Classic Cars / 18 Comments

Fully restored, 52k on the clock, and priced at under $90k. Someone's going to get themselves one hell of a car.

If you're wondering where the classic car market is heading, just take a look at this pedigree Boss 302, which can be shown and enjoyed in equal measure. It seems collectors are looking for models that are rare or unusual but also fun to drive, and 30 odd years after this particular model was assembled in Michigan it received a full restoration in Maryland. The result: an amazing looking show car reflecting some of Ford's best designs.

Wearing completely rust-free body panels that have been aligned to near perfection, a super slick coat of correct Grabber Blue paint, topped with a flat black rear decklid and spoiler and Boss side stripes, the finish is superb. The 1970 Mustang received a larger body, more aggressive stance, wider grille and a host of performance and decorative options. A silver finned shaker scoop was retrofitted during the restoration, below which stainless trim traces a black grille that houses chrome trimmed headlights. At the bottom a fresh bumper hangs above an angled chin spoiler that combines with front fenders for a hawkish appearance.

At the rear a chrome bumper caps wide-set chrome reverse lights and dual oval stainless exhaust tips. Under the hood a completely rebuilt, numbers-matching small block 302 V8 creates 290hp and is driven by a wide ratio 4-speed; 15-inch chrome Magnum 500 wheels sit at the corners. Inside, black vinyl replace white Corinthian seats, original gauges load the dash that features immaculate wood grain trim, and a chrome Hurst shifter is topped by a solid T-handle. During the late sixties Ford has some of the best interior designers in the business, as the 1970 Boss testifies.

For $89,900 this is a solid investment in a show car with timeless good looks and some of Ford's best ever styling. You can have fun driving it and know that its value will be easily maintained. RK Motors Charlotte are sure to have no trouble shifting this.
