My husband has wanted a classic mustang for awhile. He has a birthday coming up and I have been searching for him a nice one, but on a tight budget. I know that work might be involved and that is ok to stay within budget and make it what he wants. At first I was looking at the 76 and 77 models and found out they were not so great, then moved to 1970-73 Mustang Mach 1's. I have found 2 in this area - one is a 1971 351 - they said it was a Mach 1 but has the Boss 351 decals on it that all look original making me think it is maybe a Boss 351 and not a Mach. Are there other ways to tell for sure? This one I could buy for maybe 3000-4000. It needs some things but is in excellent original condition. The next one I found a friend has it is a 73 Mach 1, all original, 351w. It will not start and has sat awhile. The body and everything is original. Has a few rust bubbles at fender well at back, interior needs to be redone, engine and trans probably gone through but can buy for 2000. What are your guys thoughts on these? Thanks so much!
