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 displayed at Ford on a rotisserie
to show off its unique quad exhaust. All is right with this car
including extensive documentation, a snappy interior, and of
course, the track key. With a mere 37,545 actual miles clocked on
her it's a very low mileage example and it's a 1 of 4 built with
Performance White exterior and Recaro seats. Overall number 29 of a
total of 44 pre production cars built.
Bathed in Performance White, all panels are laser straight, gaps
are well minded, and with contrasting black 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, the front chin spoiler, rocker covers, and
rear spoiler. The Mustang has retained its original design cues and
lines from the first version in 1964 1/2. The front end has become
more smoothed, but still menacing, the 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 snowflake styled wheels are on all 4
corners and use the blue oval FORD badge in the central hub. On the
rear roll, pan shades of an early version of what is now commonly
known as a splitter, for those so aerodynamically inclined!
Inside we have near perfect leather bolstered and suede insert high
backed Recaro bucket seats with an additional molded in headrest on
top. Boss 302 has been embroidered into these backs as well. 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! A similar design 2+2 rear seating
arrangement is stuffed in the back. For the dash also in black and
gray, with a smattering of brushed aluminum we see blue glowing
readouts for the instruments and push button controls. A simple
layout again harkening back to the original with dual rounded deep
inset 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 the back is an MT-82 6-speed manual
transmission, and for the rear axle a Ford 8.8 inch 3.73 Trac-Loc
gear setup. A shout out to this engine as it looks absolutely
showroom with highly detailed clean components, plastic coverings
and blue valve covers. Also don't forget the rear and side exhaust
system unique to this car and the reason it was on the rotisserie
to show it off.
Underneath ground effects plastic coverings abound and no surface
rust for the unibody, floor pans, rockers, and even wheel wells,
all clean here! Some very slight 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 a 3 link with panhard bar rear suspension. Power Brembo
front discs are on, and the rear also has power discs.
With the 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 mode on. Vroooooom !
Performance white 1 of 4 preproduction cars available with Recaro
leather and suede sets and in this color, now available for
consignment. Nicely preserved, low miles, and near perfect
exterior. A highly detailed engine bay, and blue display gauged
interior. Definitely an interesting ride with some throwback to its
original roots adding nice touches. Fully documented as to its
