1971 M Code Convertible
My new Mustang, a one-owner car, bought at Christmas 1970 from Akins Ford in Winder Georgia by a father for his daughter. It was her first car. Car was basically taken of the road in the early 1980's and added to the father's 20+ car collection. 72K miles. It has original everything, but tires, exhaust, 4bbl, and an original color respray. Not the best quality, so i have my work cut out for me to remove ALL the overspray. I lucked out that it had the 351C-4, as I bought it with no real inspection and paid 302-2 money. Nicely optioned car. Very happy. I will order and post the Marti Report soon.

Georgia Bulldogs use the same G, but I do like the Pack.

That is a nice car! Can you let me know what your Marti Report states with respect to the front lower bumper guards on this car. I am trying to determine what is correct for my '71 vert restoration when it comes to the bumper guard option. Thanks and have fun.

Welcome - I have one also.

Bought ours as a parts car only to discover the M code and all the Ram Air parts squirreled away in the trunk, Both of ours are red!

Good luck with your project!
