Sunday Morning Links: 1969 Boss 302 Mustang

Via Petrolicious:

Styled by design legend Larry Shinoda, the Boss was conceived to bring some heat to GM, whose new Camaro was the first true competitor for the Mustang, which offered performance that easily overshadowed what previous versions of the ‘Stang could muster. Incidentally, Shinoda was a former employee of GM, where he was responsible for the stunning ’63 Sting Ray. The story goes that the car was named “Boss” after he was asked by a co-worker what he was spending his time on; “The boss’s car,” he replied. Equipped with a new version of Ford’s 302-cubic-inch engine called simply “Boss 302”, it was a hybrid of existing Windsor block and Cleveland heads, each item named for the city in which it was built. Though modestly rated at 290 HP, it was enough for a then-competitive 6.7 seconds to 60 MPH and a 14 ½ second, ¼ mile time.

Very cool.
