Boss 351 article Hot Rod magazine July 2014

Too cool!


1971 Boss 351  
1972 Q code 4 speed convertible 
1971 Mustang Sportsroof  351-2V FMX 
1973 Mach 1 (parts car)
Very cool

He has all the vices I admire and none of the virtues I despise
Good reading
Thanks for posting the article. It is a great car and Dave is a good guy. Great to see him get national attention. Chuck
Where does yours fit on that ladder Chuck?

Just cruising along minding our own business when BAM!!! The LAWS show up.
That is a beautiful car, no doubt! Who among us would not love to care for that thing?

Two observations: The interior dash panels are all matching and the correct (and rare) camera-case finish WITHOUT "chrome" trim rings...the original standard interior pieces on a BOSS 351. This is so many times incorrect or mismatched on many "concours" cars. Good job!

However...I think I am the lone dissenter in my claim that Ford NEVER made a front spolier for these cars in argent...all were black on production vehicles. The argent spoilers "look" absolutely correct on argent-lower cars, but I have never seen an original argent front spoiler on a BOSS 351, only black...even on argent-lower cars.

If someone has some definitive proof otherwise, I would be anxious to see it.

I feel it is on par with Dave's car in accuracy (performance exceptions) and workmanship. Of course mine is a Mach 1 not a Boss 351. My car was awarded Concours Driven Gold at the 2012 MCA Grand Nationals. 690 points out of 700 possible. Great to hear from you Mark! PM or email me with an update on your car and you. Chuck
Excellent article. I am unsure about the argent front spoiler. My blue/argent Boss is missing the front spoiler. Sad
The poster has no reason to lie that I can tell.

I followed the trail...
