Ain't nothing like a well documented and illustrated ad. This isn't one.
Besides, that picture seems pretty old.
Why does it look like the bottom of the front fender has a molding with a contrasting color when the rest is one color? Or is that a reflection?
Other than that the car looks really nice.

300 miles, and kept in an upholstery shop? No wonder the top is so nice.

To add to Lux's observation: Not only does it have an argent front valance with moulding, it has a urethane bumper. The moulding and urethane bumper would indicate the Decor Group, but what of the rest of the paint and mouldings?

And if it is not supposed to have the argent front valance, why does it have the urethane bumper?

No VIN either. So much for pulling a Marti on it. Smells like a good old traditional snow job in the making.

Ok, cross-examination sent to seller:

Quote:Could you provide better photos of the Mustang, particularly the underside of the body? It would appear from the photo that the underside is blue, despite the argent front valance panel (which would indicate the Decor Group and also explain the body-color urethane front bumper).

Additionally, could you provide a copy of the car's Marti authenticity report for the car, if previously ordered? If you do not have one, could you provide the Mustang's VIN (should be "1F03H..." for a 351-2V or "1F03M..." for a 351-4V. In very rare cases - for 1971, that is - it may be "1F03Q..." for a 351-4V) so I may order such a Marti, in order to learn of the vehicle's original specifications before deciding on whether the Mustang is worth making the trip in person to examine?

We'll see what baloney they come up with.

Air bag? Try wind bag.

Yep. Thank guys for all the observations - I posted LATE LATE last night.

I doubt if it's a joke or a scam. Too subtle to be such.

These type of ads used to be very commonplace for '70s Lincolns being sold back in the 1990's. Enter a few one-owner old farts, and combine them with their rusty (or not) Lincolns. Anything with an upright radiator grille would have the asking price of a perfectly restored Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud.

"And look here - it has the original Michelin tires," to which you see a pile of dryrot.

This ad is the same parallel; only the old fart bought a Mustang and has been watching the Mecum auctions on Velocity from their retirement home.
