History
I have had this vehicle for over 20 years. It is my 6th 1970 Mustang, I have had 4 Mach 1's and a Boss 302. All were all 1970 models. I decided to try something different and build a Shelby clone, but then decided to go a another way. Going for a California Special look. 69 Shelby rear fiberglass, side scoops, and tail lights, Mach 1 front sport lamps, spoiler, and shaker. The project was stall by the birth of my son, but now he is in college and I'm retired. Originally car had 4 wheel manual drum brake and an automatic trans. I changed the brakes to 4 wheel disk. I installed the Boss 302 Trans Am set up in the front and Lincoln Versailles rear end for rear disks. Replaced the auto with 4 speed top loader trans.
Mustang is currently work in progress.
