A numbers-matching 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 in its correct colors and been under the same meticulous care for 28 years. We'll go on with all the juicy details, but we bet you've already checked the price on this rare pony and are looking for our number.
The Boss was all about performance, so Ford gave you all the important hardware up front, and few will argue that the result isn't one of the best-looking pony cars of all time. These coupes are now first-tier collector pieces. Also, despite this car's race-bred DNA, it appears to have never been abused. This car has been under the same garage-kept car since 1988, and the restoration was completed four years later. The maintenance has been exceptional, including updating the restoration about a decade ago (call us for the full story on this very cherished Boss 302.) The result is a level of care that has gone into this Sportsroof coupe is immediately evident. The bodywork has been finished and to the correct Bright Yellow paint shows a dazzling shine, and of course, Larry Shinoda's satin black hood and side graphics are complete. The result is a car that has been benchmarked in many publications and received many awards.
The all-black interior is ideal for the potent Boss 302, and its all-business driver's environment is both comfortable and functional. This car carries a very premium and original feeling, which is thanks in part to having the seats recovered in 2008 to exacting factory standards. A center console was added simply because of the comfort provided by this factory option. But in the middle of that is the industrial-strength Hurst T-handle shifter atop the close-ratio four-speed. So the Boss is always perfect for grabbing gears quickly. While all of that will keep your right hand busy, your left one grabs the factory wheel and your eyes watch the clear factory gauges. The trunk is finished to show standards as well, with a correct mat, space-saver spare, and a complete jack assembly.
What really makes the Boss 302 special is in the engine bay, and so a lot of attention was paid to getting it right. The high-revving 302 small block is ready to compete on the show field or on the track, including a correct non-Shaker air polished cleaner, reproduction decals, properly marked hoses, and even little stuff like the clamps on the correct emissions control system. Finned valve covers give it a racy look, but fans know these cars were built for combat and the good stuff is inside. Four-bolt mains, the biggest Holley Ford could find (it currently wears a 650-CFM unit), and a solid-lifter camshaft give it extraordinary flexibility and the most awesome sound this side of a Can-Am monster. This full setup has been rebuilt in 1994 to stock specifications and the owner says he has put less than 100 miles on it since then. The chassis has been detailed for show, with correct red oxide primer on the floors and just enough Bright Yellow overspray to remind us how the production process really looked. From a performance standpoint, you get all the right features such as the control of the four-speed, Ford's nine-inch rear end, and versatile 3.50 gears. There also front disc brakes and Sigma Grand Prix Performance GT tires on each one of those iconic Magnum 500 wheels.
This is a highly documented coupe with the dealer invoice, owner's manual, Marti Report, and much more. James Brown may have paid the cost to be the boss, but at this price, you're getting a steal of a deal with this well sorted and always in-demand fastback. Of course, you still have to be the first one here to snatch it up. Call today!!!
