Weekly Fun Question for 5-07-2011
Good Day:

The Weekly Fun Question (WFQ) is an exercise to give "General" members the opportunity to test their knowledge on information (sometimes obscureSmile) relative to the '71 - '73 Mustangs.

It is also designed to allow the same members the chance to "win" a nice #1 Icon added to their profile when they are the first to provide the desired response. If a general member "wins" on three separate occasions, the member will have his/her membership (a $25.00 value) paid for a VIP subscription. Please note that when you respond to this post, your "answer" will not appear until the end of the current contest (usually at approximately 7:00 P.M. {CST}) the following Monday when the thread is transferred to the "Archives" Forum. The contest will end at approximately 7:00 P.M. on Monday, May 9, 2011.

While VIP members can also "play", their reward is "bragging rights" amongst their peers on the VIP Forum. General members are NOT competing against VIP members in this exercise. VIP members have their very own "contest" which has even more substantive awardsSmile.


The question for this week is on the 1971 Mustang and is:

Please identify the transmission (to include the approximate number) that was most frequently used in the 1971 Mustangs.


Good Luck!


BT
The desired response is the C4 transmission.

There was a total of 80, 459 Mustangs build in 1971 with that particular transmission. As to the rest of the story, there were approximately:

15,960 1971 Mustangs built with the 3 Speed Transmission

8,420 1971 Mustangs built with the 4 Speed Transmission (Closed and Wide Ratios)

24,919 1971 Mustangs built with the FMX Transmission

6,190 1971 Mustangs built with the C6 Transmission
None

Do the RIGHT thing.

We did not have a winner from the general membership.

As noted above, a couple of the VIP members correctly identified the C4 Transmission, but 71 ramair 4-speed mach 1 was the first to provide the correct response to include the exact number of 1971 Mustangs built with the C4 Transmission.

With that, 71 ramair 4-speed mach 1 has earned "bragging rights" for this week's question. Congratulations!!
