Classic Car Overview
Invest in the stock market if you like, but Id much rather park some money in this show-quality 1970 Mustang Mach 1 with a 1969 front end conversion. In terms of appreciation, this highly pedigreed fastback offers an awesome black-on-silver color combination, a Marti Report and a fresh restoration with fewer than 2500 miles on it. And just try having this much fun with your stock portfolio. There arent many more intimidating cars from the muscle car era than the Mustang Mach 1, particularly in black, this sportsroof looks truly spectacular following a comprehensive restoration that is ready to start collecting the big trophies at the important shows. Fit and finish are extremely nice, as youd expect from a car with a resume like this, and the final product is impressive. The incredible black paint is miles deep, better than anything coming out of Dearborn in 1970, and with the satin silver stripes it takes on an especially brutal look. The usual spoiler in the front, hood pins, and Mach 1 graphics are subtle on the black paint, giving it a stealth fighter look thats insanely appealing. Chrome bumpers, honeycomb-style insert on the tail, and cool round exhaust tips give it a little extra eye candy, and all of it is expertly restored to show standards. The black Mach 1 interior is all business, but what a business to be in! New black leather Corbeau seats, new carpets, reproduction door panels, power windows, Cruise control (yes you heard right) and a whole bunch of other new stuff means its comfortable, accurate, and ready to show or go. New black dash panels and console warm things up a bit, but given the long list of options, you know this car was built for combat, and comfort. Theres an upgraded radio in the center of the dash and a full set of new Auto Meter gauges that look great, this one is all-business. A fold-down rear seat adds practicality, especially useful for the guys who raced on Sunday and drove their Mustangs to work on Monday, and the trunk is nicely furnished with a correct mat. This Mach 1 has a Shelby 427 FE big block with 428 crank, 427 aluminum heads, and Edelbrock Aluminum intake giving you 452CI. This is Big block power that makes for ferocious performance, and when its dressed like this one, most folks wont even know what hit em. The engine keeps with the clean look, and aside from the newer A/C compressor, aftermarket ignition coil, and aluminum radiator, this car isnt too far from the show field, either. It starts and runs beautifully, with a cackling exhaust note that comes courtesy of long-tube ceramic-coated headers, an X-pipe, and aggressive mufflers that sound brilliant. The Tremec 6-speed manual transmission offers a deep overdrive gear, so having 3.70 gears with Detroit TrueTrac in the 9-inch rear means its a fantastic driver in all situations. Thanks to the lowered stance with Heidts Mustang II double-wishbone with QA1 coilovers in the front and the rear suspension is set up with triangulated link with QA1 coilovers. This Mach 1 is begging to be taken out on some curvy back roads and it looks awesome with its lowered stance and allows custom staggered Torque Thrust wheels to really fill the fenders. Documented with a Marti Report and restoration photos, this high-quality Mach 1 delivers on the promises that its glossy black finish makes. Call today!
