Recommended Posts

I was at the Mecum Auction in Indy today and saw this Boss 351. It is said to have been once owned by Bill Elliot of NASCAR fame. It will be auctioned on Friday. It is part of the Rick Baker Ford collection.

I have a decent collection of Bill Elliot stuff. I wonder if the wife would notice if I added the Boss to my collection. ;)

I saw that car (maybe in MM) in a Ford related magazine back in the 80's. Back then, I think it was owned by Bill's brother, Ernie or Dan??

It was not for sale at that time. I remember it had a "High Performance" Autolite battery.

Wow, so cool. Ray, don't mean to hijack the thread but I notice it has a full console. My Marti report shows my car has a console but it came with a short console.

Someone could have switched it out. I didn't want one because I knew my girlfriend wouldn't like it... :cool:

Ray,

 

That is exactly why I did not order the console on my 72 Mach 1 back in 72. I did not know about the folding rear seat at the time...probably a good thing I did not get that option either!

You are a lucky dude... Mr. R Code. I've always wanted to visit a mecum auction. Enjoy!!

 

This was my sixth time to go to the Mecum Indy. I also went to Mecum Kissimmee last January. There is always a good variety cars there. My wife was tempted by a 2002 T Bird with only 7600 miles on it.


I would like to see what it sells for.

I saw where in 2008 it sold for 87,500 at Barrett-Jackson.

I most likely wouldn't have my current wife if I would have had a console.

Nice Boss too.

 

hmm brings back memories of a 78 Bronco I drove and removed the back seat... And then there were the custom vans! :D

Another hijacker, I saw part of an SVO in the mag. posted. I think at Charlotte or Atlanta can't be sure in 1984 they had several SVO's at the 20th. ann celebration and they had NASCAR drivers that would take you on the track for high speed runs. They had so many people they ran all the cars out of gas. I think they gave Elliott one of them since he was one of the drivers. I bought one of the ann cars and still have.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Not sure of the condition of the car but 40K sounds like a bargain to me. I would like to have a Boss1 to go with my 429 car one day.
