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 a top-notch, investment worthy Mustang with big power and plenty of curb appeal, this 1970 Boss may be the perfect answer. Ground-up restored and fully documented, the car features a legendary, 302 cubic inch V8, a tough Toploader transmission, factory power steering, power disc brakes and a unique color combination. Forget just sitting at the show – this is prestige, comfort and drivability wrapped in a timeless vintage shell!
The folks at Allen County Motors of Fort Wayne, Indiana took delivery of this all-American pony in March of 1970 and began its publicly traded life roughly three months later. The car's first owner, Edward Bobilya of Fort Wayne, Indiana, flaunted his new daily driver, spent a small amount of time racing and eventually parked the car circa 1974. Fast-forward 38 years to the car's second owner, and its solid, mostly original shell was subjected to a detailed restoration, completed in 2015, that created better-than-factory aesthetics. Today, this Mustang's correct Lime Metallic pigment shows well all around, highlighting crisp style 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 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. At the back of those quarters, correct Sport Slats descend in to a familiar deck spoiler. And beneath that spoiler, 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.
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. At the top of the Ford Blue block, the aforementioned shaker 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 proven Autolite Radio Resistance 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 glossy 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 tags and decals. And everything, from the car's topped battery to its correct Autolite rev limiter, looks 100% authentic and complete.
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 correct C8AR-7006-D casting number, spins a correct Traction-Lok differential around correct, 3.91 gears. A fully 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, primer-coated floorpans look rust-free and ready to roll. In the middle of those floors, an original, true-dual exhaust system pipes roasted dinosaurs through an H-shaped crossover and “Ford” branded mufflers. And at the sides of that exhaust, mirrored Magnum 500s 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 glossy green shell. Everything from the tight headliner to the pony-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 was installed. 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 red Mustang emblem. And behind the passengers, a completely restored trunk features a small spare tire.
