Mecum Auctions included among the lots at its next event at Glendale, in arizona, a superb Ford Mustang Mach 1 1970 masterfully restored with beautiful restomod style and a superb 70 liter V8 427
La Ford Mustang Mach 1 of origin manufactured between 1968 and 1978 is not just one of the most valuable versions of the classic Ford Mustang (first and second generation), but also one of the most brutal muscle cars of the golden age of American motorsport
This model was originally born as “ package performance ” optional for V8 versions of the Mustang for the model year 1969 and its success was such that it remained in the model catalog for no less than 10 years, until the end of the seventies This name was briefly used again between 2003 and 2004, during the fourth generation of the lesser-known model in Europe, although it was recently rescued again to baptize the most powerful and radical version of the current atmospheric range of Ford Mustang.
This impressive black specimen was prepared in 2014 by the American Collector Specialties workshop with frame parts from Detroit Speed specialists and JRI Although it largely respects the original appearance of the model, it also has some modern touches, hence this piece is classified as a restomod style Among the new invoice items, there are large diameter rims (curiously similar to those of the Mach 1 current) with wide, low profile tires, but you can also find a superior carbon fiber air intake
Although the aesthetics respect the original configuration, the truth is that under the leaf, we find a very different model, since its creators used high performance materials and components We found a new aluminum subframe to accommodate a more modern suspension system which also has new large Wilwood brake discs Under the front hood, we find a huge 70 litre Cobra 427 whose potency has not been announced but which can be assumed to be well above 500 horses
Inside, we find a modernized cabin with top quality materials and, Curiously, the front seats of a Porsche 911 generation 997 The entire interior is lined with black leather and features very racing elements, such as the chrome lever with a black ball knob or the aluminum pedals
