A real-deal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 fully restored, finished in
iconic Grabber Blue, and with a rebuilt Boss 302 V8 that was
purposely tuned for added power and civil street use. This rare
example of Ford's Trans-Am warrior is truly one reserved for the
best collectors who also want to drive their classics. This quality
piece was even honored by being the only 1970 Boss 302 to pace a
NASCAR Xfinity race and a Sprint Cup race, EVER (see our video for
A race car for the road, that's what it means to be the Boss. Since these cars are now first-tier collector pieces, there's just no excuse to cut corners on the restoration, and despite this car's race-bred DNA, it appears to have never been raced or abused. Instead, it's amazingly straight and expertly restored so that there's nothing to get in the way of getting as many trophies at a car show as it would earn on the track. Grabber Blue is a truly iconic Ford color, and this has been expertly applied so the light dances off the special 1970 design features. Another great part of this legend is Larry Shinoda's satin black hood and side graphics that make this a style master. But don't mistake elegance for gentleness. The shaker hood, front air splitter, rear window slats, and rear spoiler are all reminders of this coupe's aggression.
The all-black interior is makes it feel like this Boss is always ready to get down to business. The driver's seat feels like a '70s executive chair, thanks to plenty of premium options that were ordered directly from the factory, such as the Corinthian vinyl seats, center console, and plenty of tasteful wood paneling. Everything looks so fresh and new because during both the restoration and the after care, anything that was not up to standard was repaired or correctly replaced. That's why the factory AM radio still works and the clock is still ticking away. You get the original-style Mustang steering wheel, and beyond that are a clear set of original gauges. In fact, the only upgrade you might spot is the large AutoMeter tach w/shift light. That's there for a very good reason, and that special and correct Hurst shifter sticking out of the center console is why.
What really makes the Boss 302 special is what's in the engine bay, and a lot of attention was paid to getting it right. With a car that looks this good inside and out, it was no surprise that it was chosen to be an honorary pace car for the Darlington NASCAR race in 2015. Because of this, the consignor had a 1970 correct Boss 302 block built to correct specs (only about 150 miles has been added since.) That means a four-bolt main, forged crank, Cleveland-style heads, special aluminum intake, and all the other components that make the Boss tops. But this was not just a textbook rebuild. The people at KT Engine Development worked on turning the track car into a more everyday friendly vehicle. Give us a call, and we'll share the full build details about the modern internals that make this the most streetable Boss you'll ever see. But more importantly, you'll also discover that this fast Ford did not lose it soul in the process. In fact, its 368 horsepower dyno sheet would be the envy of every Boss in 1970. You get complete control over this enhanced power thanks to the close-ratio four-speed manual that feeds the rebuilt 9-inch rear - featuring 3.91 gears and a Trac-Lok limited slip for great take-offs. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and modern Tiger Paw rubber on the those iconic Magnum 500 wheels, and this is truly an impressive package you can drive any time.
You've seen the level of restoration on this one (we bet you even recognized the correct red oxide undercarriage). We even have the owner's manual, maintenance records, and Marti Report to remind you how amazing this coupe is. As you can see by the pictures, the reintroduction of Darlingtons Southern 500 was a great showcase for this fine beast. But all you really have to do is take one look, and you know this is the rare opportunity of a lifetime. Call now!!
