----------

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 tough Toploader transmission, factory power steering, power disc brakes and a highly desirable color combination. Forget sitting at the show – this is prestige, comfort and drivability wrapped in a timeless vintage shell!

BODYWORK/TRIM

The folks at Beeler Motor Co. of Lancaster, Missouri took delivery of this all-American pony in May of 1970 and began its publicly traded life roughly five months later. Today, thanks to Boss Cars of Gahanna, Ohio, the car's correct Calypso Coral pigment shows well all around, highlighting crisp body lines 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 mirrored 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 taillights between a fresh “MUSTANG” script, a second pristine bumper and wide-set reverse lamps.

ENGINE

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 date-correct powerplant utilizes a forged crank, heavy duty rods, a Comp 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 Autolite coil, a vivid Autolite voltage regulator and 7mm Hi-Temp Radio Suppression cables. 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 marked and tagged radiator sends water around a correct fan via pliable Autolite hoses and tight screw 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 marks and decals. And everything, from the car's Carter fuel pump and correct Autolite rev limiter to its Ford alternator and reproduction Autolite battery, looks 100% authentic and complete.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Aesthetically, the bottom of this old school pony 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 1972 Boss wide-ratio assembly tag, spins a correct Traction-Lok differential around correct, 3.50 gears. A correctly rebuilt suspension holds that awesome drivetrain off the ground. 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, oxide-coated 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 traditional 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 correctly replicated inspection marks, is well planned and professionally executed!

INTERIOR

Inside the car, a correct Black interior features freshly re-covered seats and simple stainless accents that blend seamlessly with their vivid orange shell. Everything from the tight headliner to the “BOSS 302” branded floor mats appears restoration-fresh. The dash is loaded with rebuilt gauges, features a correct Philco stereo, and looks good in monochromatic trim that's as fade-free 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 standard steering wheel spins fat spokes around a modernist Mustang emblem. Behind the passengers, a completely restored trunk features a small 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.
