1970 was another successful year for Mustang's performance image. Parnelli Jones and George Follmer proved to be formidable contenders, piloting their Boss 302s in the S.C.C.A Trans Am racing series.

Drag racers enjoyed the Boss 429 with it's twisted hemi racing heads. Originally designed by Ford for NASCAR racing, it featured 570 horsepower with 420 foot-pounds of torque from the factory! Kar Kraft, a small assembly line in Brighton, Michigan, modified these limited production super cars and installed the potent Boss engine.Technology evolved rapidly.

Turmoil in Ford's upper ranks scaled back 75 % on factory motorsports racing sponsorships. Tumble weeds blew across the finish line at Fords test tracks.

Meanwhile the beautiful 1970 Mustangs received minor, (but noticeable) refinements, making them easy to distinguish from the previous year's model. Sales were tapering off and Ford was tooling up to modify the mighty Mach 1 Mustang for it's metamorphosis as it merged majestically into massive muscle-car market mania. Mmm.

Engine selections remained the same as '69 but with two very important differences.The old 390 fe engine was dropped from the lineup. The new race-bred ''Cleveland 351'' was added.

Although just introduced in 1969 the ''351 Windsor'' was a light weight extension of the dependable 221-302 cid V-8s, in 1970 the heavy weight canted valve ''Cleveland'' 351 with it's huge valves and ports was , engine codes remained the same for 351s as 1969, ''M'' designated 351 4V while an ''H'' code stood for a two barrel 351.

Auto makers were feeling opposition by many to the horsepower wars that were getting out of hand.

When the 1970 production had ended and figures tallied, Mustang had sold a total of 190,727 units. This figure was down by over 100,000 from 1969.
