Sweet 71 Mach1 429 Cobra Jet on Ebay

71 429 Cobra Jet Ram Air #'MATCHING Nut & Bolt Rotisserie Restoration

$46,895.00 OBO

It had a 4 speed I'd seriously be looking at getting more information and possibly making an offer. Of course after asking for the site's feedback on it, you guys catch stuff I look right over.

Very nice car. I did notice it was originally equipped with very rare 15" sport wheel covers - not Magnums.
I wish the seller would have mentioned... But it is shown by the documents provided.

Appears to be a very well done restoration.

It does have fitment issues in the body but, it does say "restoration" and not restomod where you would work the panels to fit better than factory. And it is not outrageously priced for numbers matching. Also I love the color

I notice it has the rubber bellows in the door opening hinge area, although it's an AM Radio car with no door speakers?

I was wondering what that was, great catch. I can see where at some time an owner might update the radio and add door speakers and then it converted back to the one speaker AM system for sale to make it match the Marti...but would they have went so far as to add the rubber bellows with the updated radio? Or did it originally come with the bellows indicating the VIN doesn't match the car being sold.

If it had a 4 speed I'd still be interested but that would be a piece of data I'd explore further prior to making an offer.

Great example of the details that effect the overall feelings of potential buyers. These little things cause us to question the car. If a seller wants to get top dollar - all these 'bugs' have to be addressed.
It is a really nice car - no doubt.

It's to bad the fender to hood alignment is so bad for how nice the rest of the car is.

Is it just me, or did the door tag with the VIN look TOO good?

And the tire pressure sticker...is it in the right place?
