Overview

Of the legendary names in the history of the Ford Mustang, one stands apart: BOSS. Originally created to homologate the new Boss 302 engine and option package for SCCA Trans-Am racing, the Mustang Boss 302 debuted for the 1969 model year and was built in limited numbers for the street through 1970. Designed by the legendary Larry Shinoda, the Boss cars were easily distinguished from their less potent stablemates by their race-bred powerplant, standard front spoiler, and bold graphics. For the 2012 model year, Ford has at long last revived the most revered of all Mustang models: BOSS. With a new racing counterpart and a modern street version that delivers more than 440 horsepower, the Boss is truly back! To mark this historic occasion, Mustang historian Donald Farr has written a complete history of the Boss 302, from its late 1960s origins in Ford’s boardrooms, through its Trans-Am successes and untimely demise in 1970 up to the conception and development of the spectacular new 2012 Mustang Boss 302. Packed with brilliant photography and first-hand accounts from the people who created the original Boss as well as the team that resurrected Ford’s most iconic Mustang, this is the story every Mustang enthusiast has been waiting to read!

Words blur like dotted white lines on a dark empty highway, and life is just cool as can be in the new book: Mustang Boss 302: From Racing Legend to Modern Muscle Car. This isn’t a book merely for Mustang enthusiasts; it is a given they have to own it. That is just one of the rules. For others, get it because this is a book that will re-energize your character. A reader regains that carefree whimsical do-it-all energy you used to hold so dear like the times before you became such a politically correct stiff." - Go2Geiger.com / Radioactive Drag Racing News
