THE BOSS 302

The most important Ford of the 1960s, and one of the most significant of the post-WW2 American automobiles, was the Mustang. Conceived by super salesman Lee Iacocca—Ford Motor Company Vice President at the time—to win over younger buyers to the Blue Oval, the new pony car employed many Falcon components. Within five months of launch in April 1964, the Mustang had become the third best-selling automobile in the US and, by June 1967, some 1,500,000 had been delivered. To counter competition from "The General's" Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird, the main rivals in the showrooms, Mustang bodies became longer and wider, and the styling more macho.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Mustang—a Boss 302 in 2-door Coupe with 4-speed manual transmission—first left the Metuchen Ford production line in November of 1969. The new 1970-model year car was painted Bright Gold Metallic and trimmed in Medium Ginger Rhino/Corinthian Vinyl with bucket seats. The list of options installed at the factory included the 4-speed wide ratio manual transmission, Traction-lok differential, Philco AM radio, and shaker hood scoop. The fastback's bodywork has been repainted yellow with black Boss 302 stripe kit during a comprehensive nut-and-bolt restoration. This was performed prior to the acquisition by the consignor in 2005. Inside and out the sporty Boss 302 looks exceptional and factory correct, and the car performed very well on a recent test drive by a Bonhams specialist. The car is accompanied by the comprehensive Marty Auto Works Elite Report, neatly documenting this desirable muscle car. A superb collector car for lazy Sunday cruising, or to enter on one of the many rallies this car is eligible for (e.g. the Texas or Copperstate 1000) this Boss 302 deserves serious consideration.
