Old-School Fun

Mustang Monthly - - READERSÕALBUM -

Martin Comey of Chelms­ford, Es­sex, Eng­land, is a long­time reader of Mus­tang Monthly and heeded our call for Read­ers’ Al­bum en­tries on Mus­tang-360. com. His ’71 Mach 1 def­i­nitely has an old-school build vibe, and that’s ex­actly what Martin was go­ing for. Pow­ered by a 429 CJ R-code that dis­places 466 ci, the 385 Se­ries big-block fea­tures tra­di­tional bolt-on bits like an Of­fen­hauser in­take, Holley four­bar­rel, Hooker head­ers, and so on. Backed by a Hurst-shifted Top Loader and a 3.91-geared 9-inch, we can imag­ine how much fun this beast must be on those nar­row Eng­land roads! All those bits are stuffed into a mod­i­fied chas­sis run­ning lad­der bars, coilover shocks, wheel-tubs, and a 7-point ’cage, with most of the work done by Martin him­self.
