Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.

1982 Mustang GT

Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.


Classic Car Overview

1971 MUSTANG BOSS 351 for sale. Motorcar Classics is proud to present this 1971 Boss 351 Mustang Survivor which is from the Kirt Fryer collection with only 18,300 original miles.

It sports the original DOAE-L block and original top loader transmission and shifter. Just two of the four test cars are still known to exist and this car has the Ford Brass Tag to validate its history. Comes with build sheet. This particular test car is also a 1 of 1 vehicle based on the options car documented on the Marti report.This is an all original panel car that was repainted in its Wimbleton White color 18 years ago. In the 2016 restoration It was decided not to repaint the car in order to preserve the patina that the car already shows. All flat black paint was resprayed including underspray and all stripe kits were replaced. At RJR Restorations the engine was fully inspected and it was determined that the 18,300 mile odometer reading was correct and originalbased on visual wear. The rear end was inspected, lashed and all axle seals and races were restored The engine has its properly stamped DOAE-L block. Compression test was excellent.This Boss 351 Mustang has its original Autolite 4300D carburetor, hoses, radiator, distributor alternator, intake manifold and inner fenders.

Its unlikely that any screws which could conceivably make it go faster were left unturned, so they said.
