Here is some history that was given upon purchasing the car:
This 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 competition car has a well-known 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 302ci engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission and is finished and detailed as a Bud Moore tribute car. Originally finished in Grabber Blue, the Boss was acquired by Paul J. Pettey in December 1974. Pettey"s 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 backup to his #45 1969 Mustang,but it was never used officially used at an event 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 with the original Build Sheet, receipts, this is a real Trans Am race car, Since 2008 this car has participated in many other vintage race events across the country in the Trans Am Group 6 Class.
