1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 - VIN 0F05M18168
40,300 original miles, 351C-4V, FMX transmission, 3.25:1 differential, DSO Newark.

Here's my recently acquired 1970 Mustang Mach 1. This is my first classic car (not counting a 1957 Chevy Bel-Aire w/283 or 1955 Chevy 2-dr hardtop w/265). However, at the time who knew? They were "used" back then, not classics!

Not much of a story to tell about this Mach 1 as it was bought in excellent, no-rust condition = no work and lots of fun. Seems, my neighbor owns American Classic Restorations, and we'd been talking muscle cars, no mention of or intention that I'd like to buy one. He comes over to my house one evening and says, "I found your car." Gee, I didn't know mine was missing. Then he tells me about the Mach 1. I said, "So, you're saying I'm buying this car?". his answer: "Yes." So I did. Why not. It is a beauty --- and I knew it wouldn't loss 25% of its value driving it away from the shop!

This is an all-the-numbers-match Mach 1 with the exception of the paint. The original color was Chestnut Metallic (Color Code "Y") a late, not well-documented addition to the stock Mustang color offerings from Mar 1970 to the end of the model year (source: Marti AutoWorks). The car was repainted Calypso Coral by the previous owner in early 2002, a professional body man who did a stellar job. Good news: the new color looks great. Bad news: originally it was only 1 of 132 built with the "Y" color and 3A trim package. Almost the entire car is original, including the interior, and everything works. The few exceptions are typical maintenance items, like hoses, some of which need re-replacing with correct parts. It is a daily driver, although in New England, that is stretching the meaning of "daily" a bit.

My 1st real "showing" of the Mustang Mach 1 was at a regular Sat cruise night here in MA with my neighbor, a couple of his friends, and their cars. It was quite an event driving there and back: my 1970 Mach 1, a 1970 AAR 'Cuda 347 hemi w/6 pack, a 1966 "sleeper" Chevelle 396, and a 1970 SuperBird 426 Hemi (yup, one of the only 93 built). Talk about turning heads with those four beasts cruising together down the highway!! THAT was fun!!
