SHARP MACH 1 W/ A 351 CLEVELAND V8, 4 SPEED MANUAL, FRONT DISCS, LOADS OF FUN!
This is just a great-looking, great-driving 1970 Mach 1. That's it. Well, actually, that's quite a bit, because it's also one of the most popular pony cars of all time and this particular pony offers some well-chosen upgrades that don't dilute the original spirit yet enhance the driving experience in a big way.
Bright yellow was one of the more popular colors in 1970 and as a result, this Mach 1 looks pretty authentic. The paint is a few years old and while they were doing it, they replaced the rear quarter, which seems to have aged a little differently than the rest of the bodywork. It's not that noticeable, but if you want perfection, fresh paint would be a wise investment. Nevertheless, the kick-up behind the doors, the pointed hood with a built-in scoop, and a deep chin spoiler all work together to make this car aggression on four wheels. With proper stripes running along the hood, the ribbed rocker moldings, and Mach 1 callout on the rear fascia, there's no question what model this is. Out back, you get the honeycomb rear panel, classic three-element taillights, and a deck lid spoiler that looks better here than on just about anything else with a wing this side of an F-14. They kept the chrome bumpers, so there's a bit of sparkle at both ends, and window slats are always welcome on a fastback Mustang.
Mustangs offered a great driving environment, and this car comes complete with Comfort-Weave bucket seats (in black, of course) and a center console. The seat covers and door panels might be original or older replacements, and the carpets are in excellent condition. The stock instruments are in excellent condition, and they're joined by auxiliary dials down on the console, so you can monitor the warmed-over 351 under the hood. The 4-speed Hurst shifter (with T-handle shifter) falls easily to hand and feels natural the first time you drive it, and the woodgrained accents on the console and door panels are part of the Mach 1's upscale sport theme. A modern AM/FM stereo has been stuffed in the original radio's location and the factory wood-rimmed steering wheel is in excellent condition. The trunk is finished with some sound insulation material and what appears to be an original space-saver spare, a rather rare find all by itself.
The engine is a great-running 351 cubic inch Cleveland V8. Originally a 428 car, the Cleveland probably makes nearly as much power with far less weight over the nose, so it's a tidy handler. With a lopey cam inside, the small block is an outstanding runner, particularly with an Edelbrock intake manifold, a 4-barrel carb up top, and that functional Shaker hood scoop. With the finned Mickey Thompson valve covers and bright yellow wires, it has a '60s performance look and it really is a neat fit in the Mustang's engine bay. Backed by a 4-speed and a 9-inch rear, you don't need to worry about romping around with your foot on the loud pedal, especially since you've got front disc brakes to help keep you out of trouble. A reproduction exhaust system gives it that traditional Mustang sound and Centerline aluminum wheels are a direct bolt-on. Thanks to those modern hoops, it also carries grippy 215/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear performance radials that elevate the car's performance in a big way.
Full of potential, this Mach 1 doesn't worry about pedigrees as much as having fun and looking great. This is an affordable way to enjoy Ford's most in-demand pony car. Call today!
