Body Styles (compare years, go back to 1970 summary information)




In 1970, the Mustang underwent minor changes from the previous year's model. The side coves and simulated rear wheel air scoops were removed, and the air scoops were relocated to the front wheels as two simulated air intakes on the outside of each headlight. The headlights were integrated into a larger grille opening, taking up less space. The Mustang grille logo remained the same as in 1969, with a smaller horse on a rectangle of red, white, and blue, but was moved to the center of the grille. The tail lights were also recessed into the rear panel.

The Mach 1 option featured honeycomb trim on the rear panel between the tail lights, ribbed lower aluminum rocker panel moldings with the Mach 1 lettering, and a non-functional hood scoop (Cobra Jet and Super Cobra Jet engine options came with a functioning Ram Air hood scoop), among other features. One other body change was to the fastback which lost its rear quarter window which was optionally louvered. GT options were gone but the Grande luxury package introduced in 1969 remained. This was also the last year of the twin Boss engine options: a 290hp(302ci) V8 and a 375hp(429ci) V8.

In 1970, Mustang sales declined by one-third due to intense competition from Barracuda, Camaro, Challenger, and Firebird.

The 1970 Shelby came in two models: the Shelby GT-350 and the Shelby GT-500, in both fastback and convertible body styles. 1970 Shelbys were carry overs from 1969; and therefore the bodystyle and options did not change. One difference was the hood stripes. In 1970 the Shelbys had two black front pointed hood stripes centered over the outer four hood vents. This was the last year the Shelby was offered. It doesn't appear again until the 2006 model year.
