1 of only 69 with Ram Air shaker hood option, documented by the Marti Report! Very desirable, VIN # matching M code 351 motor too. Overall good looking solid car. It is a rare muscle car that is affordable, it can easily be brought to the next level.

EXTERIOR: It is a great looking, sloped roof design. The body is laser straight, the panels and gaps fit together nicely and look proper. That shaker scoop sticking through the opening in the hood is why I bought this car! It also has the .....
optional color keyed racing mirrors. Great looking color, the metal flake is laid out evenly and the clear coat is glossy. The trim appears original and shows well. The glass is also good original. It is sitting pretty on a set of chrome 15 inch Magnum wheels.

INTERIOR: Bucket seats and a console! Overall good condition. The upholstery looks great, carpet is like new, dash cap was installed. The instrument panel is not cut up, it has original radio. It has an oil and voltage gauge under the dash. A new steering wheel and some detailing on the console would improve things. Door panels are in good shape.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Under the hood you'll find a true M-code 351-300 hp Cleveland motor. These are great motors and feature 11:1 compression, a great new head design, a 4 barrel carb, and this one has the optional ram air. Better yet this one is original VIN number matching to this car! Overall, it is complete: squirters and horns are hooked up, it has correct fan shroud etc. The engine bay is all clean metal. It is a presentable correct engine bay.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The trunk is very spacious. Under the trunk lid and jambs are painted nice and glossy. The entire trunk was painted in the green metallic as well. It's fitted with a trunk liner mat, and a spare tire!

UNDERSIDE: Look at how dry the undercarriage is! Clean southern undercarriage is always a plus when it comes to older cars. The front steering and suspension look to be in good shape along with the rear suspension as well. It has disc brakes in front and drum in rear. Again, everything is very clean looking free of debris and grime. The dual exhaust system is fitted with glass pack mufflers and in good shape. Looking up at the engine it is clean, has correct fuel pump and a high torque starter. It has the correct C6 select shift auto trans and it looks fresh. It has the correct 3.25 rear axle. The floors look very clean as well as the frame rails and everything is painted nicely in satin black.

SERVICE: Through our on-site shop inspection the following issues were corrected, replaced, or repaired. Carb was rebuilt along with timing set properly. The alternator was replaced. The wiring was fixed for the windshield wipers, turn signals, and blower control resistor. The temperature gauge was replaced, and all the gauges including clock are functional.

Documented 1 of 69 made, how many exist? You might be looking at the only one! It is a good base, with some tinkering you can bring this car to the next level and really have something to be proud of. VIN #s match motor is rarer than you think in a performance Ford, most of the Mach-1s and even the Shelbys we sell do not have matching motors.

A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
