LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 302 Resto-Mod
Ford’s performance machine, the Boss 302, was a direct competitor to Chevrolet’s Camaro Z/28, as it offered more performance on a reduced-weight chassis. It proved its worth on the track, winning the SCCA’s 1970 Trans-Am racing series, and it was quite popular in the showroom as it offered customers a vehicle that was just as comfortable on the road as it was on the track. For 1970, the Boss 302 was fitted with hockey-stick side stripes, and the base model 1970 grille that replaced outer headlights with horizontal vents. Along with the exterior modifications came changes to the chassis and suspension including standard disc front brakes, heavier sway bars, spindles, and shock towers. The solid-lifter 302 cubic inch engine was rated at 290 horsepower and backed by the standard Four Speed transmission which was the perfect package to compete in SCCA Trans-Am racing.
