Built on a genuine Boss 302 whose numbers confirm it’s an authentic Boss in the original colors. The all-original 80K-mile car was found in a dry Iowa storage garage with an incorrect engine years ago and bought purposely to do an extensive, top-quality, high-performance, professionally-built project. The previously-undamaged body was stripped and professionally refinished over absolutely straight panels to a show standard.
The interior was fitted with Cobra alcantara/leather & carbon fiber racing seats with 4-point racing belts, matching custom door panels, full Autometer Pro Series instruments are in the original dash pod and numerous Boyd Coddington billet features accent the heavy loop carpet over sound & heat-deadening insulation.
Engine is a DSS 408 stroker built on a 351W block with AFR aluminum big-valve heads, cammed up and with forged 10.5 compression pistons. Topped off with a recently-installed Fast programmable fuel injection system with remote digital controller. Now with a Tremec 5-speed close-ratio transmission and Ford 9” 3.91 Detroit locker diff. Ceramic-coated custom headers feed a 3” exhaust system and is cooled by an oversize heavy-duty aluminum radiator and many more mods & tricks, including an alloy fuel cell. The chassis features 11 and 12 inch Wilwood discs all around, Chris Alston coil-overs and nickel-plated suspension arms & Panhard links. Coddington 18” polished-rim wheels finish off the slightly lowered stance and the whole package is absolutely eye-opening.
Built for maximum open-road performance capability out here in the Wild West, but could be readily detuned for less-scary fun! As is always the case, the build cost more than twice the selling price and represents a fantastic value! You can spend $175K to build your own over a couple of years…or enjoy this one next weekend for no more than a stock Boss is worth!
