My car was ordered by Ford employee, J. Williams who worked at the Atlanta Assembly Plant Hapeville, Georgia. I have no idea who or what Mr. Williams did or if he was perhaps an executive there. According to Kevin Marti, my car was ordered under the Ford Motor Company Lease Plan. Kevin said that any Ford employee could participate in this program.

I am currently in the process of identifying as many previous owners as I can. Also trying to get any old memorabilia they might have to put in a scrapbook that will always stay with the car. You see, I know the car will out live me. I want the next owner to know and have as much information and documentation as possible about this car. Trying to look out for the next generation of big body Mustang lovers out there!

Tell us what you know about your 429 Mustang!

That is a loaded up 429. Looks like that exec. checked most if not all of the boxes. Do you have a Marti on it? It has got to be a low number of comparables. Great to see you looking for some 429 members. I am not sure myself how many we have, but I sure hope I can be one someday.

I call on every 71 listed on craigslist in the general area and check for a J, C, or R in the VIN.

So far we have found one M code Sports roof - mostly rust free - this is the car my son and his friend are going to restore to resell this summer.

A not so rough 71 convert sold in Florida a few years back for 3K - it was a C code 429 4 speed car.

I bet there are more than a few cars within 100 miles or so of our home that are just another rusty old big 70's Ford to the current owner. They will get sold on CL at some point. (and I will probably be one phone call to late.)

A 67 Fastback popped up on CL with no picture here in St. Louis for 5K a few months ago and the ad was deleted within 30 minutes by the owner. I bet he sold it to the first person who called.

I have bought a few very cheap parts cars doing this over the years so I do not considered it a waste of time. Actually its kind of fun.

Nice..very loaded too..she is one of one..I would put a little cash on that bet Wink...I think the only i see missing off the top of my head is the heavy duty bat and AM/FM stereo radio....Wild they did not put atleast the AM/FM in along with the tape system..but im sure it had to do with what some one wanted.

AM/FM Tape was not offered in 71. Only choices were: AM, AM/FM stereo or AM/ 8-track stereo.

Yep,

You are right. FM radio stations were just not hot back then. However, 8 Track players were still hot. I put a Craig Pioneer on the console of my 67 RS Camaro and ordered a AM 8 Track radio on my 72 Mach 1.

I remember arguing with the salesman when he said there was no such thing as an AM 8 track radio. He apologize when he found it on the order sheet. Ironically, when my car came in on the train a couple months later thieves jumped the train and stole the radio out of my car. I had to wait a couple more days for the dealer to put another radio in the car.

When I did finally get my car some moron at the dealer threw my window sticker in the trash. Really made me mad. I was just a kid back then and did not have the sense to go fuss to them about it. If I had I might have ended up with the dealer invoice. I doubt I even knew what that was back then.

My 71 has a period correct for 71 AM FM radio in the dash. However I do have my original AM 8 Track radio that came with the car when I bought it. I will probably re-install it since my Elite Marti Report actually shows that my car is one of one based on the AM 8 Track radio.

I don't really listen to the radio anyway. Would rather hear the rumble of the 429!
I knew I should have held on to all those 8 Track tapes. As I remember the sound was CD quality.Confused

Paul,
I check CL for stuff all the time. You have to be ready to roll or you lose. There are people out there that sometimes don't know what they have and you can get a deal.

I am still looking for that ad that says 1953 Chevy for sale. They have never found serial#100001 1953 Chevy Corvette. Would be a nice find!

I was in the room when a friend called on a 54 Chevy - he got all excited and told the lady that he would bring cash in an hour and to tell everyone who calls that the car is sold.

She told him it was a "Corv... Corv-ette... you know that damn plastic car"

He got it for 500.00 bucks but it was really in bad shape from sitting outside for decades. He planned to restore it but ended up selling it as found for a nice profit.
