1970 Mustang Fastback Original/Stock 302 / C4 Transmission Power Steering/Power Brakes - Original Grabber Green Odometer: 74,600 This Mustang rolled off the assembly line at the San Jose California assembly Plant October 24, 1969 - specifically for the California market. It made its Way to the Midwest at some point (currently Michigan) and was in storage until about 1 year ago when I restored this Mustang to its current condition. I personally restored this Mustang to be a hassle free, very cool looking, reliable classic ride for myself. However, I recently purchased another vintage Mustang and have decided to sell this one. The person who buys this Mustang is getting a very nice car for the money. This Mustang is very clean inside and out. The body and body lines are nice and straight, and the paint job looks great. The undercarriage is nicely painted - the frame rails, floor pans and torque boxes are rock solid, and more-than-enough parts have been replaced during the restoration to ensure the vehicle is mechanically reliable as well. This is a Beautiful, turn-key, drive and go Mustang - an original classic without the hassles inherent with owning an "old car" as most all wearable components have been replaced with new period correct parts (see the details below). This Mustang is nice driving, solid and reliable. It also turns just about every head going down the street, and gains many compliments along the way. I have listed each vehicle system below by category to display the quality level of restoration this Mustang is at. You will find many of the vehicle systems have been completely restored to "new condition" using either new or re-manufactured replacement parts. It is fair to say - this Mustang is just as it would have been during the era in which it was produced - only better and way cooler ..!. I have access to a vehicle hoist at the auto repair center where all the major work was done. So lifting the vehicle to thoroughly inspect the undercarriage is not a problem. Please call me with any questions, or to set up an appointment to personally inspect the vehicle. My name is Mark ...

We wrap with your questions and emails, and for those of you who hung with us live on our UStream channel, thanks for taking the time. Keep reading for our Q&A module for you to scroll through and follow along, too. Thanks for listening!
Autoblog Podcast #327:
A great many buyers fled from full-size body-on-frame SUVs to car-based crossovers in large measure to save fuel. But that doesn't mean there's still not a buying audience for more traditional truck-based utility vehicles, and those consumers doubtlessly wouldn't mind saving some dollars at the pump, too. According to Motor Trend, those shoppers might be in luck.
That's because the magazine has confirmed that Ford isn't walking away from the full-size SUV segment, and it's poised to do something about its offerings' economy ratings, too. According to MT, global Lincoln director Matt VanDyke has hinted that the next Navigator may drop two cylinders and go with a V6 model - the current model gets just 14 miles per gallon in the city and 20 on the highway from its 5.4-liter V8. The obvious fitment would be Ford's 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6, an engine that has spread like kudzu throughout the rest of the Blue Oval's large vehicle lineup.
Downsized turbocharged engines like Ford's EcoBoost franchise have come under fire as of late for not delivering their EPA fuel economy ratings, but their benefits extend beyond consumption - the 3.5L offers superior power and a better torque curve than the naturally aspirated V8. MT also suggests that Ford's 3.7-liter V6 could form the base engine for the next Navi - it has similar horsepower but a lot less torque than the current 5.4L. That may be less of a problem with the next generation tipped to go on a diet, which could level the playing field somewhat.
Ford had a bit of a recall spree around this time last year, with a pair of issues on the then-new 2013 Escape, followed by a recall of 423,000 2001 to 2004 Escapes because they might accelerate of their own accord. Accordingly, Uncle Sam pasted Ford with a $17.35 million fine because it took too long to inform customers, according to a report from Automotive News.
Ford agreed to settle with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, accepting the fine but not admitting fault. The recall, which afflicted Escapes with the 3.0-liter V-6 along with 217,000 Mazda Tributes from 2001 to 2006 and 2008, was due to faulty gas pedals that could stay down after a driver removed their foot.
Ford issued a statement regarding the fine, saying, "We take the safety of our customers seriously and continuously evaluate our processes for improvements. While we are confident in our current processes for quickly identifying and addressing potential vehicle issues, Ford agreed to this settlement to avoid a lengthy dispute with the government."
