1971 BOSS 351 HISTORY

The 1971 Boss 351 was perhaps best known for its significant performance merit. Under the 351’s hood resided a 351 cubic-inch V8. However, this engine differed from that which was utilized by the Boss 302, as both its block and cylinder heads were of Cleveland make, as opposed to the 302’s use of a Windsor block.

The Boss 351’s R-code powerplant featured stroke measurements that were ½ inch greater than that of the 302. This bolstered the 351 cubic-inch V8’s compression ratio to 11.7:1. Additionally, the R-code engine was upgraded to the use of forged-aluminum pistons, and four-bolt mains.

Power was directed through manual four-speed transmission, equipped with a T-handle Hurst shifter. This transmission could be ordered in both close and wide ratios. A Traction-Lok 9-inch differential with 3.91:1 gears was responsible for directing output to the Boss 351’s rear wheels.

This powertrain arrangement produced 330 HP @ 5,800 TPM, and 380 lb-ft of torque @ 3,400 RPM. The Boss 351 achieved 0-60 MPH times of just 5.7 seconds and was capable of covering ¼ mile in under 15-seconds.

The Boss 351’s tenure was short-lived, as it would be dropped from production after the 1971 model year. Upon its retirement, Ford discontinued the Boss lineup in its entirety, as the company’s focus continually shifted away from race-related endeavours. Today, the Boss 351 is highly sought after, due to its relative scarcity, as only 1,806 such Mustangs were ever produced.
