It's "One of a Kind" all right, and not for the better. Pretty much a tragedy assuming the VIN is correct.

Were 302 Bosses all made at the same plant? He is the VIN plate from the yellow one advertised:



vs one from Hotrod Mag:



Not sure why the "G" is not complete or why the "8"s don't match if they are from the same plant.

Ok, so the VIN tags show they were made at different locations. I do not know enough about Bosses to know if that is correct.

Per Wikipedia, they were all Assembled in Dearborn, Michigan (1969–1970)

If it was a Boss they messed up replacing the engine

"The car is on a 1957 Chevy full frame. Has a 350 Chevy motor and 350 chevy turbo transmission ( automatic). Ford 9 in rear end. The car runs but need to be finished. Has a fuel cell for gas tank. Firebird tail lights.".


NOBODY does the above to a Boss 302 mustang.

ouch. I looked at the photos in somewhat random order; saw the obvious bow-tie engine and figured - sheesh another idiot ruined a Mustang; then clicked to the fourth photo with the Camaro lights


(ooops -Firebird lights -wth do I know?)

How did I miss the headlights? Anyway, the dash has been replaced and the VIN tag re-riveted to the new dash. If Wikipedia is correct I'm guessing the supposed "G" is not really a G at all. With so many modifications even if it were a Boss, its not worth much anymore.

1969 doors and door panels, 1970 body unless it is a 69 Boss body, and wrong VIN. Something funky about the rear valance as well. Shifter looks to be a manual but its an auto as it only has 2 pedals under the steering wheel.

Ok, I can't look at it anymore...

Bosses were built at Dearborn and Metuchen, not San Jose.

The super rare 1 of 1 Boss 350 built at San Jose in late 69 - early 70. One piece at a time.......

I read about these on the internet, so it must be true.

Wow...I think i just threw up a little.

I know jack about Boss mustangs but I'd be pretty skeptical that this is one and if it was...shame on them.

I would assume the Boss mustangs had a functional scoop while this one looks to be a stick on. I'm an advocate for modifying these old cars (if they arent special...like k-codes, boss, etc) but this thing is just awful...
