Back in 2002, Ford ran a commercial with then-president Bill Ford Jr. asking the age-old question: if you could have one car for the rest of your life, what would it be? Naturally, Bill chose a Mustang with a "throaty V8". Given his name and position, that was probably a pretty easy wish to grant, but it certainly isn't so easy for the rest of us. That said; if you've been searching high and low for a top-notch, investment worthy Mustang with big power and plenty of curb appeal, this pedigreed Boss may be the perfect answer. Ground-up restored and fully documented, the car features a legendary, 302 cubic inch V8, a tough Toploader transmission, factory power steering, power disc brakes and a striking color combination. Forget just sitting at the show - this is prestige, comfort and drivability wrapped in a timeless vintage shell!
Sold through Semmes Motors of Scarsdale, New York, this all-American pony was passed from its first to its second owner almost immediately. That owner, proudly possessing the car for the next three decades, gradually transitioned it from daily driver to unraced weekend warrior and, circa 1980, stored, original gem. In 2000, the Ford was adopted in to the Gary Whitman Collection where it received a detailed, ground-up restoration. And today, thanks to impeccable maintenance, this thoroughbred's correct Calypso Coral pigment presents exceptionally well, highlighting crisp body lines that are favorably accented by classic Boss war regalia.
For 1970 the Mustang received a smoother body, a less aggressive face, a flat rear valence and a variety of balanced trim tweaks. The idea was to tame looks that some believed were hindering sales and better the car's performance in crucial SCCA Trans Am events. At the leading edge of this super slick Boss, a correct, Mustang-branded grille hangs bright halogen headlights between familiar 'fender fins', a pristine bumper, clear parking lamps and an aggressive chin spoiler. At the top of that grille, an optional shaker hood leads the eye to like-new glass that's framed in satin-finished wipers, correct sport mirrors and straight stainless trim. At the sides of that glass, re-fashioned quarters combine with chrome-trimmed marker lamps and classy chrome door handles to provide an aggressive, yet finished appearance. At the back of those quarters, correct Sport Slats descend in to a familiar deck spoiler. And beneath that spoiler, a Satin Black valence anchors an ornate fuel filler and segmented taillights between a fresh "MUSTANG" script, a second pristine bumper and wide-set reverse lamps.
The legendary Windsor 302 needs no introduction. Advertised with 290 horsepower, which just happens to be the same number claimed by Chevy's SCCA Camaro, builders and racers have LONG known that this thoroughbred mill is capable of cranking out some serious oomph. At the top of the spry block, the aforementioned shaker feeds a big Holley 4-barrel that's seated on a correct aluminum intake. In front of that Holley, a traditional points distributor sequences fire between a fresh Autolite coil, a vivid Autolite voltage regulator and proven Autolite Radio Resistance cables. At the sides of that distributor, correct, cast exhaust manifolds funnel spent gases in to menacing, true-dual pipes. And in front of those tubes, a glossy radiator sends water around a shrouded fan via pliable Autolite hoses and tight screw clamps. As you can probably tell, the raucous engine has been coated in thick blue paint and crowned with sweet aluminum valve covers. That clean appearance contrasts well against Satin Black fenders and a full array of tags and decals. And everything, from the car's tagged Sta-Ful battery topper to its correct Autolite rev limiter, looks 100% authentic and complete.
Aesthetically, the bottom of this old school pony has been restored to the same high standards as its striking exterior and clean engine compartment. Behind the motor, a tough Toploader 4-speed, which hangs a correct C8AR-7006-W casting number over a correct "RUG AV" assembly tag, spins a familiar Ford axle. That awesome drivetrain is held off the ground by a fully rebuilt Competition Suspension. At the ends of that suspension, correct power steering combines with power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide competent track capability. Overhead, solid, Calypso Coral floorpans look rust-free and ready to roll. In the middle of those floors, Atlantic Tube pipes funnel roasted dinosaurs through an H-shaped crossover and throaty turbo mufflers. And at the sides of that exhaust, correct Magnum 500s twist meaty F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around galloping horse center caps.
Inside the car, a correct White interior features freshly re-covered seats and simple stainless accents that blend seamlessly with their bright orange shell. Everything from the tight headliner to the pony-branded floor mats appears restoration-fresh. The dash is loaded with rebuilt gauges, features a correct Philco stereo, and looks good in fade-free faux wood trim. At the floor, a traditional Hurst T-handle rides inside a stylish, hard-lined console. In front of the driver, a standard steering wheel spins wood-trimmed spokes around a red Mustang emblem. At the sides of the passengers, 2-tone door panels add a little class. And behind the cockpit, a completely restored trunk features a small spare tire.
