This recently restored Mustang has a bunch of factory options on its build sheet.
When it comes to Ford’s celebrated Mustang sports car, the Mach 1 is one of the most renowned performance packages, especially the first-generation model. This 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 underwent a restoration a few years ago, and it’s an impressive specimen of the facelifted first-generation Mach 1.
Street Dreams in Fredericksburg, Texas offers this Mach 1 for sale. This example is clean throughout and features a variety of factory options, such as factory air-conditioning, power steering, and power brakes, making it a somewhat comfortable muscle car. The seller also includes build sheets, receipts for work performed on the car, and also a Marti Report, which is a vehicle order information report from Ford Motor Company's database.
Both the interior and exterior of this Mustang utilize a black and white color scheme. While it is easy to dirty up a white vehicle (and especially one with white seats), this example is extremely tidy. Personally, I enjoy the wood accents in the cabin, which nicely complement the black carpeting and white seats.

All Mach 1 Mustangs were available with non-functional hood scoops as a no-cost option or a standard feature, but this Mach 1 features the Ram Air hood option. The Ram Air hood utilizes a vacuum controlled door and a fiberglass plenum to direct cool air through an air filter housing and into the carburetor.
This Mustang features the M-code 351 cubic-inch Cleveland” V8 engine, which uses a 4-barrel carburetor. From the factory, this 5.8-liter V8 made about 285 horsepower and 370 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine pairs to an automatic transmission to drive the rear wheels. Both the advertisement and the 5-digit odometer display 42,144 miles.
