I am the 4th owner of this "survivor"
1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1. This NJ built Mach 1 has spent it's hole life in the
Toronto, Ontario, Canada area. Despite the heavy handed use of salt
on our roads through the winters, this car remains with all original
sheet metal, and floorpans, and interior. I should thank previous
owners for putting this baby away and keeping it out of the salt
most of it's life. Fresh paint was applied in 1994, otherwise it's
as it came from the factory.
According to the Kevin Marti report, this car was optioned with
the Deluxe Interior, 8,000 rpm Tachometer, Black Hood Stripes, Sport
Deck Rear Seat, Power Front Disc Brakes, Power Steering, AM/8-Track
Stereo, Tinted Glass, 351C-4V engine and Hurst Shifter 4spd toploader
"Close Ratio" transmission with a 3.25 ratio Trac-Loc
rear end. ALL of these items remain, intact and functional and un-restored.
The interior as you can imagine is starting to show some signs of
wear, and some minor dashpad cracking (typical), but I'm leaving
it original for now. I have made some minor engine modifications
in the way of a Cam & Headers, etc, but nothing that can't be
put back to stock in a jiffy.
I have raced this Car at some Lapping Events put on by our local
Mustang club (www.ghma.on.ca)
and have attached some pictures of it on the Track. Suspension was
upgraded to KYB's all around and a 1-1/8" front sway bar, and
Polygraphite bushings, to improve handling. Lowering of 1-1/2"
is in my future plans, but never will I put on any Mods that cannot
easily be reversed, to return it to bone stock, should I desire.
