BARN FINDS: 1970 Mustang Mach 1, 4-speed

Barn find of the day.  This 1970 Mustang Mach 1 was found covered in dirt and surrounded by clutter unworthy of its company on a dead end road somewhere in Alabama. 40,970 Mach 1s were built in 1970. This  one appears to have original Medium Lime Metallic paint under the dust and dirt. A 351-cubic inch engine and 4 barrel carburetor look original and match the wear of the 103k miles on the odometer. The four-speed transmission speaks volumes about this green machine's original purpose. Go fast and look good doing it.
Hood scoop, add stripes and hood pins. That equals a muscle car!

Barn find dreams are made of 4-speeds and good original seats like these.

Somebody needs to oil the hinges.

In 1970 the Mach 1s had only 2 headlights, instead of 4 like the 1969 models.

Call it a Fastback or SportsRoof, its a Mach 1 in a barn!

Showing 3k on the odometer, I'm guessing it's 103k.
