Back in 2002, Ford ran a commercial with then-president Bill Ford Jr. asking the age-old question: if you could have one car for the rest of your life, what would it be? Naturally, Bill chose a Mustang with a “throaty V8”. Given his name and position, that was probably a pretty easy wish to grant, but it certainly isn't so easy for the rest of us. That said; if you've been searching high and low for an affordable, investment worthy Mustang with big power and plenty of curb appeal, this 1970 Boss may be the perfect answer. Ground-up restored to great condition, the car features a legendary, 302 cubic inch V8, a correct Toploader transmission, factory power steering, power disc brakes and a long list of optional equipment. Forget sitting at the show – this is prestige, comfort and drivability wrapped in a timeless vintage shell!
According to Kevin Marti of Marti Auto Works, this super clean coupe was bolted together in Dearborn, Michigan on July 3rd, 1970. Here's a thorough breakdown of the car's original door data and optional equipment:

The folks at Rye Ford in Rye, New York took delivery of this all-American pony on July 9th, 1970 and began its publicly traded life a mere 14 days later. Now, we all know that ANY genuine Boss 302 is a rare piece, but color, trim and optional equipment can shrink those numbers even more. Of the 7,013 Boss 302s Ford churned out for the 1970 model year, only 81 left the line with this combination of paint and vinyl. And, after admiring its fully restored beauty, you'll begin to wonder why that number wasn't significantly higher. The car's correct Medium Blue Metallic pigment shows well all around, highlighting crisp body lines and tight panel gaps that obviously came from the hands of a skilled body man. And those lines are accented by classic Boss war regalia, which employs a combination of paint and decals to form one of the most revered looks in vintage Automobilia.
For 1970 the Mustang received a smoother body, a less aggressive face, a flat rear valence and a variety of balanced trim tweaks. The idea was to tame looks that some believed were hindering sales and better the car's performance in crucial SCCA Trans Am events. At the leading edge of this super slick Boss, a correct, Mustang-branded grille hangs bright halogen headlights between familiar 'fender fins', a pristine bumper, clear parking lamps and an aggressive chin spoiler. At the top of that grille, an optional shaker hood leads the eye to like-new glass that's framed in satin-finished wipers, correct sport mirrors and straight stainless trim. At the sides of that glass, re-fashioned quarters combine with chrome-trimmed marker lamps and classy chrome door handles to provide an aggressive, yet finished appearance. And at the back of those quarters, a Satin Black valence anchors an ornate fuel filler and segmented tail lights between a fresh “MUSTANG” script, a second pristine bumper and wide-set reverse lamps.
The legendary Windsor 302 needs no introduction. Advertised with 290 horsepower, which just happens to be the same number claimed by Chevy's SCCA Camaro, builders and racers have LONG known that this thoroughbred mill is capable of cranking out some serious oomph. Correctly restored, and still churning to factory specifications, this Ford's high-nickel powerplant utilizes a forged crank, heavy duty rods, a solid lifter cam and beefy Cleveland heads to set the pace for the meanest cars at the track. At the top of the Ford Blue block, a finned and painted air cleaner feeds a big Holley 4-barrel that's seated on a correct aluminum intake. In front of that Holley, a traditional points distributor sequences fire between a fresh coil, an Autolite voltage regulator and Autolite Radio Resistance plug wires. At the sides of that distributor, correct, cast exhaust manifolds funnel spent gases into menacing, true-dual pipes. And in front of those manifolds, a big radiator sends water around a correct fan via Autolite hoses and tight tower clamps. As you can probably tell, the raucous engine has been trimmed in chrome and crowned with sweet aluminum valve covers. That bejeweled appearance contrasts well against Satin Black fenders and a full array of decals. And everything, from the car's correct Autolite rev limiter to its tagged Autolite Sta-Ful battery, looks 100% authentic and complete.
Aesthetically, the bottom of this old school Ford has been restored to the same high standards as its striking exterior and clean engine compartment. Behind the motor, a tough Toploader 4-speed, which wears a correct RUG-AW close-ratio assembly stamp, spins a 9-inch rear end around competent, road-ready gears. Holding that awesome drivetrain off the ground is a correctly rebuilt suspension which mixes Satin Black paint with bright blue shocks. At the ends of that suspension, correct power steering combines with power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide competent track capability. Overhead, solid, undercoated floorpans look rust-free and ready to roll. In the middle of those floors, a throaty, true-dual exhaust system pipes roasted dinosaurs through an H-shaped crossover and welded turbo mufflers. At the sides of that exhaust, mirrored Magnum 500s twist meaty F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around galloping horse center caps. And everything, from this Mustang's stainless fuel tank to its factory sway bar, is well-planned and professionally executed!
Inside the car, a correct black interior features freshly re-covered seats and simple stainless accents that blend seamlessly with their awesome metallic shell. Everything from the tight headliner to the fade-free carpet appears restoration-fresh. The dash is loaded with rebuilt and re-chromed gauges, features a correct stereo, and looks good in wood trim that's as vivid as the day it rolled through the showroom. At the floor, a traditional Hurst T-handle rides inside a stylish, hard-lined console. In front of the driver, a Rim Blow steering wheel spins a bright wood rim around a tri-color Mustang emblem. Behind the passengers, a correct sports deck seat hides a completely restored trunk that features a collapsible spare tire. And, like most first generation Mustangs, this Boss' design and detailing is impressive proof that 60s-era Ford definitely employed some of the industry's best designers.
Naturally, our sale includes the aforementioned Elite Marti Auto Works Report.

With small block power and timeless styling, you'll turn plenty of heads without sacrificing comforts and conveniences like power steering and power disc brakes.
