I agree!!! That is one beautiful ride! How does the rest of the car look? If it drives and looks inside and underneath as good as it does on the outside....then you have one hot car. Very very nice car! That car screams, "I'm from the 70s!"

Times have changed, this was an old common 1980s opinion. 71-73 are going way up in value, probably because they're getting so rare. Nobody restored them in the 80s because of that attitude, so now the 71-73s are rare and the earlier models are way too common. Look at Mustang shows, there's rows and rows of 65-70s and hardly any 71-73s.
About a month ago at Mecum Auctions I saw three 71s in a row go on the block for good money:
A restored 71 Mach1 with 429--$46K
A unrestored 71 Boss 351 ---$46K
And the surprise, a show quality restored 71 Mach1 with 351---$47K
Which 429 cj or scj if it was a cj that's normal price if its a scj the drag package that's a low price.
You are so right. For less than 3K you can have a 450hp fire breather in a 351C and so many transmission options. I see them restored in the mid to high 20s all of the time and to be honest, anything newer then a 69 is just too damn small.
1954 Ford F-100

1972 Ford Mustang Grande Coupe
2002 Triumph Trophy 1200
1968 Cougar 302
yeah selling it for that number would be amazing. in order to have a classic mustang in "show quality" everything must be top notch? and would selling it in auction receive the highest price?
the rest of the car has no problems at all. the floor pans are rust free and solid. no rust at all on my mustang because shes always been garage kept! one thing i'd really like to do is to put something ( not sure what yet) on my engine to make her crank out at least 500 hp, itd be pretty sweet riding around town with that power any suggestions?
I looked it won't show prices unless you login on it.But those kinda auctions people have big money and are not scared to spend it on something.
Logging on to Mecum is just as easy and free as logging on to this Mustang site.
I've actually been to Mecum and saw alot of average Joes there too.
It's a great way to sell a nice car, and there can be many bargains there too.
