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. The Boss 351 Cleveland engine stocked 330 horsepower and featured a four-bolt main 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, 3.91:1 rear axle with Traction-Lok, Competition suspension, four-speed manual transmission, power front disc brakes, front spoiler, lower body side paint treatment and Boss 351 decals in place of the Mach 1 decals. The Boss 351 had much better low-end response than the previous Boss 302 and Boss 429 models, and its equal weight distribution made for better handling as well as better braking…

Boss 351: The Quickest Pony in the Stable

How could a 351ci V-8 of 1971 grab bragging rights over the likes of 428 Cobra Jets and Boss 429s of the ’68-’70 muscle car era? In the pantheon of early Ford Mustangs, muscle car cognoscenti place the ’71 Boss 351 at the pinnacle for e.t.’s through the quarter-mile.

Bob Perkins, the world’s foremost authority on Boss Mustangs and widely regarded as the best Mustang restorer anywhere, concurs. “I’d put my money on the Boss 351,” he says when asked of the top quarter-mile Mustang of the ’64½-’73 generation, provided those cars—Boss 429, 428 Cobra Jet, and Boss 351—were geared the same.

Then he tosses another muscle Mustang into the fray, a ’71 429 Super Cobra Jet with a set of optional 4.11 or 4.30 gears in its 9-inch differential. This frightening muscle machine, Perkins feels, would finish ahead of all other stock first-generation Mustangs, but second to the Boss 351.

Up for sale is a very rare Boss 351 Mustang. This car was previously owned by a doctor from North Carolina who was also a Mustang/Shelby collector. He and his son purchased this Boss 351 in the early 90’s.

The car was professionally restored (starting in 2011 and completed in 2013) in Lexington, S.C…. by one of the best Mustang restorer’s anywhere… Bob Brawn Southern Rods & Muscle, LLC.

The restoration was complete including full engine, transmission, and rear-end rebuild. The engine was sent to Eddie Vaughn Eddies Machine shop for complete & correct rebuild. The engine bay is correct including parts paint, markings, etc.

The restoration did include upgrades such as paint, suspension, wheels & tires, dash lights, and seats as follows: (the owner built the car to drive)

Paint is 2011 Mustang Alloy Silver (original color was white)

Wheels are American Racing VN427 Shelby Cobra Wheels with BF Goodrich g-force radials (front 255/45ZR17 and rear 275/40ZR17) … longer wheel studs added

4-Wheel Disc Brakes added

Polyurethane bushings added, longer sway bar links, traction bars added, larger front traction bar, 2-inch rear lowering blocks. (the car drives and handles very well)

Upgraded front adjustable seats (factory look)

Upper dash panel painted white with LED lights with sound deadener behind dash panel

Factory AM/8-track stereo radio still in dash but non working

The restoration was extensive with no expense spared and this rare R-code Boss 351 is one of the best running, driving, and handling cars that I have had and I have had a lot of muscle cars.
