10k DT Flash: 1969 Mustang Boss 302 -Some Assy Required

Real 1969-1970 Mustang Boss 302s trade at Barrett-Jackson and other auction sites for close to six figures - so only the most horrible basket cases will ever grace the pages of the Daily Turismo.  However the Boss 302 is an icon and we are pleased to feature this 1969 Mustang Boss 302 for sale on ebay currently bidding at $9.500 no-reserve with 1 hour to go. (update - car sold for $10,201)

This is the real deal - an actual Boss 302 --there is a certain website that will remain nameless that this car could easily be offered for $25-30k as a 'barn-find!' and all sorts of wackos would call it a fantastic deal!  We think it is a rusted piece of junk and the price is a bit high.




The seller alludes to an engine/trans being installed before it was put in storage so there is a chance that this isn't the original 302 cubic inch (5.0 liter) 290 horsepower 7000 rpm solid lifter equipped screamer that was original equipment.

The interior looks like the set from a horror film and some idiot has put an auto trans into this barely street legal road racer.  A pox on the previous owner and all of his descendants!


This thing has Italian levels of rust but shares all of its sheet metal with the base mustang and all of those pieces, including the actual unibody, are available on the aftermarket from Dynacorn.  So what you are buying in this auction (if the engine isn't original) is basically a vin tag for a 1969 Boss 302.  Not a bad deal if it closes any where near the current bidding price.
