Came across this one. Looks real nice. To be auctioned on Friday, April 13th.

Does it belong to one of our members?

Bet it won't cover the buyers premium, that is one very nice Boss, collectors with large bank accounts will be fighting each other over it...might set a record for a 71 Boss, the timing is right.

While the car is definitely nice - it appears to me that it is over-restored.

Boss 351's did not have a "Caution Fan" sticker on the fan shroud and the valve covers did not come with
anything other than the Emission decal.
These small details are what help the value. It shows the owners/restorers have done some homework...

The car is nice for sure but I'm wondering what work was done to the body?
If you look at the side view picture of the right side the bottom of the right door is completely out of alignment to the rocker & right fender..When you get into big numbers stuff like that does make a difference !

Good point Q, but how many of these Mustangs came from the factory in perfect alignment. The trunk alignment on my 73 convertible was always off as I noticed it at the dealership at the time when my girlfriend bought the car brand new. I still notice trunk misalignment in many photo's of what appear to be original cars.

I've also noticed over the years that the 71/73's with the exterior Decor option usually have misaligned moldings between the front fender and doors, as did mine.

Anyway, this could have been a factory issue, but who knows. The listing does not say it was restored, but 95% original body panels.

Anyway, I agree with you if it was restored, they should have fixed the alignment.

It'll be interesting to see what it brings but it's a feature vehicle at the right auction and the 71 Boss is currently a very sought after collector's car, the 71-73 fever is catching out there. Hard to tell just how cherry it is from the photos but it apprently has the pedigree that a high roller would want to pay out the big bucks.
