This 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is a real-deal car with its numbers-matching motor. In fact, since it has been in the care of the first owner family for almost all its life, and most of the powertrain (including the four-speed) show the right signs of originality. So for those who want a pony car legend that also has a barn find level history, then this is the speedy classic for you.
A race car for the road, that's what it means to be the Boss. It's a bold car, so it deserves a bold factory color like Grabber Blue. The presentation is far from perfect, but that's the key to this car's charm. It was sold new out of the Charlotte DSO, and the story we're told is that it was with the same family until 2019. In fact, this was hidden away in a garage from 1982 until 2019, and so that's how you can have such low mileage on the odometer. It all comes together for a local car that has a barn find kind of story, and the paint and body will really get people talking about that. Of course, the price on this real-deal Boss 302 still leaves room in the budget if you want to get it to concours status. After all, it's a complete coupe with all the best sporty details, like front air splitter, rear window slats, full-width rear spoiler, and exclusive racing stripe package that are all reminders this was a track car that make it to the streets.
The all-black interior is ideal for the potent Boss 302. This is a highly original presentation with flaws and patina. So once again, it really is a catalyst for telling this car's unique story. It has all the right original equipment, like the fold-flat rear seat, working interior lighting, and even the AM radio is still on display. Of course, what you'll absolutely love is the tingle of performance that you get every time your hand gets a firm grip of the Hurst shifter.
What really makes the Boss 302 special is in the engine bay, and so this is where the survivor-style presentation is particularly important. The high-revving 302 small block is a true marvel, and we have the partial VIN match on the block that makes this one so valuable. Plus, you have the right details, like the non-Shaker polished air cleaner, correct-style decals, and finned valve covers. And while this is a survivor-style look, it fires up and runs with the strength of a meticulously restored classic. That means it has seen the right maintenance, right down to the right supporting pieces, like a newer radiator and battery. The V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and the classic Thrush mufflers give the dual exhaust a nice tune. It has all the right pieces for nice performance, like the four-speed manual transmission, Ford's nine-inch rear end, wide Tiger Paw tires on the iconic Magnum 500 wheels, and power front disc brakes featuring new brake lines.
This is the numbers-matching Boss 302 that has a barn find look and a terrific driving attitude. So if you love a significant power pony that always gets people talking about its history, don't miss this unique coupe. Call now!
