Boss 302 Motors for Sale Remanufactured to Specs

The 1960s Mustang Needed Sales Help by 1969
The Mustang has no rival is a matter of fact, and it still is in the active mode today. Even though the 1964 Mustang was first on the muscle scene, the 289 and the 390 cubic inch Ford engines were no match for Chevy’s small and big block engines, especially when the Camaro was introduced in 1967. Ford did a little scrambling and introduced the Boss 302 Motors for Sale. Remanufactured to Specs by
Ford engineers.

Ford’s brightest task masters came up with a noble idea. They combined the tunnel port Windsor block from their Windsor Ontario plant with large Cleveland heads from their Cleveland plant and produced the Boss 302 V8 engine. Mustangs hit the assembly line with new power, and the car world found a new love interest.

The ironic part about this new engine was the fact that a former GM employee actually designed the Boss 302 Mustang; Ford added a little salt to GM’s Trans Am and Camaro sales wounds. The distinct styling, which included optional black horizontal window shades and blackout hood, was complimented by a rear deck wing and front spoiler. The 1970 Boss could hit 0 to 60 in 6.9 seconds. The 4-speed manual transmission and Boss 302 V8 with its free-breathing Cleveland heads that had valves larger than most engines made the Mustang a prized possession.

The Boss 302 V8 and the Mustang Cobra became so popular that it was immortalized by Matchbox and Hot Wheels. The 1969 and 1970 Boss 302 Mustang became a die cast reproduction model car.

Ford Reintroduced the 302 Engine For 2012
Ford revived the Boss 302 for the 2012 selling year by taking a standard 2011 Mustang GT, 5.0 litre V8 and adding an upgraded intake system. That change produced a 444 horsepower screaming beauty that was a full 32 horsepower stronger than the 2011 model. The new Boss 302 generates 380 ft-lbs of torque. It’s equipped with a 6-speed MT-82 manual transmission. The aero package is copied from the Boss 302R race car. The Mustang is still in it to win it even though the Camaro sold more cars than Mustang for the first time in history in 2010.

Gotengines.com/motors sells the Boss 302 motor as a fully remanufactured unit using better than new parts. For more information email or call us now.
