The Most Boring Article You’ll Ever Read About the 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1

There’s not a lot about the 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 you could call boring, but a title generator tool threw this title idea at me, and I liked it, so I’m just going to throw some facts about the ’71 Mach 1 out there. (Hopefully, you won’t actually be too bored.)

Intro to the 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1

In 1971 Mustang models, Ford changed up the design of the Mustang line a bit for the second generation of the Mustang line, making it longer and wider than ’70 Mustangs, creating an illusion that came off as even more low-slung and road-hugging than earlier ‘Stangs.

The 3 Types of ’71 Mustangs

Before I go on to expand on the Mach 1 info, I want to mention there were three types of 1971 Mustangs:

  1. The 1971 Mustang Grande: The Grande was considered the luxury model of this line, and according to My Classic Garage, buyers had more options with the Grande; like a Landau top, power windows, rear window defroster, and any of the available ’71 Mustang engine options.
  2. The 1971 Mustang Mach 1: The Mach 1 had a honeycomb grille, Mach 1 decals on rear and fenders, and it came standard with the base 302cid V-8 Windsor engine and a 2-barrel carb – followed with the 351 Cleveland 2-V, 4-V, CJ (Cobra Jet), SCJ (Super Cobra Jet), and HO.
  3. The 1971 Boss 351: The Boss 351 featured the 351cid V-8 engine that delivered a solid 330-horsepower response when you hit the accelerator.

Now, Back to the Mach 1 Details: The Dual Scoop

There were 36,499 two-door Mustang Mach 1’s produced in 1971.

If you take a look at the hood on the Mach 1, (either one of the images above) you’ll see one of the distinguishing features of second gen Mustangs, the NACA (NASA) dual scoops. 

Some of these dual scoops were decorative-only while others featured a Ram-Air system that let the scoops’ flap open to send cool air to the carb via a fiberglass plenum.

While they were an option on all of the second gen Mustangs, the dual scoops were only standard on the Boss models.

Information on the 1952 Henry J Corsair

As of the time of publishing, the 1952 Henry J Corsair shown in the photos is listed for sale at this link on eBay.

A Brief Intro to the Early Henry J

The Henry J wasn’t in production very long – actually just four short years – though the unsold ’53s were sold off as ’54s to clear the inventory which gave the impression of five years of production (1950-54).

The Kaiser-Frazer Corporation got a federal loan to build the Henry J in 1949 and the cars went into production in Willow Creek, Michigan in 1950.

Naming the Henry J

Henry J’s were the brainchild of the company’s chairman, Henry J Kaiser, and they were also named after him.

Kaiser’s goal in creating them was to create a low-cost car that could compete with Ford for “less affluent buyers.” 

Henry J cars seated five, had to be able to go at least 50-mph to get the federal loan to build them, and were tested on back roads in Arkansas to see how much abuse they could stand up to before being released to the buying public.

(By the way, the ’52 Henry J in the photo has a four-cylinder engine with a manual transmission.)

The 1952 Henry J Corsair

There were three versions of the Henry J sold in the US in 1952, though there were some slight differences and one was sold under a different name.

The one in the pictures is an example of a 1952 Henry J Corsair, and it came with (and has) a four-cylinder engine.

The next was the Henry J Corsair Deluxe, which came with a six-cylinder engine and some changes like a wider grille and changes to the tail lights.

The Little-Known Henry J

The third and lesser-known ’52 Henry J was marketed under a different name and sold by Sears, Roebuck, and Company – the 1952 Allstate. 

It’s hard to tell a ’52 Allstate from a ’52 Henry J Corsair by looking at the body lines, but there are a few differences elsewhere on the vehicles: the Allstate had a different grille, hood ornament, hubcaps, identification badges and interior trim.

The Henry J was never as popular as the company had hoped, and met with disappointing sales with each update and change, but it’s story is an interesting piece of automotive history, and it’s an incredibly rare, edgy, and eye-catching vehicle that’s getting harder and harder find in today’s collector car market.

Info on The 1972 Dodge Challenger

As of the time of publishing this article, the gorgeous 1972 Dodge Challenger shown in the pictures was listed for sale on eBay.

The 1972 Dodge Challenger

When Chrysler introduced the 1972 Dodge Challenger to the world, it had the same classic, sleek first generation Challenger body lines that earlier Challenger models had, but it had been redesigned on a few key features to give it a fresh look.

