Of all the legendary names in the history of the Ford Mustang, one stands apart: BOSS. Originally created to homologate the new Boss 302 engine and option package for SCCA Trans-Am racing, the Mustang Boss 302 debuted for the 1969 model year and was built in limited numbers for the street through 1970. Designed by the legendary Larry Shinoda, the Boss cars were easily distinguished from their less potent stablemates by their race-bred powerplant, standard front spoiler, and bold graphics. In 2012, Ford at long last revived this most revered of all Mustang models. With a new racing counterpart and a modern street version that delivers more than 440 horsepower, the Boss was truly back! In Mustang Boss 302, to mark this historic occasion, Mustang historian Donald Farr offers a complete history of the car--from its late 1960s origins in Ford's boardrooms through its Trans-Am successes and untimely demise in 1970, up to the conception and development of the spectacular new 2012 and 2013 Mustang Boss 302. Packed with brilliant photography and firsthand accounts from the people who created the original Boss, as well as the team that resurrected Ford's most iconic Mustang, this is the story every Mustang enthusiast has been waiting to read.

The book is highly detailed without being boring. It begins with the history of the design and release of the '69 Boss 302, the Trans-Am races it was featured and by what drivers and continues into 1970. Talks about the failures and the successes. How the other cars on the track faired against the Mustang Boss 302, etc. It leads nicely into the very early thoughts of bringing the Boss 302 back and what initially prevented it, what happened over the years that made it a possibility, and finally brought the car into the Future.
I can't imagine how someone would spend so much time researching the Boss 302, but thank God Donald Farr did. Wonderfully written and very well illustrated with some of the most detailed info and pictures that I have ever seen. Great Read!
Excellent stuff here! Anyone interested in Mustangs, the Boss 302 in particular, or Trans-Am racing will love this book. Very insightful about what it took to win the championship and how serious Ford was about the performance character of the Boss 302. As an example the rear fender side scoops were deleted because they were non-functional and gimmicky. THIS is how you build a legacy!
