or the Marti Report can’t answer.
