This 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 has been fully restored and is a fantastic investment grade muscle car. The 1969 Boss 302 was a special model Mustang developed by Ford for racing homologation in the SCAA race series. Because the program was run in secret, the head designer would often be asked by other employees what he was working on, his standard response was simply “The bosses car” which is where the nickname was born and adopted. As a result, 1,628 Boss 302 Mustangs were built in 1969 and sold to customers for road use. What made the Boss unique was its engine setup, essentially it was a 302 Windsor fitted with Cleveland heads to allow it for flow better. Other than the head change it received a strengthened engine block, 8 valve cover bolts instead of the usual 6, High-strength steel connecting rods and smaller spark plugs to make more room for the valves. Although most of the changes were centered around the engine this wasn’t the only difference. The car needed to handle, stop and steer so a wide range of other components were upgraded along with specific styling like the side stripe, black bonnet and headlight black outs. These days, Boss 302’s are highly sought after by Mustang collectors around the world.
This particular Boss 302 was built at the Dearborn Plant on the 2nd of May, 1969. The car was fully restored in the US before being purchased by its current owner here in Australia. The current owner is an avid collector and the car has been part of his collection here for approximately 12 years. While started regularly the car has never been registered since arriving in Australia.
The Boss is finished in its very desirable and original factory colours of Calypso Coral with Black interior. It is powered by a 1970 dated, warranty replacement Boss 302 engine and is backed by a four speed manual transmission. Power is fed to the rear wheels through the original differential. Factory equipment on this car includes power steering, power brakes, front and rear spoilers, colour keyed racing mirrors, tachometer, AM Radio and more. The factory fresh look externally is completed with a set or original Magnum style wheels with period correct Goodyear Polyglass tyres.
The sale of the car includes a copy of the Deluxe Marti report which confirms it original specification. These ’69 Boss cars don’t come up very often and would make a great investment grade muscle car.
