For Sale: 1970 Ford Mustang in Manitowoc, Wisconsin


Vehicle Description

All vehicle trades considered, including classics and performance. Here is a fantastic looking 1970 Mustang that makes you wonder why Ford never made a Boss 302 convertible. This is one of those cars that looks fast just standing still. And while it has a load of visual appeal, it is also a load of fun to drive. This car spent most of its life out west. It was originally ordered from Washington state but also spent time in California and Wyoming, which helped keep the rust at bay. The car has been repainted in its original Code J Grabber Blue and also received Boss 302 graphics. I don't think there's a better color combination, especially with the black convertible top. There is also a front air dam, rear spoiler, and Mach 1 style hood scoop. All chrome, moldings, bezels, etc. are in very nice shape. The look is completed with the new 15" Magnum 500 wheels with Cooper tires. While this car was an F-code 302ci 2v from the factory, the motor no longer looks, sounds, or performs like the original setup. And I mean that in a good way. The engine has been rebuilt with aluminum Ford SVO cylinder heads, an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, and Holley double pumper carburetor. The ignition uses a Mallory Unilite distributor fired through an MSD 6T box and Accel coil. It really sounds tough through the headers and dual Flowmaster mufflers. The engine is coupled to a Ford C4 automatic transmission through a performance torque converter (2,800 rpm stall speed). It all gives this car plenty of zip! This Mustang also has power steering and power front disc brakes, with a factory style suspension front and rear. There are many new parts throughout. Note too the chrome export brace and Monte Carlo bar under the hood; these are must-haves on the old Mustang convertibles. The black standard interior uses stock components except for the aftermarket woodgrain steering wheel and Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo. The speedometer and all gauges work properly. So do the dash lights and courtesy lights. The heater/defroster, horn, wipers, and parking brake all work as well. Finally, the power top goes up and down smoothly with good window fitment. You will not go unnoticed in this car. It brings out the best of the 1970 convertible styling without being over-the-top. It is also easy to drive with plenty of performance, and offers about as much fun as you can have in a car. Just what you'd expect out of a classic Mustang.
