1970 Ford Mustang

The 1970 Ford Mustang was slightly redesigned from the prior year but the most noticeable was the change back to single headlights. They were still in the grille opening and where the outside headlights used to be there were now simulated air intakes. The taillight panel was flat instead of the concave panel used in the previous years. For 1970 the Mustang also received the 351-cid Cleveland V-8 engine, although there were performance engines available including the 302 and Boss 429 versions.
