I have for sale my 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca Pre-Production Car. I am open to offers, so please don't hesitate to come back at me with one. This was my dream car when I was growing up and when I read about this and the Bullitt coming out in Motor Trend back in 2008, or so I saved all of my pennies for it. When I was 24, I had the opportunity to buy the car of my dreams and it has been an amazing experience. Unfortunately, I am selling it in order put a down payment on a house. This Boss was given the Boss 302 Serial Number #MP0034 and was built on December 13, 2010 at the AAI Assembly Plant. This Boss was ordered by Ford Motor Company as a Product Planning & Styling Vehicle in September of 2010. There were a total of 13 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca MP cars produced and out of those 13, 9 were authorized for release by Ford, the other 4 were destroyed or sent to Miller Motorsports Park in Utah for the Ford Racing/Performance Track School. The Window sticker for this Boss mentions the person who ordered it as J. Collins and has the Sold To Address listed as Ford Motor Company as well as where it was shipped to. The certificate received in the Supplemental Boss 302 Owners Package from Ford says that:
“Ford Motor Company certifies that Vehicle Identification Number 1ZVBP8CU25199980 is a limited-edition, pre-production 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca produced at Auto Alliance International on 12/13/10”
According to the Marti Report, it was ordered on September 30, 2010, 1 month after the Boss 302 announcement as released to the world. Since then, the new Boss 302, a continuation of the historic and infamous 1969-1970 Boss 302 had received rave reviews from the Journalists and had been widely regarded as the best Mustang ever built at that time.
In 2014, with 19,000 miles on it, the motor had chewed up a rod bearing causing the motor to go so I figured out what I wanted to do and set up a new engine with the same Boss 302 DNA, only the way it should have come. The result is a 9,000 RPM capable 5.3L 609RWHP monster that as far as I am aware makes it the most powerful All Motor Coyote Car in the country! Using the drivetrain loss that the factory Boss 302 had, this would put the power output at around 682HP which is more than the Supercharged 2013 GT500 and more than 100HP more than a Lamborghini Huracan. I had no expenses spared when it came to putting this motor together. It has ARP hardware throughout, coated Diamond pistons, Manley rods, Darton sleeved block for extra strength and engine longevity, Trick Flow Springs, Comp Cams, Billet Steel Oil Pump and Crank Sprocket gears, Heavy Duty Timing Chains, King HP Main Bearings, Clevite Rod Bearings, etc. This engine is simply overbuilt for its need, but I wanted to make sure I had zero issues with it.
The motor came from Rich Groh at RGR Racing Engines and was built and assembled at JPC Racing in Millersville, MD. These two together have built numerous record-setting combos and vehicles and JPC Racing is known as the Coyote Headquarters with a multitude of cars racing under the JPC Banner. A vast majority of them are running 7's in the quarter mile and tearing up their classes in NMRA racing as well as having the first factory blocked Coyote engine in the 6's. Rich Groh himself is widely regarded as one of the top Mod Motor Engine builders in the country with multiple record-setting & class winning builds under his belt. The engine is brand new from oil pan to intake manifold with only the Engine cover, a few coolant crossover tubes and various non TTY bolts being reused. Everything else is new on this engine. I have a notebook that details the part number for everything that went on this car as well as with the cam cards, torque specs, etc. When going down the list of the top racers in some of NMRA's fastest classes, it's like reading a who's who of who has been in the JPC Racing Shop getting their cars built by Justin Burcham and crew. These guys are the real deal.
Please contact me for a full list of what was done to the car including a breakdown of the engine parts as the list will be long. I have attached links to a video of the car, the first time it went to JPC Racing for tuning as well as a video of the walkaround of it. Also listed in the advertisement is a picture of the dyno sheet in a follow-up visit after the motor was fully broken in:
Being sold with the car is the original engine block, the original red grill, the 2012 Boss 302 Car Cover which is almost impossible to find, the Boss 302 Track Key Voucher, The 2012 Boss 302 Book by Donald Farr which has become impossible to find, The 2012 Boss 302 promotional items that I have been able to collect, the supplemental Boss 302 Owners kit which includes (as per the ford show parts website):
original certificate in BOSS sleeve
production summary sheet
Mustang BOSS 302 book (v2.2013 included for both 2012 & '13 orders)
Ford Remakes A Legend DVD.

BOSS 302 key fob (not engraved)
In the side profile picture on the right wheel well you can see
a white mark, those are some scratches approx.. 1in. in length I
think it might be in the paint of the car. It was like that since I
have had the car and I can't get it to come out while detailing, so
I think they are scratches.
In the rear view picture of the car on the left rear tail light, if you look at the far end of the tail light and look straight down, you kind of see a grey area. It looks like I had an Angry Bird attacked the car and kicked it as there is a mark on the bumper the shape of a bird foot.
The car doesn't pass NYS emissions testing as it sits. Two of the Monitors won't turn on as is. I believe it has to do with the Long Tube headers, so a set of factory headers or shorty headers with the factory cats I believe will solve the trick.
The oil pressure gauge within the gauge pod pegs to 100psi. When I spoke with Ford Racing about this, they believe that this is a faulty oil pressure sensor since the gauge is reading and activating and is still getting signal, just the wrong signal. It has honestly never bothered me at all, and I have the one on the dash as well, so I never got around to trying to fix it or replace oil pressure sensor.
The paint does need to be compounded and polished again, but when it is as you can see in the pictures, the paint does look great. It's black, so you get the normal issues when it comes to black.
I can go on and on about the car, but if you have any questions about the car, please don't hesitate to ask. If you would like to come and see it, please let me know, and we can arrange something.
