1970 Ford Mustang Additional Info:

Mustang fans, this is how you do it right. Take the best-looking Mustang of them all, paint it Calypso Coral, give it a burly 408-inch stroker motor and a 5-speed transmission, then go have some fun. Showing only light signs of use since it was finished eight years ago, this is an extremely high-quality resto-mod that's ready to cruise or show at almost any level.It's hard to tell from photos, but this is one of those rare cars that's even nicer in person than it looks. Thousands of dollars are wrapped up in the paint job alone and it shows. The Calypso Coral paint is just the right shade and the bodywork is excellent in every way. It's not perfect, but man, this car sure gets some attention here in the showroom. The Mach 1 was arguably the best-looking Mustang of all time, and with upgrades like the Shaker hood, chin spoiler, window slats, and rear wing, it certainly looks the part of a high-performance pony. Special Mach 1 pieces like the rocker panel moldings are beautifully finished and the blacked out stripe treatment with '351' callouts is expertly applied (and technically, it's still a 351 under the hood, but we'll get to that in a moment). Chrome bumpers sparkle against the bright orange paint and all the stainless trim has been polished up to look great. This is a really impressive car!The interior has been fully restored to stock specs as well, complete with black Comfort-Weave buckets and a fold-down rear seat for practicality. Looking inside, you'd be hard-pressed to see any of the modifications, and it looks quite stock right down to the woodgrained steering wheel. This is a factory A/C car, so the system was retained and upgraded with modern hardware and there's a cool Hurst T-handle shifter for the modern 5-speed underneath. Crisply restored gauges show vivid markings and bright, clear lenses, and there are auxiliary gauges down in the console that look trick. An AM/FM stereo radio looks to be factory-issue, which is rare in a car that's built like this, but it also means that it was done on purpose. There are Mustang-logo rubber floor mats to protect the carpets and the trunk is correctly finished with a reproduction mat and a spare tire with matching cover.The engine is a 408 cubic inch Windsor V8, which is one heck of a torque factory. It looks pretty correct under the hood, with a proper Shaker hood scoop, Ford Blue paint on the major components, and a set of simple valve covers that are period-perfect. Upgrades include a QuickFuel 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake manifold, MSD ignition system, and a slightly larger cam to give it a bit of a lope at idle. The engine bay is nicely detailed with lots of correct features as well as upgrades like the big aluminum radiator and lightweight A/C compressor. Long-tube headers and a stainless exhaust system with X-pipe give it a spectacular sound and handling is bolstered with a set of subframe connectors and Cal Trac traction bars. The suspension was lowered to give it just the right stance and those aluminum Torque Thrust wheels look fantastic with beefy Nitto radials wrapped around them.Beautifully built and ferociously fast, this is a car that nails the resto-mod movement: stock looks, improved performance, and lots of comfort.
