Random Car Wednesday: 1971 Ford Mustang
Welcome to another installment of RCW. This time around, let's look at some classic American muscle. This is a 1971 Ford Mustang. It's a base model, not a Mach 1 or Boss 351, but it's still a very handsome machine. This is a "Sportsroof" model, which was the official terminology for a fastback roof way back in '71. This car stands out because of its simplicity. It's not stock, as evidenced by the shiny chrome wheels and some subtle interior modifications, but it's not extensively modified either. It's a car that somebody enjoys and drives regularly. I'd imagine the mileage isn't too great, but in a car like this it's a price worth paying. If I were going to drive it, I'd probably swap the grille for the sportier Mach 1 version with the turn indicators in the grille. It looks a tiny bit meaner, a look this car could pull off easily.
