Though the 1971 Mustang's wheelbase was only one inch longer than the 1970, every other dimension grew. The Mach 1, available online in the fastback body style, was the designated recipient of the large 429 engine, although the base engine was the small-block 302. The Boss 302 and 429 was dropped in 1971 in favor of the Boss 351. Grandé Mustangs had a vinyl top and Grandé emblems behind the rear window.
