The Galpin BOSS 302 Mustang is tucked away in Ford's booth bathing in its own Grabber Blue glory. The car features the brand new BOSS 302 crate motor producing, from what we hear, a relatively modest 340 out of a potential 500 horsepower. Aside from that, we can only go on what we see since no information was accompanying the car. What extra info do you need? It's got the BOSS 302 graphics, louvers, a deep chin spoiler, wood-rimmed steering wheel and T-handle shifter. We have to seriously knock Galpin, though, for those GAS (Galpin Auto Sports) wheels that make the retro muscle car look too tunerific.

Just as the BOSS 302 crate motor is a precursor to the return of the BOSS production engine, the Galpin BOSS 302 paves the way for a production BOSS Mustang that's due in 2009. The production version of the BOSS engine, which will share virtually nothing with the crate motor besides its name, will first debut in the F-150 (remember the Hurricane engine? same thing) before showing up in a BOSS Mustang suitable for mass consumption. Until then, if you're jonesing for a BOSS Mustang you'll have to hit up Galpin.

      Biggest pile of pants on 4 wheels I have ever seen in my life.

      Nice interpretation of the Boss. Love the retro looking interior complete with Hurst T shifter. Wheels are fugly though.

      #11 Disagree with you the only reason we have a Mustang is because in the 80's when they were gonna turn the mustang in a Ford Probe. People wrote into Ford with threats and hate mail so much they kept the Mustang the way it was.

      #3 Hurst shifters are awesome. How can you not relate to a Boss 302 lord you know how much I would like to own one of those. I see them at car shows all the time.

      #4 The color is Grabber Blue but you probably like Neon Green.

      I love the louvers, and the color.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Ooops. I spoke too soon. Forgot to bag on the rear window louvers. I haven't seen those for about 15 years or so. And theres a reason for that....

      Nice looking retro, I have to agree the wheels are not right, but nice job. #3 You can still buy your Hondas, Mitsubishi's...

      I think you misquoted the color name. From the looks of it, it should be "crapper blue". So except for that and the ghettotastic wheels, it's pretty nice.

      • 8 Years Ago
      Don't know why you expected different wheels. Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) is the garage that is now affiliated with MTV's "Pimp My Ride."

      And I like the wheels. :p

      dammit ford FIX THE DAMMED INTERIOR!!!!! I'd buy one if it wasn't for that!
      • 8 Years Ago
      At least they thought ahead and made the seats resilient to drool. Even the paint is "cool".

      Yep, I am waiting in the wings with my $40,000 for this new Boss 302 to come out! I love the overall look of this car and it's homage to the original. Homage is different than retro...consider a current 20's something model doing herself up like Bo Derek in the movie "10". She'd be thouroughly modern with all the newest stuff (back tatoo, piercings) yet with Bo's hairstyle and swimsuit would be, like this car, a real fun ride! So enough from the "let yesterday go" crowd. If it's not for you, get a new Evolution X, Jaguar XF, or anything from Australia. Enough of a market for Mustangs exist that GM and Chrysler are bringing back the Camaro and Challenger...gods be praised! Maybe I can get my Boss 302 for MSRP instead of 10-15 thousand over sticker once it's competitors are on the market. Ford's biggest mistake is that they will only be making 1,000 Boss 302's. Instead they should take all the pre-orders they can get (like mine). I've already given up on the Shelby GT500 since prices are out the ceiling.

      I've been brought here via http://jenningsandersonford.com/blog/2007/03/mustang-madness.

      Nice color scheme. What's with the 2008 other than the Grabber Blue. How about Ford letting the fans vote on a new color scheme?
      • 8 Years Ago
      I absolutely love that car though I do agree the wheels are out of place. I would take this over any of the previously shown highly tuned 'stangs. Ford, if your reading this, bring back GRABBER BLUE for all mustangs! Its fantastic. (also, highland green for all those bullitt fanatics)
