This 1970 Ford Mustang is a well-done professional restoration that
combines the ideal Sportsroof look with iconic color, proper 351 V8
power, and a terrific vintage style. So dig into all the details on
this low mileage pristine and powerful pony.
This is one of those cars that impresses you in the details. The
consignor owns a restoration shop, and this is a family car that
was completed only about 1,200 ago. Wimbledon White is a legendary
Mustang color, and the laser straight body is the perfect canvas to
showcase the amazing shine of the paint. Plus, this has some great
standout contrasting black details that you see on a Mach 1 package
like the blackout hood, hood scoop, chin spoiler, rear window
louvers, and full-width rear spoiler. And because the black looks
so good against the white, this one goes further than a Mach 1 with
added dark details on the trunk and rear panel. Of course, chrome
bumpers also look great against the white paint, and all the
stainless trim has been polished up to shine, too. Those
competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels really
complete the look of a vintage speed machine.
We like all the black accenting on the outside, it's especially
nice to see a well-done black interior. All the right stock pieces
appear in place, from the center console, to the wood-like premium
trim, to the Comfort-Weave bucket seats. This Mustang has been
thoroughly restored, and the proof is in the workmanship that has
gone into keeping this interior pristine. Even the fold-down rear
seat looks and fits great. The details are thoughtful, like how the
Philco AM radio now also has an FM setting. You'll spot a few
well-integrated upgrades, and they are all about making this a
better driver's machine. This includes the Bosch oil and temp
gauges, grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, and
column-mounted Sun Super Tach.
The engine bay shows off more of this thoughtful restoration.
Everything looks extra clean and tidy because it was built with
professional care. You're looking at Ford's mighty 351 cubic-inch
V8. This is not the original block to the car, but it was rebuilt
using the original heads, intake, and exhaust manifold. It fires up
eagerly and has a steady idle that's probably better then even when
Ford made it new. This is a coupe built for enjoying on the road,
and so you have a three-speed automatic transmission, power
steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and a new limited-slip
rear end with 3.00 gears. As you check out these features in the
undercarriage photos, they show more of the care that went into the
build with fresh components (like the dual exhaust) and even the
proper red oxide paint.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and restoration photos.
Rarely do you get a chance at such a well-done professional
product, and so you know you need this one in your garage. Call
