In 1971, the Mach 1 started with a base engine of the 302ci based Windsor motor, with a 2 barrel carburettor, followed by four optional 351 Cleveland engines – the 2-V, 4-V, the C.J. (Cobra Jet) and H.O.(BOSS 351). The H.O was cancelled after mid-year 1971, and shortly thereafter the low-compression 351 ‘Cobra Jet’ became available. At the top were two 429ci options, the CJ (Cobra Jet) & SCJ (Super Cobra Jet). Mach 1s, as well as all other Mustang models (except the BOSS 351) were available with the optional CJ and SCJ motors. The SCJ came with a drag pack V or W code rear gears, oil cooler and a different rotating assembly. 429 Super Cobra Jet engines used 780cfm Holley 4-barrel carburettors, while the Cobra Jet engines utilized GM-sourced Rochester Quadra-Jets.
One of the most recognizable features of the ’71-’73 Mustangs is the optional (standard on Boss 351) NACA (NASA) hood with dual scoops. Though available as a visual, non-functional item, they could be made fully functional on models ordered with the Ram Air option, which included vacuum controlled ‘flappers’ at each scoop, and a fiberglass under-hood ‘plenum’ that directed cool, outside air into the carburettor. The ram-air option included a two-tone hood paint treatment in either ‘matte black’ or ‘argent’ (matte silver), coordinated to the colour of the Mach 1 decals and striping. In addition, all Ram Air-equipped Mustangs of this generation came equipped with twist-style, chrome-plated hood lock pins. Our Mustang is in good original conditions, however once repainted about 10 years ago. This beauty, can be viewed in our showroom in Estepona, Spain.
