Wheels Magazine 1971 Mustang Review
#1
I saw a copy of March 1971 Wheels Magazine (an Aussie publication) on ebay and bought it for 10 bucks so I could read the 1971 Mustang review. Thought it might be good to put up on the forum for those who might be interested in reading a non-US view of our cars. (if the writings too small then click the images to enlarge)

Bloody cool mate!

Any Americans out there can reply with some aussie speak gets a cookieSmile

I love how they say the original tyres are "Massive". They are like pencils today. And the "steal it" price? 14K??? Aussies have been getting ripped off for a looooooooooooong time I seeSad

G'day mates. Looks like this American impressed our friends down under. I am glad they indicated this body style impressed them more than the earlier models. The "NART" bonnet scoops with the Goodyear boots is a bit off the American translations.

If they only knew then what they do now about "low profile" "boots".
And then there's the price, wouldn't that have been supercar teritory back in the day 14k?

As for price, the new Mustang is around 100K here for the base V8, and 150ish for the GT500.
