1970 Ford Mustang MACH I


Mileage: 90,000 miles

Location: Edinburg, Virginia

This is an original 1970 Ford Mustang Mach I. Originally it was a Windsor car but has been replaced with a strong 351 cu. in. Cleveland big block monster. It is believed to be balanced and blueprinted with approximately 8000 miles on it with approximately 375 to 400 horses. It has the big heads, aluminum intake, Holley 750 double pumper, moderate cam with a great lope, Ford racing valve covers, Flame Thrower billet aluminum distributor and coil, Petronix spark plug wires. An MSD ignition, Accell Super Coil and Moroso Blue Wires are extra and go with car.

The body is straight and painted in the original "Calypso Coral" color. It is high quality and a head turner with only minor chips. The door jams are excellent as well as the kick plates. The stripe kit resembles the Boss kit only with Mach insignias. The stripes are not painted so they can be removed if desired. The chrome is excellent as well as the window mouldings. Rubber seals are new as well as the wheels and tires.

The interior is new with a wood grain wheel and Hurst shifter. All gauges, turn signals, and horn work. The clock doesn't work. The undercarriage is solid with all original pans. It has the original posi-trac rear end. Newer Flowmaster exhaust system. The drive shaft is not the original.

Now the best part: the Shaker, louvers, and rear spoiler are original Ford equipment. They are steel and not the plastic aftermarket reporductions. The rear spoiler even has the bow in it and the Shaker has a functional flapper in it.

With the new Unisteer rack and pinion power steering system this car rides, drives, and handles great. There is no play in the steering at all. All the original steering components go with car. It is a horse, fast, and a blast to drive.

This was an original air conditioned car. All of the components and controls are in the interior and dash. The engine components such as the compressor did not come with the car when I bought it.
