A rare copy of the Ford Mustang was found in the warehouse where he spent 46 years. It is a model that many would not recognize.
The Boss 351 was only available during 1971 and found its place under the Boss 429. It is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine developing 330HP and 500Nm of torque, paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels.
The Boss differs from the standard Mustang in crankshaft, cylinder heads and a specially designed Autolite 4300-D carburetor. Forged aluminum pistons were installed, and the engine block got main bearing covers with four screws instead of the usual two.
Also, the model got more powerful brakes and modified suspension, and power steering was an option.
During 1971, only 1,806 copies of the Boss 351 model were produced, and a new one was bought in the photos. However, it has been parked since 1976.
The first owner ordered a car in red, but a yellow copy was delivered to him. He didn’t notice it because he was colorblind, but he found out the truth when his wife told him about the color of the car.
In order to reduce consumption, he tried to install two two-pipe instead of one four-pipe carburetor, but gave up on the project. The car has been parked ever since, and given its age, it is in good condition, but it needs thorough cleaning. He covered 46,175 miles. He is now on his way to a new owner, who will probably restore it and restore it to its full glory.
