This Mustang Boss from 1970 has a lot of custom touches to it.

One of the most highly desired Mustangs to emerge from the muscle car era is the old-school cool Boss 302. Purpose-built as a Trans Am road-racing qualifier, the Boss Mustang was the brainchild of Larry Shinoda, who is also responsible for the Camaro Z28 as a former GM employee. One of his first efforts with the Blue Oval was the successful classic Mach 1. Given a short two-year production run, Ford only built 1,628 Boss 302 Mustangs for 1969 and 7,013 cars for 1970. This incredible example of a 1970 Boss 302 Ford Mustang has had a few upgrades and is a great example to start your collection. This particular example shares a 44 year history with the owner.

This Mustang Boss 302 was purchased as a project car, and arrived without an engine. It would go on to receive a Cobra Jet R Code 428 cubic-inch V8 to power the rear wheels. Along with the engine, it has a drag pack oil cooler and period correct shaker hood scoop to compliment the engine, which is backed by a top-loader T-10 four-speed transmission with Hurst shifter. Power is then sent to a beefy 9-inch rear Detroit locker. Braking power comes from disc brakes up front, with drums in the back.

In 1977, the bright yellow paint was redone, and correct 302 stripping was applied. The interior is covered in black vinyl, with woodgrain accents around the gauge panel. Check out the video summary below and place your bid on this old school Boss here.
