The Boss 302 Mustang was designed by Larry Shinoda a former GM employee. The car featured a reflective "c-stripe". The fake air scoops in the rear quarter panel fenders of the regular production 1969 Mustangs were eliminated on the Boss 302, (only), models. A black horizontal rear window shade and a blackout hood were both options. It was one of the first production models with a front spoiler and rear deck wing. The name "Boss" came about when Shinoda was asked what project he was working on, he answered "the boss's car" because the project was a secret Shinoda had called it the "Boss" as homage to the new President of Ford. Changes for the 1970 model year included side "hockey stick" stripes which started along the top of the hood, along with the 1970 grille which replaced the 4 headlights with two vents in the outside position while retaining dual headlights within the grille opening. The dual exhaust system was redesigned, along with the competition suspension and a standard Hurst shifter. The intake valves were slightly smaller, and cast aluminum valve covers replaced the chrome. With a suggested price of $3,720, a total of 7,013 were sold. Standard were disc brakes on the front, larger sway bars, a lower ride height, heavier duty spindles, reinforced shock towers, a four speed manual transmission and the solid-lifter Boss 302 V8 engine with its free-breathing Cleveland style heads, which had valves larger than most motors over a third larger in displacement. This "G Code" engine was rated at 290 hp (216 kW), however modern day tests show the engine may have been largely underrated, with dynos showing in excess of 380 horsepower in some cases. The 1970 car could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 6.9 seconds. The quarter mile took 14.6 seconds at 98 mph........This is a stunning example of a complete restoration with BUILD sheet deluxe Marti report receipts and photos.
