When your goal is to own a world-class muscle car, there can't be any asterisks on the spec sheet. That's why the restorer of this striking Ford started his build with an all original, G-code Boss 302. A performer from day one, this coveted Mustang is the beneficiary of a high dollar rebuild that transformed it from an immaculate survivor into a fully detailed show stopper. Today, the car sits as an attention-grabbing pavement pounder that's ready to hit the road and dominate the show field!
Before we get too far lets decode the VIN and take a look at the Marti Report that accompanies the vehicle.
• 0: 1970
• F: Built at Dearborn, Michigan assembly plant
• 02: Mustang Sportsroof
• G: 302-4V boss
The Marti report explains that this Boss sportsroof is 1 of only 6 ordered with these paint/trim codes and was ordered with the following options:
• Four-speed close ratio manual transmission
• Traction-lok differential
• F60X15 belted tires w/ raised white letters
• Sport deck rear seat
• Power Steering
• AM Radio
• Decor Group
Wearing a glossy coat of clean, Wimbledon White paint, this pony's current condition is the product of a professional, rotisserie restoration that was completed in late 1993. The car's straight, original sheetmetal was stripped, sanded and bathed in a modern two-stage pigment. And that smooth finish was, after being buffed to a mirror-like shine, trimmed in correct Boss 302 war paint. The classic black Boss stripes start down the hood, dip across the fenders, and travel to the rear of the car, forming one of the most revered and sought after looks of the era.
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, a solid Mustang 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, the fenders combine with chrome-trimmed marker lamps and classy chrome door handles to provide an aggressive, yet finished appearance. And at the back of those fenders, a Satin Black valence anchors an ornate fuel filler and segmented tail lights between a correct decklid spoiler, a fresh “MUSTANG” script, a second pristine bumper and wide-set reverse lamps.
Motivation is provided by the original numbers matching Ford small block that, thanks to a recent rebuild, makes killer horsepower. That raucous mill wears a matching VIN and was covered in traditional blue skin and centered between crisp, Satin Black fenders. At the top of the motor, a correct Holley 4-barrel rides between finned aluminum valve covers and below a chrome air box that wears the 302-4V BOSS stickers. In front of that carburetor, a red MSD coil sparks the MSD distributor, which sends power through Taylor Spiro Pro wires. At the sides of the motor, long tube Ford headers send spent gases into a true dual exhaust system and, in front of the motor, a large radiator sends water through hoses outfitted with tight hose clamps. The engine bay, much like the rest of the car is a beautiful blend of old school horsepower and modern componentry.
Aesthetically, the bottom of this clean Ford has been restored to the same high standards as its striking exterior and pristine engine compartment. Behind the motor, a close-ratio 4-speed spins a Ford 9” with 4.10 gears. Holding that awesome drivetrain off the ground is a correctly restored suspension which features factory power steering. At the ends of that suspension, stopping power is entrusted to modern 4-wheel Baer power disc brakes to provide competent track capability. Overhead, clean, oversprayed floorpans, look solid and ready to hit the road. In the middle of those floors, a fresh true-dual exhaust system pipes roasted dinosaurs through an H-shaped crossover and through chambered mufflers to create a glorious sound. At the sides of that exhaust, 17” Torq Thrust 5-spoke rims twist 255/45R17 Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval rubber. And everything, from this Mustang's stainless fuel tank to its factory sway bars, is fully sorted, ready to show and itching to go!
Open this coupe's doors and you'll find nostalgic Detroit styling that's wrapped in traditional Blue vinyl. Restored bench and bucket seats sport freshly pleated covers that, judging by their appearance, enjoyed very little road time. The vintage aura continues onto the dashboard, which offers a pleasant layout of analog gauges. And in front of the driver, a speed-drilled steering wheel spins a beefy black rim around a classy pony insignia. At the floor, a traditional Hurst T-handle rides inside a stylish, hard-lined console. Behind the passengers, a completely restored trunk features a correct jack, correct lid decals and 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.
