Vehicle Description

1970 Ford Mustang Convertible - 302ci V8 - Automatic Transmission - 68k Miles Shown - Red Over Black Interior (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1970 Ford Mustang Convertible on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 190 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: GKM.com) Ford has done their best possible job in coming up with a perfectly suited muscle car that fits street and racing conditions without great amounts of change being required for the transition. - Hot Rod Magazine, January 1970 Hagerty | Media provides more '70 Mustang background and history: The 1969 range was such a huge change for the Mustang that 1970 alterations were relatively minor. The four headlights were reduced to two seven-inch lights in the wider grille, with a dummy intake where the outer lights had been. Fake intakes on the rear fenders of the fastbacks were deleted and the tail panel flattened, instead of concave. Henry Ford fired Bunkie Knudsen in August, either because he wanted to move away from muscle cars or because Knudsen had been too successful in pushing the expanded performance range. In any event, sales dropped 100,000 units, largely because of competition from Chrysler in the form of the new Challenger and 'Cuda as well as the redesigned Firebird and Camaro from GM. Total output for the year was 190,727 Mustangs, with 82,569 hardtops, 13,581 Grande hardtops, 45,934 fastbacks, 40,970 Mach 1s and only 7,673 convertibles. Offered here is one of those 7,673 1970 convertibles. This Texas-owned metallic red-over-black-under-a-black fabric-top Mustang has been refreshed and respectfully upgraded. The odometer currently shows 68,276 miles, fewer than 1,350 miles per-year on average since new. The exterior metallic-red finish is the result of a professional respray; the surface is smooth, the gloss very high overall, with no damage to paint or sheet metal. The paintwork properly included the trunk interior, door sills and jambs, and under-hood surfaces. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The soft top fits perfectly and shows no tears, rips, or other flaws. Chrome bumpers, grille and windshield trim, and rear fascia trim all display excellent finishes; the patterned rear panel surrounding the fuel filler has been painted in the body color for a distinctive look. Cabin glass and all lighting lenses are clear and uncracked; the single-headlight look is a desirable and distinctive feature. Badging is limited to the Mustang-logo emblem in the black front grille and the same logo on the rear fuel-filler cap. Factory-original, 15-inch, styled steel wheels with Mustang logo center caps are mounted with Sentury® Touring 205/65 blackwall tires. The black interior includes horizontal-pattern vinyl door trim, horizontal-pattern vinyl upholstery on the front bucket seats, vertical-pattern vinyl on the rear bench seat, and black cabin carpeting (with black protective carpet mats) throughout. A black vinyl boot covers the convertible top when stored. All these surfaces show virtually no significant wear and absolutely no damage. A leather-rimmed, 3-spoke, brushed-metal sport steering wheel with Mustang logo frames the factory instrumentation augmented by below-dash Equus® gauges to monitor oil pressure, alternator output, and coolant temperature. The woodgrain-trimmed center stack includes slide-lever controls for the VintageAir® system as well as the factory-original push-button Philco® AM radio. A custom center console houses the shift lever for the automatic transmission and Boss® audio controls with a combination storage compartment-armrest to the rear. (Please view the close-up p
