Description for Ford Mustang 1970
Glance at the Mustang market and you'll see what's going on. Shelbys are already priced out-of-sight, the Boss 429s are right behind, and the Boss 302 is on its way to six-figure territory. That leaves the Mach 1 as the Next Big Thing in the Mustang world, so get a good one like this cool white 1970 Mach 1 and enjoy your sportsroof Mustang while it appreciates.Restored to its original specs, someone knew this Mach 1 would be worth more in stock condition rather than dressed up and retooled as someone's fantasy car. As a result, the code M Wimbledon White paint was expertly mixed up and applied to the car's sheetmetal skin, albeit rendered in modern materials to give it a fantastic shine. The bodywork is quite good and you won't be ashamed to pull this one into the local cruise night, but it's not so nice that you'll be afraid to drive it so it's still a wonderful road machine. The blacked-out hood with scoop, the hood pins, the subtle kick-up on the tail, and matching finned lower cladding all make the '70 Mustang Mach 1 one of the best-looking ponies ever built. A few chrome bits took a trip to the plating shop, so they're bright and shiny, and correct decals and emblems were installed to complete the restoration.The interior was correctly restored using accurate reproductions of the original black vinyl seat covers. With the Mach 1's mission of being both a performance car and a somewhat luxurious grand tourer, the woodgrained panels for the dash seem appropriate and there's a handsome center console with some extra storage and an armrest, all nicely finished, of course. A fat wood-rimmed steering wheel works well with the overall look without calling too much attention to itself and the Hurst cue ball knob for the 4-speed manual transmission falls to hand easily. Just ahead of it is the original AM radio which isn't working, so that might be a good place for an easy upgrade, but that's just about the only thing that isn't working on this car. The optional fold-down back seat makes this almost a practical muscle car with room for two real-sized people or a few weeks' worth of gear. Pop the deck lid and you'll find a tidy trunk with no stories to scare away a new owner.The engine is a correct H-code 351 cubic inch V8, which was the base powerplant for the Mach 1. But just because it was standard equipment doesn't mean that performance is lacking. In fact, the lightweight small block makes this Mach 1 an adept corner carver and still delivers plenty of low-end torque to dig out of turns. It's nicely finished in Ford Blue and has been upgraded with an Edelbrock intake, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, and a Mallory distributor so it really runs strong. It's been extensively and recently serviced so it runs great and needs nothing to be enjoyed immediately. Thanks to a reproduction exhaust system, it has a ripping exhaust note that every Mustang fan will recognize. There's a new clutch ahead of the 4-speed and with highway-friendly gears in the 9-inch rear end, it strikes just the right balance between acceleration and easy cruising. Beautiful Magnum 500 wheels look exactly right on the Mach 1, and wear 215/70/15 redline radials.Coming from long-term ownership, this is a very affordable real-deal Mach 1 that can only become more valuable as the years go on.
