The time has come to let go.
« on: July 02, 2017, 02:21:02 pm »
 I am selling my 1970 Boss 302 W code car. Car is yellow with VIN 0F02G138726 and a Dearborn car built December 5, 1969.
Age has taken its toll and you can’t slow that down so maybe pass this on to the younger crowd.
Original (78K) mileage 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302. This was a highly optioned Boss 302 with factory components including the W-Code 4.30 locking rear axle, Shaker hood, power steering, center console, tilt steering wheel, Sport Deck seat, decor group, Sport Slats, rear spoiler and Magnum 500 wheels. The previous owner had put nearly $90,000 into performance upgrades. The original 302 has been supplanted by an R302 race block motor that has been bored and stroked to 355ci and is paired with a Tremec TKO 5-speed manual driving a 4.10 rear locker. To balance the added performance, the previous owner added sub-frame connectors, upgraded controls arms and leaf springs, Koni shocks, larger front sway bar and Wilwood brakes at all four corners. The original numbers matching drivetrain comes with this car along with virtually every other factory part that has been replaced. Marti Report, upgrade receipts and the original owner’s manual and window sticker also included.
Upgraded Items include:
Boss 302R bored and stroked to 355 ci, Tremec 5 speed, 9” locking rear with 4:10 ratio and new 31 spline axels. Wilwood 4 wheel disc brakes, 750 Holley, Polished rocker arm covers along with original set, sub frame connectors. Set of 16” magnum wheels with Yokahama Advan 032 tires 245 50 16 and 225 50 16. Set of original 15” magnum wheels with Eagle ST 245 60 15 and 265 60 15. On car is 15” X 8 Mini lite wheels with Goodyear Eagle yellow letter tires. Upgraded control arms and swaybars (of course Originals are included. FPA ceramic coated headers. MSD ignition. Lakewood blow shield.
Car is in great condition and drives awesome. It is a one of a kind with original parts ( see pictures). Even has the spare, jack and air canister. Car is clean everywhere top and bottom.  The original numbers matching engine, transmission, rear end included. Also other stock componets like rev limiter, carburetor, suspension, brakes, radiator, shifter, exhaust manifolds, 31 spline axels, and snorkel. Car is very unique. 75k

I inspected this car for Paul when he bought it, it was a really nice car at that time. With a lot of spares.

I have loved the Boss 302 since I got back from vacation in the far east in 1971. Nothing would please me more than selling this to someone who loves Boss 302 Mustangs like me. That said if I can't find someone on here than I need to move on to get this sold. Meaning maybe let it go to a dealer. The car is a great car and would make someone very happy. Like I said it's just time for me to let it go. Don't worry I have two more so you won't get rid of me on here.

Like I said I would rather sell to someone on this site. Maybe all the spare parts are no interest to some. The car could be put back to original and there would be enough to build another car. it also looks like I probably was out to lunch on the price. From reading ads it looks more like 60K would be a better number for just the car. If Interested in the numbers matching spares, another 15K would get them. I am willing to talk to anyone on this site that will give it a good home.

I would expect within a week or so I'll be letting this go to a dealer. Time and age waits for no man so I have no choice in this. Age is catching up with me.

I looked at this car for Paul when he bought it, with the spares package and some initiative, you could fully restore this car, pull the drivetrain that's in it now put that drive train in a Cobra replica and have two cars to enjoy. This is a hell of a package, and a car with a two page option list.

I have been looking for a 70 Boss 302, bright yellow with the shaker hood, slats, magnum 500 rims, and spoilers for 20 years and just can't find one that is a car I would feel good about driving without paying a boatload of money. When I got out of the Army in April 72, that was the first car I bought after coming back from southeast asia myself. I was actually going to go with either the Boss or a 70 road runner with a 440. It so happened a Navy guy in Orlando at the time who bought the Boss new had received orders and was heading out and couldn't take the car, so he advertised it for sale in the local paper. I had my dad take me to the address and as soon as we turned the corner onto the street where the car was in the driveway, I told my dad I would be driving it home. It wasn't long and I was on a first name basis with all the local police, trust me. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, but you know what they say about your first love. I have owned a Mustang of some sort ever since. In fact, I have a 2015 Mustang GT Premium with the 50th Anniversary package in Ruby Red as I type this. But, I would cut it loose in a hurry for that Boss. Not that I am looking to trade, as I'm not. I would sell it outright as I would need the space for the Boss. I'm down to 3 cars and that is enough for me and the wife. If you are interested in making sure your baby gets a good home, pm me and lets talk a bit. Be advised that right now I'm dealing with Hurricane Irma, so it may be a couple days before I get back to you, especially if we lose power here. Thanks for your patience.

So here is the deal. I sold this about a year and a half ago to a dealer on the east coast about 3 hours from where I lived then. Things happen and life changes so here I am now moved to the west coast. So AlexM posts an ad for this car showing up and I look at it and say "that was my car." It followed me from the east coast to the west coast. Maybe it was telling me something. Anyway, I bought it and we are back together again.
