2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302
Pre-production cars are vehicles that allow the automaker to find
problems before a new model goes on sale to the public.
Pre-production cars come after prototypes, or development mules
which themselves are preceded by concept cars. Pre-production
vehicles are followed by production vehicles in the mass production
of them for distribution through car dealerships.
For consignment, a pre-production 2012 Boss 302 Mustang that has
the unique distinction of being the only pre-production car that
was produced in Kona Blue with black cloth interior. All is right
with this car including extensive documentation, a snappy interior,
and of course, the track key. With a mere 11,905 miles clocked on
her it's a very low mileage example and it's a one of one.
Bathed in Kona Blue, its claim to fame, all panels are laser
straight, gaps are well minded, and with contrasting white on the
roof, hood bump up area, and the essential hockey stick cove with
Boss 302 badging, all is right with this mass of muscle. Trimmings
present in black as window surrounds, front spoiler, rocker covers,
and rear spoiler. The Mustang has retained its original design cues
and lines from the first version in 1964-1/2. Front end has become
more smoothed, but still menacing, cove is there, and the rear
taillights are still in groups of 3's. Even the B pillar uses the
curved window for the rear passengers, this time in lieu of the
original venting that was on some of the first version fastbacks.
19-inch black powder coated wheels are on all 4 corners and use the
galloping horse badge in the central hub.
Inside we have near perfect broadcloth high backed bucket seats
with an additional headrest on top. With plenty of side bolstering
on the seat and back, it definitely helps keep you firmly planted
there when utilizing the track key, and I'm speaking from
experience! These buckets also sport Boss 302 embroidering on the
upper backs and are manually operated. A similar design 2 plus 2
rear seating arrangement is stuffed in back. For the dash also in
black and gray, we see blue glowing readouts for the instruments
and push button controls. A simple layout again harkening back to
the original with dual rounded large gauges and centrally located
panel with other smaller gauges. A leather covered steering wheel
is the perfect size for this car and sports some control buttons at
your fingertips. Dark gray carpet all clean, covers the floors, and
a tight dark gray headliner is above. Rock and roll!
A 5.0 liter V8 Coyote engine is stuffed into the engine bay under
the hood. It has a cold air induction system that feeds air to
electronic fuel injection. On back is an MT-82 6-speed manual
transmission, and for the rear axle a Ford 8.8-inch 3.73 gear
setup. A shout out to this engine as it looks absolutely showroom
with highly detailed clean components, plastic coverings and blue
Underneath ground effects plastic coverings abound and no surface
rust for the unibody, floorpans, rockers and even wheel wells, all
clean here! Some corrosion on the aluminum parts on the bottom end,
but certainly nothing of significance. Manual adjustable suspension
in independent Macpherson struts for the front, and 3 link with
Panhard bar rear suspension. Power Wilwood front discs are now on,
and the rear also has power discs. Rear and side exit exhausts
offer up plenty of breathing for the 5.0 liters of power to
With track key on hand she fired right up, and out was off to the
test track, which is why I used the track key! Here it has plenty
of acceleration, smooth quick ability to shift manually with the
short throw shifter, and quick panic stopping. It also provided a
nice low rumble cruise at highway speed. All functions were working
perfectly, and seating was very comfortable. Use caution with the
track key though because all the typical nannies are disabled so
you can easily have the rear trying to outrun the front with this
Kona Blue, 1 of 1 pre-production car available, now available for
sale. Nicely preserved, low miles, and near perfect exterior.
Highly detailed engine bay, and comfortable cloth interior.
Definitely an interesting ride with some throwback to its original
roots adding nice touches.
