About

I bought the car 17 years ago from the second owner in Taft Ca. It was Peweter at the time with black trim. Needed lots of help but was a solid car. The owner stuffed a 1971 429 Cobra Jet under the hood cause he had a need for speed. I added ram air, looks like it came from the factory. This was the car he and his wife went on their first date and prom etc...married, they had children and the toys had to go. It took a lot of convencing I wasn't there for a fast turn over. The day the car left the paint and body shop I drove the car to his house. He hadn't seen the car for 10 years. He was surprised at the black paint but did give his approval for the subtle changes I made to the car. I named the car Mr. Ed as the San DiegoMC lumps the big torino based cars in with the 69/70 cars for their shows. I liken to the Mustang placing in the show to Mr. Ed winning the Kentucky Derby. Over the last 4 years my beauty has won or placed no less than 15 awards for her good looks. If you ever see her I hope you agree. Update...the SDMC has consented to creat a class for 1971-73 mustangs. The first showing in Oct of 2008 we had 8 cars, largest turnout ever of the clydsdale cars.Of course the black beast has come away with a first the past two years...

Specs

429CJ, factory w/ Ram Air rated @ 385hp w/ 375 ft lbs of torque. She's never been on the strip, have no idea what times would be.

Factory Options

The usual, power steering, pw breaks, 2 speed window wipers, AC, dual remote mirrors, NASA hood with hood locks, rear spoiler and front air dam. Options that are unusual are electric windows, rear window defogger and factory leather wrapped steering wheel.

Mods

Other than the 429, the car's pretty much stock. These cars front ends always seemed to be raised a bit so I dropped the front 1". She sits on 235 fronts, 255x60x15's rears on Maginum wheels front and rear. Engine is stock 429cj ram air. Plans call for a gear venders unit behind the C6.
