The competitive nature of the Sports Car Club of America’s Trans-Am series provided the stage for the introduction of the legendary Mustang Boss 302. Renowned car owner and builder Bud Moore returned to the Trans-Am factory battle in 1969 with Ford, where his drivers pushed Chevrolet's seemingly unbeatable combo of Penske-Donohue to the wire in one of the most competitive Trans-Am seasons on record. However, it would be the 1970 season before Parnelli Jones and George Follmer would lead the team to six victories and enough accumulated points to clinch the Manufacturer’s Championship for Ford Motor Co. The Boss model was originally produced in 1969 and 1970, and the name wasn’t used again until the 2012 and 2013 model years. In its first run it was available with a 302-cid small-block or a 429-cid big-block. In 1970 only 7,013 Boss 302’s were built.
This outstanding Boss 302 benefits from a full rotisserie restoration and is powered by its 302-cid V-8 engine which is paired with the optional four-speed close ratio manual transmission with Hurst shifter and 3.91 Traction-Lok rear axle. Built on November 22, 1969, it is finished in White with Black Rhino/Corinthian Vinyl bucket seats. Factory options include rear deck spoiler, F60x15 belted tires with raised white letters, AM radio, and tachometer. Photos of the restoration, a reproduction owner's manual and a framed Elite Marti Report are included with the sale of this Mustang.
This car has presented itself to be handsomely restored and a rare opportunity to own a majestic Mustang.
