In 1970, the Boss models were getting all the attention, but affordable convertibles like this lovely Diamond Blue example were vastly more popular. Today, if you're looking for affordable drop-top Mustang fun, this one is a great choice. An unmolested survivor, it offers all the same open-air goodness as it did in 1970 and still at a price that's a fraction of its overpowered siblings. The light Diamond Blue paint is almost white, giving this clean Mustang ragtop a bright disposition and a unique look. And yes, that does look like original paint, so obviously someone has been taking good care of this Mustang for decades. You'll note that as a result, there is no filler, no rust, no replaced panels, and no other questionable elements to this car's history. The doors fit the way they did when it left the factory, and you can see that build quality was quite good. That vintage paint still carries a good shine and only modest signs of use and age, so it remains wholly presentable and a virtual slam-dunk for those of you interested in preservation-class show competition. The blacked-out grille, all the glass, and the three-element taillights are all in excellent condition, instantly identifying this as one of Ford's best pony cars. White really is the best choice with the Diamond Blue paint, and like the exterior, the interior is almost 100% original. High-back buckets show modest wear and stretching, but it's remarkably good after more than four decades of sunny days. The back seat looks even better, and thanks to black carpets, it still feels personal and stylish inside, not blindingly white. A twin-cockpit dash layout puts round instruments ahead of the driver, all of which are fully functional, with the controls for the heater system and the original Philco AM radio in the center stack. A big chrome shifter lever manages the C4 3-speed automatic, and the surrounding carpets are in outstanding condition given the rigors of sunlight. Only the black power convertible top is a replacement piece, offering a correct folding rear window, and the mat in the trunk is probably too nice to be original, but it looks correct. An F-code 302 cubic inch V8 is under the hood, and while not a snarling road-race-ready machine like the Boss 302, it's torquey, reliable, and makes a great V8 burble out on the road. In the relatively light Mustang, performance is entertaining and maintenance needs are quite modest, so you can drive without worries. Correct Ford Blue paint on the air cleaner, valve covers, and intake make the engine bay look bright, but one glance at the satin black inner fenders and firewall will convince you that this car is extremely clean. Interestingly, power steering is included but power brakes are not, and there's plenty of evidence of recent maintenance work, so you know it runs right. A fresh exhaust system sounds great with a single tailpipe, and with 2.70 gears in the 8-inch rear, it's also remarkably economical on the open road. Magnum 500 wheels are ideal on an early Mustang, with these wearing 215/70/14 white-letter radials. A classic open-air Mustang for less than the price of a used one at the local lot.
