This is a very unique 1970 Mustang. Unique in its rare combination of features as well as its original color combination, and unique in being a one owner car that still has its original, numbers matching 351 Cleveland engine. There is a display board for this car that details out the features and numbers more thoroughly, so don't forget to ask your salesperson to see it. For now, check out this beautiful Grabber Blue Mustang.
The clean lines and aggressive stance of this fastback looks great in this coat of bright blue paint. It is a first-class respray that was done as part of a restoration about 10 years ago. Scoops and stripes and things that shout loudly are nice on some cars, but this car shines brightest by letting that paint highlight the crisp top edge of the front fenders and the muscular flares of the rears. There is a bit of chassis rake giving the car an aggressive look and the fastback roofline flows smoothly into an integrated rear spoiler. The view from the back is of those iconic three chamber taillights with a galloping pony gas cap between them. Mustang is lettered across the trunk lid and a simple chrome bumper underlines everything. Up front, a return to single headlights for 1970 created a cleaner look with a wider grill that is black, trimmed in chrome, with another galloping pony over red, white and blue in the center and a pencil thin bumper completing the look.
Open the door and you will find a White interior that is a stunning compliment to the Grabber Blue. The hi-back bucket seats have been reupholstered and look amazing with pleated seating surfaces, smooth side bolsters and patterned tops buttoned in place. The stock two spoke steering wheel is trimmed in wood grain with a pony in the center. The twin cove dash pad has wood grain inserts with neat and clean factory gauges tucked back into their pods. There is a 120 MPH speedometer and a tachometer directly in front of the driver with water temp and fuel gauges off to the sides. An AM radio sits just over a couple nice little upgrades with the controls for Vintage Air A/C to keep you cool on those hot summer days and a Hurst shifter for the 4-speed manual transmission rising from the floor just waiting to be stirred around. The headliner is tight and looks great in white while the carpets are black and tie the look of everything together nicely.
Open the hood and you will find that precious, numbers matching 351 Cleveland motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. A chrome air filter assembly feeds a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and chrome valve covers add their splash of flash. There is a brand-new A/C compressor that is all polished up and ready to keep you cool while an aluminum radiator keeps the engine running cool. Fresh ignition components include an MSD coil and neatly routed spark plug wires while long tube headers wind their way out the bottom of the engine bay. Power flows back through that 4-speed manual transmission to a traction lock rear end with 3.25 gears mounted on leaf springs with snubbers to help prevent wheel hop. Up front the power steering works through control arms with coil springs and sway bars both front and rear provide good handling. The rubber meets the road through 245/60R14 BFGoodrich Radial T/A all-around mounted on black Supreme 5-spoke wheels with polished rims.
Numbers matching 351 Cleveland, beautiful in Grabber Blue on White, and looking for its second owner. Would that be you? Come on down, take a good look, and see what you think.
