:::::::::::: Year ::::::::::::

Not much changed in 1970 for the Mustang with the exception of a small scoop on the outside of the headlamps. Also, for reasons unknown to me, the GT model was pulled from the lineup and would not return until 1982.

1970 also brought in a new model, the "Twister Special" which was made for Kansas Ford dealers only. They were available in Grabber Orange Mach 1 with special decals. Ford also manufactured a few Sidewinders that were built in Dearborn and shipped to Omaha and sold in Iowa and Nebraska. These Mustangs were available in Grabber Green, Grabber Blue, Calypso Corral, and Yellow. Stripes were optional and was left to the dealer to install them.

The Boss 429 had a 429 cubic inch hemi head that needed suspension adjustments so it would fit under the hood. In 1970 only 499 Boss 429's were manufactured. They were available in Grabber Blue, Grabber Green, Grabber Orange, Calypso Coral, and Pastel Blue. Interiors were black or white. If you are looking for more information on the Boss Mustang.

There were approximately 800 Shelby's that didn't sell in 1969, so they wound up being pushed out as 1970 models with slight modificaitons to them

Ford created two 1970 Boss 429 Lawmen Mustangs for tour to U.S. troops. Professional wrestler, Bill Goldberg won one of these 1200 horse power animals in the 2003 Barrett-Jackson Auction.
