1971 Ford Mustang.jpg

Ford Mustang. 1971–3 (prod. 409,638). 2-door coupé, 2-door fastback, 2-door convertible. F/R, 250 in³ (I6 OHV), 302, 351, 429 in³ (V8 OHV). Original Mustang platform grown to ridiculous proportions, thanks to intervention of its president Semon ‘Bunkie’ Knudsen in the late 1960s. Born during the horsepower race but, when launched in 1970, seemed out of place with rising insurance premiums and emissions’ regulations. Has its admirers but regarded as less collectible than earlier models. Last Boss in 1971; Mach I took the performance mantle for the run. Some luxury in Mustang Grande coupé. Last factory convertible for many years in 1973.
