With only 1806 made...this is a RARE car! On top of that it is widely regarded as the quickest 4 seat small block muscle car. Ford rated this engine at 330 horsepower for insurance reasons. Dyno results prove the 351 made over 380 horsepower and over 390 lb/ft of torque in stock form. Combine that power with a wide ratio 4-speed and 3.91 rear gearing, what you get is a serious performer.
This is a striking car. When delivered this one was Grabber Blue, a rare color for the '71 Boss cars. The previous owner had the car repainted back in the 80's. The Medium Blue Metallic shows well with the argent accents. The car was originally delivered to the San Jose area explaining its current lack of rust or corrosion. This is an older paint job and it is showing its age upon close inspection. The driver's side quarter was replaced and from the exterior there are really not any signs of it. However the lower drop-off area installation wasn't as clean and is shown in pics. The paint blend done on the door wasn't the best and in some lights is noticeable, see pics. The floors are nice with one single pan replacement done with a reproduction floor pan. The frame rails look to be in great shape as do the torque boxes. The original trunk pan appears to be completely rust free. Oddly there is some kind of puncture as seen in the pics. Overall, this one is in good condition and could easily be driven and enjoyed for years. Restoration would be straight forward on this one as well given its lack of pervasive rust which is so common in the breed.
Inside this Boss is equipped with the correct Black Décor interior complete with tach & gauges, fold down seat, console and Hurst Competition Plus Shifter. The seats are in good condition with minimal wear, the carpet and door panels likewise are quite nice. The tachometer works properly as do the other gauges including oil pressure, temp & fuel. An aftermarket radio was installed but an original unit is included.
This Boss is a very rare example with its original VIN stamped engine still in place. This one is correct down to its aluminum intake, finned aluminum valve covers, huge harmonic balancer, solid lifter camshaft and dual point distributor. Unfortunately the original problem plagued carb was replaced but it now wears a Pony Carburetors replacement. The 4-Speed transmission is the correct AV1 unit complete with Hurst shifter and reverse lock-out rod. The engine runs excellent and the transmission shifts like new.
The front suspension was just replaced with correct restoration quality upper & lower control arms and KYB shocks front & rear. The Competition Suspension larger springs & sway bars are all still in place. This Mustang handles surprisingly well.
The Magnum 500's are the correct 15" units and are reported to be the correct & date coded units. The tires have good tread and the car does drive nicely.
