Description
Lot #751 - This 1971 Mach 1 is an original California car delivered to John E. Noyes Ford in San Gabriel, CA, in December 1970. The first owner had driven it until 1982 and then sold it to its 2nd owner. The second owner intended to turn it into a drag car before he realized that a Chevy was a more economical option. This is when I purchased the Mach 1 in 1984 making me the third owner up to present day. Being an original California car, it is totally rust-free and has never had any metal work performed over the life of the car. It underwent a partial restoration in 1993 with a repaint of the original Grabber Blue paint by Custom Auto Center in St. Louis. The original engine was rebuilt to exact factory specifications. The engine compartment was also restored using all NOS Autolite parts by SEMO Mustang. The interior is completely original with only the dash pad and carpeting being replaced. Several local and regional shows were attended over the next few years, resulting in numerous First and Second Place trophies including Second place in two Mustang Club of America regional shows. The car was also featured in the June 1994 issue of "Mustang Monthly". The engine compartment and undercarriage underwent restoration and detailing again in 2007 by SEMO Mustang. A Deluxe Marti Report is available which documents the original equipment and options delivered from the factory for this vehicle. It is a matching numbers car and is only 1 of 531 Mach 1 cars ever produced with the 429 SCJ engine with an even more limited number having a 4-speed transmission. 1971 was the last year the Mustang could be ordered with the legendary big block Cobra Jet engine. This vehicle has arguably one of the highest performance drivetrains offered in the first generation of classic Mustangs. The 429 SCJ engine, available only with the Drag Pack option, 4-speed transmission with Hurst shifter and 4.11 Detroit locker rear axle make it a very rare combination. This Mach 1, complete with full documentation, originality and full option list, make it truly an investment quality car.
