Ok so we have a 1971 Boss 351 being fully restored in our shop. Our shop manager is out today but should be back tomorrow so I will get more details as to what has been done besides what I know.

 

So here is the break down, this is a 1971 Grabber Green with White interior, this is 1 of 5 that were made in that color combination. As you can see from the pictures I am posting it's got new front and rear bumpers, chin spoiler, front grille, exterior door handles and a few other items. Like I said I will get a full break down of what is replaced on this car as well as what is planned. I will also try to keep the pictures up to date as new things happen.

Stopped by the shop today as I really needed to as my time has been very limited since the break is over for the holidays. So here are some new shots of the project. I will try to get over there more, but we have so much in store for 2011 my plate is literally overflowing lol.

Nice car. Cool color combo.

 

One question, doesn't the black go up onto the decklid on a Boss?

Steve: Thanks for sharing the love. You guys sure know how to do a 71 Boss right. Bout 10 years ago here in Florida I actually saw an original-1 owner Grabber Green Boss 351. Never forgot it. Keep us posted on the progress.

it left here to get the motor and tranny put in. I guess the customer had that built else where while we did everything else. It's suppose to come back to us when it's done so that we can finish up, when it does I will make sure to get some pictures.
