Last night we posted a shot of the legendary Mustang Boss 302 in grabber blue. Just as we predicted, you all loved it. So now here we are dedicating a blog post like it deserves for single-handedly generating “wows” from all over the globe!
“I’m crying, it’s so beautiful”…
The 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is a high performance variant of the Ford Mustang originally produced in 1969, alongside its more powerful sibling the Boss 429 Mustang.
The first generation Boss 302 was a powerful and unique Ford small-block engine featuring a thin-wall, high nickel content block casting.
It all essentially started in 1967 a Camaro/Mustang where rivalry had emerged after the introduction of the Chevrolet Camaro, by General Motors.
The Camaro posed as the largest threat to Ford who held the lead in the Pony car market.
However, Ford fought back with vengeance by bringing out the Ford Mustang Boss 302, which amped up the Mustangs original appearance.
The Boss 302 Mustang was designed by Larry Shinoda, a former General Motors employee – go figure…
The design of this car we featured yesterday has a reflective “c-stripe” and is in the colour grabber blue!
Grabber Blue colour option could possibly one of the greatest things Ford had ever done, and it’s still available to this day.
We just love everything about this car, the make, model, colour. Can do no wrong!
