:welcome:from Germany and congratz to your car. 

Would have brought back to original color (girls are ever partial to colors) but nothing bad about a big bad black Mustang. I like it! 

Quite touching, your childhood story... I would do this as well concerning my juniors :thumb:

What are your plans on it? 

Keep us posted and have fun!

hello everybody. I have been a passive viewer of the forum for a while, but am just getting to introducing myself...

my dad received a '71 mach 1 as payment for some concrete work he did when i was about 7 yrs old. He had no need for a muscle car since he was a contractor and only needed more trucks. But his plans to sell the beauty were stopped when I overheard his conversations and offered him everything in my ceramic piggy bank (>$10). Unfortunately I was unable to work on the car until i graduated college, and my first "few" paychecks went into restoring it. Long story short, here we are now, with a Raven Black '71 thicc babe.

OG Color: Grabber Yellow & Black Stripes (gf convinced me to not go back to yellow since all she saw was a highlighter... some regrets, but not many)

Driveline: H-Code 351 Cleveland & C4 auto

Ignition Swapped to MSD Ignition Control Box & Distributor

Doug's Headers & fabricated exhaust

Magnum 500 wheels 

I have many plans for this car so just trying to be a sponge on this forum and absorb as much knowledge/input as possible. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum from North Carolina. I think would have kept the yellow. Several that year in yellow were one off models. I have a black vert and hate the color it is never clean.

Remember that 1971 was only year that black was an option. In 72 & 73 you could get but was a Special Order for paint and trim and cost $86.00 more. I do have a black 73 Special Paint vert. They will have a six digit DSO code and no paint code on the door sticker. Here is Marti for mine. They also had argent front bumper and fillers in front of the rear bumper in 73. For 72 they had chrome bumpers even on a Mach 1 if special paint.
