AutoHunter Spotlight: 1970 Mustang Boss 302

Ford tries to create a better Z/28


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this restored 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302. Of course, it’s powered by a Trans-Am-inspired 302ci V8 backed by a four-speed manual transmission. Features include limited-slip differential, folding rear seat, rear window louvers, rear spoiler, and modern stereo upgrade with Bluetooth. Finished in yellow with black vinyl interior, this 1970 Mustang Boss 302 comes with a Deluxe Marti Report and a clear title.

During the four-year restoration, the exterior was finished in the original color of Bright Yellow (code D) with black Boss 302-specific stripes. Features include front chin spoiler, added Shaker hood, color-keyed sport mirrors with driver’s-side remote, and black taillight panel. A walk-around video can be seen on the auction page.

A set of 15-inch reproduction Scott Drake Magnum 500 wheels is wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires.

The front bucket seats and the rest of the cabin are upholstered in black vinyl. Features include folding Sport Deck rear seat, new Borgeson power steering system, center console with storage compartment, Hurst shifter, and RetroSound AM/FM radio with Bluetooth.

The instrument panel consists of a 120-mph speedometer, 8,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level and coolant temperature. The odometer reads 88,935 miles, but the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown.

Power is provided by a correct 290-horsepower Boss 302 engine, which features 10.5:1 compression, a high-nickel-content block with four-bolt mains, and performance heads with canted valves and solid lifters. It is paired with a rebuilt RUG-AW Top Loader close-ratio four-speed manual transmission that includes a new clutch assembly.

This Boss 302 was factory-equipped with an independent front suspension and 3.91:1 Traction-Lok differential. Braking is provided by power front discs and rear drums. A dual exhaust system exits at the rear.

The auction for this 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 ends on Monday, April 24, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. (PDT)

But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart.
