Footnotes


  • 'The Mustang can be tailored to be anything from a gentle in-town ladies' car to an impressive 130mph highway performer. Undoubtedly its almost infinitely variable personality is one of the car's chief attractions...' - William S Stone, 'The Ford Mustang'.
    Ford created a new class of car almost overnight with the introduction of the Mustang sports coupé part way through the 1964 season, catching the rest of the US auto industry off guard. Aimed at the affluent young, for whom a car was as much a lifestyle statement as means of transport, the Mustang succeeded brilliantly, achieving sales in excess of a quarter million by the end of '64. This remarkable debut was followed by a staggering 524,791 sales in 1965, earning Ford a fortune.
    The secret of the Mustang's success was a broad appeal that extended beyond the target market thanks to a great value-for-money package combining sporty looks, decent economy and brisk performance. Mustangs could be ordered in specifications ranging from six-cylinder 'economy' to V8-powered luxury, while customers could choose from an extensive range of factory options with the result that seldom are two Mustangs identical.
    A new, restyled and enlarged Mustang was Ford's big news for 1969. The '69 range boasted quad headlights for the first time on a Mustang, those these had gone when the 1970 line-up was announced. Also new that year was the 'Boss 302' engine option, a 5.0-litre V8 producing 290bhp.
    A correct Boss 302, not a fake, this example comes with Marti Report revealing that chassis number '0F02G148369' was delivered new to the Fred Jones Ford dealership in Oklahoma City, USA. The original colour scheme was yellow with Black Rhino/Corinthian interior trim, and the car came equipped with bucket seats, four-speed close-ratio manual gearbox and 3.5:1 ratio Traction-Lok limited-slip differential.
    The car was fully restored in 2010 while retaining many original panels, and comes with a complete photographic record of the rebuild, viewing of which is highly recommended. Finished in its factory livery of yellow with original black interior, the Boss is described as in generally excellent condition, very quick and sounding 'ace'. This well restored and highly collectible '70s Mustang is offered with current MoT and Swansea V5C document.
