Calypso Coral 1970 Mustang Grande hardtop owned by Rick Pierce from Bowling Green, Kentucky. This Mustang still has it's original 351ci engine. This was our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting 8-17-08. Rick has this story to share, "I rode in the car when it was new. It belonged to a friend of my family. I purchased the car in August of 1977 to drive to college and have driven all over the Southeast until now. The Grande was disassembled and painted by a friend, which turned into a three year process. It was completed two years ago . I have had it at several local shows and someone will always come up and ask 'What is it?' or tells me 'Ford didn't build a Granada in 1970'. So many experts out there."

They were certainly pushing sports. In this 1973 magazine ad, a golfer is shown behind the car. The ad says, "What makes Mustang different is the way it looks, handles, and makes you feel."
