History
Found this 70 Mach 1 on eBay. Went up to Forestville just West of Santa Rosa. My wife could not believe I purchased a car in pieces. This was perfect for a total rebuild the way I wanted. I wanted something different than the standard Mach 1 with a smooth clean look. This is what I now have after 2 years of total rebuild. Luckily there wasn't a ton of rust which made things easier. I had to replace just about all of the mechanical items due to being broken, rusted beyond repair or missing. I also added a lot of modern items. Sequential tail turn signals, electric windows, third brake light integrated with interior dome light LED lights inside and out. Custom front side lights like the 2014 and newer have next to the head lights (2 lights horizontal). New engine with a 4R70W trans which was rebuilt by Art Carr in Huntington beach, Ca. All new front and rear suspension from TCI with Wilwood brakes with HR99 wheels dressed with Michelin 245-45-18 tires.
