RealRides of WNY - 1970 Mach 1

True confession time. This 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1is from my second-favorite Mustang model year (the favorite being 1965). Those who know me won’t be surprised to hear that the Mach 1, desirable as it is, isn’t my preferred model though. That honor goes to the base (non-fastback) two-door hardtop (like the one pictured at the bottom of the page) — preferably with a straight-six

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Torino

We came across this 1969 Ford Torino GT SportsRoofat a cruise night at the Urban VFW-AMVETS Post in Lancaster (maybe one of the few cruise nights we’ll see this year, sad to say). The Torino GT came standard with Ford’s 302cid V8; this one, according to the fender badge, has the optional 351. The GT was also available as a more traditionally styled two-door hardtop (below), as well as

RealRides of WNY - 1969 Shelby GT350

Came across this Shelby GT350at the 2015 Buffalo History Museumcar show. Based on Ford’s Mustang, the Shelby was available in both convertible and SportsRoof (fastback coupe) models, as well as in GT350 and GT500 guises. As you can imagine, the numerical difference refers mostly to the drivetrain — this GT350 came standard with a Ram-Air 351cid V8 rated at 290 hp, while the 500 had the

RealRides of WNY - c1975 Ford LTD

A few unusual things to note about this Ford LTD, c1975, seen a few years ago in Dunkirk: it doesn’t seem at all rusty; no one has turned it into a police car clone; and it’s wearing a set of out-of-character wheels and tires. Many surviving big Fords of this era are former patrol cars, or former taxis (many of which were themselves former patrol cars), probably because it was still a

RealRides of WNY - 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1

The muscle car era may have been nearing its peak when this 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 hit the showrooms. A 351 2V V8 was standard; options started with the 300-hp 4V version, and moved on up to the 428 Cobra V8. Ford advertised the car as having “a balanced wide-tread chassis and sports car design suspension.” In addition to the usual choices, it was also available in a range of special
