Thread: Finally found my wife a car!!

  1. #1

    Finally found my wife a car!!

    Explore Kenny Brown Performance today!!
    Thanks to my good friend Mustang Pete (sent me the Add) we were able to pick up this 70 Mach 1 for my wife....a really solid start to a build I have been wanting to do for a while for the women who makes it all happen and puts up with my Crap constantly.... just wasnt able to find the right canidate, she has always wanted an older fast back...I even went to Carlisle and found nothing in our price range and this was right in my back yard, well in the next town anyway...I hope she likes it when its completed..plans are for a light resto and some mods....going ot leave the 351C 4 barrel Auto for now..Dont really know alot about these older cars so going to be looking for some help along the way..

    Congrats on the find, Chet! Looks like a solid base to work from. I've always wanted a '70 for myself, but it will probably never happen unless I inherit a spare garage somewhere. Kinda got an eye for a Grabber Blue '70 Boss (doesn't matter: 302, 351, 429), if I only had somewhere to keep it.

    Thanks Bruce ...sorry we missed you at the show...My wife originally wanted a 67 but she really liked this one..I know of a 70 Boss 302 grabber blue drag pack car with 35K original miles, I could not afford the 100K price tag though..

    WOW....Congrats!! Very nice and a great pick.
    Knowing what I know this classic muscle mustang is in some very good hands.

    I love the dashboard in these, very vintage, nostalgic, and timeless (no pun intended with the CLOCK):


    I'm sure this one is going to clean up real nice!!

    You done well bud!!!! I wouldn't have let it go either if I had the cash, the cash to buy it wasn't the issue, but the future cash I knew it was going to need to make it right scared the crap outta me LOL

    Honestly I thought it would be bought and flipped, so I am glad to see you with it Chet!
