1970 Mustang

     1970 saw a slight design change. Up front, the Mustang now had it's headlights stuck into the grille with scoops on the outer area of the grille set up in a three-line horizontal fashion. Going into the interior, the steering wheel was changed, but the Decor Group option was available for an extra nudge of comfort and beauty. Besides that, not much changed inside or anywhere on the car. As with the 1969 model year, the Boss 302 and 429 were offering such great performance that the Shelbys were becoming "less-needed" and not as exciting. This was the final year of Shelby Mustang production.
