Motorsports famous Trans-Am series inspired several performance models, Camaro's Z-28, 'Cuda's AAR and the mighty Mustang Boss 302. Beyond having the proper "G" engine code in the VIN, this Boss 302 has a well detailed history.
Originally built in Grabber Blue, it was purchased by Joan M. Ericsson from Waterbury, Connecticut. She owned this car until December 1974, when it was sold to noted Trans-Am participant, Paul J. Pettey. Teaming during his career with greats like Roy Holmquist and Lance Reventlow.
It remained in Pettey's collection until his passing in the 1990's when it was eventually obtained by our vendor. In 2005, the car was sent to Conover Racing and Restorations, specialist in these vehicles, where it was treated to a complete reconstruction to be a close replica of the cars campaigned by Bud Moore. In 2006, the car was test driven and more improvements were deemed necessary with that work completed in 2008. In the hands of a skilled test/race-car driver it proved to be a very sound racer.
Documentation includes the original build sheet in an extensive file of receipts in addition to track notebooks and VRA logbook. If the new owners choice is only for show, no disappointments, but if it is to go to the track, sure-footed and exhilarating performance are waiting at the turn of the key.
