Ad says one owner. I guess maybe a dealer has it now? ???
Urethane bumper and "351 Ram Air" stickers on hood make me very suspect.

From the one photo I was "suspect" it may be a Mach1 cloned into a Boss, I believe only the Mach1 came with the urethane bumper in 71? The add also says those are the original wheels, those look to be at least 16's or 17's which wouldn't have been original.

After posting this I did a google on the front bumper for the 71 Boss, it did come standard with the chrome bumper but Hemmings says it could be special ordered with a body colored urethane bumper.

Couldn't find the scam button on the mobile site!
Pretty nice looking for an almost correct knockoff!
We can thank BJ, Mecum and the Monkey for the plethora of fake azz overpriced cars.

Yes. That is what I am saying. From what I know to date...

Even more suspect as I don't trust Hemmings too much. It would be a very odd Boss 351 but there are a few strange ones - like Bob Perkins' car that had the Mach 1 hood treatment. It was documented and I believe a very low-milage car. I think he sold it a few years back.

The wrong text on the hood would be due to a repaint or maybe the original "Ram Air" was re-applied and someone just got lazy. (attention to detail is very important to me!!)

Urethane bumper, misplaced Boss 351 decals, Magnum 500s, tells me the seller of this Mach 1 wants us to believe it's a Boss 351... and not just a clone.

Appraisal for $60,000. Yeah... right.

BTW - those are 15" Magnums... just with some almost too wide 60-series tires.

$60,000 appraisal, but what is someone willing to pay for the car is the real value.

unless he shows documentation with proof its a Boss with all of the above pointed out (bumpers, wheels, decals) its not a real-world $60K car.

Gee - how about some engine pics (rev limiter and valve covers ?) just to name two Boss only things and the VIN $ and we might not be so suspicious.
