Most optioned cars
#1
One thing I've noticed since studying Marti reports is that almost all M-code cars have nice options. My guess is that since 71 was the first year of the new body style that if someone made an order for the larger 4V 351 then they also opted for a few other things as well. My M-code cars have more options than any of my other 71-73 cars.

My Mustangs:
71 M-code Mach 1, Medium Blue/White Sport, 4R70W, 3L50, Factory Ram Air.
72 Q-code Mach 1, Pewter/Black Sport, 4-spd, 3L25.
65 Convertible, Britney Blue/White/White, more modified than original.
05 Convertible, Legend Lime/Tan/Tan, future classic??

My M Code is kind of middle of the road for options, marti report show C6, Convenience Group, Power Steering, Power front disk brakes, Am Radio, Console, Tachometer, tinted glass complete.

Ram air system was installed after purchase and AM radio switched out for AM/FM 8 Track.

Comes down to cost i think vs performance...Most of the 4v cars with 4 speeds didnt get ac...cause it ruined the warranty..plus most hot rodders didnt want the ac robbing power.....M codes could get all the options..And still get the stripes and the nasa hood and deluxe interior...Everything the 4v models could get with out the slightly heavier price tag....That being said...My 4v q code marti report is one of the highest optioned stangs i have seen..But i know not all stangs are like that.

Don is right,although I was looking for a 4 speed,when I saw the options on the Marti report on the 71 Mach said to myself that this car is too well optioned to let it slip away:
Factory air
Power side windows
Tilt steering
Tachometer
Fold down rear seat
Rimblow steering wheel.
PDB
P/S

I think the H-codes might be right up there as well. Even without the Marti, I know mine had:
P/S
PDB
Rim-blow steering wheel
Tilt
Ram-Air
Convenience Group
rear window defroster
deluxe interior
tinted glass

Unfortunately, that's just with the FMX, speedo/clock cluster, no console, crank windows, and no A/C. But the DSO was Lansing, so why would they have ordered A/C, right? Still could've gotten an 'H' with the speedo/tach, console, power windows, and A/C after all - and that's pretty loaded, eh?

Yeah, there are other cars with lots of options no doubt but it seems that M codes were mostly well optioned cars. I haven't seen a bare bones one yet.

Hyena, your car was one of the last ones produced if I recall correctly and as such Ford just threw everything they had on left on the shelf on it including an unidentified item strangely coded on your buck tag. Tongue

it was a different mind set back then...either luxury or performance. Most guys that wanted performance totally ignored the nice options.
