As many of you can tell im am new here, I just wanted to share my new 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351. It has a rebuilt 351 Cobra-jet Cleveland 4 barrel with a Holly 600 4 barrel cab. The paint needs some work but I have a bit of time to work on this car. It also has an automatic Transmition, It appears to have a new bumper and new wheel covers. It need some rust repair on the floor boards and it needs a interior redo, The motor has less than 2,000 miles on it (as far as I know) Anyway I hope to get some good input on it all comments are welcome. thanks. (I will get more pictures soon)

Very nice ride.

 

On a side note though, and I am by no means an expert on blue 71's, but I think, in my humble and in no way meant to be confrontational opinion, the color combination of black spoiler on the blue car looks better if it were argent.

 

Here's what I mean.

WELCOME aboard!

 

As you have probably notice, we have ABSOLUTELY no problems with modified Mustangs. Do you know the year of the motor?

 

At any rate, I am sure we will be able to assist you as you continue your journey - - whether it is restoring your project to its an original Boss 351 specifications or continuing your modifications. Either way, you have a very nice car.

 

Again, Welcome!

Did not think about that but still is a nice car.

Here is a cool article on the 351 Boss

http://www.carcraft.com/featuredvehicles/ccrp_1009_1971_ford_mustang_boss_351/index.html

and with blacked out hood and chrome front bumper. The Boss also had matching front bucket seats. could still be the Boss though, so would like to see the vin numbers. We should all share vin numbers :) who knows, someone here may have the very first on the production line and not even know it ;)

Congrats on the acquisition. This wasn't the color combo my car in the attached photo was supposed to have, but its still the paint job I love on these cars so I can see why you bought yours. Nice car!

Welcome :)

 

Don' take this the wrong way but do you really own a Boss 351? A Mach1 with a 351C does not make it a Boss. As you should know Bosses also had the chrome front bumper and the hood was painted almost all argent. You hood looks like a Mach1, the bumper looks like a Mach1 and the only thing that says Boss is the decals on the fender. Provide the engine code in the VIN and we can help. To get you started in 1971 (the only year of the Boss 351 Mustang) there was a:

 

H - 351C 2bbl

Q - 351C 4 bbl CJ (available with 4 speed or automatic)

R - 351C 4 bbl BOSS (renamed the HO in 1972) 4 speed only

Vamach1 - 72 Sprint conv & 72 Mach1

Good afternoon guys over the weekend i got some work done on the car, We got the hood off and the car on blocks the trunk and the rear seat and the 1/8th in of bondo off of the rear quarter panel. We also got the door panels off and are working on getting the heater core out. The tail lights are out and I primed the rear panel and cleaned out the trunk for undercoat and a coat of black paint. Let me know what you think about my progress. Oh the power steering needs to be redone as well thats for a furher date. I also plan on a set of seats with a 5 point harness and the rear will be re-done. The floorboards are actually not as bad as we thought they would be. And now that the hood is off i can actually see the damage which is minimal. as the car comes apart the more of a story it tells. thanks for looking guys.

As I said I have only had the car for a while and the motor was a rebuild so there is no way of really telling. The whood was painted to look more attractive for sale so it's not reallythe original hood paint. The stickers are original so it may or may not be. I'll get the vin off the car and find out.

and I am not really set on selling it as its my first car so I want to build it the way I want and if i choose to sell it ill get what its worth. So it may or may not be but Its really not concerning me at this time

Right on! Nice progress. You could also have a 1 of 1 Super Mustang called the Bosach-1 Sorta like the Legendary T5 Ford made back in the days :whistling: Either way, Boss, Mach or Bosach..It's one solid looking car. Keep up the great work and post the vin!