1972 Dodge Challenger

One of the first design changes that updated the look of the ’72 Challenger is found right out front – the headlights and grille were no longer encased in one long, oval section.

’72 Challenger Grille and Headlight Changes

While the outline of the long, oval shape still framed the headlights and grille of the Dodge Challenger in the 1972 models, as you can see in the images above and below, the grille had a trapezoid  form that was clearly separated in ’72 and the dual headlights peered out from under the slight overhang of the fenders and hood.

The Redesigned Rear View of the 1972 Challenger

You can’t really see this feature in the image of the Mopar below because the tail lights slipped into the shadows in the pic, but according to Old Rides, Dodge changed the taillights on the 1972 Challenger from previous years.

1972 Dodge Challenger

In 1972 models, Dodge Challenger tail lights were no longer a one piece unit with a clear lens sporting a Dodge logo joining the ends – they were divided and separated in a more modern, edgy style.

’72 Challenger Engine Options

Three different engine options were offered in ’72 Challengers:

  • The six-cylinder 225 that boasted 119 horsepower and a TorqueFlight 3-speed manual transmission.
  • The eight-cylinder 318 that featured 150 HP and the option of a TorqueFlight 3-speed or 4-speed manual tranny.
  • The eight-cylinder 340 that wowed with a powerful 240 horsepower and a TorqueFlight 3-speed or 4-speed manual transmission.
  • (The Challenger in the pictures has the 8-cyl 340 engine under its hood.)

Info on the 1960’s Chevy CK Trucks

By: Laure Justice

With a few 1960’s CK trucks listed on the Classifieds page today, I thought I would add some basic information about them.

1967 Chevy CK

1967 Chevrolet CK image by dave_7 from Lethbridge, Canada (1967 Chevrolet truck) [CC BY 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

1964 Chevy CK Trucks

The first Bowtie truck listed is a project truck that needs a complete rebuild. That’s not all bad, it can give you something to do for a hobby or a bonding project with your kid.

  • The 1964 CK1500 was part of the first generation of Chevrolet C/K trucks, which ran from 1960 through 1966.
  • There were a few changes on the ’64 CK: the wraparound windshield was flattened out and lost a little width, the grill was redesigned, and there were some small changes in the interior design, while the body style remained unchanged.

1967 Chevy C/K Trucks

1967 ushered in the second gen of C/K trucks from Chevrolet, like the one featured in the Classified section here today. These “Action Line” trucks had some extra comfort and convenience features as GM started to move them away from the work-truck theme and into the everyday driver/commuter line-up. Some changes for ’67 included:

  • Body sheet metal that wasn’t supposed to rust as easily as previous models.
  • A coil spring trailing arm suspension replaced traditional leaf springs, as an option, for a smoother ride.
  • It was the only year that featured the smaller rear window.

While not originally intended to be covered in this article – here are the basics on the third and fourth gen Chevy CK trucks – because it would seem incomplete and kind of wrong to leave them out without a mention. The third generation of C/Ks started in 1973 and ran through 1987. The fourth generation CKs were produced from 1988 until 1998.

1966 Corvette and 1968 Olds 442 Barn Finds (and a Maverick)

It’s not hard for a car lover to appreciate the allure of a great barn find, so it’s really easy to imagine how awesome it would be walking into a dusty barn and finding not one, but multiple cool classics covered in dust.

1966 Corvette and 1968 Olds 442 Barn Finds

1966 Corvette and 1968 Olds 442 Barn Finds

1966 Corvette and 1968 Olds 442 Barn Finds

Check out the video below to see footage of these amazing barn finds from Jim’s Rare Barn Finds.

The transcript of the video is posted in the comments below this article.

1966 Chevy Corvette

The convertible ’66 Vette in the video has been sitting since 1974. It’s got the original paint and a factory big block 427 CID, 425 horsepower engine, and it only has 35,000 actual miles.

