Nut and Bolt Restoration 1970 BOSS 302
#1
Guys, I couldn't resist asking a friend if I could post some pictures of his just finished Dearborn built  '70 Boss 302. So here are a few pictures I hope you will enjoy. This car was sold new  in Toronto and remained in the area since. This car is mint original condition, no rust!! It had been hit lightly on the front left corner, so the only panels not original are the front inner apron and front left fender. They at NOS though.
Every detail is amazing, all NOS wherever possible. The tires are as original and the rims are also as original 15X7" with NOS hub caps. The space saver spare tire is the original and never been on the road. Also the car was Radio Delete. He's done an amazing job which took 2 years and everything was done by him.
Enjoy.
Geoff.

Actually, he took off a set of Magnum 500's off because they were NOT original equipment on that car. The Magnums were aftermarket , so no he didn't want them.
Wouldn't mind buying them and putting 15" on my Mach 1 though!!

Yes the steel wheels look great, but they probably had the trim rings from the factory. It's a great look, after seeing Magnum 500's on so many cars. Mine came from the factory with Magnum 500's (originals are still on the car), but if I ever get a set of Coker original RWL tires I thought of going the steel wheel, trim ring, hub cap route. The Boss 302 is such a legendary car. I'd have to give a slight nod to the '69 because I prefer its face, but they are both incredible cars.

Thanks for sharing. Looks great.
Will defer to the more informed here, but growing up in the time all the 70 boss' I recall and the ads had trim rings with their dig dish caps. Just my $0.25.

Trim rings, center caps and 15 x 7” steel rims were standard fare on the 69/70 Boss 302 Mustangs. Magnums were standard on the 69-70 Boss 429’s and optional on the Boss 302’s only. Like our cars, so many 69-70 Mustangs are sporting Magnums I don’t think MCA deducts points for incorrect wheels anymore!
He may not be running trim rings cause he can’t find any or that are not insanely priced. Some “Midnight Supply” parts specialist’s removed two rims, trim rings and center caps from my Money Pitt #2 which is a factory F60 x 15” car. Did find a set of trim rings for $1,300.00! So mine will probably end up with Magnums also.

 Steve, I'll pass on your remarks to my friend. It would be interesting to find out if this car did or did not have the rings. He has the build sheets and Marti. Perhaps he just can't find any!!
Thanks to you all for your comments.

 Steve, I just talked to my friend and he does have the trim rings but just doesn't want them on. So you're right, they should have trim rings with center caps.
