About “Dad's Toy”

1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1

This is my dad's car, straight from California. It currently has 35k original miles and about 1000 miles on the rebuild (since 1999). A lot was invested in this car and it shows. The car was painted the same color as Eleanor (but before the movie came out), and it goes like a bat outta hell.

The car was dyno-ed in Cali after the rebuild at 415rwhp and 430rwtq.
