1971 Ford Mach 1 Sportsroof

Classic Facts

70,000 original miles... Grabber Yellow repaint when refreshed in 1995 with black & silver sport bucket seat interior... Excellent original miles...

Just arrived, this beautiful Mach 1 Sportsroof is ready for it's new owner... It is very hard to find an original condition, low mile Mach 1. The Marti Report confirms this is M Code, correct colors and factory air conditioning. But what makes this car so special are the factory options below.

Rarely do you see a Mach 1 with this level of options. The Marti Report specifies the car as a 1 of 1 production due to these options. It is becoming increasingly hard to find unmolested, rust free examples.

This car has had was sold new in Illinois in 1971 by Warren Ford. Eight months later, Brian Benick of Schiller Park, Illinois purchased the car fresh out of high school. The car stayed with Brian until his passing in 1995. The car was passed to his son that maintained ownership until purchased by a California dealer in 2013. Brought to Florida last year, we have been refreshing this car for sale including a brand new, complete engine rebuild.

Very well documented car including copy of original title, finance documents, original build sheet, dealer invoice and full Elite Marti Report. We have the original finance contract, protect-o-plate, keys, and a box full of other receipts.

Featured in Mustang Monthly Magazine October 1993, just after Brian completed the five year restoration.

My shop has gone thru all the mechanicals and the car is ready to drive. This is a great color combination and will draw attention wherever you go.

The car has an older repaint when refreshed in 1995. Very nice but not perfect. The Black & Silver sport bucket seat interior is original and in very nice condition for a 44 year old car. The original dash pad and soft trim is in very nice condition. One of the best color combinations...

Ice cold factory air conditioning

Equipped with the newly rebuilt factory 351 M code V-8 engine and original Hurst four speed manual transmission... ($7,500 was spent in 2014 completely rebuilding the engine, receipt included.) Power steering & front disc brakes. This is an option loaded car and rarely do you find a Mach 1 with this level of factory options.
