With only 1,628 Boss 302 Mustangs built in 1969, these cars are highly collectable and valuable. This one was found in a garage, where it had been stored for the past 32 years. It’s in rough shape, but if you are willing to tackle this project, it can be found here on eBay.
The Boss Mustang came about in an attempt to give the Camaro a challenger for the Trans Am Championship. To make the Boss a true competitor in Trans Am, Ford took their 302 cui Windsor V8 and strapped Cleveland heads to it. Ford rated the combination at 290 hp, but realistic output was closer to 400 hp. Ford also upgraded the suspension and made some cosmetic changes to help improve performance.
Like the rest of the car, the interior needs attention. It appears all the original pieces are there, but have seen better days. Thankfully, the Boss came with the standard Mustang interior, so finding replacement parts shouldn’t be difficult. Looking at the body, we would guess that the floors are going to need replacing. Not only does it need lots of body work, but it also needs a correct engine and transmission.
As you can see this Boss is going to be a massive project, but if the Vin is correct it would be worth it. Missing the original engine could have a huge impact on the value. What do you think? Will the engine have a huge impact on the value or do you think the rust will have a bigger impact?
