  • 1970 Mustangs were mildly restyled. Headlight configuration reverted to a single seven-inch lamp on each side, this time inside the grille opening, Simulated scoops took the place of the outside headlights. The rear taillight panel was flat rather than concave and the taillights are recessed.

    Here's a performance feature that's standard on the BOSS yet not even available on some Trans-AM competitors. a functional front spoiler. This unit helps to keep air out from under the car, make it more stable, cut drag and even increase gas mileage. It's effective at speeds in excess of 40 miles per hour and a real plus when operating on the track


  • Ford Mustangs grew to their all-time largest for the 1971 model year. Wheelbase was up an inch to 109, length increased 2.1 inches to 189.5 and width grew 2.4 to 74.1. The latter was accompanied by a tread increase to allow the 429 cid big-blocks to fit with ease.

    Engine choice still remained high; a total of ten different engines were available on the 1971 Mastang.

    Base engine was the 250 ci six-cylinder on all models except the Mach 1 which came with the 210 hp 302 and the Boss 351 which got a 330 hp version of the 351.

  • 1969 was the second major restyle for the Mustang. Every dimension increased with the exception of wheelbase (it remainedat 108 inches) and height, which was lowered by 1 1/2 inches.

    Including the two Boss engines, there was a total of ten differentengines available. Headlight configuration for the first time went to four, four-inch units. The fastback body style, called SportsRoof, came with simulated rear side scoops and a spoilered rear. Convertibles and hardtops used a simulated rear quarter panel vent.
