Outstanding Fully Documented 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 Fastback
New to our Benicia showroom is this outstanding 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 2 Door Fastback with a factory 351 cid V-8 engine (4V), a numbers-matching four speed wide ratio manual transmission, a Hurst shifter, power front disc brakes, dual ram induction, competition suspension, a 3.91 rear axle with traction lock differential, an upgraded cooling package and Magnum 500 chrome wheels. The exterior is light Pewter Metallic with black racing stripes and a very rare Ginger Ruffino interior with high back bucket seats and this amazing muscle car is in exceptional factory condition after a multi-year restoration effort. With a mere 50k lifetime miles and excellent lifetime documentation, this is one of the most impressive examples we’ve seen in quite some time.
Numbers Matching Engine, Transmission, Rear End, Carburetor & More
The current owner of this 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 Fastback informs us that he has documentation and receipts dating all the way back to when this sensational muscle car was new, along with mileage docs back into the 1980’s. Only 1,806 examples were produced with this drivetrain configuration and 109 with this rare paint/trim package. We also have a Marti Report on file along with the factory invoice, the factory user guide and manual, plus hundreds of service receipts from over the years.
Additionally, this 1971 Mustang Boss 351 Fastback underwent a complete rotisserie restoration back in the early 2000’s with every component being restored or replaced back to OEM standards. The current owner has a CD full of pictures and receipts from the build and he informs us that the drivetrain, carburetor, suspension and rear end are all still original. Likewise, it still sits on the original frame with all factory body panels and trim to the exterior, with only a select few interior pieces being replaced to keep it at show quality levels.
Completely Restored in Early 2000’s to Show-Quality Standards
Shortly after being fully restored, this 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 Fastback was featured on the cover of Mustang Monthly magazine in January of 2002. It has been driven a negligible amount since that time and the condition is still exceptional and bordering on like-new throughout. The well-sorted engine compartment shows no real signs of wear and runs flawlessly with a great note coming from the exhaust. The exterior, interior and undercarriage are just as impressive with only the slightest of visible imperfections. Although no classic muscle car is ever considered “perfect”, the attention to detail on this example makes it come exceedingly close throughout.
Out on the open road, few classics can impress the way that this 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 does. The factory upgraded suspension hugs the road as if it’s floating on air. The horsepower and torque to the wheels are excellent and this one gets down the road in a hurry. The overall ride quality is exceptional at virtually any speed.
Featured on Mustang Monthly Cover in January 2002
Overall, this 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 Fastback is one of the nicest original muscle cars we’ve come across in years and the outstanding documentation and low mileage clearly places this one in a class of its own. Combined with the rare factory interior trim, you simply will not find a more desirable, better maintained example anywhere in the continental US at this time at any asking price- there’s no way this one lasts for long on the open market.
