1970 Mustang Buried in Garage for Almost 30 Years!

Asia's Tech News Daily

How do cars end up being entombed in garages or hidden away in barns or sheds? We imagine there are a host of reasons, but we would bet one of the most common is that the car broke down or was otherwise damaged, the owner didn’t have the time, cash, or passion to fix it, and it was locked away to be repaired “eventually.” But, like that song from the musical Annie goes, repair is always a day away, and such is certainly the case with this 1970 Mustang fastback—or as Ford called it, a Sportsroof.

Only a handful of 1970 Mustang fastbacks were built with the 351 Windsor V-8 and a shaker hood, so this is a pretty cool find. The owner doesn’t have a Marti report on the car, but some research showed that only a few hundred examples were equipped this way.

In 1983, this Mustang was in a small accident and was unceremoniously pushed into the garage to await repairs. Well, there it has languished, damage and all, for decades. The owner even bought a new fender but hasn’t gotten around to mounting it yet. Maybe tomorrow?

Since this 1970 Mustang has a 351 Windsor mill under the hood, it must be a very early 1970 example; 1970 saw the Mustang switch to the 351 Cleveland V-8 with either a 2V carburetor (like this one) or 4V carburetor. The 1970 Mustang was restyled from the 1969 model due to low sales, but the newer version sold even less. Still, we really like the look of these cars, and really hope the owner gets this one back on the road or passes it on to a new owner who will save it from its urban tomb.

Watch the Full Roadkill Episode! Plymouth Duster Farm Find

Love a great muscle car find? Then check out episode 40 of Roadkill, where David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan find a new project car: the Crop Duster! It’s a 1970 Plymouth Duster Freiburger forgot he owned—a result of multiple trades with a buddy, and at least 5 years of neglect in the dirt of a grape farm. Once he was reminded of the car, and with a 440 Mopar big-block sitting on the shop floor (salvaged from the General Mayhem ’68 Charger), it was evident what needed to happen. Freiburger and Finnegan headed up to Steve Dulcich’s farm to drag the Duster out of its moss-covered indignity and attempted to get the 440 in the car and running, driving, and doing smoky burnouts within five days.
