The Golden Era of Trans Am racing ran from 1968–1972 and, in that time, some of the best cars driven by the likes of Mark Donahue and Sam Posey did battle on the track every weekend in an all-out assault to see who was the best. Not to be left out was Ford, whose answer to the Trans Am series was the powerful Boss 302. Built to compete directly with Chevrolet’s Camaro Z28, the Boss Mustang was built for speed and little else.

Offered here is a spectacular example of this great American muscle car with a 1970 Boss 302 finished in Grabber Blue. This is a three-owner car that spent its life in North Carolina and has been meticulously restored to factory specs by noted Ford expert Willard Hunter. This Boss 302 is an MCA (Mustang Club of America) National Gold Award winner that also comes complete with its Marti Report. It was treated to a frame-off restoration where nothing was overlooked in bringing it back to its as-new condition. All its original body panels were retained in the restoration as well as its matching numbers drivetrain. Power comes from its mighty four-bolt main racing-spec 302 cubic-inch V-8 that’s performance-built from Ford with a solid-lifter cam, large-ported heads, forged steel rods, 10.5:1 pistons, and an original 780-cfm Holley four-barrel with aluminum intake manifold. All this power is transmitted to the pavement through a top-loader four-speed transmission. The interior is finished in a two-tone black carpet and dashboard and White Parchment upholstery with bucket seats up front. Its simplistic interior with roll-up windows makes no apologies that this is a car built for speed and only speed. The engine compartment is authentically detailed with correct colors, wiring, and all stickers and markings all in their correct locations. Most impressive is the signature shaker hood that enabled the 302 to ingest huge amounts of fresh air. The appearance of this Boss 302 is nicely accented by its signature stripes, blacked-out front and rear spoilers, and sport slats on the rear window. The period-correct appearance is also completed with a set of Goodyear Polyglas tires mounted on chromed Magnum 500 wheels.

The Boss 302 is a legendary car that represents one of the greatest eras in motorsports. For the very best in a car that doesn’t disappoint, this Boss 302 is more than ready for the open road.
