For 1970, the Boss 302 received new tape stripe treatment which began on the hood, came down the front fender and then across the sides of the rear of the car.  The standard wheel size was still 15 x 7, but a trim ring/hubcap arrangement was standard, instead of the Magnum 500s.  Chrome Magnum 500s were still an option, but only for the Boss 302, as was the shaker hood scoop.  

New for the Boss 302 was a redesigned dual exhaust system, Competition suspension, and the standard Hurst shifter.  Smaller intake valves could also be found, along with aluminum valve covers which replaced the chrome ones from the previous year.

A gloss black hood scoop outlined the '70 Boss 429, along with chrome Magnum 500s using a Boss 302 center cap.  Available colors were Grabber Blue, Grabber Orange, Grabber Green, Calypso Coral and Pastel Blue.  Only black or white was available as the interior color.  For 1970, 499 Boss 429s were produced, as the KK numbers ranged from KK2060 to KK2558.  

The consecutive unit number on the Boss 302 could be found on the engine block, and the Boss 429s had additional VIN numbers on the transmission, engine block and inner fenders.
