Ford Mustang Mach 1/Cobra-Jet/Boss 302/Shelby 1965-73

Mustangs built at the peak of Muscle Car activity make great sense for anyone keen on fun and ensuring their investment carries minimal risk. Cheapest in this group but among the most striking are 1971-73 Mach 1 cars with almost flat Sportsroof styling.

More costly but a favourite of collectors across the world are Cobra-Jet Mach 1s that currently cost $100-120,000 in Australia and US$55-70,000 in their homeland.

Boss 302 prices have climbed as well and that’s also in line with the money available at North American sales.

The market for Shelby Mustangs in this country is small so the increased number of cars on offer was encouraging. Money being asked was fair as well.

Mach 1 1971-73 $51,725 [10]

Mach 1 Cobra-Jet $114,415 [6]
