1970 Ford Mustang MACH 1 WITH 351 CLEVELAND V8 & 4 SPD HURST TRANS!Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car, in sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight, in order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree.

and which was originally delivered to the Ford dealership of Livonia, MI on 9/17/1969 and before which it was used as a test vehicle for 3 weeks by the Ford Trim & Chassis Division. This is a rare example of only 2,695 built with this paint code and 1,882 with these Paint/Trim Codes. There is no rust or signs of any major accidents. Please note that the car has a recent 'Deluxe Marti Report' to substantiate all it's options and originality.
The Mach 1 debuted in 1969 as the mainstream high performance Mustang, taking over from the GT. Two and four barrel 351's were offered plus the four barrel 390 and the 428 CJ and CJ-Ram-Air. Unlike the GT option, the Mach 1 model included a special interior that featured many of the Deluxe decor Group items plus high back bucket seats and special carpet. The Mach 1's original recipe was simple: It started with a V8 powered 'Sportsroof' body and added numerous visual and performance enhancing options which the car proudly boasts including the black hood stripes and mounted tachometer with hood pins, hood scoop (including optional Shaker scoop), competition suspension, chrome pop-open gas cap, revised wheels, chrome exhaust tips (except 351W 2V), deluxe interior, unmissable livery and dealer optional chin spoiler, rear deck spoiler, and rear window louvers (SportSlats).
1970 also saw the previous 351W (Windsor) V8 engine options replaced with a new 351C (5.8L) Cleveland V8 in either 2V (2-venturi carburetor) or 4V (4-venturi carburetor) versions. The 351C (4V) M Code engine featured 11.0:1 compression and produced 300 bhp at 5400 rpm. This new performance engine incorporated elements learned from the Ford 385 series engine and the Boss 302, particularly the poly-angle combustion chambers with canted valves and the thin-wall casting technology. The standard 351 Windsor engine was really a slightly enlarged 289/302 and as its name implies came from Ford's Windsor engine family. The thin wall cast small block with 5 bolt straight valve covers accepted regular spark plugs and used a timing chain in the block. The 351 Cleveland, on the other hand, belonged to Ford's 355 engine family and was a big small block with 8 bolt 2 plane valve covers, used the smaller 14mm spark plugs and had a separate front cover bolted to the block housing the timing chain and routing water but most importantly it sported different and larger heads and a unique intake manifold which makes these fire breathers the legends that they are with lots of horsepower and as they were only manufactured for five years consequently they are not only very expensive to buy but also hard to find. The Boss 351 Mustang was a Cleveland and one of the fastest production cars ever made for the street right from the factory.
Standard on Mach 1s was a fierce but cosmetic hood scoop that had integrated turn-signal lights mounted in the back. A more functional option was the signature 'Shaker Hood' with an air scoop mounted directly to the top of the motor, used to collect fresh air and so named for its tendency to "shake" above the rumbling V-8 below. The interior came complete with teak wood grain details, full sound deadening material and high-back sport bucket seats. This particular example has the optional shaker hood scoop that attaches to the top of the engine air cleaner and protrudes up through a cutout in the hood. The scoop is functional, operating on engine vacuum - a vacuum valve inside the scoop opens the air inlet valve when the engine vacuum drops during acceleration; at idle and low speed operation the inlet valve remains closed but opens when the engine is shut off. The cold air introduced into the engine through this functional hood air scoop provides more efficient operation and a measurable increase in horsepower. The amount of increase depends on the temperature differential between the under hood temperature and the ambient air.
The optional Traction Lok differential option provides greater stability required for fast high r.p.m.'s starts. A valuable side effect of the Traction Lok is the excellent traction provided when driving on snow, mud or poor road conditions as thrust is applied, the engagement of the multiple disc clutch creates greater binding of the two axle shafts together to feed equal power to each rear wheel.
This particular example is a seriously striking example which turns heads wherever she goes! The engine is extremely strong and responsive with excellent oil pressure and no noticeable oil leaks and which sounds absolutely magnificent, the automatic transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool. It boasts copies of all its original documentation including its original Protecto-plate and window sticker!
The 'Grabber Blue' paint and the interior is very striking and a real head turner. This must be one of the finest and most highly optioned example's of a 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 with an extremely desirable and powerful 351 Cleveland 300HP V8 engine in rare turn-key and daily head-turning condition of an all time classic America muscle car icon! Perfect car for any Mustang enthusiast or classic American muscle car collector!
