hi folks,

many of you know my restoration(s). my boss isn't really done yet, but i'll keep you guys updated on the progress.
here's a link to my websites of the previous restorations i did.
http://v8austria.bplaced.net/index.html

having a boss as it is, is special but owning one outside of the US is kinda special. my 351B was exported to switzerland and is one of a dozen that went out in 1971. i was very fortunate to get this beauty and the best thing was that the car was complete and not abused in the past. the swiss cars were always premium quality and back in the days the US cars were better in quality than the european ones....so it was obvious that the wealthier swiss bought american cars.

Great car men!!... Not only the uniqueness of a boss... but his power and good name... Besides... overseas! woow!!!
I´m sure the friends here are going to be very participative in your marti as the car deserves! Wink

Question... My Marti Report (that you can see posted here) says, as yours "export decal" in the option list... I thought it meant the drivers door decal has a different text than all the other regular mustang decal... You can see that even in my Marti, the reproduction of the decal in the right upper side of the paper has a different text...

I see yours with the regurar text "this vehicle conforms to all applicable.... shown above" and mine says "this vehicle manufactured for export only on date shown above"

So... If what Marti says my decal should say, what does EXPORT DECAL means??

I´m gonna go to my Marti publication and ask this in the propper place but as both our cars are export cars, we can help each other too Wink

Again.. GREAT CAR!!!

Uruguay, you'd make a great investigative reporter! Big Grin I enjoy the historical perspective that you guys overseas bring! I guess I should think about getting my Marti...

thanks for all the positive feedback. restoring a car like this overseas is a challenge. i mean just getting the parts right and finding a reasonable price is hard enough as it is. and now getting the parts for a boss.....almost impossible.

according to my research all dsos 90-99 were meant for export. all of the swiss cars were sent out from newark NJ. find enclosed the eminger invoice and mrs eminger explanation of the invoice. this might explain a few things.

best regards
abudi
