1971 Mach 1 Richmond CL
#1
http://richmond.craigslist.org/cto/4853688223.html

I think this is probably a really nice car. But some modded/incorrect side stripes are tough to accept for me. -Looks like this car shouldn't have them installed anyway if going for an original appearance.

I have seen some pretty decent modded ones (one green hardtop comes to mind) that seem to add to the look of the car instead of taking away.

This car looks like they wanted a combo look of the 73 Mach 1 stripe integrated into the 71 Boss 351 type side tape stripes. It overwhelms the look of the car IMHO.

Based on the above photo alone, it looks like it might've been a 'no stripe' car, and the only remaining pieces of rocker molding were the ones ahead of the wheel openings on the fenders.

The black stripes on the side are not pretty, that's for sure. But, that's an easy fix for someone wanting a fairly nice '71.

I think the very little information provided and with the body/paint and interior being marked as "good/fair," that I'd start the haggling as a buyer a LOT lower at around $9-10K, and not pay a penny more than $14K. I'd need a LOT more information, though.
