Acapulco Blue is a striking color on the Boss 302 and this color was only available on 1969 Boss 302s and not used on the 1970 Boss cars. The car came with standard disc brakes on the front, larger sway bars, heavier duty spindles, reinforced shock towers, a four speed transmission (all that was offered), and most importantly, the solid-lifter Boss 302 engine with its free-breathing Cleveland style heads, which had valves larger than most motors over a third larger in displacement. This G Code" Boss 302 engine was rated at 290 horsepower, but actual horsepower was more like 350 hp. Insurance companies began penalizing cars that were rated over 300 hp. The race versions made over 450 horsepower at over 8,000 RPMs. When Ford hired GM executive vice president Semon Bunkie" Knudson in 1968, he brought with him another big-name GM talent, stylist Larry Shinoda, who had been instrumental in the design of Chevrolet's Mako Shark concept car and the resulting Corvette Sting Ray. The first fruit of their collaboration at Ford was the 1969 Mustang, most notably the Boss 429 whose mission was to homologate the new 429/375 HP Semi Hemi" engine for NASCAR. Close on the heels of the Boss Nine" was the Boss 302, the purpose of which was to depose the Chevrolet Camaro (which, ironically, Shinoda had designed before leaving GM) from the SCCA Trans Am series throne it held in 1968 and 1969. The 1969 Boss 302 offered here from exemplifies the template by which the 1970 edition would secure the Trans Am title. The Boss 302 engine uses 10.5:1 compression, forged rotating assembly and high flow heads from the 351 Cleveland engine for a factory rating of 290 HP; the requisite Borg Warner 4-speed transmission and optional 3.91 Traction-Lok differential complete the Boss' potent drivetrain. Special Handling Suspension, power front disc brakes and wide rubber on Argent painted Magnum 500 wheels made the Boss, in the words of Car & Driver magazine, the best handling Ford to ever come out of Dearborn." Well cared for ever since, this exemplary Boss 302 comes is complete and ready for a new collection after its long tenure with the current owner!
