Description
 
Matching numbers with just 50,566 original miles. Original interior, recent repaint in correct Calypso Coral, detailed engine bay, known history from new. A quality Boss with an awesome pedigree.

As you undoubtedly already know, the most critical part of a car like this is its pedigree. So let’s start there. This car has had just two owners from new, with the first owner keeping it for almost 30 years. It shows just 50,566 original miles and still carries its original D0ZE-6015B engine and close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission. The interior is completely original, save for the carpets, and if you’re an expert who knows where to look, you’ll find all the serial numbers stamped into the bodywork and sheetmetal match the VIN. It was given a comprehensive restoration in the mid-90s and more recently a fresh coat of Calypso Coral paint that’s just jaw-dropping in person. This is an extremely high-quality Boss 302.

Three years ago, the car was repainted simply because it was showing signs of age that were not in step with the rest of the car’s condition, so it was stripped to bare metal and refinished. In fact, it was repainted twice simply because the first pass didn’t quite nail the correct Calypso Coral color, so the body shop was ordered to start all over. The results were worth the effort, as it has a miles-deep shine and an exact color match to the original swatches of Calypso Coral found in the deepest recesses of this highly original car. An MCA head judge was enlisted to install the reproduction Boss 302 stripes, which were revised for 1970 into the most memorable look ever worn by a Mustang. Correct emblems were installed throughout (almost all of them are original to the car) and it’s worth noting that this car came from the factory with both spoilers and the rear window slats.

As I mentioned, the interior is almost entirely original, which should tell you something about the care and use it has had over the years. The carpets were replaced recently but given the quality of everything else in the car, they do not stand out as too fresh. The seats are black Clarion Knit buckets that show exceptional detail and minimal wear, even on the high-traffic areas. A woodgrained steering wheel matches the instrument panel and glove box lid, and they all show excellent surfacing and minimal fading. Factory instruments are a little faded but are entirely functional and have been joined by an aftermarket oil pressure gauge that monitors that wondrous Boss engine. It also carries a somewhat rare AM/FM stereo radio that still works properly, as well as a clock on the passenger’s side, which sadly does not. In back, the trunk is correctly detailed with a reproduction mat, correct space-saver spare tire with jack assembly, and ultra-clean sheetmetal and seams. There are no surprises hiding inside this car.

The heart of the Boss is, of course, the engine. This is the original, numbers-matching engine for this car and it has been correctly rebuilt to stock specifications save for a Pertronix electronic ignition and coil, both of which are easily remedied if you’d like to go back to stock. Remarkably, this car retains both its original emissions control equipment and factory rev limiter (now disconnected), features that are almost impossible to replace. Correct aluminum valve covers replaced 1969’s chrome versions and the intake manifold is unique to the Boss. And unlike so many of its siblings, it retains its cast iron exhaust manifolds, which help with noise and heat and don’t seem to hurt horsepower output one bit. The only other notable modifications are a set of aftermarket mufflers that give it an awesome soundtrack and a set of radial tires on original Magnum 500 wheels (which were ordered with this particular car).

The original Toploader close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission is topped by a correct Hurst T-handle shifter and there’s no clutch chatter or other issues, just smooth, effortless power. Originally fitted with race-ready 3.91 gears on a Track-Lok limited slip, it has been retrofitted with a set of 3.00 gears in the interest of civility, but on a 9-inch rear end, changing the pumpkin is a rather easy proposition. The undercarriage was neatly detailed during the restoration but now shows about 4000 miles of use. Both the exhaust system and gas tank are recent and it carries a set of expensive Koni shocks at all four corners. Despite its racecar aspirations, this Boss starts easily, idles well, and is very docile in traffic.

Documented with a Marti Report and original owner’s manual, plus restoration receipts from the past 15 years, this is a no-stories Boss in excellent colors with an awesome pedigree.
