Bright Lime 1971 Mach 1 Mustang fastback owned by Dewey Castelein from Battle Creek, Michigan. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting March 2, 2014.

It has tilt steering, Rim Blow, fold down rear seat, front and rear spoiler, louvers, Mach 1 stripes, the Boss 351 Ram Air (functional) hood and tail light panel, and LED sequential tail lights. I got the last OEM Ram Air through Ford dealer. I ordered it in 1981 and the Parts Department checked the microfiche and saw that there were only five left in Ford's inventory. When the parts guy started calling for the system, three were already sold. I ordered one and my buddy ordered the other one. One week later, mine showed up but my buddy's never did."
