1970 Boss 302

This Boss was purchased in 1989 while it was in storage. The man that owned the Boss at the time was planning to build a Boss 302 race car, but things did not go right for him and he decided to sell it.   The new owner originally intended to restore to it “Driver’s” condition, but because of the unbelievable condition of the car, he decided to restore it to Concourse Show condition.  The more he took the car apart for restoration the more he realized how nice a Boss it was. AND AS THEY SAY…”Let the fun begin!!!!!!!!”.

After nine months of fanatical work and research and a great deal of help from friends, the new owner was off to hit the MCA circuit around the United States with his Concourse Trailered Boss 302.

Here are the results of his hard work and dedication:

1990 MCA NATIONAL GOLD CONCOURSE TRAILERED

1991 MCA NATIONAL GOLD CONCOURSE TRAILERED

1992 MCA SENIOR DIVISION GOLD

If you are not familiar with these MCA NATIONAL SHOWS, it takes a GREAT DEAL of effort to participate. You have to trailer your car thousands of miles all across the country to compete with other very serious people who are also transporting their car across country.  When this man was taking his car across the country he traveled to New Mexico, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma. Quite a few of these states he traveled to numerous times. Normally this involves missing some work time, so when I say this is VERY SERIOUS….. I am not kidding!

 NOW THE ULTIMATE COMPITION FOR MUSTANGS……..

 MCA THOROUGHBRED GOLD!!! The ultimate class in mustang competition in National Mustang Shows is the MCA Thoroughbred Competition. This class is for cars with NO reproduction parts. Almost all parts are NOS Parts that are date coded to fit the build date of the car or are original parts that have been made new again. The owner told me that it took him an unbelievable amount of time to find a NOS Auto-lite battery and NOS exhaust, sparkplug wires etc., etc. The car was then taken apart where needed and NOS date coded assembly line parts installed.

 After this was done it WON GOLD IN EVERY SHOW IN 1993, 1994 and 1995 winning the title of MCA GOLD THOROUGHBRED in ALL THREE YEARS!!!!!!!

 1993 MCA THOROUGHBRED GOLD

1994 MCA THOROUGHBRED GOLD

1995 MCA THOROUGHBRED GOLD

 It was retired at the National Mustang Show is Houston, Texas.  At that time this magnificent Boss 302 had won more MCA shows than any Boss in National Mustang Club history!!!!!!

 Also at the time this was the only Boss 302 that had been retired in the Pinultimate Class of Mustang Club of America Trailered Thoroughbred Gold!!!!!

One of the National Shows it went to was in New Mexico in 1993. This shows goal was not only to have a Boss reunion but also to determine the Best Boss in America.

At this show you had to present pictures and credentials for your Boss. If they thought you had a Boss worthy of this event, your car was invited. THIS BOSS WON THIS EVENT!

It was entered at Houston Auto-Rama four times. The results were:

1ST Time it placed 5TH   There was considerable controversy regarding this position

2ND Time it WON!

3RD Time it WON!

4TH Time it was asked by FORD MOTOR COMPANY to be on display REPRESENTING FORD!

 Other events include:

In the early 90’s it was entered in a national event put on by the National Muscle Car Association at the Houston Raceway Park which was covered by Muscle Car Review Magazine. To ensure impartial judging, the best paid judges were brought in from out if town locations to judge the almost 900 entries. This event had a very prestigious class called the Platinum Challenge. There were a total of three events like this held across the country with this class, so the competition was very strong. To be accepted for this Platinum Challenge you had to submit your car’s history and pictures far in advance of the event. There were only a few cars accepted into this very rare class. This Boss was accepted and it was the ONLY Boss 302 in the United States at the time ever to be accepted as a Platinum Challenge Car.

The owner and I have done our best to be as accurate as possible with all this information. With all the events, awards and all the magazines that this Boss has been a part of there maybe some items that are not correct and more than likely there are many more trophies and events and magazine articles that we have left out.   This is unintentional as we have done our best to be as an accurate as we can. I only have told you about the big shows that this car has won. The owner told me it won 100 other trophies in lesser significant shows.

After this there was really nothing else to win as it had won basically every national MCA event possible.   It had also won other large events not even mentioned. It won 2 years in a row at the Keels and Wheels event when it was an invitation only format. This event feature such notable cars as Ferrari’s,  Packards and Cadillac’s of the 30’s and 40’s,  famous racing cars plus many more notable cars.

It was then decided by the owner to take off such expensive items as the exhaust system, spark plug wires, coil, shocks ( replaced by Koni shocks), original Autolite Battery, Oil filter (that never had oil run through it) plus other NOS items that still had the boxes they came in

This decision was made because if the car was driven on the street it would of course ruin these items immediately. The parts that were used to replace these items were MOSTLY the parts that were used when he won MCA GOLD NATIONAL CHAMPION  2 years in a row and the MCA SENIOR DIVISION GOLD CHAMPIONSHIP.  The only class that you would need these parts were that taken off would be Thoroughbred MCA Gold.   Most people would not want to compete in this class because of the cost of the NOS parts, the amount of travel required and how competitive the class is.

The main items that I know of that on not on the car to be correct are the exhaust system, the one that is on it is a custom built very expensive system. Estimated cost is around $1000. You can buy a MCA Concourse approved exhaust system for not that much money if you wish to win show MCA shows. The distributor is an earlier dual point distributor and the carb is a smaller carb rather than the huge 780 carb that originally came with the car. Both of these items are on the car because the Boss actually runs better with these 2 items rather than the stock items that came with it originally.

 It also makes this car a very affordable price range for a Boss of its incredible pedigree. These Thoroughbred parts are available for sale separately from the cost of the car. I am told that some of these parts are not available any where else at any cost.

Do not hesitate on talking to me about this car as something of this quality and this pedigree does not come along very often.

DURING ONE OF THE SIGNIFICANT MCA SHOWS THE OWNER OF THIS CAR WAS ASKED TO DO AN INTERVIEW THAT WOULD BE SENT DIRECTLY TO ENGLAND FOR A SPECIAL CLASSIC CAR PROGRAM. IT WOULD BE SHOWN IN ENGLAND AND POSSIBLY EUROPE. OBVIOUSLY THIS WAS QUITE AN HONOR FOR HIM AND HIS BOSS TO BE PICKED OUT OF ALL THE FANTASTIC MUSTANGS THAT WAS AT THIS NATIONAL SHOW.  THE INTERVIEW LASTED 30 MINUTES.
