“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.
