1970 Mustang Mach 1 Drives for the First Time in 25 Years!
My friend's Mach 1 got parked in his parents' driveway in 1986, where it sat non-operational until they made him haul it to his own place in 1999. I bought the car from him then and stored it until now (2011). I had the 351 Cleveland 4V engine and FMX transmission professionaly rebuilt, then put the car back together this year. This video shows the first time that the car has moved under its own power in 25 years!

Ford Mustang Mach1 Pure Engine Sound!
I have filmed this cool Ford Mustang Mach1 during the Cars and
Coffee event in Paris this month! Many supercars were present that day,
like the Ferrari Enzo, Mclaren MP4-12C, new Ferrari 458 spider, 4x
Lamborghini Aventador LP700, LP670SV and many more!! I think this car is
one of the coolest American cars ever made! I hope you like it! :)

1970 Mustang Mach 1 NOS (New Old Stock) Parts
Back in the mid-1980s, a friend of mine bought a bunch of NOS parts to
restore his 1970 Mach 1. In 1999, I bought the un-restored car and NOS
parts from him. Two years later, I moved to Minnesota, and stowed the
parts in the rafters of my garage. They stayed up there collecting dust
for 9 years. It's finally time to sell them. I made this video so I could
link it to my ebay listings.
1970 Mustang Mach 1 Walkaround Inspection
I made this video to go along with my eBay listing (item # 130585837111).
I bought this car from a friend in California in 1999. It had sat
non-operable in his parents' driveway since 1986. I stored the car indoors
for many years, with the intention of restoring it. I had the 351
Cleveland 4V and FMX transmission professionally rebuilt, and reassembled
the drive-train this year (2011). Finances and limited storage space
dictate that I sell her as an unfinished restoration :(

1970 Mustang Mach 1 - My 12-year Ownership in 4 Minutes
I bought this 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 from a friend in
California in 1999. It was not running at the time. It had sat in his
parents' driveway since 1986. I have kept the car in storage for 12 years,
with the intention of restoring it someday. This year (2011), I finally
got around to reassembling the professionaly rebuilt 351 Cleveland 4V and
FMX transmission. The car has now moved under its own power for the first
time in 25 years (see my other vids). Because the tires are so dry-rotted,
I haven't driven the car on the streets.
