Mustangs: The Ultimate Pony Car

I received my U.S.Navy discharge in December of 1969, started my first full time job as a mechanical engineer (30 year career) at the “West Bend Company” in February of 1970 and received my ordered 1970 BOSS 302 on March 25,1970. I love this old Mustang and rebuilt the engine myself for it’s 20th birthday. Its still strong after 40 years but gets less seat time since I received my 2011 GT/CS on July 9, 2010. This new Mustang is fantastic, faster and more comfortable than my 1970 with great miliage to boot. I call this my “New BOSS” as Ford is producing “world class” pony cars these days, and and I intend to drive both horses until they have to pry my fingers from the steering wheel.

Joy Dove Would someone please verify for me that there was a 1969 1/2 Mustang Boss 302. We took over payments from my brother when he went into the National Guard during Vietnam era. My son-in-law is a die-hard mustang owner and does not believe me that there was actually a "1969 1/2" model. That is exactly what it said on the title..... no kidding. This was the gorgeous redish/orange color with the black stripe on the hood and the black loovers on the back window. Big BOSS 302 written on the side at bottom of doors. Big 4 barrel, 4 speed and would haul butt. Please send me an email or, better yet... a picture of your Boss 302 to prove I know what I'm talking about. THANKS!!!! and happy mustang days !!

I am thrilled with whar ford is doing now and hope to drive them for years to come. bill
