Discover the Stunningly Restored 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Boasting a Unique Rarity 20

When reminiscing about high-performance Mustangs from the '60s, names like the Shelby GT350 and Cobra Jet naturally spring to mind. However, Ford also crafted a couple of striking homologation specials adorned with "Boss" badges – namely, the Boss 429 and Boss 302, both launched in 1969.

The Boss 429, being the more powerful sibling, was developed to homologate Ford's then-new 429-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) V8 engine. It boasted 375 horsepower and 450 pound-feet (610 Nm) of torque, with 857 units produced in 1969 and another 499 in 1970.

In contrast, the Boss 302 was designed as a more track-focused Mustang, intended to homologate the pony for the SCCA Trans-Am series. Adhering to racing regulations, it featured a small-block 302-cubic-inch (4.9-liter) V8.

Though sharing the same displacement as Ford's regular 302, the Boss engine incorporated unique internals, elevating its power output to 290 horsepower – a significant 80 horsepower boost over the standard 302.

Like the Boss 429, the Boss 302 had a two-year production run, with 1,628 units sold in 1969 and a staggering 7,013 in 1970.

Despite not being as rare as the Boss 429, the Boss 302 remains a highly coveted collectible, thanks to its racing pedigree and eye-catching aesthetics. Moreover, some of these vehicles are considered especially rare due to their unique factory options.

Feast your eyes on this exceptional 1970 Boss 302, a true standout among its kind. While Grabber Blue may have been a relatively common color for the Boss 302, this particular example boasts a plethora of unique extras.

As one of the most highly optioned 302s ever built, its Marti report reveals features such as a rear deck spoiler, four-speed close-ratio gearbox, Trac-Lok differential, shaker hood scoop, and white-letter tires.

Additional highlights include a console, power steering, AM radio, tinted glass, heavy-duty battery, and a tachometer. Furthermore, it was delivered with distinctive white seats and white door panels, a choice made by only a handful of customers.

In fact, it is one of just 42 Grabber Blue models outfitted with a white interior, most of which had entirely black interiors. This rare combination adds a striking contrast to the track-oriented classic.

But this Boss 302 is more than just a scarce find – it is also a meticulously restored gem. The owner asserts that the car underwent a no-expense-spared, comprehensive nut-and-bolt restoration, adhering to correct factory specifications and featuring a numbers-matching 302-cubic-inch V8.

A true beauty that captivates in the sunlight, you can admire this stunning vehicle in the video below.
