Yet another super cool Mach 1 has come to us. This one wearing a single repaint of Calypso Coral with Marti Report spec’d White Hood Stripe to match the Deluxe White Interior. This one has the options you always hope for and still wears original sheet metal.
This is a great looking car in Calypso Coral. The panels are solid and original FoMoCo units. The paint presents nicely with a good shine and a deep gloss. There are some surface imperfections visible on close inspection but this one is still easily nice enough for cruise nights & sunny day driving.
Inside the factory White Deluxe Interior shows very nicely. It is a very tastefully done combination by the designers with soft cushioned door panels and comfortably bolstered seats. Easily one of the best interiors of the era. The interior was just treated to new seat upholstery, door panels and dash pad. The original components were sun baked and while they were decent, they just deserved to be replaced. As a testament to the condition of the car we opted to leave the original carpet in place. It does show some wear but still presents very nicely for original.
Under the hood the 351 was nicely massaged by the folks at Madcap Racing Engines in Denver Colorado. The receipts catalog the parts used in the build. Dyno sheets show that it made 327 Horsepower & 345 lb/ft of torque at their Mile High Denver location. The engine revs extremely smoothly thanks to the high quality balance job. The power is impressive as well, especially here at sea level. With Long Tube Headers and some throaty exhaust, it sounds great too.
The Tremec Transmission is a great upgrade with a nice, easy first gear and a 5th Gear Overdrive. The Tremecs are nearly bullet proof and should last you the life of the car.
This Mach has Power Front Disc Brakes making it a cinch to drive in traffic. They have excellent ‘bite’ and stop straight n true.
The wheels are 17” Aluminum Magnum 500’s. They fit very nicely, handle excellent and really improve the drive with a quick turn in.
70 Mach 1’s have been enjoying a huge resurgence in price & popularity. This one has the right options documented by the Marti Report and it sits in that hard to find ‘Nice Driver’ condition.
