Sold as is with no warranties written or implied. I reserve the right to end the auction at any time. A $ 1,000 deposit is expected within 48 hours of auction ending and full payment (via wire transfer preferred) is expected within 7 days of auction ending.For auction is a highly desirable 1970 Mach 1 finished in its original factory colors of Grabber Blue with White Interior, M Code 351 4V Cleveland Engine, 4 Speed and Shaker Scoop. A Deluxe Marti Report is included as well as a reproduction window sticker, which details the factory options of the car.I have owned this car for approximately 5 years and bought it because I always wanted a 1970 Mach 1 and because of its striking color combination. The fact that the car had a factory 4 speed and Shaker Scoop only made it more compelling. Below is a detailed description of the car, and feel free to reach out if I can answer any other questions.I am selling this 1970 Mach 1 as well as a Triple Black 1968 Pontiac Firebird Convertible 400, 4 spee, so check out my other listing. Reason for selling: As most car collectors will attest to, this is always a difficult choice, but career and life changes dictate the sale of the cars.
In anticipation of questions on whether the cars were flooded/took water during the recent Hurricane Harvey...The cars did not get a single drop of rain and stayed dried as a bone in our garage. I have 4 collector cars that are stored in our garage and we experienced no issues in our neighborhood/house with rising water. Inspections are welcome.DriveTrain: Not "born with" engine and components (heads, intake, carburetor, distributor, transmission, rear end, etc). The current engine is a complete 1971 351 Cleveland with 4 V heads. Block casting # is D0AE-L,with a casting date of 1A18, which decodes to January 18, 1971. The engine runs well and pulls hard, especially above 3000 RPM's.4V cylinder heads, with the # 4 cast on the corner. This are highly desirable for their high RPM ability. Holley 4 BBL carburetor withelectric choke and upgraded to Pertronix ignition. 9" Ford rear end with 3.50:1 rear axle and traction lok differential per previous owner documentation. Transmission is a 4 speed, close ratio top loader with a Hurst T-Handle shifter.
Body: The body of the car is solid with no rust. The car retains its original quarter panels, doors, fenders, and has rust free floor boards and frame rails. This is a key attribute of the car.Paint: The car is finished in its original Grabber Blue. I would categorize the quality of the paint as a "high quality driver". There are some imperfections (bubbling) in the paint, some scratches that have been touched up and some cracking (Please see pictures). However, the car shows extremely well.Interior: Finished in its original White Mach 1 Deluxe Interior and showsextremelywell. Dashpad shows like new, carpet as well, seats are in great condition as well as door panels. Fold down rear seat from the factory, a preferred and limited option (19% of fastbacks in 1970 had fold down rear seats). Interesting that the Marti report does not include it as an option but the reproduction window sticker does.Radio: AM Ford original radio with center speak in the dash.Cluster/Instrumentation: All components work: Fuel, temperature gauges, fog lights, headlights, wipers, etc The horn on the original Rim Blow Steering wheel does not work. Working Tilt Column steering wheel, which is a desirable and limited feature. Tachometer, a limited option, works well.Power Steering: Just spendapproximately $ 1,000 to replace all power steering components with high quality Scott Drake parts: Hoses, Power Steering Control Valve, Idler Arm, Power Steering Ram Cylinder. Power Steering works and steers like new.Shaker and Ram Air Intake: Very desirable factory feature and operates well.Brakes: Original front disc power brakes with rear drums. Stops well with no wandering.Exhaust: Dual exhaust with manifolds and correct exhaust tips. Nice Muscle Car rumble (see video).Wheels and Tires: Magnum 500 15" wheels with BF Goodrich Tires in excellent condition. Thetires are staggered with the front size being P235/60R15 and the rears at P245/60R15.
Options: Per Kevin Marti's book "Mustang...by the Numbers", I wanted to highlight several "rare"/limited options on the car. There were 191,522 Mustangs manufactured in 1970. Tachometer: only 14,151 Mustangs had a tachfrom the factory or 7.4% of Mustang produced in 1970. Tilt Column: only 5,223 Mustangs had a tilt column from the factory in 1970 or 2.7% of Mustangs produced in 1970. Shaker: Only 15,275 Mustangs had a shaker from the factory or 8% of Mustangsproduced in 1970. Convenience Group: Only 18,619 had this feature in 1970 or 9.7% of Mustangs produced in 1970. According to my research, the Convenience Group includes: trunk light, glove box light, headlamp on warning buzzer, left hand remote control mirror, automatic seat back latch, and parking brake warning light.
Driving Impressions: The car is a joy to drive and has plenty of power. The car steers straight and shifts well through the gears. Temperature gauge typically runs 3/4 of the way once it is warmed up but have not had issues with overheating or hot starting.
