    I do not own a 1971-1973 Ford Mustang, but am requesting admission to the forum so that I can learn about these cars.
    I own 6 1967 FoMoCo products: 5 1967 Ford full-size cars, and 1 1967 Meteor (a product of Ford Motor Company of Canada, Ltd.).

  1. pheonix75, Your 1971 Ford Mustang SportsRoof, VIN 1F02H131846, was a Special Paint Order (SPO) car, meaning that it was painted a non-standard (i.e. non-1971 Mustang) paint color when it was built on Friday, November 6, 1970 at the Dearborn Assembly Plant. It was painted under special order number 1495 out of the Los Angles, California District Sales Office. Based on your description, it sounds like your Mustang may have been painted Medium Blue Metallic, which was COL code Q on the 1971 Ford, Maverick, Torino, and Thunderbird lines.

  3. Folks, The 1,865 Ford Mustangs produced during the 1971 model year with the C-code 429 CJ & SCJ non-Ram Air engines and the J-code 429 CJ & SCJ Ram Air engines were built between August 3, 1970 and August 5, 1971 - the entire 1971 model year. Similarly, the 449 Mercury Cougars produced during the 1971 model year with the C-code 429 CJ non-Ram Air engine and the J-code 429 CJ Ram Air engine were built between August 3, 1970 and August 3, 1971 - the entire 1971 model year. Yours in old Ford iron, Adrian
  4. Folks, This looks like another case where the Car Facts binder and actual Ford assembly plant practices disagree. Of the 79 Mustang Mach 1's with Q-code 351CJ Ram Air engines built during the 1971 model year, ALL of them had a 3.50:1 rear axle ratio. 52 of these 79 had the A-code rear axle (indicating a 3.50:1 non-locking unit), and 27 of the 79 had the S-code rear axle (indicating a 3.50:1 locking unit). The presence (or absence) of factory air conditioning made no difference, nor did the transmission type (4-speed manual or C6 3-speed automatic). Here are the build numbers broke
