Because of their relatively exclusive production and exceptionally impressive performance, first generation Boss Mustangs continue to command premium prices. Even though 429 cars have dominated the psyche of restorers for quite some time, the Boss 302 has proven, over the past five years, that Ford's storied SCCA racer is a solid, stable investment. On that note, RK Motors Charlotte is happy to feature this sweet Medium Red coupe, a correct, fully documented show stopper that earned 689 out of 700 points in the Mustang Club of America Concours Trailered or Driven class. If you're an avid Ford enthusiast who's searching for an impressive Boss Mustang that's poised to provide fun and value, here's your next classic!
In October of 1969, this razor-sharp fastback was delivered to Louis Still Motor Company of Mountain Grove, Missouri. Then, as now, the car wore vivid Medium Red paint under Black Boss striping that's a perfect complement to Larry Shinoda's angular profile lines. That said, Ford's production-focused assembly wasn't nearly as exacting as the car's detailed, ground-up restoration. And 1970 single-stage just didn't possess the shine and durability of modern 2-stage pigment. This coupe's big presence likely started with big labor, as its laser-straight body is nice enough to impress Mustang Club of America judges. There is little to fault in the car's paintwork, which presents clear reflections and a distinct absence of noteworthy flaws. And overall, this surly Boss is clean, solid and ready to prowl.
Nobody did SCCA Trans Am racing like Detroit, and nobody does pony cars like Ford. When you combine those two dynamisms you get quite possibly one of the coolest muscle cars ever produced. And in the muscle car world, appeal begins with aesthetics. The front of this Mustang is dominated by a sharp, stainless-trimmed grille, which hangs a patriotic pony emblem between inset headlights, a flattened bumper, small parking lamps and an aggressive chin spoiler. Behind that grille, a correct Shaker 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 triangulate old school 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, wide-set “MUSTANG” lettering and small, chrome-trimmed 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 serious oomph. At the top of the spry 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 requisite Autolite coil, a vivid Autolite voltage regulator and Accel Ferro-Spiral Race Wires. At the base of that distributor, a forged SCAT crank helps otherwise factory-spec internals funnel spent gases through modern, long-tube headers. And in front of those tubes, a tagged radiator sends water around a shrouded fan via pliable Autolite hoses and tight screw clamps. During its 2002 rebuild, the raucous engine was coated in thick blue paint and crowned with sweet aluminum valve covers. That clean appearance contrasts well against satin fenders, a full array of tags and decals, and a glossy, Larry Shinoda-autographed hood. And items like correct emissions equipment, a tagged Sta-Ful battery and a correct Autolite rev limiter create an authentic and complete appearance.
One look under this Ford illustrates just how well the car has been cared for in the 20 years since its restoration. Lightly undercoated floors, believed to be original equipment, appear solid and ready to roll. Behind the motor, a tough Toploader 4-speed spins a familiar Ford axle that's fitted with correct, 3.91 gears and a correct Traction-Lok differential. That fully marked drivetrain is held off the ground by a fully rebuilt Competition Suspension. At the ends of that suspension, correct power steering combines with power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide competent track capability. Just aft of the aforementioned headers, large pipes funnel roasted dinosaurs through an X-shaped crossover and rowdy Flowmaster mufflers. And at the corners of the car, polished Magnum 500s twist meaty 235/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around galloping horse center caps.
The car's correct Black interior is believed to be largely original equipment. Correct vinyl seats ride fade-free carpet that's centered on a tough Hurst shifter. The dash is loaded with what appears to be original gauges, features a correct tachometer, and sports a correct Philco stereo that's augmented with an FM converter and modern 6x9 speakers. In front of the driver, a standard steering wheel spins monochromatic spokes around an embossed Mustang emblem. At the sides of the passengers, textured door panels frame correct chrome hardware. And behind the cockpit, a completely restored trunk props a correct jack and space saver spare tire on what appears to be an original floor.
