We're all on the hunt for something special, that's why enthusiasts know to pay attention when seeing a 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 like this. It's a single-year only coupe built with a serious performance V8. So when you can find one of these rare examples that has gone through a thorough restoration, comes with a Marti Report, and an awesomely detailed style, then this is true muscle car royalty.
The muscle car era was beginning its downfall in 1971, but that also created the conditions for a very special machine. The Boss 302 program had come to an end without the Trans Am series support, but Ford wanted to still flex its muscle one last time. They created a true race-ready small block package called the Boss 351, and this is one of the 1,806 that was ever produced. This was built to be a genuinely hot machine, and so it's the true one to deliver on the '71 car's longer and sportier style. The extra-long hood, blocky front end, and sleek Sportsroof style made this look like it wanted to own the road... and the Boss 351 was truly up for the task. After all, the locking pins and Ram Air scoops on the hood are for more than just show. This example was given a comprehensive restoration, and so the factory-correct Light Pewter Metallic has a terrific glow that highlights the crisp panels every time the sunlight hits the sheetmetal. And this color also has a slightly darker tone that goes nicely with the blackout hood, full-length hockey stick stripe, black lower rockers, front air dam, special Boss 351 decals, and full-width rear spoiler. It's a total package that really has an eye for detail, right down to the Mag 500 wheels with pony center cap and wide oval tires.
Inside is a highly correct interior where you can instantly tell they invested heavily to give it a time capsule-like presentation. That means the crisp door panels with wood-like inserts, and the high back bucket seats are complete down to the knit-style inserts and silver stripes. And the included Marti Report tells us this was born with cool options, like the flat-folding rear seat. In fact, take some time to really check out the documentation this gives. You'll discover the true rarity of this Mustang, like how it's one of only 10 of this style that had the rear spoiler, and the added uniqueness of a Canadian ordered coupe. In fact, this was the only one of its kind that did not include a radio. It's a true 1 of 1! Today you'll notice an AM/FM radio installed and some upgraded AutoMeter gauges, too. They don't take away from the already established history, and instead they help make this a better driver's classic. After all, that Hurst shifter T-bar shifter is just begging for your right hand.
Under the hood is what makes this coupe so important. The R-code 351 cubic-inch V8 was specifically built for performance. Ford fortified the constriction, gave it a true Ram Air fresh air system, and added a large four-barrel carburetor on top. The consignor believes this is the original motor, and you also you have all the correct components - right down to the gasket on the air topper and the Autolite carb beneath. In fact, as you look at the full engine bay, you can tell special attention was paid during restoration to keep this all looking quite correct with decals and factory simulated markings. It even continues with the undercarriage with an exceptionally fresh appearance and the correct red oxide paint. These special Mustangs had a performance to rival the big blocks, so you'll love proving it with the control that comes from the wide-ratio four-speed manual transmission. Plus, with the limited slip rear end, power steering, and power front disc brakes, this is truly a fine machine to tear up the asphalt of just cruise the boulevard.
This is quite a special car, and so the sale comes with the reproduction window sticker and deluxe Marti Report to document it. You know how exceptional this car is and the exceptional level that's presented today. So you also know this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don't miss out, call today!
