This answer was rated:

I have a 1971 Mustang Mach I w/ 127000 miles, 351 4V, automatic, second owner, interior completely redone recently (almost new, black), it was repainted in 1990's factory color (peuter), some minor fading on trunk and a couple of clear coat issues by door handles, all numbers match, almost rust free, even though it is a driver, it looks like a show car from 10' away, engine compartment area is original and it has some oil leakage, engine area would be next to address even though it looks good for original. no modifications to car (including rims), would be a great candidate for a show car restoration. I am located in Denver, CO but could market to Phoneix or Las Vegas if $ return was justified.

I don't see your question?

I like to use Nada, KBB doesn't go back as far.

Here is the start page for the 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 2 Door Fastback ,

I used the 80201 zip code.

Here are the results.


If you have a 4 speed, ac, ram air or bucket seats it is worth more.

Hello I'm Neal and I am here to help resolve your issue. If I cannot help I will opt out and refer your question to another expert.

How bad are the clear coat issues and fading? You also said it is almost rust free, if it does have some rust, where is it and how bad. Other than the clear coat and fading, was the paint a high quality job? Is it really strait?
