If you're going to make the investment in a top quality restoration of your 1970 Ford Mustang fastback, why not go all-out and clone it into a slick Boss 302 tribute? Vivid Grabber Orange paint, upgraded interior, and a beastly 302 V8 under the hood make this a true Boss on the streets. But its price means you're not afraid of the open road.
Grabber Orange is the quintessential Boss 302 color, and combined with Larry Shinoda's graphics, it's one of the most iconic Mustangs of the muscle car era. This tribute does a great job of capturing the sleek race-inspired look, which includes the chin spoiler, hood scoop, rear window slats, and a wing on the rear deck, all of which seem to make the sportsroof look even longer and lower than it is. The paint job is quite nice, and the stripes were expertly painted on because this is a top-quality build. The full package is good enough to make everyone look twice. Plus, the satin black hood treatment, hood locks, and blacked-out tail panel are little details that only enhance the mean machine attitude. Chrome bumpers sparkle against the paint, providing a cool contrast that really works on the early Mustangs. And finally, the black and chrome accents unite perfectly on the iconic Mag wheels.
Black high-back buckets were part of the Boss formula, too, and this car wears them well thanks to fresh seat covers. It matches the black carpets, door panels, headliner, and dash. But this sea of darkness is broken up nicely by wood paneling inserts on the side armrests, surrounding original quad-pod gauge panel, on the gearshift handle, and surrounding the AM/FM/cassette stereo. But probably the best looking wood is saved for the sporty three-spoke NRG steering wheel with Mustang center cap.
As much as the restoration produced a fantastic interior and exterior, it's what's under the hood that you'll love the most. This rebuilt 302 cubic-inch V8 perfectly blends factory original appearance with plenty of performance upgrades. Beyond just the tidy wires and hoses, you see an amazing level of detail with all the right decals in the engine bay. Plus, the Edelbrock fined valve covers are just a reminder that this V8 breathes in deeply through an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. The motor exhales with a powerful authority thanks to long tube headers that feed the dual exhaust. Around 2011 when the owner believes the engine was being rebuilt, the FMX three-speed automatic transmission was, too. Just like the V8, it has been enhanced with a shift kit to make sure you get the most out of the added power. The way the motor fires up you can tell it's a true driver's car, and power steering, upgraded front disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich T/A tires only enhance this feeling on the road.
Complete with restoration receipts and a Marti Report, this is the kind of muscle car that gives you the assurance to go spin the tires with authority. So if you're quick enough, you can have all the confidence of being the Boss without having to pay the price. Call now!!
