302 V8, 5 SPEED, AIR COND, FRONT PWR DISCS, SOLID FUN CAR WITH EXC DRIVETRAIN!
Sometimes you just wish you're cool classic was built to be practical to drive anytime, or anywhere, no matter what the month is. Beyond its sporty looks, this 1970 Ford Mustang has been restored to include everything from a five-speed manual transmission, to air conditioning, so you'll want to run it all year long.
The Mustang's styling in 1970 was a unique and aggressive look that was only available that year. Because this is a standout model, most people associate these with the iconic and up-market Mach 1 and Boss cars. The performance image of this super-straight blue coupe is further suggested by the Mach 1's front spoiler, new driving lights, and the vintage looking American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. Usually the Sportsroof cars are the survivors from this era, which makes the coupe body a extra eye-catching. The design lines have matured into something quite special with a hint of flying buttress coming off the rear window.
Inside the sea of blue continues. It has a nice distinctive look because the hue is different from the exterior, but it matches the vinyl on the high back bucket seats, door panels, and dashboard. The steering wheel has the perfect thick wood grip, with the Mustang pony situated in the middle, and the gauges are so clear you can tell it comes from a time before the 55 mph speed limit. All of this is so period correct it could be from a 1970s survivor car, but then you take a closer look. There's an AM/FM/cassette for more modern tunes, a center console with a cup holder (a small detail you love when getting thirsty while cruising all day), and the air conditioner is even running modern R134a coolant for easy servicing. But the upgrade you'll appreciate the most is the Hurst shifter. Between this bold manual transmission and the column-mounted VDO aftermarket tach, anyone peeking into this Mustang will surly start to wonder about the engine.
Lift the hood, and you'll instantly know that this is no ordinary version of Ford's trusty 302 cubic-inch V8. This one was rebuilt 20K miles ago to run with the Boss crowd. The performance upgrades include Holley 600 CFM carburetor, Edelbrock F4b intake manifold, MSD Billet distributor, MSD Street Fire CD ignition, and extra bracing in the engine bay. As expected, it makes an intimidating sound out of the dual exhaust with performance X-pipe. The power is sent to a highly desirable five-speed manual transmission. Not only do you get an extra gear to reach for in this coupe, but it also has been built strong with a completely new clutch kit, including pressure plate, disk, and throw out bearing. The Pro 5.0 shifter is the reason why the Hurst T-bar is needed in the interior. All this power meets the road properly with a well-balanced eight-inch rear end, running a 3.90 ratio. The final piece is an upgraded suspension that includes front disc brakes and modern BF Goodrich T/A rubber for superior grip.
