Ford Mustang Mach 1/Cobra-Jet/Boss 302/Shelby 1965-73 market review 2020

Mustangs with genuine muscle car credentials remain easily found but they are no longer inexpensive. A 351-engined 1971-73 Mach 1 with the near-horizontal ‘Sportsroof’ rear might sell below $50,000 but the same car in ‘Boss 351’ guise is worth $80,000.

1969-70 models with small-block motors routinely reach $70,000 and will top $100,000 with a 428 cubic-inch Cobra-Jet crammed under their bonnets. Spend just a little more on a Boss 302 or a whole lot more ($300,000+) for one with a 429 cubic inch engine.

Australia isn’t home to a lot of Shelby-modified Mustangs and 1965-66 cars look expensive when compared with similar cars in the US market. Later versions of the GT350 and 428 cubic inch GT500 more closely reflect the money being paid by North American owners.

Mach 1 1969-70 $89,900 [6]

Mach 1 1971-73 $57,300 [8]

Mach 1 Cobra-Jet $111,750 [4]

Boss 302 $121,535 [10]

Shelby GT350 1965-66 $320,000 [1]

GT350/GT500 1967-70 $182,250 [4]
