Tell us about your vehicle! About 12 years ago I wanted to build a pro-touring 64-67 GM-body convertible. After lots of trips looking at junk I found this car on EBAY. The guy that had it had bought it from the original owner’s widow at an estate sale. The original target red was badly faded but it was a 99% rust free survivor. I struck a deal and had it delivered from Pennsylvania to Texas.
Over the next 14 months I did a full frame off custom restoration build with a pro-touring theme but just polishing the original paint and cleaning up the interior. The car was built to handle and stop like a modern sport sedan and it does so very well. I sold the car a little over 10 years ago but last summer the owner called and needed some quick money and wanted to sell the car. My daughter was 3 and was always out in the garage as I was building it. She was not happy at all when I sold it and cried when the shipper loaded it up. Last Summer I surprised my then 13 yo daughter with flight to California and we spent the next two days driving it back to Texas. It was a time capsule of how I sold it. We put more miles that weekend then he did all the years he owned it.
Special Modifications: Bascially no special modifications other than a Shelby gauge pod in the center console and a fire extinguisher. One stock BOSS.
Upon retiring I needed something to keep me out of trouble. So, at age 65 I acquired this 1970 BOSS 302. It had been restored approximately 26 years and three owners prior to me, it was still in impeccable condition and ready to enjoy. That is what I have done, driving it to as many local and area cruises and shows as I can make. It always seems to draw a crowd and has earned numerous trophies and awards. As they are our car future, I make certain every youngster that comes along sits in the driver’s seat and has Mom and Dad take their photo. Always gets a BIG smile and a thumbs up..!! Per the Marti report this BOSS is a one of one.
Brand of Paint: PPG
Special Modifications: Small Block 383 stroker from Blueprint engines. Fuel injection conversion with Fitech setup. Transmission changed to a 700R4 with overdrive from Monster transmission and a Thor torque converter. All brakes converted to disc brakes. Ten bolt rear end changed out to a 12 bolt with Auburn locker and 3.55 rear gears. Mono leaf springs changed to multi-leaf. Doug’s headers with Flowmaster 40 series exhaust. All original sheet metal and glass.
This was actually my first car that I was forced to sell when I was 19 years old because I was getting into too much trouble. A year or so after selling it I missed it so bad that I started looking for it. Twenty years later I found it in rough shape in this little town called Martin Georgia. I’ve had it back for 3 years now and my life is once again complete. A very small percentage of people that go looking for lost love’s every find them. I was very lucky.
