This 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 was built at Ford’s Metuchen, New Jersey assembly plant on August 26, 1969, and was delivered new to Brady-Bushey Ford of Charlottesville, Virginia. It is finished in Medium Lime Metallic over black vinyl and powered by a 351ci V8 paired with an FMX three-speed automatic transmission. Features include a hood scoop, hood twist locks, rear window louvers, 15″ Magnum 500-style wheels, dual exhaust outlets, power-assisted front disc brakes, rear air shocks, a push-button AM/8-track stereo, and a Sport Deck rear bench seat. The selling dealer acquired the car in 2015, and recent service included replacing the carburetor and spark plugs. This Mustang Mach 1 is offered at no reserve in New York with removed factory parts, a Deluxe Marti report, and a clean Virginia title.
The car is finished in Medium Lime Metallic, and the hood features black stripes, twist locks, and a scoop. Additional features include rear window louvers, chrome bumpers, grille-mounted indicator lights, Mach 1 rocker moldings, body-color mirror caps, and dual exhaust outlets. The bright trim is pitted, and the paint is scratched and peeling on various panels. Primer and black overspray are visible on the rear panels, and additional blemishes are shown close-up in the gallery.
Magnum 500-style 15″ wheels are mounted with 225/70 BFGoodrich Radial T/A white-letter tires. Stopping power is provided by power-assisted front discs and rear drum brakes. Rear air shocks are installed, and a set of factory hubcaps are included in the sale.
The cabin features high-back bucket seats upholstered in black vinyl with textured inserts joined by a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Woodgrain trim accents the interior, and additional amenities include a heater, lap belts, an analog clock, a factory push-button AM/8-track stereo, and a Sport Deck rear bench seat. The air conditioning does not function, the outer bolster is torn on the driver’s seat, a speaker cover is missing, and additional blemishes are shown in the gallery.
The three-spoke steering wheel fronts a 120-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for fuel level and coolant temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 93k miles, approximately 1,200 of which have been added under current ownership. The steering wheel is cracked, taped, and missing trim.
The M-code 351ci Cleveland V8 is fed by a four-barrel carburetor and was factory rated at 300 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. Service in May 2022 is said to have included installing a Holley carburetor along with performing an oil change and replacing the spark plugs and headlight relays. The removed factory carburetor and a set of factory exhaust manifolds are included in the sale.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through an FMX three-speed automatic transmission and a rear axle with 3.0:1 gearing. The transmission pan gasket was replaced and transmission fluid was flushed in preparation for the sale.
The Deluxe Marti report details the factory colors and equipment and lists an August 26, 1969 build date.
