Boss 302 Mustangs; Both are Winners; as Seen at GoodGuys Nostalgia Nationals in Bowling Green 2008

Boss 302 Mustang

Say you love the Boss 302 Mustangs but can’t make up your mind if you like the 1969 or 1970 the best? Well, have we got a deal for you. How about both! Think you know the differences? Let’s take a look.

Boss 302 Mustang

This Feature Car is actually two Feature Cars. The first is a 1969 Calypso Coral with black interior owned by friends of ours, Mark and Rhonda Delk of Columbia, TN. Their treasure is a 71,000 mile classic that won Best of Show at the 2004 NMRA meet in Bowling Green and was picked as Mighty Mustang for the GoodGuys winners circle at the 2008 event in Bowling Green. In 2007 it was also one of GoodGuys top finalist for Muscle Car of the Year and has been featured on Muscle Car TV Flashback.

They have owned the car since August of 2004. Mark actually purchased the Boss from one of the guys he works with. (I know there is a joke in there somewhere about buying a Boss at work but I am not going there.) They had the car restored and it remains all stock with the exception of the upgraded BFG tires.

Our second Feature Car is owned by Keith and Robbi Ligon of Moulton, AL. It is a 1970 Boss 302 also painted Calypso Coral but this one has white interior. Although completely restored it shows 92,000 miles on the odometer. It runs on original style Goodyear Polyglass F60-15 White Letter tires. Keith and Robbi found the car in California five years ago and had it shipped to AL.

    These are wicked cars and the Coral paint is excellent. I’m restoring a 73 Mach I and if somebody knows what code Calypso Coral crosses to in Sikkens paint I would appreciate some help with a code number. Thanks, Buck

    Hello,

    Small detail, the last 2 pics are incorrect.
    the lowest is the 1969 mustang while it says it the 70 !
    The 70 has one tail light bezel while the 69 has 3 seporate lights.

    for the rest ! superb !
