VIDEO: History of the BOSS 302
Ford has officially released an all-new BOSS 302, reminiscent of the original 1969 BOSS 302, which only lasted until 1970. The new 2012 BOSS 302 will put out about 460-hp on the dyno, and cost about $35K.
The time has come. Friday the 13th will be unlucky no more. Ford will unleash on the streets the 2011 BOSS 302 this Friday, August 13, 2010. The BOSS 302 first appeared in 1969, and lasted only until 1970, to compete with the Chevy Camaro Z28. Parnelli Jones took the win in the BOSS 302 in 1970
The new 5.0-liter motor, dubbed “Coyote” is now available as a crate motor from FRPP, for just under $7000. 11:1 compression ratio and 412-hp (conservative) can be yours, with 390 lb/ft of torque to rip off your nads! All-new aluminum block ready for your dreams to be realized.
If you didn’t make it to the Mustang car show at Perry Farm in Bourbonnais, IL today, you missed out! It was an awesome display of some of the hottest Stangs from every generation. There were Shelbys, Saleens, Roushs, you name it. 2nd gen Mustang Cobras were in the house, even a ’67 GT500KR. It was incredible.
Stay tuned for coverage of the Perry Farm Ford and Mustang Show, which is of course TODAY, Sunday, August 1, 2010, at 459 N. Kennedy Drive in Bourbonnais, IL.
If you haven’t already seen one, the new 2011 Shelby G500’s are sporting a 120-lb lighter front-end due to an aluminum block and some other stuff, as well as switching to electronic power steering. They are also bearing narrower stripes from front to back, is that cool or what I can’t tell.
Highly anticipated and sought-after, the BOSS 302 is coming for everyone! Well, at least those lucky enough to acquire one next year. Arriving in early 2011 as a 2012 model, the Boss 302 is expected to produce at least 440-hp, and will be quite collectible for it’s first year reappearance.
