LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351
For the 1971 model year, Ford introduced a drastically redesigned Mustang. To this day the design is scrutinized, but sales were still strong compared to the competitors. For that year and that year only, one model stood out and would be looked at as being one of the best balanced performance Mustangs ever built and the last of the series of impressive BOSS cars. Only 1,805 BOSS 351 Mustangs were built featuring a special version of the 351 Cleveland engine and 4 speed transmission. With 0-60 times being competitive with the previous generation 428CJ and the balanced handling of a BOSS 302, they were fantastic all around cars.
Built on December 10th, 1970 at the Ford Dearborn assembly plant, this BOSS 351 Mustang was delivered new to Friendly Ford in Fresno, California. It is still powered by the numbers matching BOSS 351 engine rated at 330hp backed by a 4 speed Top Loader wide ratio 4 speed transmission and “V” Code 3.91 gear Traction-Lok rear end. The long list of options begins with power steering, rim blow steering wheels, sport deck rear seat, am radio, console, décor group, tinted glass and Magnum 500 wheels. Being a factory BOSS, it also came equipped with the full set of instrumentation including factory tach.
Today the car continues to show well, having been tastefully restored, the Grabber Yellow shows well with all appropriate black striping and hood treatment on the functional NASA Ram Air. This rare Mustang also comes fully documented with Deluxe Marti Report that outlines how it left the factory. The BOSS 351’s were the last of the breed and in the eyes of many, also the best most well balance car of them all. This particular example offers a great opportunity to acquire a real BOSS Mustang with a numbers matching engine and one which can be both driven and enjoyed.
