1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302

To many enthusiasts, the Sports Car Club of America's hotly contested original Trans-Am racing series reached its pinnacle during the early 1970s as virtually every American automobile manufacturer vied for supremacy both on the track and on the showroom floor. This 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 competition car is a particularly attractive example with a well-known and interesting history.
The subject of a January 2011 feature in the inaugural edition of Auto Enthusiast magazine, this original 1970 Mustang Boss 302 is powered by a proper G-Code engine and finished and detailed as a Bud Moore tribute car. Originally finished in Grabber Blue, the Boss was purchased new by Joan M. Ericsson of Waterbury, Connecticut, who retained the Boss until December 1974, when it was acquired by Paul J. Pettey, whose racing career included Trans-Am and entries at Sebring and the 24 Hours of Daytona over the 20 years spanning 1968 and 1988. Mr. Pettey modified the car for racing as a back up to his #45 1969 Mustang, but it was never used as such by him.
Following Mr. Pettey's untimely accidental death during the 1990s, the Boss was acquired from the estate and in 2005, it was sent to Trans-Am specialists Conover Racing and Restorations and converted into a close replica of the fabled original Bud Moore Engineering Boss Mustangs. Completed in 2008, the Boss is now accompanied at with the original build sheet, receipts, track notebooks, and the VRA logbook.
This is a real Trans Am race car, however due to no previous participation in an original Trans Am race, this car cannot run with the select "Historic Trans Am Group" at limited events such as the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, under the present rules. Since 2008 this car has participated in many other vintage race events across the country in the Trans Am Group 6 Class. This car has recently undergone a full nut and bolt/race prep at Arrow Lane Racing and is turn key ready for vintage racing.
