It still looks like a Mustang but it's the toughest one yet. - Car and Driver, November 1968 The Car and Driver writers continued with their first reactions to the then-new Mustang offering: Outwardly the (new Mustang) is a blend of dragster and Trans-Am sedan. A Ford magazine ad for the launch of the redesigned put it this way: Someone finally built a better Mustang. Motor Trend noted the differences between the '69 and '70 Mustangs: 'There was no need to change the body style again for 1970, but Ford did make revisions that are more or less easy to spot. The 1969 models have four headlights, while 1970 models have two. That's a big difference. The fastback has a simulated air intake scoop in the top of each rear quarter, and the '70 model is smooth. That's a small change. Clearly, the new Mustang was a major introduction. Offered here is a beautifully refreshed 1970 Ford Mustang SportsRoof (fastback) in medium metallic blue over blue. The current odometer reading is 87,656 miles, or just under 1,725 miles per-year on average since new. This is a very impressive street Mustang. The exterior blue metallic silver paint shows excellent gloss and consistency. It was properly refreshed for this legendary blue-oval model, and the results are near-perfect. The finish highlights the body's flowing lines, in particular its roofline, arched rear- enders, and forward-sloping front end. The gloss-black, wide hood-stripe over the large, functional ram-air intake (and echoed on the rocker panels) makes a serious performance statement. A matte-black finish on the lower-front, Mach 1-style spoiler, front grille, and rear-deck spoiler add the right racy touch. There are no dings, and no dents, no damage on any sheet-metal panel. Chrome trim is likewise excellent across front and rear bumpers, grille trim, window trim, and door handles. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Factory badging, including the front, running-horse grille emblem and fuel-filler cap, is properly in place. All lighting lenses, including on the single, in-the-grille headlights (a change from '69) and the six taillights, are clear and uncracked. Cabin glass is free of flaws. The Cragar® 5-spoke, chrome-finished wheels in perfect condition are mounted with period-correct BFGoodrich® Radial T/A, raised-white-letter tires. The suspension has been raised slightly. Inside, the stock horizontally wide-pleated, blue-vinyl-upholstered (with leatherette-pattern inserts) front buckets and folding rear-bench seat are in excellent condition; the seating surfaces are free of damage or even any minor indications of wear. Molded door panels include horizontal-pattern, two-tone blue vinyl; window cranks are door-mounted. Chrome door-sill trim (with blue-oval Ford logo) is in excellent condition, evidence of owner care. The original 2-spoke, running-horse-branded steering wheel frames four circular instrument openings with speedometer and analog gauges. The padded black dash is free of damage. The center stack includes the factory Philco® push-button radio with heat and ventilation slide-level controls below. The original T-lever shifter for the automatic transmission is mounted on the transmission hump with no console; there is also a storage compartment beneath the center armrest. Blue cabin loop-style carpeting in very good, very clean condition is in pla
