1971 Ford Mustang Convertible
This 1971 Ford Mustang convertible will always have a place in classic car history as it represents a cool transition of the original pony car stretching its legs into muscle machine territory. So it's great to find such a bold one that has everything from V8 power to an A/C interior for such a nice price. 1971 was a great year for the Mustang if you're a fan of American flair. This was the first appearance of a major restyle, and it followed Detroit's maxim of lower, wider, and longer. These cars have nice design touches such as the line that follows the front fender all the way through the door, and a recessed back panel that gave it a sporty overhang in the rear. The Mustang was given these elongated lines to create a meaner appearance, and aggressive is exactly how this droptop was built to look. The factory-correct Grabber Yellow has a bolder shine thanks to a professional clearcoat respray later in life. It's also the perfect backdrop to all the dark accents. This includes the Mach 1-style triple stripe, soft top, front spoiler, rear spoiler, and NACA hood with blacked-out paint over the dual ram air openings. Finishing off this speedy image are proper Magnum 500 chrome wheels. The interior is factory-correct and the exact right color for this convertible. The black vinyl bucket seats match the accents on the exterior, which always looks cool with the top down. The seats, carpets, door panels, and dash all have a deep darkness, which keeps it looking good when this Mustang is open to the world. Ford was going for a premium feeling with the Mustang during this era, so you get some nice wood paneling touches on the door and the factory dual-spoke steering wheel. This has a great classic feeling, right down to the AM/FM stereo and correct trunk mat. But one upgrade that you don't see, but will absolutely feel, is the modern R134a air conditioning. It really lets you enjoy this convertible comfortably with the top down. And any time you need to button up, it's just a touch of a button with the power folding roof. Under the hood this Mustang has a correct 351 cubic-inch V8. It keeps to proper H-code appearance with the big air cleaner and Ford blue paint on the block. Everything looks neat and clean, which reinforces the feeling this one received the right investments along the way. Even the dual exhaust has a sweet rumble thanks to a newer stainless unit. This has a solid feeling out on the road, and in fact, you'll enjoy it easily with great features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes. Great colors, the right features, and a value price Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this is a great all around classic for the first person who grabs this deal. Call today!!!
