Yellow Boss — really fast in a straightline .70's oversensitive power steering not cool when agressively going through the gears. gas mileage not a consideration. the cars function is to look and sound great while launching from one stop light to the next. which is does great. factory rated @ 290 Hp was low and engine redlines @ 8000rpms

Rates Up With My Favorite Car As This Car Was The First I Ever Owned — I bought this car while I was in the Army. It was my first car and looking back I couldn't have chosen a finer car. Now owned by a very smart guy who wouldn't sell this back for any amount, jerk. I only regret that I don't still own this beauty as it is so extremely valuable today. This car would cost you today in even just reasonable shape from $50k and way up from there depending on a lot of factors. In mint condition, all matching numbers this car can be in the $250k range at Barrett Jackson Auto Auctions AZ. everything is matching.

1970 Convertible Mustang — I loved the thought of getting a classic convertible! I always wanted a convertible 1962 - 1964 convertible Impala, & now I've got this 1970 Mustang convertible. Since picking it up, waiting for the impala to drop in my lap won't be as bad of a wait!

I Wouldn't Trade It. — When it was running it rode ruff but was a blast to drive. I bought it in 1986 my junor year of high school. After high school I joined the Army drove it when I was in the Army at Ft Sill OK. I plan on restoring it.

Pros

Grate power, good looking car, gear sound it's amazing

Cons

poor stability, bit roomy backseats, if you don't like noisy cars this is not for you.

Great American Muscle Car, For A Reasonable Price — Great looking car, great gear sound. You need to get some bucks if you wan't to mantaing a good looking Mustang over the years. Mustang 1970 is a unique pice of work from Larry Shinoda, for me is one of the best looking mustang of history, nowadays there's not a lot of this cars out there.

1970 Mustang- A Trail Horse For The Ages — Performance- very good- strong pull in 1st gear to 4800 rpm, shifts into 2nd at 55 mph, and covers the 1/4 mile in15 sec. This is a bone stock cast iron Windsor, with high flow intake and headers / H pipe for exhaust. Build quality- built in Feb 1970 in Methuen NJ, it is typical of "Detroit quality" for the era... mediocre at best, but anvil tough design and materials. Appearance- good straight rust-free condition, but needs fresh paint and some door dings removed. Interior immaculate, eat off the "show-car custom" engine. Exterior styiling? This was the last Ford car designed by Larry Shinoda, who penned the immortal 1963 Corvette split window coupe.' Nuff said. Cost of ownership- dirt cheap for the fun factor, plus the car has increased in value by 15% since bought in 2008. Fun factor- booming exhaust note and bags of low end torque make it priceless; my 1st car in high school was a 1970 coupe purchased in 1972 for under $2500. (I have $13K in the "new" one).

Not For The Weak Or Nervous — What can i say if you like the smell of exhaust the rumble of a cleveland and the push into the seat you get when you step on the peddle ... then this car is for you ....not to mention the joy of washing it on a cool summers night ... then out for a quick rip!!
