1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302
Ford got involved in Trans Am racing, road race circuit that was extremely popular in the late 60’s. In order to play, the manufacturers had to make street versions of the race cars that they sponsored in Trans Am racing. This is how it worked back in the day – you can go to the race during the weekend and go to your local (Ford) dealer after that to buy kind of a home version of the Trans Am race car for your own use. Don’t make this fool you, it’s not just the special stripe different in these street versions but also these are high-performance vehicles with special lower front suspension and many other different parts and modifications.
The engine is a big part of what makes the Ford Mustang Boss 302 so special. These series have the 302 cubic inch engine limit. This particular one has the same range but it is a little bit modified machine with a functional shaker scoop on top of the hood. This engine by the way creates 290 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque.
