TRUE 05 CODE MACH 1, MARTI REPORT, NICELY RESTORED, 351CI CLEVELAND V8, AUTO
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 brilliant white 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 and enjoy your sportsroof while it appreciates.
Restored as needed and looking especially racy, 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 searingly bright 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. It's got some very minor signs of use and age on it today, but there's nothing to complain about on this high-impact pony. 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 which makes it a wonderful road machine. The correct Mach 1 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. Add in a correct stripe package, front and rear spoilers, and sport mirrors, and you get what is arguably the best-looking Mustang you can own.
The interior was freshened using accurate reproductions of the Deluxe black vinyl seat covers in conjunction with original door panels. With the Mach 1's mission of being both a performance car and a somewhat luxurious grand tourer, the woodgrained panels for the door panels and dash seem appropriate and there's a matching woodgrained steering wheel as well as a tach on the steering column to augment the original dials. The original AM radio is gone, replaced by a Pioneer AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth head unit that is a big upgrade. The 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 a carpeted mat to help control noise on the road.
The engine is a correct H-code 351 cubic inch V8, which was the base powerplant for the Mach 1. It was luck of the draw whether you got a Windsor or a Cleveland, with this car carrying the more desirable (and far more rare) Cleveland version. Upgraded to a 4-barrel carburetor with matching aluminum intake, it's a fantastic runner, and just because it was standard equipment doesn't mean that performance is lacking. It's nicely finished in Ford Blue with an open-element air cleaner, and a big aluminum radiator to keep it cool. Long-tube headers feed a Flowmaster dual exhaust system, so it has that familiar Mustang sound and the clean floors and original rockers mean this car isn't a rust bucket waiting to break someone's heart. The 3-speed automatic transmission is plenty rugged 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 255/60/15 white-letter radials.
This is a very affordable Mach 1 that can only become more valuable as the years go on. Call today!
