1969 Boss 302, 1 of only 1628 1969 Boss 302s built and 1 of 1 as originally optioned per the Elite Marti Report. Comparing this with 1970 Boss 302 production of 7013 units, the 1969 Boss 302 over 4X more rare. The 1969 Boss 302 was available in only 4 colors, Acapulco Blue, Calypso Coral, Wimbledon White and Bright Yellow. This unit is one of 649 painted Bright Yellow. This late production example, one of the very last 1969 units built was optioned with the 15x7 Magnum 500 style wheels as opposed to the more common/standard Argent-painted 15x7 Magnum.
Showing 77,234 original miles and sporting an fresh rotisserie restoration in it's factory correct color, This Boss 302 is an excellent and well-documented example that can be driven, shown and enjoyed.
Body - The car received a show-quality repaint in its original Bright Yellow with Matte Black Boss 302 accents. The undercarriage is restored to factory-original specs with Red Oxide Primer, body-color overspray and correct seam sealant and sound deadener application. The car retains its original 1969 rear deck spoiler (a very rare piece as it was only available on 1969 Boss 302 from the factory). Any and all rust issues were addressed during the restoration, the paint quality, fit and finish would be graded at 9/10.
Much of the original heavy-duty suspension including the tie rods, HD sway bar and rear leaf springs are original and still show their original factory paint daubs. The rear "Staggered Shock" setup unique to high performance models including Boss 302, Boss 429 and 4-Speed 428 Cobra Jet cars is still intact.
Drivetrain - The high-revving Boss 302 power plant was completely refurbished during the 2016-2017 restoration. The block is a D1ZE service replacement unit. Correct Boss 302 internals, cylinder heads and Buddy Bar Aluminum intake are all present. Fuel is delivered via a correct, date coded Holley C9ZF-J 4150 unit. Factory Smog system and Rev Limiter are intact. The car is shifted by what is believed to be the original 4-Speed Toploader Transmission with tag code RUG-E3. The correct 9" rear end case is the heavy duty Nodular rear end "N" case and still sports it's original Ford Identification tag. It is also believed to be the original unit to the car.
Interior - The interior features original upholstery on the front and rear seats. A fresh headliner, Ford Tooling dash-pad and carpet were installed during the restoration. The car retains it's original and rare Stereosonic Tape System (8-Track). An aftermarket Hurst shifter was installed to replace the often underperforming stock Ford shifter.
Provenance - The car still wears it's original Ford build "BUCK" tag on the core-support. Original Door warranty plate is intact as well as correct dash VIN plate. Documentation includes an Elite Marti Report confirming this vehicle was 1 of 1 as optioned, Original Ford Quality Control sheet found during the restoration and original copy of the Sales Invoice.
