Right rear view of Raynald's Medium Lime Metallic 1970 Mach 1 fastback. Raynald tells us about the details: "Lots of original factory parts are on the car: all windows with correct date, dash pad, steering wheel, AM radio, exhaust tips, drums, front discs, tie rods, styled steel wheels with paint marks and an NOS spare tire that never touched the ground, wiper arm & blades, wipers motor, front & rear bumpers, antenna, and pop-open gas cap.
Serial Number: 0R05M167372 63C - G - 3A - 7/70 - 71 - 6 - X. The original exterior color is Medium Lime Metallic (code G). The original interior color is black vinyl (code 3A). Its schedule built date was July 1970 (code 7/70). Its district sale office was Los Angeles (code 71). The axle ratio was 3:00 for a standard non-locking (code 6). Its transmission is FMX Automatic (code X).
Paint: The paint is a base coat/clear coat with 40 hours of buffing on laser straight panel. There is two small chips, one on top of the passenger side front fender and one on the driver side rear extension. There is one scratch on the rear valence.
Sheet metal: The hood and rear quarter panel driver side were replaced. The rest is original to this car and you'll find all dates on any part of the body.
Engine & Transmission: Correct 1970 351-4V Cleveland with all
correct date and casting number. The engine block # D0AE-L and date 0E14
for May 14, 1970. It is not the factory engine block but all #s and dates match for this car. The correct Autolite carburetor is sold with this vehicle. The automatic transmission is completely rebuilt and correct FMX type, but it has a D2 casting number.
Items required to make it #1 concours correct: Autolite battery ( presently Autolite cover on standard battery), Autolite distributor cap
(presently no name black cap), Autolite Oil filter (presently a Fram
filter), one engine belt, gas tank without drain plug, air conditioning is complete but non-functional and needs rebuilding, drive shaft joints without grease fitting, correct E-70 X 14 belted white sidewall tires, trunk mat underlayment, and the wheel opening moulding are not correct to this car but were a personal choice."
Check out the underside of the engine compartment. Raynald tells us more, "All bolts and nuts is new with correct markings for this San Jose built Mach 1. All body sealer and undercoating was applied on this car in the correct area. This car did not have the common seen 'red oxide' primer under the floors and rear section but was 'black primer' and was restored the exact same way it was ! Only the engine compartment had 'red oxide' primer and was restored again as it was."
Still under the car. Looking at the transmission and some of the engine from another angle.
And a look at the mufflers and rear end.

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."
Here is a shot of Rick's 1970 Mustang Grande with a fresh coat of Calypso Coral paint on it.
