71 test car ordered for Ford Mktg
#1

Hello all,
got our marti and it shows the car ordered as a Test Car for Ford Marketing in San Jose. Very early production. Wondering does anyone know the significance of that designation.
Thanks,
Jenny

Why I cannot address your particular Mustang, there is an article in the January 2011 edition of "Mustang Monthly" on a 1971 429 Mach 1.

Perhaps that article can provide some insight on your car.

Jenny,

A previous thread addressed some rare, very early production cars. You might review and possibly post/pm to get more info. Your test car designation is very interesting!

Another interesting piece of info:

I copied this from the Classic Bronco forum:

http://classicbroncos.com/forums/archive...67789.html

... he worked in Ford plants forever, he said would be suprised more than 5% of the Test vehicles ever made it out to the public. He said that typically, once they were done testing them they would be used at the plants(if they were still able) and eventually scraped.
