71 Heaven - Mustang Monthly article
#1
Found this article posted on Mustang Monthly's website today. I beleive this is the location Chuck was attempting to organize a visit for. Well, it appears Mustang Monthly had the opportunity and will have a story on it in the future.

'71 Heaven

Filed under: Ford news, 1971 - 1973 Mustangs

During the recent Mid-America Ford & Team Shelby Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we had the chance to visit Kirt Fryer and his impressive collection of '71 Mustangs.

While most Mustang collectors concentrate on earlier Mustangs, Fryer has a thing for '71s, saying that the larger Mustangs were popular while he was in high school.

His collection, housed in a large building in Tulsa, includes several Boss 351s, a number of 429 CJ Mach 1s, an SCJ SportsRoof, and a 429 CJ coupe. His blue Mach 1 has been documented as the last big-block Mustang ever built.

Watch for more on Fryer's '71 Mustangs in future issues of Mustang Monthly

That is the guy. A real peach of a person (tongue buried deeply in my cheek).

I was looking at very old threads and came across this concerning the LAST 429 car built. Apparently it belongs to this Mustang collector (Kirt Fryer) in Oklahoma and is documented.

After a little more digging he not only has the last 429 car...he has the first one as well. Both are documented and both are the same color. Check this out:

Interestingly, Kirt's collection includes the first and last 429 Mustangs. As confirmed by the Marti Reports, Kirt's Bright Blue Metallic SCJ Mach 1 was the first Mustang produced with the 429 big-block. Ironically, the last 429 Mustang is also the same color. It also holds the distinction of being the last big-block Mustang ever produced by Ford. Kirt plans to restore his last big-block Mustang within the next couple of years.

Hey Joel,
If I were you I would try to get some info on this guy's supposed "last 429 Mustang" ever built. It says it is documented, but other than just relying on the fact that no one has discovered a later-assembled one, how would anyone know?
You may have the last one! And if so...it may be worth a small fortune.

Yep,
It is sure worth looking into. Just knowing those exact build dates would be great information for all of us with 429 cars. Gives us an idea where our cars stand in the line throughout the model year.

Perhaps some of our members in Oklahoma could help with this. Anyone know Mr. Fryer?
