1970 Mustang Boss 302 With 30k Miles Goes To Auction With No Reserve

The Ford Mustang is without a doubt one of the most iconic muscle cars of all time. In fact, we’d argue that it’s the most iconic muscle car ever. But within the pony car family, there are several extremely special models that will always win over collectors and command high prices at auction. This 1970 Mustang Boss 302 that’s set to be featured in the March 2021 Barrett-Jackson auction event in Scottsdale, Arizona is one such vehicle, for many reasons, not just because it’s being offered at no reserve.

There is a lot to like about this sterling example of a Mustang Boss 302. For starters, it is an extremely low mileage vehicle, with the listing stating it has only traveled about 30,000 actual miles since leaving the Ford Dearborn Assembly plant on November 21st, 1969. But in its younger years, the second owner took it to the track and apparently blew the engine, meaning that this vintage muscle car wasn’t a babied grocery-getter. However, a subsequent owner had the powertrain professionally rebuilt, which makes the matching-numbers 302 V8 and four-speed manual an appealing supplement to an already desirable car.

There are several other factors that make this 1970 Mustang Boss 302 a worthy catch for someone looking to snag one. The extremely seductive Calypso Coral paint pairs well with the Vermilion Red interior, and both are all-original and in fantastic shape. Only 78 Boss 302 models were configured with that color combination, making it something of a rarity, as it is highly unlikely that, after 52 years since being produced, the other 77 are in comparable condition, if on the road at all.

In terms of options, the car is pretty well equipped, making it even more of a hot item. It features Magnum 500 wheels, rear window sport slats, a rear spoiler, and a Shaker hood scoop.

When this Mustang Boss 302 hits the auction block at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale event between March 20th and March 27th, 2021, it will be offered at no reserve. The current owner is likely anticipating a bidding war to ensue, which wouldn’t be surprising, given its condition. Either way, this is an excellent pony, no matter what price it fetches.
