1971 Ford T5 (T71) Mach 1
I just started this garage, thus, this is only a fragment. I will add more during the next days.

Basic information
============

The car is an original Ford import to Germany and has been its entire life in Bavaria. Thats why it is called a T5 (or actually T71 in the paperwork) and not a Mustang (I hope you still accept me as a Mustang enthusiast Wink) Being a T5 makes it one of only 277 fastbacks produced in 1971. The international T5 registry at http://www.fordt5.com/ lists only four 1971 Mach 1 still known to be on the road. Two of them are registered in Germany. I never met the other one, but that will be an interesting encounter in the future.

That is very cool. My Mach1 was an export to France so it's not a T-5 but otherwise it looks very much like yours.

Hey Manny!

My name is Ritchie, I also have a 71 T5 Mach1 so I guess there are seven of us now! Mine is on the registry and is still in restoration, but when its done it will be the grabber blue/argent ram air car. Not many of us T5 folks out there.

Great info!

Did it say that the 71-72 sportlamps were to be painted all black ( lenses included) and the bulbs removed and wiring disconnected?
If so, that sure would have sucked for the owner of a new 71 or 72 T-5 Mach 1!

According to Kevin Marti, a lot of those modifications were done inconsistently, especially if it was ordered by a U.S. military member stationed in Germany. Typically the conversion parts (such as the lenses, speedo, etc) were shipped in a box and put on once it arrived, but sometimes they were never installed since the car would eventually be going back to the States. That was the case with my car.

I have a T5 too - and I am German - so I have made all right... Big GrinTongue

But it was more of an accident...

Now I am very glad about it - especially because it is a original Mach 1 with a 4-speed Toploader and the 351C-4V - and otherwise well optioned.

There are not much of them on the road...

The speciality of that cars were the yellow turn signal front-housings, the 3-row-heavy-duty-coolers, the KM/H-speedometer, nowhere the name "Mustang", only "T5"-badges.

The most interesting speciality is the following:

The NACA-Hood is not mentioned on the Marti Report if equipped with one originally. BUT: I have the original dealer brochure for Germany where it is mentioned that when you have ordered the strongest engine in 1973 in Germany - the 351C-4V - you automatically got the NACA-hood...
