1970 Boss 302 Ford Mustang
Born in the Metuchen plant in NJ, this Yellow Boss migrated down to Mississippi where she was sold at the local Ford dealer in Laurel, MS. The dealer installed the power steering and the hood mounted tach.
We know that she then spent quite a bit of time in Oklahoma and in 2011 was sold via the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction to a fellow in MD, who then sold her on to the current owner in 2015.
He's now selling her as he has another Boss and several beautiful MoPars and just needs to thin the stable.
The Marti Report on this pony car shows that she came from the factory with Black Rhino Corinthian Vinyl bucket seats, close ratio 4 speed stick, 3.50 gears attached to a Traction-Lok differential, AM radio and rear deck spoiler. An AM/FM radio has replaced the stock AM and a set of rear window louvers has been added.
In 2007 the car was stripped down and repainted and that included painting other important bits like the axle housing, engine, subframe, etc.
The odometer shows just over 42,000 miles, however, actual miles are unknown. It is believed to be a fully numbers matching car. Although rather difficult to read the stamping (Metuchen was notorious for buggering up the engine stamps and sometimes not stamping AT ALL) the engine date code is exactly in line with the date this car was built. 9J15 codes out to October 15th, 1969 and this car started assembly on 10/14/1969 and sold off on 11/01/69. What numbers can be seen on the engine stamp do correlate with the VIN.
This Boss 302 runs and drives awesome. The stock steel mags are wrapped in BFGoodrich Radial T/A's in 235/60R/15 sizing, front and rear. They are pulled to a halt by power disc brakes (F) and drums out back.
There are some very minor flaws (the right side rear wheel well has a tiny dimple showing, where the rocker panel meets the well) and there is a small crease in the driver seat near the adjuster and a scratch in the rear panel of the driver seat, but overall, this car would be rated an easy 2 on the "Old Cars" 1-6 scale. The undercarriage shows the wear and tear of a vehicle that is driven but well cared for. Properly painted gas tank, rear axle, shocks, all show in very good painted condition, but isn't so clean that you'd be afraid to drive it.
When people think about the Trans Am series of the 60's and 70's this is what people think when you say Ford. Yellow, Boss 302 Mustang.
Although not super rare, only 3800 were made to this color and trim spec.
This one is absolutely ready to jump in and enjoy in whatever manner you see fit.
Despite their profusion, these cars are quite popular and increasing in value.
The owner would like to sell this car so the asking price is $67,000
Any questions, to schedule a time to see her or to make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for the interest.
