Another absolute liar

Quote:1971 MUSTANG BOSS 351 FASTBACK - $50000

EXTRAORDINARILY RARE!
BUILT ONLY ONE YEAR, THE 1971 MUSTANG BOSS 351 FASTBACK
MAC1 Body Style
427 small block, 550 HP
Powerglide (Drag racing, high horsepower transmissions)
4:11 Gear
10,000 miles since complete rebuild
Stubbed frame
Power doors (no door handles)
12 volt rear Amps (2)
Slider
A/C
Dual batteries
Stainless MagnaFlow exhaust system

No VIN provided, Boss block missing in favor of some stroker Windsor, auto trans (Powerglide? Fellow probably doesn't know nor care of the difference between GM and Ford marketing terms), urethane bumper, instrumentation group missing.

He couldn't even bother to change out the aftermarket "Mach 1" floormats, which - along with the urethane bumper - are pretty good indicators as to what this car started as.

Unless "M-a-c-h-1" spells "B-o-s-s-3-5-1" on some other planet, this fellow is an unabashed liar and knows it. And with 4:11 gears mated to a screaming Windsor and C6, dumped in a car painted like that, "Ghetto hellraiser" comes to mind.

Decent enough looking car. He should just sell it on its own merits instead of making stuff up.

if that really was a boss 351 it is a shame what was done to it.

With a little work it could be a nice car, but not a $50000 car.

I emailed the guy asking about the VIN. He sent back..... 1F05MXXXXXX. So it is a 71 mach 1 m code built in Dearborn, but that's about it. Nothing that should demand $50k. I told him he may want to change his ad to reflect that its not a boss 351.

Kurt,

Tell us how you really feel!!

More outlandish claims just like the $71K car. It does look like a pretty nice car from the pictures provided. I do like the black and red combo. Why can't folks who are selling cars just represent them honestly? A 71 Mach 1 M code car is no slouch...

If that thing started out as an M-code, I'd like to meet the idiot who thought putting a Windsor in it would be better - and stuff him down a lifter bore.

Not sure who made the mods, if any, but the seller did say it has a 427 small block with 550 HP. Dude is insane...

Car was bumped up today. Seller admits to the VIN in emails though. Go figure.
