    I am guessing color to be Gold. Similar to 2010 Sunset Metalic Gold.

    Yes I saw the mileage on dash and thought that might be a rare one. Enjoy, looks like a nice one.

    Awesome to see these photos. Thanks for sharing.

    Made me think back to my High School buddy's 1970 Merc Cougar coupe he had running a 351C - 2V. That was a running car for its time. Had an FMX tranny and 3.73 detroit locker in it. We always dreamed of making it a 4V setup but never got around to it. He later obtained a 1970 fully loaded Cougar XR7 convert that he restored. Rebuilt a 351 Boss 4V and dropped in it. Used the coupe as a donor and then sent the remains off to auto heaven.

    Back in the early '90s I ran a '70 Cougar with a stout 351C-4V, street and strip (mostly the latter). Had a single-plane Edelbrock with a Holley 3-barrel, nasty Ford Motorsport solid lifter cam, loose converter (C4), and 4.56s in the axle. Ran mid/high 11s. My brother ended up with the engine (still has it in his '70 Fairlane, slightly detuned) when I decided to bump to a big block in the late '90s. Then a buddy made me an offer I couldn't refuse on the rolling chassis and restomodded it, ended up a beautiful car. I should really get it back, it belongs sitting next to my '67 which I've had since 1986.

    Ah, the memories.

    351C is my all time favorite old school Ford engine.

    Based on the thread title I assumed this was going to be a Boss 302.

    Why do you call it a Boss Mustang?

    Think you are letting the ramblings confuse you, it is a 302.

    I think I got confused when I looked at the shifter and the engine picture. I guess I don't remember what a Boss 302 should look like. I wasn't sure it had the Cleveland style heads. I even thought that shifter with the T handle looked like a shifter for an automatic. The clutch pedal is so wide I initially thought it was a brake pedal, but now I see that there are 3 pedals.

    I also saw that there isn't a tacho as part of the gages in the dash, which really confused me.
