1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351
Corralled in the Arizona heat for the first 20 years of its life this awesome pony is a strong example of just how good this generation of Boss can look. Unfortunately those two decades involved a lot of track brawling and by the time its second owner stepped up to the plate most of the car's Boss-exclusive components had been either swapped or modified. It took that owner three years of parts sourcing but after a solid restoration this Ford was back on the road. In 1998 the car was purchased b...y its third owner: Ken Maisano of MASCAR Auto Body - yes the same outfit that's been featured countless times on Overhaulin'. In addition to sourcing more correct parts Ken stripped the car bare and financed a detailed ground-up freshening. And naturally that rebuild included correct Grabber Blue pigment which in this application takes the form of high quality Spies Hecker 2-stage. Under the 'long and low' hood you'll find 351 cubic inches of Ford V8 that was balanced blueprinted and completely overhauled by Ken Maisano Racing Engines in March of 2007. That motor spins a rugged Toploader 4-speed that's been completely rebuilt by Orange County Transmission of Costa Mesa California. Holding that drivetrain off the ground is a correct Competition Suspension which makes excellent use of a thicker sway bar stiffer springs and staggered rear shocks. At the ends of that suspension factory power steering combines with power front disc and rear drum brakes to make easy work of turning and stopping. And power meets the pavement through chrome Magnum 500s which spin F60-15 Firestone Wide Oval 60s around galloping horse center caps. There's never a bad time to buy a classic muscle car that's in pristine condition - especially when that car is a Boss.
