1970 Mustang road the coat-tails of the successful introductions in 1969 with only small changes. The side coves were still gone but so was the simulated rear wheel air scoops. The air scoops moved to the front wheels as two simulated air intakes on the outside of each headlight. Taking up less room, the headlights were integrated into a larger grille opening. The Mustang grille logo remained the same 1969 smaller horse on a rectangle of red, white, and blue but moved to the center of the grille. The tail lights where also recessed into the rear panel. The Mach 1 option has honeycomb trim on the rear panel between the tail lights, ribbed lower aluminum rocker panel moldings with the Mach 1 lettering, a non-functional hood scoop (Cobra Jet and Super Cobra Jet engine options came with a functioning Ram Air hood scoop), etc. One other body change was to the fastback which lost is rear quarter window which was optionally louvered. GT options where 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 intense competition from the Barracuda, Camaro, Challenger, and Firebird; made Mustang lose one-third its sales.
