A few years ago Boss 302 prices began steadily gaining momentum, and at the time we advised our friends and clients to look into the Boss as a smart purchase. Today, cars like this killer 1970 Boss 302 are legitimate six-figure classics which, after years of being undervalued, are beginning to show real movement in the market. In 2011 alone we've already sold four investment grade '70 Boss 302s for $95K (http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/inventory/1970-Ford-Mustang-Boss-302/132612), $115K (http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/inventory/1970-Ford-Mustang-Boss-302/132483), $120K (http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/inventory/1970-Ford-Mustang-Boss-302/132340), and $120K (http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/inventory/1970-Ford-Mustang-Boss-302/132253) respectively. Pedigreed Boss 302s are a perfect example of where the market is heading: collector cars that are not only unusual and rare, but also big fun on the road. If you're a Ford fan who's looking for a thrilling muscle car that can be shown AND enjoyed, this freshly restored, numbers matching Boss 302 is the best value we've had all year!

The beneficiary of a full 2011 restoration which was completed by Daniel's Hot Rods & Body Shop in Jarrettsville, Maryland, this Texas Mustang wears completely original, rust-free body panels everywhere except its front fenders. Demanding nothing less than perfection, the previous owner purchased the car and upon discovering small, but well-done inner patches, decided to track down NOS replacements. $1,800 later the rolled front fenders you see in these pictures were applied and, along with the doors, hood and trunk, adjusted to better than showroom alignment. Once the panels were aligned to near perfection, a thorough block sanding ensued; and a super slick coat of correct Grabber Blue paint was applied, topped with a trademark flat black rear decklid and spoiler, and detailed with a full set of expertly applied Boss side stripes. The result is an amazing looking, no-questions-asked show car which reflects some of the best design Ford has ever created.
For 1970, the Mustang received a larger body, a more aggressive stance, a wider grille and a variety of performance and decorative options. Top dead center on this car's hood is a silver finned shaker scoop which was actually retrofitted during the recent restoration. Below that scoop, bright stainless trim traces a straight black grille which houses chrome trimmed headlights at the sides of a centered red, white and blue Mustang emblem. At the bottom of that grille, a showroom fresh bumper hangs above an angled chin spoiler which combines with the cars ridged front fenders to create a fierce, hawkish appearance. At the sides of the car, new stainless drip rails sit above excellent looking chrome door handles and body matched racing mirrors; and at the top of the car, factory correct tinted glass is framed by straight stainless trim and cleared by silver stainless wipers. Out back, pristine “Mustang” trunk lettering is centered at the top edge of a flat black rear valence which holds a new chrome fuel filler between clear, segmented tail lights. Below that valence, a second show worthy chrome bumper caps wide-set, chrome trimmed reverse lights and oval stainless exhaust tips.
But hey, never mind all that talk about how pretty the car is, what really matters is under the hood. Completely rebuilt to factory specifications, this numbers matching small block 302 Winsor utilizes a heavy duty block design, original, large port, large valve, free flowing Cleveland heads, a race prepped crank, a solid lifter cam, heavy duty connecting rods, forged pistons and an aluminum intake to create 290 SCCA winning horsepower. At the top of the motor, a Ford Blue ram air induction system feeds a correct Holley 4-barrel carburetor which sits between finned aluminum valve covers. In front of that carburetor, a correct Autolite coil sparks an original distributor, which has now been converted to electronic ignition, and sends power through correct Autolite Radio Resistance plug wires. At the sides of the motor, restored cast iron manifolds send spent gases into a true dual exhaust system; and in front of the motor, a correct satin black radiator sends water through correct hoses and reproduction clamps. As you can probably tell, the block has been properly coated in Ford Blue paint and, from its Autolite Sta-Ful battery and correct Autolite ignition module to its correct and hard to find Autolite electronic RPM limiter and reproduction paper hang tags, comes 100% complete with correct ancillary markings and components.
Naturally, the bottom of this clean Boss 302 has been restored to the same high standards as its exterior and engine compartment. Behind the motor, a completely rebuilt numbers matching Toploader wide ratio 4-speed drives a durable, correctly marked Ford nine inch rear end with streetable 3.50 gears. The car's double A-arm front and solid axle rear suspension have been rebuilt with 100% correctly marked OEM-grade equipment which includes correct, modified front shock towers, staggered rear shocks, correct heavy duty sway bars and new stainless hardware. Braking is handled by correct 11 inch power front discs and power rear drums which receive fluid through new stainless lines, and turning is aided by new power steering which was added during the mechanical restoration. At the center of the car, red floor pans which wear a good amount of black overspray ride above a fresh, mandrel bent dual exhaust system that's complete with an H-pipe crossover and great sounding Flowmaster mufflers. And at the corners of the car, correct 15 inch chrome Magnum 500 wheels wear a new set of F60-15 Firestone Wide Oval tires.
Inside the car, a great looking black vinyl interior combines original pieces with restoration pieces to provide a comfortable, well-designed driving environment. The black vinyl seats are new additions that took the place of correct white Corinthian seats which RK Motors will gladly replace if the new owner desires an authentic look. The dash is loaded with original gauges, which include a factory tachometer, and features wood grain trim that's as vivid and bright as the day the car rolled out of its Texas showroom. A correct Philco AM radio sits in front of the cars chrome Hurst shifter which is topped by a solid Hurst T-handle and housed in a correct wood trimmed console. Like-new carpet covers the floor, a tight headliner stretches across the roof, new door panels occupy the doors, and even the seat belts have been restored to great condition for a fresh and show worthy appearance. Behind the interior, a completely restored trunk includes a correct trunk mat, a correct Spacesaver spare tire and correct trunk lid decals. During the late 60s, Ford definitely had some of the best interior designers in the business, and first-rate Mustang interiors like the one in this 1970 Boss are testament to both the cars staying power and its appeal.
Documentation included with the sale of this awesome Mustang consists of a full Marti Report, a stack of restoration receipts and some photos of the cosmetic restoration.
This 1970 Boss 302 is the perfect car to show and enjoy with no worries. Take care of it, maintain it, keep it looking great and it will easily hold its value while you have fun. A high-winding small block 302 wrapped in some of Fords best styling and covered in killer Grabber Blue paint; what's not to love?
