AutoHunter Spotlight: 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302

Refinished performance pony equipped with a G-code 302cid Boss V8 engine


Up for auction on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302, a model created to compete in SCCA’s popular Trans-Am Series.

“Beginning in 1969, the Mustang was offered with Trans-Am racing series-inspired performance packages and this example from 1970 bears a Boss 302 designation, so-named for its drivetrain,” the auction states in the muscle car’s listing.

This Boss, coming from three years of garage-kept ownership, was refinished in the mid-1980s and changed from the factory Bright Gold Metallic paint to Grabber Yellow over an original and straight body. In addition, hockey-stick stripes and Boss 302 decals were placed in the factory-correct locations.

Other exterior features include chrome bumpers and handles, a black lower front air dam, color-keyed racing mirrors, rear window louvers and a rear deck spoiler.

According to the seller, the all-black interior was re-trimmed using all original materials, including the vinyl high-back bucket seats, door panels, dash and headliner. Woodgrain trim is found on the dash, door panels and steering wheel.

Also found inside is a  T-handle Hurst shifter, push-button AM/FM radio, and pop-out rear quarter windows.

Power comes from a G-code 302cid 4-valve Boss V8 that’s been upgraded with a Holley 750-cfm carburetor and paired with a 4-speed close-ratio manual transmission and a 3.50 conventional rear axle.

The odometer shows 48,286 miles, although true chassis mileage is unknown.

This Mustang Boss’s auction ends July 21 at 11:40 a.m. PDT.

  1. Boss’s such as this need to be left in their original factory build. Changing the paint color & attempting to dress up the engine bay takes away from the value of the car. Just my opinion.
