  1. Sure you could......the longer you have it the more attached you become....have had a number of offers but have not received one I couldn't refuse....
  2. Thank you all for your kind posts......I did in fact purchase it having never seen one or driving one. Over the summer of 1970 I was sitting in the barracks at Fort Jackson S.C. having come home from Vietnam and a group of us were passing around magazines. The car magazine I was handed showed the prototypes of what the Boss 351 would look like if Ford built it. Then and there I had to have one. When I was discharged Christmas week of 1970 I went to every Ford dealership in my area and nobody had one in the showroom or on the lot so......on Christmas Eve as a present to myself for surviving I went to Sarat Ford in Agawam Ma and ordered one. It was the first time I had even seen a brochure on the vehicle so had to imagine what the color combination would look like. It is numbers matching and does in fact have 31,000 miles on it. Original interior and glass and even the original dealer tag and except for the tires and headers looks exactly as she did when she came off the truck.
