1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351
Coupe Car for sale by Hendrick Performance in Charlotte, North Carolina 28262
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.
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
The 1971 Boss 351 Mustang was the last of the true muscle cars of the era. It replaced both the Boss 302 and Boss 429 from the previous two years as the performance Mustang in 1971. Packing a high-output version of the 351 cubic-inch Cleveland V-8 under its broad, tapered hood, the Ford Mustang Boss 351 represents one of the Blue Oval’s most potent performance cars. Just 1,806 were built in 1971, their lone year of production, and they remain among the hottest performers in the world of small-block Fords. The Boss “R-Code” 351 Cleveland engine stocked 330 horsepower and featured a four-bolt man block, large port cylinder heads and valves, a solid lifter camshaft, an 11.7:1 compression ratio and aluminum valve covers. Also standard on the Boss 351 was Ram Air induction, 3.91:1 rear axle with Traction-Lok, competition suspension, bullet-proof top-loader four-speed manual transmission, power front disc brakes, front spoiler, lower body side paint treatment and Boss 351 decals. This magnificent example has been fully restored back to original standards with no detail overlooked and is finished in Bright Red paint with black stripes. The Mustang has many desirable features including power steering, gauge package, rear spoiler, high-back bucket seats, center console and Magnum 500 chrome wheels. Delivered originally in Monticello, WI, this Mustang is documented with a Deluxe Marti Report indicating the sports car is 1 of 33 ever built with these paint/trim codes. Boss 351s’ are very collectible today and remain an exceptionally rare find so don’t miss your chance to own this superb blue-chip muscle car!
