This carwhile needinga full restorationisa ROCK SOLIDSTRAIGHT Southern Carand is an extremelyworthy candidate with it'sdesirable option list andit's ORIGINAL NUMBERS MATCHING 351W-2V engine!!
This is an ORIGINAL H-code 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 (NOT A CLONE OR A TRIBUTE)thathas spentit'sentire life in Georgia hailing from Gordon, Gaoriginally. This car found it's wayup to Atlanta; where it remains to this day.This car wasa driver for about the 1st 10 years of it's life before being retired from it's daily driver duties to await a restoration.Well the restoration plans got sidetracked for reasons unknown and the Mach 1 ended up being parkedin the garage as a future project. The car has been stored for many, many yearsand at 1st it wasinside, then as time passed and priorities changed the Mach 1 eventually lost it's garage space and was relegated to outside storage.Fortunately, the mild climate here in Georgia spared this Mach 1 from the harsh elementsand preserved it as you see here!
This car wasordered at Gordon Motor Company in Gordon, Gawith an Atlanta 21 DSO inthe VERY RARE S-code Medium Gold Metallic Hue witha Black Hood Stripe and a matching3F code Ginger Mach 1 Comfortweave Bucket Seat Interior. It is one of only 334 1970 Mach 1's ordered in this not often seen and visually striking color/trim combination!!
ThisMach 1was furtherspec'd outwith thebase H-code 351W-2V 250hpV-8 Engine with anFMX Automatic Transmission, and a 9 inch 3.00 geared conventional rear end!

The Numbers Matching H-code 351W-2V Engine has been sitting for quite some time and is currently not running. The gas in the fuel tank is rotten and we have not attempted to get the engine running.We have pulled the plugs and filled the cylinders with marvel mystery oil as the motor did not want to turn when we put a battery in it. It did move, but did not spin freely sowe decided it was best to let the motor sit with the Marvel Mystery oil in it and let it work its magic on it. Idid verify the VIN number on the back of the block and itDOES MATCH the VIN on the car. It has been sitting for the better part of a quarter century and I believe it is best to plan on a complete rebuild. I do have the AC Compressor but the other under hood AC components are missing. All of the underdash AC parts are intact.
The Transmissionlooksto be all originaland complete with it's original kick-down assembly. The trans fluid is cleanand not burnt, but after sitting as long it has; it certainly would be wise to go through it as well.
The bullet proof9 inchbrings up the rear andis also theoriginal rear endto the car.
Thecar looks to have some of it'soriginal MediumGold paint, but has been spot paintedinplaces and spot primed in others. It has hadthe left1/4replaced early in it's life with a NEW Ford 1/4 panel installed at thefactory seams. The work was simple collision repair body work of the 70's and will needlight attention tobring it up to par.
The Body on theMach 1whilecertainly not perfectis actuallyvery solid and it'sGeorgiaroots show in this car's condition. The Hood needs a little work, but is a solid piece, while theTrunk Lid, Fenders, Doors,and 1/4's are allvery decent on the car.The Floors, Frame Rails, Rockers, etc. are also all ROCK solid on this car.The only real rust to speak of on the car is in the trunk floor area. While this car was stored it ended up with some squirrels getting into the trunk area and as a result there is some rust in the trunk floors and drop area. There is the slightest bit of rust in the very lower 1/4 panel just behind the rear wheel (see pics), but it is minimal and a very simple fix. There also is a touch of filler in the tail light panel under the tail lights that looks to have been done when the replaced the 1/4 panels.
The car's Mach 1 Sport Lamp Grille was damaged and a NEW Grille with New Sport Lamp Covers has been installed as well as having New Headlight doors installed in italso. This is a verycomplete, very original car that is well optioned and asuper solid platform to start with!!There is a small rusted area underneath the battery tray and it will needto be repaired and the tray replaced. The Floors,RailsandTorque Boxes are Dry and ROCK SOLID (see pics)!!
A 1970Mach 1 in this kind of shape is a RARE find today!! While certainly not a perfect car by any means, it is a Super Solid car to work with.
TheGinger Comfortweave Mach 1 Bucket Seat Interior has been well cared for over the years and is in amazingly good condition. While it does show some minimal wear on it; it is for the most part very ORIGINAL and very serviceable just as it is. The car has retains it's original Rim Blow Steering wheel, Sports Console,Mach 1 Carpet, Tan Running Horse Floor Mats, High Back Bucket Seats, Woodgrain Instruments and Passenger side clockin it. The dash pad has a couple of cracks in it and the driver door panel has a little damage toobut overall this is interior has survived the nearly 1/2 century since it rolled off the Metuchen assembly line with very little wear and tear.
The carwas originally equipped with and still retains it's ORIGINAL 14 x 7inch steel wheels with Mach 1 Sports Wheel Covers which are sporting a nice set of Raised White Letter Radials
Please be realistic in your expectations of this car as a 45+ year old project car that has been sitting for a very long time and needs a complete restoration to include body work, mechanical work, and cosmetic reconditioning.
I do have a Shaker Hood that I can make available with this car at extra cost and a set of 15x7 Magnum 500 Wheels with brand new Raised White Letter Tires on them also available at extra cost. Please see the last3 pictures to see the Car with the optional Shaker Hood assembly and Magnum 500 wheels as extra cost options available with this car.
Overall this is a very decent original 1970Mustang Mach 1that is a super solid restoration candidate. Thiscar is a Super Solid, Super Original, Numbers Matching restorationproject. There are lots of picked over,rusted out carcasses out there; but decent do-able cars such as this that are not rusted to death do not come along very often.This car has a clean open title from the previous owner that is ready for transfer. If you have been looking for a Super Solid 1970 Mach 1 to restore then don't hesitate on this one; as is it may be some time before another suitableresto projectsuch as this one comes along again!
