From the day it was born, The 1964 1/2 Mustang grew to be an over night success! In 1969, Ford introduced for homologation to enter the Trans Am racing catagory, the 1969 Mustang Boss 302.

The name Boss was created by Ford automotive stylist Larry Shinoda to honor his boss of Ford Motor Company at that time , Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen.

The honorary title stuck, and the car soon became one of the most feared racing weapons in Ford’s arsenal next to the Shelby Cobra and GT40. Just in case your not a Mustang fan, the difference between 69 and 70 Mustang is that the 69 had four headlights and the 70 had two.

    Hi Paul, I forgot to mention it in the description. This car was campaigned by George Follmer. I know he and Parnelli were team mates at one time so I’ll bet this is the sister.
