I was fortunate to find a very good ’70 Mustang Mach 1 fastback (as you can see… someone cloned a Boss 302) in Pompano Beach, Florida. I sold a ’56 T-Bird through this dealer, Cool Car’s, and while delivering the T-Bird, I returned home with the Mustang in my enclosed car hauler. This car had a 302-4V, 4 speed manual transmission and a positive-track 3.30:1 rear end. My main interest is the body, glass and interior. I’ll replace the engine, drive train, rear-end, all suspension. I’ll repaint, upgrade/redo the interior, new 17″ wheels and tires, 13″ big brake kit, Flow Master exhaust and add security & sound.
As you can see, the car is pretty straight and has good glass.

The interior is pretty complete also and gives me a very good starting point for my project. The instruments even include a rare and working tachometer!
Pretty nice interior... will upgrade with side support upgraded seats
Let the dismantling begin! This was a good weekend to begin the actual dismantling to kick off the Boss 429 project. It started off with a quick add on Craigslist to sell the Engine, drive train and the Wheel/tires. Within two hours…. everything sold!! So, proceed to put the Mustang on jack stands to start the process.
