Found in the Wild: Everybody Wants You

This is the car that non-car people love. It's a 1970 Ford Mustang fastback. And you have to admit, they're really on to something. I mean, how can you dislike a car with faux cooling scoops adjacent to the headlights and door jamb as well as a spoiler molded into the body shape. And that's before we've even gotten to the engines.




The 1970 Mustang was available with nine engine options. Nine! They ranged from a wet-noodle 120-hp inline-six to a fire-breathing "semi-hemi" Boss 429 big block with 375 "official" horsepower. But the most popular engine for these cars, and what I assume lives under the hood of this featured car is the 220-hp 302 V8.  Despite a 0-60 time likely between eight and nine seconds, the vaunted fastback looks too fast for us to care. 


Just like today, where the GT350 Mustangs make headlines while the V6 cars make up most of the sold units, in 1970, the Boss units grabbed attention while thousands of 302-equipped cars were sold off the lots. With a small block and an automatic, this is the "average" fastback 1970 mustang.


With so many of these modified into drag strip stormers and Boss clones, it's almost refreshing to see this model left largely original. Finding a Mustang in this condition will run you around $10,000. Hardly a bargain and those seeking cheap muscle cars would be better served to find a midsize Buick, Oldsmobile or Ford product. Pony cars might have been the cheapest way to go fast in 1970, but they're now for well-heeled collectors only.
