F-CODE 302 V8, AUTO, DUALS, PWR FRNT DISC, PWR STEERING, CUSTOM METALFLAKE PAINT
Just when you thought all the affordable Mustangs were gone, this 1970 Ford Mustang coupe shows up with potent V8 power and a great high-performance look. With the fastbacks getting all the coverage, this coupe will stand out at any show and still offers the same great driving experience that all vintage Mustangs deliver.
Red always looks good on a Mustang, and with a repaint just a few years ago, this Brandywine coupe has a lot of style. The coupe neatly blends the aggressiveness of the fastback with a more conservative look, creating a car that looks fast but fits in anywhere. Paint and bodywork are nicely done, and this has never been a rusty car, so the sheetmetal is straight and it has a nice shine. Gaps are good, panel alignment is straight, and it's clear someone took their time putting it together. They didn't bother with stripes or other paint tricks, but it does have a chin spoiler, hood scoop, and rear wing to make it look aggressive. A lot of Mustang enthusiasts will argue that the front-end of the 1970 models was the best ever fitted to Ford's pony car, and there's simply no angle from which this car doesn't look good. It's got a clean, smooth look that's very appealing. Chrome trim is a combination of excellent original stuff and restored items, adding just enough flash to retain the 1960s look.
The interior is mostly original with a few upgrades that make it a lot of fun to drive. The high-back buckets wear what might very well be the original black vinyl seat covers, and aside from some wear on the driver's outer bolster, they're in good overall shape. The door panels are also probably original, showing faux wood inserts that make the Mustang feel upscale, and there's an aftermarket center console in the middle, complete with a pair of cup holders. The factory gauges in their deeply inset panel are all fully functional and are visible through the spokes of a custom Grant GT steering wheel with a matching black leather rim. The original radio is gone, replaced by an AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo head unit that fits in the original radio's slot without modifications, and new Mustang-logo floor mats have been installed to protect the carpets. The trunk has been freshened with gray mouse fur upholstery that is a bit more upscale than the original mats and gives it a polished look.
The engine is an F-code 302 cubic inch V8, which is how this car came from the factory. Originally fitted with a 2-barrel carburetor and rated at 220 horsepower, it's significantly more muscular today thanks to a Summit Racing aluminum intake manifold, Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, and long-tube headers. A big chrome air cleaner announces the upgrades pretty clearly, and things like the valve covers and shock tower brace are chrome, so it has a great look. It's linked to a C4 3-speed automatic and a rock-solid 9-inch rear with 3.00 gears inside, so it's far from radical but easy to drive. Looking around underneath, you'll see a recent dual exhaust system, clean floors, and those 17-inch Torque Thrust wheels wearing fat Goodyear radials look great.
Significantly more muscular than stock yet very reasonably priced, this over-achieving small-block coupe delivers big thrills when you're behind the wheel. Call today!
