history: note that the 1969-1970 Mustang Mach 1s were and are today a very high design achievement…simply wonderful lines…these two years are true collector pieces, here is a car that was found from a top quality Mustang expert associate of Fraser Dante at a local car show, a real professional, for sure we can tell how well restored this great 1970 Mach 1 is today since we have the attached fresh Kevin Marti report (LINK), this shows the desirable San Jose car was originally built in Bright Gold Metallic paint with a Ginger Knit bucket seats, now the restoration is so good that without this report, there are no signs of the previous color as the fresh gorgeous Grabber Blue is just everywhere…a great restoration, all of the body panels appear to be factory original stemming from the California history and then ending up in Georgia, the sides are just terrific, simulated rear quarter air scoops, rear deck lid rear spoiler, simulated front air scoop hood with turn signals, flat black painted large hood stripe, has the hood turn tie downs, the lower body and chassis stampings are so very clear that this is a really fine and rare car!!!
engine: here is a famous engine that yields great power with the high torque and the hydraulic lifter heads, now this has a very nicely detailed driven show engine that is presented with the stock air cleaner, here is today a great ‘matching numbers’ as shown with the proper date codes in this report for the Cleveland 351cid engine that go with and match the production date of the car…there are no VIN #s on these engines, even the stock heads have the dates of o.d.8 and o.d.9 match to the build of the car, this is now set up with larger Holley 670 cfm #80670-2 electric choke 4v carburetor, this is set on the Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, this modern combination should yield more power than factory original, this has the steel pipe dual exhaust engine, this 351 cid 4-barrel engine is the best for street performance and all the options installed, factory rated at 300+++ horsepower and a very strong 385 ft/lbs of torque, the very important engine numbers and specs are shown in this (LINK), see the great even engine compression just taken with a very strong 138 to 141 lbs in a dry cold reading just taken (LINK), with the easy to maintain factory hydraulic lifter heads, this only 3 lb. variance is just terrific, fresh tune includes professional timing just set, see the (VIDEO OF THE CAR RUNNING), the engine sounds really great!
Additional work completed: fresh performance Motorcraft spark plug wires and new Autolite performance spark plugs (SEE LINK), now also just installed is an expensive new strong DuraLast Gold battery with 750 cold cranking amps for great starting, has the new proper cables (LINK), this car has the full testing by the staff of Fraser Dante is just completed, the engine bay is just detailed to very nice driven show presentation,
oil/filter: anther extra to protect the engine, Fraser Dante uses very expensive special high-tech racing oil with added zinc content with Valvoline VR1 20-50 to insure long term performance, this is only for early non-catalytic engines that need the heavy duty oil plus the added zinc for lubrication purposes (LINK) for these older engines, very costly and used only from top shops as Fraser Dante,
air conditioning system: here is a very HIGH POINT of this 1970 Mach 1 with the new extensive work by the Fraser Dante shop, the complete air conditioning system is just rebuilt under the direction and hands of the professionals at Fraser Dante to make sure the uprated 134a coolant works well, now installed is the new uprated modern A/C compressor that is better than stock and now set up with all the new fittings, (LINK) hoses plus the new evaporator and drier (LINK), the older type compressor wouldn’t work properly even after the one with the car did not work, then we installed two of the original type rebuilt heavy compressors, these older systems simply have aged out, they did not work, the decision then was made to upgrade the whole system, also note that this newer compressor is lighter and even works better than stock, Fraser then the difficult part is the under dash air delivery system, when this was found at a show and then to the Fraser Dante shop, the cool air was mostly being delivered via the upper defrost vents…now many hours are now spent by our GM who is an expert to fix the flow of air in all vents to make sure this new installation works well, also that the controls will work well and the cool air flow will come out of the vents, if we were to do this whole job for a customer, we would have to figure around $2800 for this professional and very knowledgeable work to complete this system, very few people today can know how to even fix these systems, not the A/C works better than the original with this great installation to ensure proper cooling that is better than the original factory system,
Transmission/axle: here is the very desired heavy duty FMX automatic transmission that is stamped #C9Zp.7006.A, this works just great and shows in the Marti report that this is correct, all the fluids are topped off, road tested to check the 3 speeds in shifting, now see the numbers of the factory rear 9” rear end that is the 3.00:1 open rear end gear, all of the fluids are just checked on this unit, see the (LINK) again for all the numbers today, NOTE: the experts at Fraser Dante and our NASCAR builder could even take this 9” rear end and rebuild with a positraction unit with 3.55:1 ration and expensive Motive gears, this will yield better traction and more low end performance with these lower gears, also we also could install new strong axel shafts (SEE THE LINK OF THE 8” WE JUST BUILT),
Wheels/tires/suspension: here is an expensive set up with the great looking new Magnum chrome wheels, center caps and lug nuts, 15×7 front and 15×8 rears, the new B.F. Goodrich radials TA’s, 235/60/15 front and 245/60/15 rears, a very desired set up, also for great handling note the newer KYB shocks are installed, continuing this fine build, this has new inner and outer tie rods, fresh upper and lower control arms nicely detailed, all the fresh brake lines, the front disc brakes are ‘as new’ with great pads, the rear drums and shoes are just pulled checked and road tested, (LINK),
underchassis and body: here is a really great body and underchassis with all believed ‘as factory’ panels and lower chassis steel, very few of these Mach 1’s from 1969-1970 have the important ‘71’ DSO of San Jose plant, very desirable, please review the special photos in the report that show the simply great original floor pans, the great solid and original torque boxes and the lower very important lower ‘pinch’ welds and the Ford factory numbers that are stamped in the lower rockers (SEE LINK), one can clearly see all of these factory stampings that are rare to find in this solid condition today, great effort is made to show this fine obvious history of this rust free and unmolested chassis and rockers, (LINK), to the best efforts of the Fraser Dante team, the rear quarters are all factory original and so very straight, when one looks at the door jams the rear quarters have all excellent welds that are factory, these well-presented body parts with the great paint is a rare piece indeed, top Driven Show,
Summary: we figure from the work and the detailed of the full front system suspension ‘A’ arms that this initial work was completed just a very few years ago, since the normal rim blow horn does not work as is normally found today, a new separate horn button is just added for safety, we know this was a Driven Show Car as it was in a show is where we found it, now the fresh, fresh Fraser work as described in the above description now just finished, here is a top condition driven show car of a famous design that looks just fantastic and has a great body and chassis, this is a freshly completed restoration of a most solid car, all of the extras work just now completed is shown, the expert build of the uprated air conditioning system is now working great…offered with all the documentation and recent high tech service with our staff ready to speak to our customers with any further details, now offered for Spring 2020 at only $45,950
