Same Owner For 30 Years: 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1

1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1

After 30 years, this 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 the owner is parting ways with it after many great memories. It is currently at a bid price of $19,300 with no reserve. The car is located in Galion, Ohio, and there is a VIN listed along with a clear title and 87,000 miles listed. You can view more information and place a bid for it here on eBay.

There is nothing in the listing about the specifics of the engine, other than the note that the owner “hasn’t changed it”. It does start, run, shift, and drive well according to the listing. It does have an automatic transmission based on the console shifter in one of the interior photos. Based on the VIN it should have a 351 cubic inch, Cleveland V8, connected to a three-speed automatic transmission.

Inside is a lovely, well-kept, deluxe interior. According to the listing, it has rear window defogger, which is said to be an incredibly rare option. Being that the car is from Ohio that would probably be a very helpful feature. The black leather complements the exterior yellow paint nicely. This is the combination I think of in my head when I hear of a Mach 1. Probably because I have a Hot Wheel that looks similar.

Also, because it is an Ohio car, the seller says that the undercarriage is in good condition, but there is no photographic evidence to show what it looks like. The floors and trunk all look to be in solid form and the seller says that they believe all the panels are original. The car looks amazing for its age and condition, but there isn’t a lot of information as to how and why it is that way, which may need some explaining.

    The seats are upholstered in vinyl, not leather.

      With Comfortweave inserts. Nicer in warm weather.

    Only 19K in this crazy market with two days to go? (#feeling glad I live in an economy where some can look at spending $19,000 on an old hobby car and say “only :-))

    There are three things wrong with this car. (1) I don’t like yellow cars, (except for race cars and taxis). (2) Too expensive for my wallet . (3) It isn’t mine. (he says weeping and wiping his eyes) (But, honey!! It’s a 351 Cleveland!!!)

    The ’69-’70 Mustangs look just as good today, maybe the best looking Mustang of all time, as they did years ago. Shame that style was only around for two years.
    Thirty years ago was 1989, not exactly in this cars early stages. Wonder how it was treated for the first 19 years…

    Another great car at a reasonable price!! Is this really happening??? It would be a little better if it were a 4 speed car!!
