1970 Mustangs were considered the standard in the muscle car market. They were well made and carefully planned. So why were they also the lowest selling Mustang of the first generation? Simply because the market had grown too big. Mustang sales were cannibalized by an overabundance of muscle car models produced by nearly every car manufacturer in America. Though muscle cars, in general, were a huge hit, there was not enough overall demand for Ford to succeed in the 1970 market. While this meant poor sales for Ford through out 1970, this means a high market price today for these rare 1970 models. For example, in 1970 the Mustang Boss 429 was being offered to the general public for around $4000. Today that same car can go for upwards of $250,000. Yes, the 1970 Mustang is the most valuable first generation Mustang to date!

The 1970 Boss 302 had unique side stripes which started across the top of the hood. The headlights were moved to conform with the grille, and reduced to two rather than four. Functionally, the dual exhaust system was redesigned as well as the competition suspension and the 1970 302 now came with a Hurst shifter. The intake valves were smaller and the chrome was replaced with aluminum.

A little over 7,000 of these Boss 302 models were sold.

About the Artist:

James Knake is a professional illustrator/graphic designer with a B.F.A in Illustration from Ringling College of Art & Design. He has had a fascination with cars since he was a young boy. Always playing with car toys and building models. While in high school, he was hanging around with the guys who had Camaros, GTOs, Mustangs, anything fast with a big motor! James became obsessed with Muscle Cars from the 60’s and 70’s. After high school he purchased an old beat up 1967 Pontiac Firebird for $300 and proceeded to spend his time fixing it up and learning on the go. Bodywork, engine rebuilding, electrical systems, you name it. He sold that car years ago, but his love for classic muscle cars continues to this day. Now James has turned his attention to illustrating them. He decided to start painting some of his favorite cars from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
