1971 Mach1 M Code
I will be visiting the Raleigh, NC area for the holidays and want to check out a vehicle that has been on Craigslist for a long time. Seems odd that no one has picked it up with the time it has been available.

Does anyone have any inside info on this car? Anyone seen it up close and personal? Anyone know the owners? Any cautions to would-be buyers? The phone number listed is the same # for another 1971 Mach 1, Green/green, H code.

Here's the link: http://raleigh.craigslist.org/cto/4231444470.html

Feedback is welcome. Thanks.

I wanted to see that one in person as well.
Seems to be overpriced to me but what do I know?

That's probably the reason it has been for sale a long time...
An original M-code 4-speed car. It's a little light on the options, no ram air, standard interior. But if rust free I don't think the price is too far out of line.

My Mustangs:
71 M-code Mach 1, Medium Blue/White Sport, 4R70W, 3L50, Factory Ram Air.
72 Q-code Mach 1, Pewter/Black Sport, 4-spd, 3L25.
65 Convertible, Britney Blue/White/White, more modified than original.
05 Convertible, Legend Lime/Tan/Tan, future classic??
Sitting on dirt, rust hole on the trunk, rust spots on the quarters that you can't see but the seller knows about, ominous surface rust on the LH fender, trim missing where someone has to take half of the interior out to remove said trim, and the whole bottom undercoated so you can't tell what they've hid recently.

Six indicators that spell "stay away." Add the price, and you have a seventh.


P.S.: Would the rims on this car have originally been Grabber Blue? I thought that was exclusive to examples equipped with standard trim rings and caps, not the Sport Wheel Covers.
