8 Great Ford Mustang Boss 302 Colors
The Ford Mustang Boss 302 is one of those iconic muscle cars that you always find yourself gawking at when attending any classic car show. Many fawn over the classic muscle car proportions of the Boss, and just as many can rattle off plenty of specs about the 302’s iconic V8 powerplant, but do the colors of the Boss get enough love? In 1969 the Boss 302 was available in only four colors, but for the 1970 model year, that number expanded to 14. Not every color was a show-stopper, but with the help of Boss302.com, we were able to find all the colors, and how many of each existed.

This may appear to be the nearly default color for the Boss, and with good reason. It was one of the original four colors, and the most common color of each year. 649 of the 1628 Boss 302s built in 1969, and 1454 of the more than 7,000 cars built in 1970.
It is not the most exciting color of the bunch, but it takes a lot of sand to name one of the most American cars out there after the iconic British tennis venue. It is also the least common color from the 1969 model year.

Medium Lime Metallic
Some may argue that this is one of the uglier color available, but I was born after the 1970s, and since I didn’t have to live in a time when this color was a reality, I love the fantastic retro aesthetic of a color that looks like the bathroom fittings at my grandparents’ house.
Special Order Paint
Kind of open-ended, but in addition to opening up color options, it also allowed for the delete of the iconic Boss lines along the side of the car. That means you could have a Boss 302 as a complete sleeper car.
Dark Aqua Metallic
If I were going to built out a Boss 302, I’d do it in this very cool hue of blue. It also happens to be one of the rarest colors, with only nine originally ordered in this color.

First thing’s first—what a name for a color! We sometimes make fun of the names of colors available in cars today, but that’s often because they are affixed to something boring. This is perhaps one of the greatest examples of a color name perfectly fitting the color in reality.
Often mistaken for Bright Gold Metallic, Grabber Orange is just one of those awesome 1970s hues. With more than 800 selected in that color, it is one of the more common colors for 1970, so you might be able to get your hands on one.

The name says it all. The “grabber” in the name means it is one of those colors that instantly draws your eyes in. It is one of the most visibly pleasing colors offered for the 1970 model year. Oh, and alliteration FTW!
