The Mustang Boss 302 was initially released into the wild from 1969 to 1970 and again this year and 2013. First produced meant for SCCA Trans Am racing, it had been a cut above a regular Mustang with redesigned small block motor and its distinctive “ c-stripe. ” and 7, 013 sold. The particular 302 was briefly reintroduced within 2007 with a Parnelli Jones S302, but was limited two. Only five hundred vehicles. The second generation came among 2012–2013, with a Laguna Seca version with only 750 produced.
Comparing the old with the brand new is an apples and oranges scenario(or whatever fruit you want to pick), however it does give you a chance to show exactly how Ford has brought forward the Employer 302 and tried to integrate a few of the distinctive old features into a brand new design. Past that, if you’ re interested in one of these vehicles it’ s really down to your budget and when you want a new vintage pony/muscle vehicle.

This 302 example is figures matching & has had a complete recovery with OEM parts where required. The motor has been tweaked a little being bored. 030 with eleven: 1 pistons and an Isky cam. As the ad. says, the vehicle is ‘ pristine’ and includes full documentation. The original G program code engine had 290 hp having a 0 to 60 mph time of six. 9 seconds, quarter-mile in 14. six seconds. The 302 did perfectly in the 1970 Trans Am time of year, winning the championship in 1970.
This one has the optionally available rear black window shade plus true to original decals. The rear finish gears are now 3. 89: one, instead of the original 3. 91: one gears.
There are more costly and slightly cheaper 302’ s i9000 available at the moment, but this illustration strikes a happy medium designed for price and originality.
2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca
Engine: 5. 0L 4V HI-PO TI-VCT V8
Transmission: 6 speed MT-82 guide
Exterior Color: Dark
Mileage: 11, 703
Price: US $39, 991. 00
There’ s nothing like a pioneering, but a modern interpretation will a minimum of have the luxuries we are accustomed to nowadays and definitely won’ t break down just as much. The Laguna Seca is a new edition version of the Boss 302 plus houses Ford’ s 5. 0l V8 producing 444hp and 380 lb·ft of torque.
For this bit extra money you get Ricardo chairs in the front but lose the trunk seats, Torsen limited-slip rear gear, upgraded suspension and larger back stabilizer. Being a limited edition you could have an upcoming rarity on your hands, along with the 302 moniker to keep its value.
In case you’ re a Ford enthusiast both vehicles will simply be really worth the money, but even if you’ lso are after a pony/muscle car, which will provide you with plenty of fun and increasing value, the or the new could be a good expense.
