1970 Boss Is Selling at Mecum's Las Vegas Auction

This rare Mustang is full of old school style and muscle.

One of the most highly desired Mustangs to emerge from the muscle car era is the old-school cool Boss 302. Purpose-built as a Trans Am road-racing qualifier, the Boss Mustang was the brainchild of Larry Shinoda, who is also responsible for the Camaro Z28 as a former GM employee. One of his first efforts with the Blue Oval was the successful classic Mach 1. Given a short two-year production run, Ford only built 1,628 Boss 302 Mustangs for 1969 and 7,013 cars for 1970. This incredible example of a 1970 Boss 302 Ford Mustang is a great example to start your collection. A recent mechanical work includes tune-up and carburetor rebuild will ensure it’s ready to go when you mash the gas.

Under the attractive shaker hood, you’ll find that this Mustang Boss 302 is powered by a numbers matching 302 cubic inch V8 engine and is backed by a close ration 4-speed manual transmission. It’s rated at 290-horsepower and that is funneled into a V-code rear end.

Around 5 years ago, this Acapulco Blue 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 302 was restored. A binder full of restoration photos will walk the new owner through the work done to their new pony car. It comes with a handwritten log book from original owner showing services and documenting miles, Marti Report, and other important documentation. It also includes the original warranty card, original owner’s manual, and original temporary owner card and plate.
