  • Ford Mustangs grew to their all-time largest for the 1971 model year. Wheelbase was up an inch to 109, length increased 2.1 inches to 189.5 and width grew 2.4 to 74.1. The latter was accompanied by a tread increase to allow the 429 cid big-blocks to fit with ease.

  • For 1971, Ford completed its fourth Mustang redesign, creating a bigger car. It had the basic Mustang look, with a longer wheelbase, stretched length, more width, wider front and rear track and heavier curb weight. A raked windshield, bulging front fenders and aerodynamic enhancements were evident.

  • 1969 was the second major restyle for the Mustang. Every dimension increased with the exception of wheelbase (it remainedat 108 inches) and height, which was lowered by 1 1/2 inches.

    Including the two Boss engines, there was a total of ten differentengines available. Headlight configuration for the first time went to four, four-inch units. The fastback body style, called SportsRoof, came with simulated rear side scoops and a spoilered rear. Convertibles and hardtops used a simulated rear quarter panel vent.
