In the Golden Era of Trans-Am Racing there were few names that resonated deeper than Parnelli Jones, and his iconic Grabber Orange pony car occupied the imaginations of obsessive youth nationwide for a period in the early 70’s. Though that legendary race car proudly sported a number 15 on the side badge, this 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 up for auction is a period correct example that pays homage to legendary racer, and the car that put him at the top spot.

Originally delivered to a small town dealership in southern Minnesota, this Boss 302 was well equipped from the get go with factory installed from and rear spoilers, a Shaker hood scoop, Sport Slat rear window shade, and the deluxe interior package. Since this car was spec’d in the shadow of the Bud Moore Engineering team racers, additional mods can been seen throughout to prep the Mustang for high performance mayhem, including bracing for the suspension with upgraded Koni shocks, a Detroit locker rear end, disc brakes all around, and flared fenders to accommodate the mag Minilite wheels cloaked in oversized BF Goodrich tread. As the name implies, the power is supplied by a Boss 302-cubic inch V8 mounted to a four speed manual transmission, ensuring any time you put the power on you won’t be disappointed.
