Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
This pro-built 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 tribute has every trick you could want wrapped in an iconic color. Beneath the full Boss appearance packs serious firepower in the form of performance V8, five-speed manual, and a reworked suspension that keeps it all tight with some pretty serious hardware. Theres no such thing as a factory Boss 302 roadster... but there should have been. Thats why this faithful tribute was created. And you can tell they invested plenty getting the details right. The name Grabber Orange is appropriate because it snatches your attention and doesnt let go. Its a legendary Ford color that really makes enthusiasts pay attention. But more than iconic, the color also means you can really distinguish the aggressive dark features of the full Boss 302 striping. The deep black package here combines with the hood scoop, chin spoiler, and blacked-out tail panel to be a real mean machine. Plus, there are great custom touches like the darkened headlamps and the special edition 18-inch Shelby American Racing Torq Thrust wheels it all creates a Mustang that isnt afraid to show its sinister side! The interior does this roadster style right. Because this one stays open to the world, the top of the windshield, rear panel, and the tops of the doors are all smooth and well finished. Plus, the roll hoop provides a real racers appeal while matching with the exterior black accents. In fact, the whole interior is a well-coordinated affair with Grabber Orange returning on the door panels and the classic stripe against the custom leather seats. And speaking of the seating, those front buckets with plenty of bolstering a five-point harnesses is ready for when the roads get twisty. Plus, you have a small-diameter Grant sports steering wheel and a full set of AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges to keep you firmly in control. But this interior isnt all business. You also have a JVC AM/FM/CD/XM touchscreen interface with DVD, Bluetooth, SatNav, and an iPod hookup. This combines with the full speaker system, including the big Rockford Fosgate subwoofer in the back to deliver killer sound even when youre approaching triple-digit speeds. The tidy engine bay is painted to match the interior and exterior to deliver equal parts beauty and power. Plus, the etched valve covers, matching air topper, alternator, serpentine pulleys, and much more are polished to an award-worthy shine. Beneath this lies a 351 cubic-inch Windsor V8. If that wasnt already tantalizing enough, the motor was rebuilt around 2,300 miles ago with go-fast goodies like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock performer heads, and long tube headers that feed a growling Flowmaster dual exhaust. The upgraded T5 five-speed manual transmission w/overdrive keeps you one downshift away from turning a comfortable highway cruiser into a performance juggernaut. The same performance-ready attitude also goes for upgrades like the fully-adjustable coilover suspension, slotted & vented front disc brakes (w/ABS), and strong four-link rear end. As you look over the whole picture file (especially the undercarriage photos) you can see the upper-class quality that comes from investing in a frame-off restoration. This is a one-of-kind custom that turns heads and keeps you all smiles. So dont miss your opportunity, call today!
