I guess everyone hear has heard a story that is too good to be true, but here goes another:

I was parked in Kroger's parking lot last night, and this guy comes up to me, and starts asking me if I had a 68 mustang. I told him I had a 65, and he said it was the same thing (LOL!). Anyway, last Fall he bought a 70 Mach I (or that is what he said it was?) with a BOSS 302 for $150, it didn't run, but he "tinkered" with it, bought tires, and is driving it now, but he wants to sell it for $400. The body is gone, but the interior is still fairly nice, but i'm interested in the motor. Anyway to tell if it is really a Boss? He is going by the valve covers, and it was way too dark to look last night, but I got his phone #, and I want to know what to look for when I go back?

First thing I'd look for is screw-in freeze plugs. If none there,
end of story.

65 FB "J" 302 lots of mods. 94 GT K&N only.

hmmmmm lets see one sure way, is to crawl under the car and look near the pan rail for the engine casting number. It should be DOZE or D1ZE for a 70 block and C8SE for the 69 block. if it has cleveland heads (bolts in the valve covers) AND an intake that is connected to the radiator via a hose (unlike a Cleveland that has a "dry" intake), that is another indicator. while you are under the car, look for screw in freeze plugs rather than the pressed in stamped out plugs. better yet, take a camera over and take some pics - should be able to positively ID it that way here on the forum....
