Sound off if you have a Boss 351 or '72 R-code


Recommended Posts

The B1 is out of California and I am aware of 2 previous owners  but they both just turned the car. Don't know of any way to research previous owners in California.

You could get a Marti report and locate the original owner who might be able to continue the string. Regarding the restoration, if you have the Autolite 4300 D carburetor, then the other items will be much less problematic to obtain. There are members following these posts that may well have the items you mentioned.

I wish I had written down the VINs of the three R Codes I have seen here besides the ones my Dad owns. One was featured in Mustang Monthly in 80s or 90s, I think with the muscle at auction boom it left the state. The second I came across for sale in 97 for $3500 and I had a baby on the way and wasn’t able to buy it. The third is nothing but a shell in a hollow behind a local ford guys house engine and trans are gone.

Great! Glad to hear another awesome B1 has been unearthed and will be restored to its former glory!

Can you share the VIN and some pictures? Here’s mine.

1F02R146445 alive and well in Texas!

Interestingly the VIN of Mike429cj's B1 is one earlier than the VIN of my Boss (1F02R146446). How many miles does Jonnywrench's Boss indicate? When you say that it is all there, does it have the original Autolite 4300D carburetor, original distributor, space saver spare, rev limiter etc? Has the vehicle previously undergone an engine refurbishing/ Does it have the original camshaft? Ther is a lot to being "all there". Thank you for advising the forum of your vehicle.
