1970 MACH ONE - GRABBER BLUE

1970 was a very historical year for the Mustang. It was the LAST year for what now is known as the FIRST generation Mustang. The Mustang since 1965 through 1970 was by far the leading “Muscle Car” seller with Camaro way back in second place.

This particular Mach One is about as good as it gets.  The color is Grabber Blue with 4-speed, front and Rear spoilers, Magnums, window Slates and the BEST part, of course, the SHAKER HOOD.    

This particular Bad Boy was a part of the Famous John O’Quinn Museum before O’Quinn unfortunately passed away. At the time, I believe he had the largest car collection in the world. The collection consisted of around 1300 cars!!!!!!!!

Here are some facts about the car that will be interesting to you. Partial serial number “0” means 1970; “R” - San Jose built; “05” - Mach 1; “M” - 351 Cleveland engine with 4- barrel carb. More facts of interest are the door tag info; 63C Mach 1; color J Grabber Blue; Trim 3A black knitted vinyl; Axle 9 3: 25 to 1; Trans 6 4-speed; DSO   San Jose, Ca. To me, Grabber Blue is one of the colors that REALLY high-lights the lines and the aggressiveness of these Mach’s. It is one of the most sought after colors and desired Mach’s there are. This Mustang runs and drives great and is very responsive and fast. It has had an improvement made to get some nice easy horsepower from installing an Aluminum high-rise intake.  The nice thing about a Mach 1 with a 351 Cleveland 4 Barrel is that it makes a lot of horsepower but runs nice and cool and is very easy to work on.
