I got a call this morning from a friend saying he found a 70 ford mustang and if I was interested. even as a die hard MOPAR guy this is my favorite ford. I told him Ya one because #1 its my fav ford and #2 my fiance always wanted a mustang. i go look at it and long story short it's now in my garage. but I'm waiting to see if this is a present for my Fiance' or a one way ticket to the sofa. lol

Even if you get the one way ticket to the sofa, I would say it's still worth the trip there! LOL.

Great score! that sofa joke was quite telling. When I read the subject of your post the first thing that popped into my mind was "geez, I've been waiting for a fiancee' for 20 years!" :lol: I dig the 70's too, I had made a down on a totally stock red grande around 1975. When I came to purchase it a few days later they had pimped it out with white vinyl lace decals and appliance fake basket wires on whitewalls. Needless to say I got my down back. What model is yours, and how about the drivetrain?

Wait a minute.

# 1 You brought a 70' Mustang.

# 2 Your wondering if you'll get in trouble.

# 3 You say the motor is long gone.

This story is quickly going down hill........

As long as you don't spend more on the car than you do the fiance, you should be OK. ;)

If it's a present for the old ball and chain, you better get it running before you give it to her!

Is it just a sportsroof or a Mach 1? Sounds like a good project with a Cleveland 4 spd. Good luck finding a Cleveland. They are getting scarce in rebuildable condition. I have a 71 4 barrel one complete carb to pan...

Well, a '70 can still handle a small trailer if you find yourself compelled to relocate!

Good question freak. Like I said it has an H in the vin but what I thought of fords was all 351's where mach 1's bit there isn't a single marking if that is so. But from what I read it's only a 2 v carb so I'm looking for an answer from the ford guys

H code says 351 that does not have to be the Cleveland . If it was a Mach 1 you would see tags or strips on the outside. Inside the door panels would have a marking also If I remember right.

If you just going to drive it and enjoy it get a roller 5.0 with a 5 speed .It will be cheaper in the long run and will get down the road fine.

I can't believe someone would be upset at getting a car as a present (even a classic needing work) but I guess it does happen. Best of luck.

If the fiance gets upset about you buying a project car and would relegate you to the sofa, don't marry her, she's the wrong girl.
