In February of 1970, Ford introduced a special model called the Mustang Grabber, along with the new Maverick Grabbers , to promote the lineup of "Grabber" colors Ford had that year. According to the factory press release in February of 1970, the Mustang Grabber was available with Grabber Green, Grabber Blue, Grabber Orange, Vermillion (also known as Calypso Coral), and Bright Yellow. All Mustang Grabbers were Mustang Sportsroofs, or fastbacks, with an option on the invoice called "Grabber Special Value Package." Most cars had either black or white interiors, however other interior colors were available. In addition, the Grabbers were equipped as follows:
- Black "C" body tape stripe similar in appearance to the 1969 Boss 302 but without any lettering in the fender area
- 302 2V "Windsor" engine
- Dual sport mirrors color matched to the body color
- Black painted rear taillight panel similar to the Boss 302 but the taillight bezels remained chrome.
- 14 inch standard steel wheels with "Dog Dish" style trim rings and center caps
- Transmission was either 3 speed standard or C-4 automatic

Many Grabbers have been lost to history due to repaints when the stripe kits were not available as they are now to restore the car to it's original appearance. There may be many Grabbers out there that simply look like a plain Mustang fastback. Only the factory invoice can verify a Mustang Grabber. Well known Mustang expert, Kevin Marti, has documented in his book, "Mustang by the Numbers", that there were 5120 Mustang Grabbers sold in 1970.
Marti Auto Works can provide a Factory Invoice for 1970 Mustangs. Considering the years that have passed and the many ends that these and other Mustangs have unfortunately experienced, there is no way of knowing how many of these great looking examples of the Mustang's Golden age are still around.

The Mustang Grabber Registry is dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of the 1970 Mustang Grabbers and to maintain a registry to provide a source of information about the Mustang Grabbers and a way to keep track of how many still exist. It has registered members from the United States as well as other countries. Many registered owners are not members of any club. There is no cost to register and all member information is strictly confidential. All Mustang Grabbers are welcome regardless of their condition, including wrecked, destroyed, or parted out vehicles.
