Ford Mustang Boss 302

So what can be said about the Ford Mustang Boss 302 that hasn’t already been said a hundred times on a hundred different websites? That is the question that every writer faces online. You see the Ford Mustang Boss 302 has a special place in my heart. I happen to consider it the coolest car ever built by  man!

The Ford Mustang Boss 302 is the standard that all muscle cars are judged upon. The Boss 302 raises the bar higher and higher, making it the goal to beat if you even want to consider being a contender in the beefed up hotrod market.

1969 -1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302

The year was 1969, the location was the Ford Motor Company, the person was Larry Shinoda. Larry Shinoda is responsible for designing the Boss 302.

Larry Shinoda gave us the reflective “c-stripes” found running down the body of the Boss 302. Racing stripes have been used on many makes and models of vehicles to give them a sporty look. Larry also gave us the famous black shades seen on the rear windows of the Boss 302. Also it was Larry Shinoda that had called it the “Boss” as an homage to the new President of Ford Semon “Bunkie” Knudson who had brought Shinoda over from GM when Knudson had left. When Parnelli Jones won the 1970 Trans-Am title, the name “Boss” was kept. I hope you enjoy my page about the Ford Mustang Boss 302.

In the heat of the recession, Ford had no choice but to make a bold move. That bold decision resulted in plans to resurrect the Boss 302 for the 2012 model year! Mustang lovers get ready, the beast is fixing to be turned loose once again! Maybe by 2012 I will be able to afford one of those ’85 gas saver Stang’s we all loved so much!
