The legendary Ford Mustang Boss 302 - An icon in automotive history

The Ford Mustang Boss 302 is a classic American muscle car produced between 1969 and 1970 as part of the Mustang's second generation. This generation is characterized by an aggressive design and significant performance enhancements. Developed by Ford for competition in the Trans-Am racing series, the Boss 302 was designed by Kar-Kraft, a company known for developing high-performance vehicles. The heart of the Boss 302 was a 302-cubic-inch V8 engine, which had an impressive output of around 290 horsepower for its time. This car was not only a head-turner on the street but also a serious competitor on the race track.
