I believe that 0F02G194431 was previously owned by a Registry member:

0F02G194431 was for sale before I bought my 1970 BOSS 302 and I really thought it was a excellent buy for the price.  Unfortunately, it was too far away for me to consider, even though I ended up having to have the car I bought shipped by 18-wheeler 1600 miles.

I would be surprised if it makes it to $60K in today's market. Not the best time of the year to sell, and not the best market. Good luck with the sale and I hope you do well. Very nice car.

BOSS 302's are like a fabulous WI cheddar. Both get better with age and you buy them for your enjoyment, not as an investment.

Good looking car, always liked that color and W code Detroit Locker too. Not a bad combo.
Hey Steve, weren't you always looking for a nice W car?? :) :)

I watched the videos of the owner driving the BOSS 302 and he seemed to not have any difficulty with the manual steering.  Something to be said about keeping a BOSS 302 in original condition as one of my neighbors said that they could hear when I start my car and they live about a block away!

This is the first time I have ever seen the words "Detroit Locker Differential" literally spelled out on an Eminger invoice or Marti report! For example, my Medium Blue Metallic W-Code Eminger invoice only said "Traction-Lok Differential" and "Optional Axle Ratio" yet it had a Detroit Locker in it when I bought it in 1978. I gather now that means that my W code 4.30 came factory equipped with only a Traction-Lok, and that the Locker was added later?

Prior to seeing it on this invoice, I always assumed that a W-Code 4.30 meant Detroit Locker equipped!

My BOSS 302 was built at the Dearborn Plant on February 26, 1970 and the Ford invoice and Marti report shows that it had a Traction-Lok 4.30 rear end, but the build sheet and axle tag show that it had a Detroit Locker.  I believe that the W-Codes that were equipped with a Detroit Locker had the option show up on the Ford Invoice later in the model year, probably starting in April 1970.  0T02G161918 was built on June 8, 1970 and the Marti Report shows that it had a Detroit Locker:

Okay, that’s very interesting about your February Dearborn car - Thanks! That the BAT invoice and your Marti example are both June cars seem to bear out your belief. The specifics on the Eminger invoice that I mention in my previous post are for a car that I don’t own anymore, but a copy of that invoice that I still have is date stamped March 18, 1970. That also fits in with the dates of your theory. Hopefully others here will chime in with more substantiation for further proof.

This accidental discovery has really been enlightening for me!

Wow - that is an excellent previous thread with a lot of information on this interesting phenomenon of early W-Code production.

Thanks for sharing!
