I built this one back in the early 80s. Fitted for a B2, but needed a daily driver, so put a 302w into it. Sold the B2 engine to a guy in NB & he put it in a Mustang. I found the guy that now owns that engine. He will not sell it.

Ford made Boss 302 Pintos? Or you mean that picture you posted a link to with the car with the stripe? The dealer or Ford made what you posted?

No.. Ford never made a 302 pinto but they did make a 'boss pinto' - the only one I know that still exists is Mike's...

He knows much more about the pedigree of his car ... He has all the paperwork.

What would be cool is a boss look alike w/ a 302 ...

Nothing can replace a good Boss Cleveland engine, they made far too few of them. It would've been nice to see them last long enough to refine the rough edges more than they did. The Chevys should've gotten more of a stomping by them than they did.

I know we sure did it. I can still call up vividly one day at the Yello' Belly dragstrip with me and my friend Gary's Boss 302 running against a pretty full tilt 302 Z-28 with the rare 2X4 crossram on it. We were running a Weiand tunnelram with 2X4 750 DPs. What a race! Beat that sucker........ ..we DROVE the Mustang out, the Zee was trailered in, that had everyone laughing their sides off. A lot of cash changed hands on that one, we had to be very careful to not make any enemies.

I remember once a beautiful young girl who oddly enough worked in the back of a printshop when I first started learning press. She could've been a movie star, that type of package. Everybody was always trying to hook that, she drove a rare '71 Boss 351 'Stang that once talking to her about she wanted me to work on the clutch, the linkage was messed up. I worked on it and during that time became enamored of how well the engine ran. She never blasted it out but the day I gave car back I was putting it through the paces and actually almost abusing it but the clutch stayed put and worked fine after that. Boy the burnouts were movie quality as well, I felt like Steve McQ on the 'Bullitt' set. She commented on how the car never got driven like that by her and I told her she needed to at least once in a while. 'Treat it like your ex-boyfriend' I think I may have said. Everybody at work was sure I had done other things as well but not me, I was too shy. Besides that I liked the car better. Women were always something of a problem for me back then.

They are becoming more rare, the Boss 429 - forget about it!

A 302 would be cool though, or even a 289 :)

I remember seeing a pro stock Boss 429 Maverick close up in the pits at Little River dragstrip in Temple Texas around '72? or so, and just sat there trying to comprehend just how they managed to put more engine in there than there was space for. The words HOW???? just kept going around in a stuck loop there.

I had a Maverick until recently, I could see getting a big block in there :) It was almost the Mustang II base also!

72? You be older too! LOL

my "first" car (not counting all the projects BEFORE I got my license) was a pro streeted 74 maverick with a 302 in it. Guy built it and then got divorced so it went CHEAP.
 that was a fun car
