1971 Ford Mustang T5 Mach 1 Fastback Coupe is one of the “Most rare Mustangs in the world”. This 1971 Ford T-5 Mach 1 is one of two ever delivered to Germany from the US. Because of the German copyright protection, Ford opted to call the model a T-5 (from their initial prototype and development project for the Mustang).
In 1971, there were 277 T-5 Fastbacks sent to Germany. Only two were Mach 1’s. One of these cars is believed to be in Europe, however the condition is unknown, or where it is housed. The only other 1971 Fastback T-5 Mach 1 is at CTR Motors. This T-5 is perfectly restored and has a tremendous amount of original documentation.
For those not familiar with this rare classic, here’s the story of the T-5 on Muscle Cars World. Click on Read more to learn it! Because of the large number of military personnel overseas, Ford, like most other manufacturers, exported vehicles for purchase through the military PX system. They encountered a problem with the Mustang. HDK, an European manufacturer of large trucks, had the copyright to the name Mustang for use in Germany. Therefore, before any Mustangs could be exported to Germany, the name had to be changed. Since T5 was the project name of the original Mustang prototype, the Mustangs for export to Germany were renamed T5. New fender emblems were added, and any reference to Mustang on the vehicle was removed. In 1971, 277 T5 Fastbacks were exported to Germany. However, only two were Mach 1′s. It is believed one of the two was destroyed long ago in europe.

Bow? The end result is the same. Defenseless animals being killed by your testosterone!
Your alleged sport of Hockey is for kids. My equal is a two year stint in Nam, in the jungles fighting the gooks, being under water for two days with a bamboo stick as a breathing tube because a Charlie company moved in to our LZ that out numbered us. Now, this is a sport, not some kid hockey game! LOL<... SCJ Mustang, 1965 Olds 4-4-2, and drove the LA streets for six months in a 67 SC Shelby Cobra! Cars and times that you can only dream about, fool! LOL
