Ford Mustang Boss 302
The third redesign of the Mustang appeared for the 1969 model year and the car grew again. Ford changed the engine choices as well as the equipment list, taking the Mustang lineup in two main directions. One direction was the luxury segment with the new Grande notchback model and other was pure muscle with three new models, the Mach I, Boss 429 and Boss 302.
Produced for only two years, 1969 and 1970, the Boss 302 featured a 302 V8 engine they conservatively rated at 290 HP. But, the real output was closer to the 350 HP mark. The Boss 302 was a model Ford intended for racing in the Trans-Am championship.
They equipped it with a blackout hood, a spoiler on the trunk and other details. Also, it featured a stiff, track-tuned suspension, close ratio gearbox and high revving engine. The car was light and without any unnecessary luxuries, which helped the performance.
