Here is another example. I inspected this car in LA. Its pretty nice but needs work. It started out in the high 40's. Its got some good options

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Ford-Mustang-Boss-302-/311954217008?hash=item48a1eb9830:g:mEsAAOSwGn5Zr0B2&vxp=mtr


Another example? it does not have a boss engine. 

This is why the "Market" thing is a waste of time. You have no idea what is being compared, no two cars are the same.

my last reply......attached is the Yellow Boss' original for sale picture indicating Numbers matching. I went thru the car and found a lot that was missing, with that said its a really nice car, low rust, oringinal quarters, right front fender not rolled, great options and yes its not a Boss "block' but does have heads and other stuff.  So,  aside from reading everything that's put on the ebay teleprompter, I did my homework, yes I am the one that pointed out several shortcomings and my point of the comment was that at even the current price its not a bad buy when you consider shells going for $ 20K

If your topic is the "market" then it would stand to reason the we would be talking about a boss car with a boss engine. Cleveland heads on drilled 2 bolt block does not make a boss 302.

Alex,
I think what Joe was referring to is that the 'car' is a legit G code Boss 302. Yes, its missing some key components, like you mentioned--the Boss 302 engine. That said, IT can be fixed with finding a 'real' Boss 302 engine. As for the market value, I have no clue. Again, my worthless two cents...
Current lifelong project:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 6 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase headed, intake mounted with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!

I'm a bit curious how it could be numbers matching if it doesn't have a b2 block? Isn't that a big qualifier for numbers matching?

Exactly, just a junk key phrase thrown about like "frame off".

Go to the cars for sale section and read the 3rd topic down, for $49,000 you'd be hard pressed to find a nicer car IMHO.

He actually finally just sold it over the past few days! Seeing a great driver go at such a good price makes me worry that if i wait a few years, i might miss out on getting a comparable deal.

How long will we be able to purchase a good driver for 49-60k?

If you want one, and have the amount you want to spend, buy now and start enjoying it.
I bought my car four years ago, and I don't think prices have moved a whole lot in that time.
Know what you want, and get expert help (from this Forum) to assess any car you're looking at buying.
There are good cars at decent prices out there.
Cheers,
Bob.

Bob NZnoboss - you are spot on.
Exactly how I felt 15 years ago and never once did I regret that decision.

cheers-

I certainly don't regret buying my 1970 BOSS 302 7 years ago, but wonder if prices on these cars have somewhat flattened out as it may be difficult for some to find a mechanic to work on your car for those who don't like spending hours getting dirty in the garage!

I was at Auburn over labor day weekend on Saturday. Watched two Boss Mustangs get auctioned. This red shaker car was nice but some minor details not right and more obvious like the rear valance panel. sold for $60,000 and I would put it at a higher end driver car. http://www.auctionsamerica.com/events/feature-lots.cfm?Order=price&feature=&collection=&grouping=&category=&SaleCode=AF17&ID=r0039#

This was very nice restoration being a color change from green to orange is the only reson I can think of that would of held back the price some. But, very nicely done restoration. Bid $71,000 and didn't meet reserve. http://www.auctionsamerica.com/events/feature-lots.cfm?Order=price&feature=&collection=&grouping=&category=&SaleCode=AF17&ID=r0620

The 68 - 70 Shelby's couldn't make it pass $80,000. One 67 Shelby sold for $154,000

I mainly wanted to see the two Cougars sell. This 71 conv brought good money at $20,000 but they didn't let it go for that :-P http://www.auctionsamerica.com/events/feature-lots.cfm?Order=price&feature=&collection=&grouping=&category=&SaleCode=AF17&ID=r0249

The 70 conv with a rare factory ram air on a 351c (although missing in action) stopped at $24,000 Must have sold it after the auction at $26,500 http://www.auctionsamerica.com/events/feature-lots.cfm?Order=price&feature=&collection=&grouping=&category=&SaleCode=AF17&ID=r0122

So, for those of us who are looking to finally get our driver quality BOSS, buy now or wait a few years?

Let's take a minute to think about what waiting gets you. If you have the available cash to buy a good driver and know that's what you want to buy, why are you waiting? The prices are not likely to completely tank, however in the event they do be willing to accept the loss. If the prices are stable or rise then cool for you. If you wait and the prices are stable then what did you gain? If you wait and the prices rise your priced down a level to a less desirable car or priced out. There are no Crystal Balls...... You just have to know what you want and what you are willing to risk. Until then you can still walk through car shows and think......hmmm, I'd love to have that car.

Figure out what you need.
