1970 Ford MustangI am selling my 1970 Boss 302. It is a real G code Boss 302. It has been for sale several times by different dealers. I was too busy to sell it my self and had two separate dealers take it on consignment. They all assured me they could sell it and then proceeded to price it too high (one had it at $86k and the 2nd had it at $77k). I told them the price was too high but they didn't believe me. It is appraised at $59k. The reason for the lower price on this beautifully restored Boss is that it does not have the numbers matching engine. It is a correct year Boss 302 engine but not the numbers matching that it came with. The transmission & rear end are the correct numbers matching items.
A little history on my Boss. I have owned this for four years. It was a "barn find" out of Washington State. The 3rd owner (I am the 4th owner) had the engine rebuilt. Less than a month after the engine was completed, e passed away. His widow parked the car in their garage and left it there for 7 years. We believe the block was swapped with the current block when it was rebuilt. Unfortunately the wife does not know and the shop that did the rebuild is not sure. The engine runs very strong and it is a joy to drive. It has been driven aprx 1,500 miles since rebuilt.
When I received the car the wife, t was rough and typical shape for a car that has sat for 7 years. The interior was in need of restoration, he clutch needed replacement and the repaint by a previous owner was not correct and flaking off. We took it down to bare metal and repainted it to the high gloss it now has. All original decals were replaced and the bumpers & trim was all repaired and re-chromed.
The distributor was updated to electronic ignition. Original factory power steering was added. A non-functioning rev-limiter was installed. The shaker hood was added by a previous owner. The original radio was updated to a new radio that has the look of an older radio but has newer features including Ipod input.
It is an amazing car that is what I would call a higher end driver, hat will provide years of fun for the new owner. Every time I drive it, t draws a crowd. It has been entered into 3 car shows and won 4 trophies, ncluding the San Diego Mustangs by the Bay show where there was several hundred Mustangs entered.
It is time for me to move on. I am pricing this at a great price. This is a no limit price and will sell to the high bidder.
By the way, t now has BFG Radial TA's with about 100 miles on them
