1970 FORD MUSTANG FASTBACK
This 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 has been through an extensive rebuild with tasteful modifications. The current owner is the second Australian owner, having purchased the car from the gent who imported it back in 2013. Most of the restoration work was completed in the USA in the early 2000’s but the current owner has continued to spend large sums of money on the car to improve it during his ownership.
The car was stripped back to a bare shell and repainted in metallic blue with correct Mach 1 style blackouts. The paint and body both present very well especially for a car that has been painted for the best part of 15 years. The chrome bumpers on the car are in good condition and there is a front spoiler and rear window louver. The car sits lowered over a set of 18” Magnum 500 style wheels.
Open the door, and the inside is just as nice as the outside having been fully refinished in black vinyl with the factory trim pattern. The dash features a full set of Dakota Digital gauges, and the steering wheel is a rim blow horn type. Creature comforts include power steering, power brakes and air conditioning to keep things cool on those hot days. There is a large stereo setup in the car featuring an Alpine head unit, Sound stream equaliser, custom parcel self and a neat boot install that features a 12” sub, capacitor and two amplifiers.
Under the bonnet is a 351 ci Cleveland V8 with 4 dot 4V heads, fast fuel injection and an MSD ignition. The engine is paired to a 5-speed, Tremec manual transmission with a new clutch. Power is fed to the rear wheels via a 9-inch differential with 3.75 ratio Currie rear end. The steering has been upgraded to an RRS power rack-and-pinion item which is a substantial upgrade over the original. The brakes are power booster with discs up front and drums in the rear. Shocks have been upgraded to Koni adjustables and the springs and suspension bushes have been replaced front and rear. The car has a nice rumble thanks to a 3” Magnaflow stainless exhaust system.
This is a great example of a neatly modified, 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1. These Fastback Mustangs are always popular so ensure you register and bid to avoid missing out.
