Here's the story on this amazing 1970 Ford Mustang convertible: it's a real Q-code 428 Cobra Jet, four-speed car. It's the kind of rarity you can count on one hand, and we have matching numbers and the Marti Report to prove it. But more than just a rare original motor, this has been through a full restoration to make sure that rarity includes desirability.
This is the kind of car that really gets attention. 1970 was a distinct single-year style that arguably was one of the sportiest front-end designs of the first generation. The factory-correct code-D yellow has been recently refinished to have a terrific shine that acts like a bright beacon. And the bumpers have the same mirror-like luster. But that's not why you really like this convertible. Instead, it's the darker elements. Its the black stripe package on the hood and hood shaker that makes this convertible look great, with the tight black vinyl top up, or the dark interior open to the world. And the Goodyear Polyglas reproduction tires on the aluminum cap wheels are exactly how the '70s Fords came, if they were built to eat up the asphalt (more on that in a moment.)
Beneath the black electric folding top is an interior just as deep and dark. On a car this rare, the restoration budget was all about making it feel like you were picking this up right from the Dearborn factory in December 1969. The seats, door panels, carpeting, and dash have had any decades of use erased. In fact, this one feels 1970s correct right down to the AM radio and heat/defrost sliders. These later first-generation Mustangs seemed to strike a nice balance combining a racy feel with grand touring comfort. For example, the handsome high-back vinyl bucket seats not only look cool, but they also are firm and supportive for long drives. The original-style two-spoke steering wheel gives you a great view of all the gauges. But as practical as it might seem, you know this is a true muscle car the moment you grab the Hurst shifter.
If you haven't fallen in love/lust with this convertible yet, it will happen immediately when you open the hood. Not only are you looking at the original and ultra-rare Q-code 428 cubic-inch V8, but also it has been given a near concours-level restoration. This means the correct air filter on top of the Cobra Jet shaker; below that is a four-barrel carburetor; and it is all presented in the classic Ford blue. And we know you've noticed all the correct factory stickers in an engine bay that's clean enough to eat your dinner off of. Best of all, this level of presentation is basically on the whole car – from the factory instructions behind the license plate to the fully painted undercarriage. But just because a ton was invested in a proper restoration, doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy driving this classic Mustang. After all, the monster power of the big block Cobra Jet V8, the roar of the H-pipe dual exhaust, and the control of the close-ratio four-speed manual transmission are the kind high-octane dreams that only the upper echelon of muscle car fans ever get to experience.
We'll show you the Marti Report that lists it as a 1 of 5 ever built, but you already know how ultra desirable this 428 Mustang convertible is. A car this rare and so well presented droptop is likely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so don't miss out. Call now!!
