OVERVIEW

1970 Ford Mustang

  • DESCRIPTIONI purchased my car in November 2001. This car was sold new at Dobbs Ford in Haleyville, AL after spending 8 months on their lot (car was expensive in the day and sparse on options). Since then the car has been bought/sold numerous times spending most of its life in the Midwest area eventually finding its way to the Volo Auto Museum. I found the car in NY and returned it to its birth home in the Detroit metropolitan area. The 1969/1970 Mustangs are my favorite body styles with the Boss 302 being at the top. My car is an original Grabber Orange with black standard interior; the options included: shaker, slats, front & rear spoilers, power steering, optional axle ratio, tachometer, clock, AM radio, and console. When I purchased the car I knew I was going to do a "little" work on it, but what started out as some spot painting to repair all of the cracked black paint finish on the car turned into a complete restoration project! Although this was not a rotisserie restoration the doors, hood, deck lid, fenders, bumpers, valence panels, glass, and interior were all removed. With the help of swap meets and ebay I was able to locate these original items missing from the car: Rev Limiter Holley 780 Carburetor Correct Style PVC Hurst "H' shift design handle Floor Console Space Saver Spare / Inflator Canister / Jack Original Seatbelts Complete w/Shoulder Belts My car finally made its' debut at the Ford 100 Celebration in Dearborn 2003 where I had the opportunity to put Parnelli Jones behind the wheel and have him sign my drivers side visor. Although the major work is done, there is always something to repair or improve on. I enjoy showing the car and taking it to Cruise Nights. I look forward to my annual participation in the Woodward Dream Cruise, and also just enjoying a leisurely drive to listen to those solid lifters!
