What started out as a ponycar in the mid-1960s had morphed into a full-blown muscle car by 1970 — especially when dressed in Mach 1 livery. The 1970 Mustang Mach 1 was mean and muscular in every sense; when ordered with a big-block 428 Cobra Jet with Ram Air, performance was nothing short of breathtaking. And by 1970, Ford made several road-handling improvements, moving away from the Falcon suspension that underpinned the early cars. The Mach 1 was a fast machine back 45 years ago, and it still is today.
This 1970 is a factory R-Code car (428 Cobra Jet with Ram Air “Shaker” hood) that has been restored to the highest standard. Paint is concours-quality and simply stunning in Acapulco Blue (also referred to as Medium Blue). In fact, the car arguably looks better than it did when it rolled out of the factory at Metuchen. Correct materials were used inside and out; the car is very nicely detailed underneath and in the engine compartment, with all hang tags, labels, starting instructions, and more. The original build sheet is included in the restoration documents.
This example was highly optioned from the factory, with a C-6 automatic transmission, power steering, power disc brakes, tinted glass, rear deck spoiler, rear window louvers, tachometer, AM/8-Track radio, rim-blow steering wheel, deluxe seat belts, deluxe interior group and convenience check group.
A photo book documents every aspect of the restoration, and also highlights serial numbers and part numbers of every major component. The engine is the original numbers-matching mill and all other major components are either original or date-code correct.
