This is a beautiful 1970 Mach 1 that was finished in 2007 and has won many awards for Best paint, Best engine, Best in show and many first place awards.

The engine was rebuilt and I have the invoices and spec’s on every thing that was done to the engine, which goes with the car including most of the invoices for parts and some labor plus the Marti-Auto report. No this is not a matching number car on everything, but is great restoration of the Interior, Body paint, Mechanicals. With unbelievable House of colors paint work which really does not show how nice it is in the pictures, but when the sunlight hits it, WATCH OUT!!
