When you ask most Ford enthusiasts what their favorite Mustang is, the Boss is always at the top of the list. Between its flashy good looks and legendary motorsports pedigree, it's the platform that officially buried the marque's 'secretary car' stigma. And if you can find a documented Boss that's been correctly restored and has all the right hardware, you can get a serious investment grade classic that's almost guaranteed to produce returns. Well, if you're a Ford fan who's looking for some thrilling muscle that has all the right stuff to be shown and enjoyed, this 1969 Boss 302 is a pony you can bank on! Wrapping original sheetmetal, an original 302/4-speed drivetrain and correct Calypso Coral on Black aesthetics in a 2-year, ground-up restoration, it's the perfect car to cruise AND rule shows with!
Unleashed on the sunny streets of St. Petersburg, Florida, and enjoying a long life in the possession of one owner, this exclusive Ford is one of only 410 Calypso Coral Boss 302s produced for the 1969 model year. Not too long ago, its solid body was the beneficiary of a 2-year, ground-up restoration that sealed all-original sheetmetal in correct, 2-stage pigment. Once that even color was buffed to an excellent shine, a full array of factory war paint tapped an aggressive demeanor that's both classic and fitting. And today, the car sits as a revered collection of well-aligned panels and ridged character lines that commence a better-than-factory appearance.
For 1967, Ford rolled out a bigger, more muscular pony car, and the 1968 and '69 model years saw that design subtly refined. The front of the car is dominated by a sharp, stainless-trimmed grille, which hangs large driving lamps and a patriotic pony emblem between blackened headlights, a flattened bumper, small parking lamps and an aggressive chin spoiler. Behind that grille, a sculpted hood flows to fresh glass, which rides between bright wipers, straight stainless trim, correct Sport Slats and correct, color-keyed mirrors. At the sides of that glass, chrome-trimmed marker lamps frame classic door handles. And at the back of the car, a Satin Black valance founds segmented taillights and an ornate fuel filler between a second bumper, a correct deck spoiler and small, chrome-trimmed reverse lamps.
But hey, never mind all that talk about how pretty the trim is, what really matters is under the hood! Freshly rebuilt to factory specifications, the car's original, 302 cubic inch Windsor utilizes correct Cleveland-style heads, a Comp Boss 302 cam and flat-tappet solid lifters to crank out serious horsepower. At the top of the “DOZE-6015-A” branded block, a painted and polished air cleaner feeds a correct 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, a vivid Autolite voltage regulator and proven Autolite Radio Resistance cables. At the sides of that distributor, restored exhaust manifolds funnel spent gases into menacing, true-dual pipes. And in front of those manifolds, a beefy 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 requisite Ford Blue and crowned with chrome Ford 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 reproduction Autolite Sta-Ful to its factory-spec smog equipment, looks clean, attractive and authentic.
Naturally, the bottom of this awesome Ford has been restored to the same high standards as its striking exterior and pristine engine compartment. Behind the motor, an original Toploader 4-speed hangs a familiar C8AR-7006-D casting number and correct “RUG AG” assembly stamp in front of a proven Ford 9-inch and factory limited-slip. A fully rebuilt suspension holds that awesome drivetrain off the ground. At the ends of that suspension, correct power steering combines with correct power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide competent track capability. Overhead, undercoated fenders and 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, thin resonators and a transversely mounted muffler. And at the sides of that exhaust, Argent Boss wheels twist meaty F60-15 Firestone Wide Oval 60s around galloping horse center caps.
Inside the car, a correct Black interior features freshly re-covered seats and simple stainless accents that blend seamlessly with their deep orange shell. Everything from the tight headliner to the pony-branded floor mats appears restoration-fresh. The dash is loaded with rebuilt gauges, features a familiar Philco stereo, and looks good in monochromatic trim that's as fade-free as the day it was installed. At the floor, a traditional Hurst stick rides inside a pliable boot. In front of the driver, a standard steering wheel spins fat spokes around a red Mustang emblem. And behind the passengers, a fully restored trunk features a small spare tire.

What Customers Are Saying
After hearing good things about the people at RK Motors, I contacted them regarding consignment of my street rod. I found Tony Klein to be a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and forthcoming in our communications. He evaluated my vehicle and made suggestions of enhancements which would help ensure the desired result would be achieved in the marketing of the vehicle. We agreed on an acceptable sale price. Following the completion of the recommended items, I brought the vehicle to RK for consignment. After a thorough inspection and correction of some minor issues at what I considered a fair price, the vehicle was offered for sale. It sold quickly with me receiving the agreed value. I would have to repeat the recommendation that I received. RK Motors does what they say they will do, and obtains for the seller a fair and agreed value. What more could you ask for?Doug C.
