In 1968, Ford began seeking a small-block V8 that they could race in the SCCA 1969 Trans-Am road racing series. The race series limited engine displacement to 305ci so Ford developed a unique 302ci V8 with a thin wall block casting that contained a high nickel content. The engine also featured 4-bolt mains, screw in freeze plugs and heads with a canted valve design. With this engine design, Ford employed Larry Shinoda, a former GM designer, to come up with a new Mustang to mate with the motor.
Shinoda designed a Mustang that was sleeker than its standard Mustang counterparts and included options such as a signature rear horizontal window shade and blackout hood. When asked by coworkers what he was designing, Shinola simply told people he was designing "the boss's car", since the project was to be a secret. Hence the name that stuck - the Boss 302 Mustang.

This 1970 Boss 302 is the result of a rotisserie restoration that was obviously completed with close attention to detail. Originally built at the Dearborn plant, this car is powered by a 302ci/290hp V8 tied to the factory close-ratio 4-speed transmission with factory 3.91 Traction-Lok differential. Finished is it's original color combination of Calypso Coral with Vermilion interior, this Boss 302 stands out among the crowd. Marti report is included with the car confirming options it was originally ordered with, including rear deck spoiler and Shaker hood.

Unless stated otherwise, mileage shown on odometer is exempt and unknown if original.
