2020 Classic Showdown Madness
Every day for a month we featured a poll on our Facebook page matching up the top 32 viewed cars on fastlanecars.com. After 16,000+ votes were cast in over 30 match ups, you voted this 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 as the champion!
Ford produced the Boss 302 Mustang in 1969 and 1970 to meet the homologation requirements for racing in the SCCA Trans Am Series. The first year didn't go so well, the Ford program didn't run on the preferred tire and faced the factory Chevrolet Camaros run by Roger Penske and his lead driver Mark Donohue. In 1970, Ford switched to Goodyear tires, and Penske switched from Camaros to AMC Javelins. Ford driver Parnelli Jones won 5 of 11 races and George Follmer added another, enough for Ford to win the 1970 championship.
This 1970 Boss 302 has had the same owner for the last 19 years. It has a date code correct 302 cubic inch 4 barrel V8, which was recently rebuilt, and a 4 speed manual transmission. The exterior is finished in Bright Yellow and has the correct "hockey stick" stripes for 1970. Styling features include rear window louvers and 15” Magnum 500 wheels with Goodyear Eagle radial tires. Copies of the original sales invoice and an Elite Marti Report are included.
