In 1964, Ford's general manager Lee Iacocca,
envisioned a small sports car to replace the full sized muscle
cars of the era. Originally named after the P-51 Mustang fighter
plane, the Ford Mustang (pony car) was a success from the very
beginning. Five years later, noted automobile designer, the
late Larry Shinoda (Z28 Camaro, '63 Corvette Stingray, fame),
introduced the original Boss 302 and Boss 429 Mustangs. These
mustangs broke into the racing scene in 1969'-70' and were the car
to beat. Winning both NHRA drag racing events and SCCA Trans-Am
championships, the Boss Mustangs endeared themselves to both
racers and car enthusiasts alike.
The links below the photos that follow will take you to pages that shows
some representative Boss Mustangs covering the Classic Years.
If you have a Classic Boss Mustang that I am missing, or you have
