Hi. I am a proud owner of a Grabber Lime Boss. This is a Mustang I have wanted all of my life and it feels good to finally have one. The cool thing about this car is the previous owner installed a Gear Vendor overdrive, so with the push of a button it drops revs and makes for a more relaxed drive.

the gear vendors really makes it an all around ride. though mine over the years has not been able to get out of the stand still kind of ride, next year will be the make or break out of that class however convertibles w/out roll bars just not the same for the competition class. welcome from Latrobe, pa

Here is one from the local car show. It has the poly-glass tires and wheel covers but i am thinking of swapping out for Magnum 500 and radials which I also have.

Hello from Mississippi. What a sharp looking Boss! Grabber lime with the black accents sure "Fits" that car. Welcome to your new Mustang home.

Grabber Lime was Ford's best color idea in 1971. Looks great on your Boss 351. Beautiful Pony it is! Welcome to you and the Boss!

I really think your car is beautiful. Welcome to the site.

 

After many years I also installed a GV and it makes a world of difference. I don't normally 'split' first gear but often split second. Mess around with it and have fun!

will e, the guy I bought it from always used the clutch when he engaged the GV. However, on the site it looks like that is not necessary. How do you use yours?

Welcome, nice car. I would leave the sport hub caps, rare to see on these cars... I have them on my 429cj convertible and will keep them on when I complete the restoration. I was lucky enough to find an NOS set in the Ford boxes a few weeks back... Cheers.

Wow, those are nice. Mine are in good shape but they don't look like that.

 

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome.
