  • Exact to the "T"

    I saw a real one on a Ford dealer showroom floor and told the salesman I had one just like it at home. He didn't believe me, so I went home and got my 1/64th AW model and showed him. This car sold brand new for $2,468.72 in 1971. Now selling for $29,999.00 in 2021...

      What a coincidence! This is part of the reason I like diecast over a lot of more expensive 1/1s. I have this one as well, passed on it at Hobby Lobby for $8.99, found it at Ollie's about a year or two ago for $4. One of my favorites, personally.

      I saw a Grabber Green 1/1 that's sat for years. Been thinking I should try to track down whoever owns it and try to buy it. It would be a pretty fun project. Even though for my use, (somewhat cheaper) 3/4 ton 4x4 pickups or an XJ Cherokee would make more sense; and I already have some examples of those tacked down; one of which is the truck my '98 Dodge Ram replaced; a 1989 Ford F-250. I'll be the third generation to own/drive it. Granddad sold it to Dad when he bought my truck. After buying a 2004 F-250, Dad sold it to some neighbors who really beat the crap out of it. That I'm using as a bargaining chip to try to keep the price cheap (sub-$2500; probably less once I"ve looked it over). It'll need a lot of work, but I've got a pile of parts in the farm shop that goes to that truck.

        Hey Stangfreak? Is that a Explorer behind it? If it is what was the price?

          Was the $2468.72 price at Fast Freddy's Fabulous Ford's in 1971? That was a Fabulous discount price!

          Below is a link with MSRP prices for 1971 Mustangs ($3268 MSRP for a Mach 1 with 351 motor)

          Lots of information for Classic Mustang collectors, restorers or general enthusiasts.



          I saw this Mach 1 several years ago at my local TRU. I talked to the owner and he was going to sell it soon. I can't remember the price he told me, but it was much less than $29,999.00. Granted, that was several years ago, and everything costs more in 2021.

          Strange, but I remember leaving TRU with an Auto World blue Mustang, but it wasn't a 1971 Mach 1.

              Very cool! ‘71-73 is my favorite run of Mustangs. There is a silver on Grabber Blue Mach 1 that occasionally goes by our house out here in the cornfields. Your colors are even more betterer!
