Sound off if you have a 429 / 429 Mustang Roll Call
My Marti report and another great picture.



71 Mach 1 J code - Japanese export
72 Convertible f code - first car
Numerous other Fords
A little late... but I thought I would add my car to this section as it was first rediscovered (poster shot) after year’s of long term hidden away barn storage until 2015. When pulled out from the barn; I then purchased and undertook the extensive three year factory appearance, operation and processes restoration of this rare 1 of 42 produced: J Code convertibles.

My newly acquired 1971 Mach 1 429 Cobra Jet Ram Air. Built for export to the UK where she spent all her life until last week. Now with me in France.

Got a 71 429CJ Mach 1, matching numbers. Power windows, airco etc..
She burned rubber & fuel for the first 20 years in France, then was stored for 20 years here in the Netherlands.

Here last year with her genuine 20 years layer of dust.

Currently under surgery. It will be restored by me with love but not with originality in mind.

Her hart was broken. Not anymore!

(02-27-2014, 02:00 PM)What about a 429 with a F in the vin?Paul of MO Wrote: 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.
