Credited the last year of the "muscle car" era is this beautifully restored 1970 Mustang Mach 1. This was the first and best year to have a 351 Cleveland powerplant. This is a "M" coded motor meaning it was originally a 4 barrel carburetor with the higher 10.7:1 compression ratio. After 1970, stricter emissions requirements forced car manufactures to lower there compression ratios which meant significantly lower horsepower and torque outputs. This particular Mach 1 has been professionally restored to originality. The grabber blue exterior and white vinyl interior is a hot color combo. The undercarriage has been coated in a semi-gloss black paint and the suspension has been rebuilt to OE specs. The 4 speed and clutch feel healthy and make this car a lot of fun to drive. The shaker hood and hood tach are an added WOW factor. The 4 speed paired with the rear 3.25 gears make this an excellent highway cruiser. The bucket seats are very comfortable and the dash design on the Mach 1s are great. Overall, they made about 30,000 less Mach 1s in 1970 then the prior year and this is one of the nicest restorations you will find!