A total of 27,720 Corvettes were built in 1966. Of those, according to Vette Facts, 17,762 were convertibles and 9,958 were coupes

The original color options for a ’66 Vette were:

  • Tuxedo Black
  • Ermine White (This is what’s shown in the video – and only 2,120 were produced in this color.)
  • Rally Red
  • Nassau Blue
  • Laguna Blue
  • Trophy Blue
  • Mosport Green
  • Sunfire Yellow
  • Silver Pearl
  • Milano Maroon

1968 Oldsmobile 442

This barn find ’68 Olds 442 hasn’t moved since 1974, and it just got its first washing since 1974, too. It’s only got 15,000 miles on it, and its one owner bought it new. The interior looks like brand new, and it has all original paint.

1968 was the first year of the second generation of 442s, and just over 33,000 were produced. (I couldn’t find anything that said how many of those 33,000 were produced in this color.)

When the 442 package made its debut on the F-85 Cutlass lineup in 1964, the numbers stood for (4) four-barrel carburetor, (4) four-speed manual transmission, and (2)dual exhaust – but by the time the 1968 Olds 442 shown here rolled off the assembly line, the model had separated from the Cutlass line and the name had emerged to stand for (4) 400 cubic-inch engine,  (4) four-speed manual transmission, and (2) dual exhaust.

The original color choices for the 442 in 1968 were:

  • Ebony Black
  • Cinnamon Bronze
  • Twilight Teal
  • Provincial White
  • Flambeau Burgundy
  • Sapphire Blue
  • Ivory
  • Nocturne Blue
  • Silver Beige
  • Teal Frost
  • Willow Gold (This is the color of the 442 shown here.)
  • Jade Gold
  • Ocean Turquoise
  • Buckskin
  • Silver Green
  • Scarlet
  • Juneau Gray
  • Saffron
  • Peruvian Silver

Ford Maverick

The last car shown in the video was a Ford Maverick, covered in a layer of dust just like the others, and it looked like it was a great shade of blue. After looking through a LOT of pictures trying to ID it a little more precisely for this article, my best guess is it was a ’72 or ’73 Grabber, but there were so many similarities between the years, I’ll just leave it to any Maverick fans out there to decide.

Info on the 1964 Dodge Dart GT Convertible

Some 1964 Dodge Dart Convertibles were released with a special golden anniversary trim package that included gold welt on the seats and gold-toned emblems to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Dodge Company. Read on for some more info on these unique convertibles.

1964 Dodge Dart GT Convertible

By: Laure Justice

Third Gen Darts

The two-door ’64 Dodge Dart was part of the third generation of Darts offered by the company, and it featured slightly rounded, more aerodynamic lines than previous generations of the Dart.

“Small” V-8 Engine

The ’64 Dart came with a 273 V-8 engine and a 2 barrel Carter BBD carburetor. This “small” V-8 provided the Dart with a top speed of around 108 miles per hour and fuel consumption from a low of 11.3 mpg in the city and a high of 21.7 for extra-urban driving.

Curb Weight of the ’64 Dodge Dart Convertible

According to the Automobile Catalog website, the ’64 Dart Convertible weighed in at 3053 pounds (That’s curb weight, which means that’s what this Dart weighed without a driver.)

Push Button Automatic or Manual Transmission

This car is also listed as having come with a four-speed manual transmission, but as a side note, I had one of these golden anniversary edition Dodge Darts, back in the day, so to speak, and it had a push-button automatic transmission.

I hope you enjoyed this short review of the 1964 Dodge Dart Convertible.

Buick Le Sabre: Riding Through the Years

Buick Le Sabre: Riding Through the Years

by: Sarah McBride

1959 Buick LeSabre image by User ChiemseeMan (Späth Chr.) on de.wikipedia (Own work) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

1959 Buick LeSabre image by User ChiemseeMan (Späth Chr.) on de.wikipedia (Own work) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

From the Buick division of General Motors, the Buick Le Sabre is a full size car. This vehicle has been considered as the entry level full size Buick for many years. It actually holds the lowest base price in the whole line up of vehicles from this vehicle brand. This vehicle was actually introduced in 1959 with three other names from the same brand which included the Invicta, the Electra, and the Electra 225. However, that was introduced so as to change and replace the line of models under the name of the Buick Special. The Buick Le Sabre was the only vehicle among its batch mates to last the longest. This vehicle has been made available with just the full body style previously however starting 1977, it has then been offered only as pillared coupe sedans and wagons. To add to the feather of its brand, the Buick Le Sabre has consistently been ranking among the world’s best selling full size cars.

