Boss 302 barn find. Sweden’s Thomas Rosenborg, whose automotive exploits have been documented on Junkyard Life previously (1971 Pontiac Trans Am, 1972 Pontiac Trans Am), shared evidence of more vintage, American, muscle cars in his homeland. This 1970 Boss 302 Mustang, equipped with a 4-speed, was recently found and purchased by a fellow, Swedish gearhead.

This Competition Yellow 1970 Boss 302 Mustang arrived in Sweden during the 1970s and had been in storage since the mid-1980s.
The Boss appears mostly complete. Rear window louvers, or Sport Slats, are still in place, but both, front and rear, bumpers are missing. Even without the optional Shaker Hood Scoop, this fastback Ford commands attention.
Designer Larry Shinoda’s flashy, reflective stripes, "Boss" name, and functional styling cues were the perfect compliment to the high-winding, 290-hp 302-V8 engine.
Great design never goes out of style. I hope this classic returns to the street soon.
