The Pony Car Wars Continue
We are back with this week’s installment of AutoGuide’s newest, interactive weekly feature ‘Commute, Toy or Destroy’.
A special one-off Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca will be auctioned for charity for the benefit of the Henry Ford Health Systems. Painted in a gorgeous, attention grabbing coat of “School Bus Yellow,” this Boss will also sport the personal signature of famous racing driver and Indy 500 winner, Parnelli Jones.
Standard Laguna Seca hardware applies in this special one-off, complete with a 5.0 V8 good for 444-hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. Redline reaches a staggering 7500. Bembro brakes, quad exhaust, Recaro seats, and an array of gauges including a G-meter are included in the package as well.
The auction will be held on October 15th, at the Ford Motor Company Conference And Event Center located in Dearborn, Michigan.
Ford Racing is now offering a 302 5.0L V8 crate engine from the truly awesome B0ss 302 Mustang. The fully-built crate engine comes with 11.0:1 compression ratio forged aluminum pistons, a lightweight aluminum cylinder block, a large sump 8.5-qt oil pan, revised composite intake system with shorter runners, 80-mm single bore drive-by-wire throttle body, ported cylinder heads with sodium-filled exhaust valves and sinter-forged connecting rods. The complete longblock is good for 444-hp.
Some wiring must be done as the vehicle harness and PCM is not included. A manual transmission engine harness and flywheel are included however. The engine weighs in at 444-lbs and options include Ford’s blue coil pack covers and NVH insulator pads. Those interested in the crate engine, the part # is M-6007-M50B.
Pricing is steep at $11,999 – a $5,000 premium over a regular 5.0L V8 crate motor.