The Buick Le Sabre has certainly been living long enough in the automobile world so as to be considered one of the classics. In fact, this vehicle has still continuously held its exotic design and style that is very much unmatched at present. It still holds the motif that its designer, Harvey J. Earl, had bestowed upon it.

As per talk on its engine, the Buick Le Sabre holds a 215 cubic inch V8 engine that is ventilated by some 90 degrees. There are opposed valves in hemispherical chambers here that are quite one of the very best in the automobile and engine technology. Even if this set up is modern, it is still operated though by a dose of the old technology of pushrods from a single camshaft suspended under the intake manifold. Thus, it could be construed that the Buick Le Sabre is a living example of bringing the old and the new together working in harmony.

Looking at the features of the Buick Le Sabre, this vehicle holds much. The list of features includes a four speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with overdrive, four wheel anti lock disc brakes, a four wheel independent suspension with automatic rear level control, driver and right front passenger air bags and side impact air bags, an outside rearview mirror that is power heated and is body colored, daytime running lamps, intermittent windshield wipers, a moisture-sensing intermittent front wipers, a remote electric dual mirrors, a remote keyless entry system, and a steering wheel with mounted radio controls among many others.

This online store has a vast array of well crafted Buick parts and auto parts to choose from its online collection. http://www.autopartsdeal.com is available 24 hours a day to serve the most demanding needs for Buick auto parts.

Through the Centuries with the Buick Century

Through the Centuries with the Buick Century

1936 Buick Century Sedan Series 60 image by Sicnag (1936 Buick Series 60 Century Sedan) [CC BY 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Under the umbrella of the General Motors, the Buick Motor Division is very much responsible for the Buick Century. This model of vehicles is a line of full size performance vehicles that had ran from 1936 to 1942 as well as in 1954 to 1958. The vehicle brand, Buick, also used the name Buick Century in 1973 to 2004 for its value-added intermediate line of cars.

The very first time that the Buick Century made its way on the automotive jungle, this vehicle actually took the place and niche of the Buick Series 60. This happened when the Buick division decided to rename the whole model line up for the 1936 model year. This was due to the celebration of engineering improvements and design advancements. What actually happened to the Buick Century was that it was a combination and concoction of the shorter Buick Special bodies’ wheelbase to the Buick’s engine that holds eight cylinders. During this era, the Buick Century was actually the fastest in its brand line up. It was capable of performing under sustained speeds. Because of this fact, the vehicle was dubbed as the “banker’s hotrod”.

1957 Buick Century 4 Door Hardtop

The most recent Buick Century has been constructed to be a midsize sedan. It sports the look that has been compared to an elegant maiden that has beautiful features wrapped in fine simplicity which is a very uplifting description indeed. The Buick Century exudes also a look that says elegance and sophistication. It certainly is one vehicle that stands out from among its competitors. Its ride quality is very much outstanding. It provides a very soft, smooth and quiet performance. And through all these, it also gives its driver and its passenger’s utmost and great care, comfort, and convenience during the ride.

Before any great changes were done, the Buick Century came simply with a longer intermediate front wheel drive system. It also was offered as a couple, sedan, and station wagon although the latter was crossed out from the list later on. It holds grilles, turn signals, airbags for the driver’s side, body colored rub strips, a traction control, a tire inflation monitor, suspension, and side moldings. It also previously held a V6 engine with engine coolant that was guaranteed to last for five years.

1973 Buick Century GS

1973 Buick Century GS image by Someguy1991 at English Wikipedia (Transferred from en.wikipedia to Commons.) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

This vehicle is mostly appealing to people who are more leaning towards old-fashioned bench seats. It also is a good means of transportation for it has the capacity to take in a maximum of six adults in its cabin. It also holds the typical Buick luxury plus some added features like a keyless entry system, a dual zone climate control, programmable door locks, as well as a CD player. Rumors have it that the Buick Century is nearing another complete overhaul.

To preserve the amazing performance and luxury of the Buick Century as well as other Buick vehicles, a one of a kind online store is able to provide customers with super durable Buick parts with an equally impressive performance. Interested parties can simply visit http://www.accessoriesgiant.com. It is a hassle free online store for shopping for auto parts that will make the Buick Century live up to its name.
