1970 Mustang Sportsroof factory Grabber Orange (originally white interior) Fastback Az SW survivor
FAIR RESERVE ... bid on it to win ! This is one of my fav personal cars Ive had about 20 yrs now But think its time to let it go so others can enjoy it. I love this car, but also need to thin the heard some as I only drive it like once every few months. You cant drive it anywhere without people breaking their necks trying to get a look at it while in traffic. Its been in the restoration stage for the last 15 yrs while also being a driver once in a while

BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This car came from the factory in Grabber Orange and its been here in AZ or NM for many yrs. When I got it, it was faded blue and I decided to paint it back to the original color. Ive only put maybe a few thousand miles on the car in the last 15 yrs. It looks great at any angle, but does still needs some work and sad to say I see the paint lifting on the hood which Im not to happy about. For 15 yr old paint thats never been garaged much I guess I cant complain but. Currently the car has some 2003 Mach 1 17" wheels and tires on it (as youll see in the various pics, Ive had probably 3 or more sets of rims on the car over the yrs) It always runs and starts for me, a little cold blooded sometimes. Trans has a small leak and after a few months it needs a quart of ATF. Also, the dashpad is just set back in for now for driving purposes, but I had it out a few months ago working on the AC ducts and some wiring I was trying to clean up. Not to mention its cracked now and I was going to replace it anyways. Leave as is or Im sure some people may want to make it their own and change some stuff. Best of all is the lack of rot and rust most of these cars experienced after 45+ yrs. Lots more info below:
DONT BID UNLESS YOU HAVE THE FUNDS IN HAND BUILD ANYWAY YOU WANT, NO HARM NO FOUL ! Excellent Investment / Clean Clear Arizona TitleIf you have under 10 feedbacks, Ill be emailing you if you bid to make sure you are legit, if we do please reply or we will cancel your bid. Up for Auction: I wont end it early, sorry.
DRIVETRAIN: I believe the engine is the original 302 2v motor along with the C4 trans etc. Motor makes no weird noises and runs great for its age. Only mod on under the hood are the 86 Mustang GT Finned aluminum valve covers. AC is all connnected but not been charged for several yrs. Just a nice clean original looking 70 Sportsroof you could drive all the time and enjoy. Trans shifts great, Ive even got a 2nd gear scratch from time to time not expecting it. Original hwy gears in the 8" rear.
INTERIOR: take a look at the pics, its used but works fine for a driver. Originally it did have a white interior, it was changed to what you see now before I bought it. If I kept it I would easily change it back to the white, such a awesome combo and rare. As mentioned before the dashpad is loose and not fully bolted in at the moment, pretty sure all the gauges work, minus the gas gauge for some reason and I did put a new sender in a few yrs ago. Aftermarket CD player works fine. I did install new door weather stripping about 5 yrs ago on both door and body. Also has new trunk seal too. So you have to give the doors a little more push when closing them because its still so new. Dr door only opens from the inside if I have time Ill pull the panel off and fix the clip.EXTERIOR: the body very straight for it and was very clean before we painted it. Its a bummer the paint is having the issues on the hood, but I think it could be fixed and blended easy enough where for a drive it would be fine. Its not a show car. I did paint the rear panel for a Boss look and added the Ft Spoiler too. I also I did a sequential LED brake light kit too yrs ago, which failed a few yrs ago. The company sent me a new module for under the dash, I dont think Ive installed it yet. Im also pretty sure I have the outter rear window trim for the car too. Never got around to popping it back on, the black look back there really didnt bother me. The rear window seal is only a few yrs old too. The front may be too. I had plans on keeping this car for many more yrs. But I have like 15 cars and dont take the time to drive it more. Ive had alot of fun with it. You cant drive down the road without people giving you thumbs up and people wanting to see it when you are getting gas. It commands alot of attention.SUSPENSION: the suspension looks normal from what I can Only thing I did on it where some shocks over the years and think I did some bushings up front 1500 miles ago. I DID add the 1" rear blocks in the back to drop the car, but after that I didnt touch the front because it sat fine. Steers and handles very well for its age. I was going to do a quicker ratio box if I ever needed to rebuild it.Minimal rust or rot on the car, nothing like an Eastcoast car. The AZ climate has been good to this car. Maybe the lower door edge may have a few bubbles at worst. Check out ALL the pics below ----->it may take a full minute for them all to load if you have a slow connection, so be patient AND looks for the extra scroll bar on the right side. Az gets maybe 12" a yr of rain and Az very dry climate. more info AFTER the pics etc. There are 100 large pics.
Probably The BEST represented Stangs on Ebay. Shows you all the good as well as any bad. We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars. People wait months for a car this solid to come up for sale and even if you have to pay shipping to your area, it still beats paying a body shop to hopefully fix a rusty car for weeks. Survivors are getting harder to find ! I know alot of people Would want to BOSS clone this car, but to me its a nicer car then that.
Also, if you buy a car thats been "restored", who knows what surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating. People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are fast, for a quick buck and quality suffers.

I was rinsing the car off today after taking the cover off and found a few more cracks in the paint. Specifically pass door and top of trunklid. I dont want to oversell the car, and its NO show car, but still a great car to own, finish restoring the interior and personally Id leave the paint as is and just enjoy it. It still has alot going for it but could use some more work in areas. Mostly now Interior (and paint repair) if the new owner wanted to. Mechanically the car has No major issues at all. IM going to add some updated pics by Wed trying to show the areas with the issues. Could prob use a nice coat of wax too on the top of the car mostly. Its been under a cover off and on in the AZ sun for 15 yrs now, and some of the pics above are from one or 2 summers ago.
