For 1970, the Ford Mustang was yet again restyled; this time it was to tone down the “aggressiveness” that caused they sales to plummet in 1969. In doing so, they went back to single headlamps and simplified some other exterior design elements. Even though Ford restyled the 1970 Ford Mustang to be less aggressive and help boost sales, they sold less units than the previous 1969 Ford Mustang.
Ford also changed out engine options for the 1970 Ford Mustang, going from the previous 351W (Windsor) to a new 351C (Cleveland). The 351C put out roughly 300bhp at 5400rpm.
Ford also produced two unique versions of their 1970 Ford Mustang; the 1970 Ford Mustang Twister Special sent to Kansas dealers and the 1970 Ford Mustang Sidewinders which were sold in Iowa and Nebraska. The “Twister Special” were Mach 1’s with Grabber Orange paint and the “Sidewinders” were available in Grabber Green, Grabber Blue, Calypso Coral and Yellow.
