This 1970 Mustang sportsroof is proof that you don't need to spend a fortune to own a cool Mustang. With a snappy 302 under the hood, a great color combination, and a few Mach 1 touches, it has the look everyone is paying big money to own, all for a bargain price.
If everyone made a list of the top 10 best-looking muscle cars of all time, the 1970 Ford Mustang fastback would probably be on a majority of those lists. This is one great-looking car. Finished in Medium Blue Metallic with black stripes, it's a classic look that worked on cars like the Boss 302 and Mach 1, and it works equally well here. A custom hood scoop, chin spoiler, and a decklid wing all make this car look seriously fast, and the paint job ties it all together quite nicely. This isn't some patched-together car, it's a solid, clean southern Mustang with straight sheetmetal, all refinished by guys who made sure it looked right. Sure, it's got a few signs of use, a few nicks here and there, but none of it is visible from behind the wheel or on the roll. You'll also dig the blacked-out grille and honeycomb tail panel, period details that work extremely well here.
The blue interior is almost entirely new, starting with fresh seat covers and new foam on the original buckets to make the all-day comfortable. The carpets are in great shape with only light wear, the door panels still fit tightly, and the dash pad looks great. The center console houses a familiar T-handle shifter, which now manages an AOD 4-speed automatic transmission, and there's a new AM/FM stereo that powers speakers throughout the interior. The original gauges have been replaced by a set of cool Dakota Digital dials that work rather well with the new blue LED lighting under the dash. The trunk is nicely finished with a correct mat set, which also includes a cover for the spare tire.
Ford's 302 cubic inch V8 has to be one of the best engines of the past few decades. Light, torquey, and virtually bulletproof, it can be built to build big power in a compact package, just as it has been in this car. With a Comp Cams camshaft, valves, and springs inside, an Edelbrock intake with a Holley double-pumper on top, and long-tube headers, it has the right parts to make horsepower. Externally, it looks great with Ford Blue paint, shiny aluminum valve covers, and practical details like a big radiator up front. Monte Carlo bars strengthen the front suspension, and the lowered stance definitely helps improve handling. The 4-speed automatic transmission is linked to a 9-inch rear, and the suspension was fully rebuilt with new front control arms, KYB shocks, subframe connectors, and fresh polyurethane bushings. Flowmaster mufflers sound fantastic, with a snarl that will make the hair on your neck stand up, and those trick 17-inch Magnum 500 wheels carry 245/45/17s up front and 255/45/17 Nitto radials out back.
If you like the bad boy Mustang look, this is a fantastic way to get it without spending a fortune. Call now!
