2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 number 0001 - Click above for high-res image gallery

Second chances are like Lamborghinis; not everybody gets one. If you're still kicking yourself for not forking over the cash necessary to take home the very first 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 ever created, it's your lucky day. That very vehicle has shown up on eBay motors, and if you've got the means, you've got a second chance at calling this particular car your own. Why is the seller sending this piece of history on its way? Simple: the guy says he bought a Boss 302, not a museum piece.

He didn't know that his car was the very first production model until all of the appropriate lines were dotted. He says that he has neither the interest nor the space for some low-mile queen, and that instead, he wants a Boss 302 to use as his daily driver and a regular track rat. The bidding has risen to $65,100 as of the time of writing with reserve not met. Head over to eBay Motors to have a look-see. Thanks for the tip, Antonio!

*Update: The owner has officially sold the vehicle locally outside of the eBay auction. The last bid was $60,000 with the reserve not met.

      As noted in his description of the car, it has already been sold locally, and he is unable to end the auction.

      On May-04-11 at 05:44:44 PDT, seller added the following information: This car is NOW SOLD locally as I noted in the auction, thanks for bidding. I can't end the auciton, which I did not realize when I placed it as an auction rather than fixed listing. Please no more bids.

        A "snooze fest"? I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I read your post. That Z71 Silvy must really be something if you consider this a snooze mobile.

      I would have tracked it, daily drove it and beat on it like any Boss 302. Looking back at the 60's/70's Muscle cars..the ones worth the most have cool history and lived a brutal life before being restored back to pristine condition. The first one built in 1969 was probably bashed by magazines, later raced..then had its engine pulled for a straight 6 during the gas crunch and painted brown as found in a scrap heap in the 80's.

        I don't know about that....if i could turn around and sell it for about double what i paid then i would probably sell it too and then buy another one to take to the track and save the extra cash for tires and repairs or a Focus ST

        That's what he did. He wanted to daily drive it, take the kids to school, go grocery shopping. All he wanted was a boss 302, he now has another one that he will drive everyday and treat like the proper sports car that it is.

        I don't blame him for selling it. He will get a premium for it from a collector. He will be able to buy another Boss 302 and pocket the difference.

      The auction has been ended. He got $100K for the car! No joke 100K!!! For those who don't understand Mustangs, I can't explain it to you. I own 2012 Boss 302 #0002 actually and it is an exact twin to the 0001 car. I ordered it but did not know I would get 0002. I have offered my car for sale on EBay as well because I do believe a few of these need to be put away for generations down the road. The Gas powered Internal Combustion Engine will not be around forever and neither will muscle/pony cars like these! Anyway, my 0002 car is now on Ebay for sale to the highest bidder! I do not expect it will bring quite as much as the 0001 car but I did keep it factory assembly line original so it is new in the box in everyway. Another serious collector will get it! Long live the Mustang!

      Lucky, lucky guy! I agree with him on selling it. Thing's I've learned in my life is that it good to either sell it when it's super-new or really-old. If you plan on driving a car and don't have the room or the money, he's definately on the right here.

      I really had wanted a 302 for a track day car. I was willing to pay cash for one. The problem is I could not find a dealer within 250 miles that wanted less than $30,000 over MSRP. Ended up getting a Boxster Spyder. I paid MSRP, and barely less than I would've paid for a marked up 302. When I bought a Evolution VIII MR, I paid MSRP, for a car in the first shipment (which was paid in full for 7 months before delivery). Those were getting marked up to E46 M3 money back then, but I still paid MSRP by finding a dealer than understood long-term customer relationships. I tried 13 Ford dealers that were allocated a car. $30K over MSRP was the best they would do.

        And for those wondering why someone would cross-shop a 302 and the Boxster Spyder, the appeal of the 302 is it would rub a lot of people the wrong way to have their lap tmes continually trumped by a Mustang. That and the fantastic engine. A V8 that revs higher than my flat-6? Yes, please.

          @Sum Good to know that some people get it. Despite my chance at getting one being gone, what dealership in what location? No one in New England (or the parts of NYC I called around to) were willing to play ball for less than $70,000 ($73.6K ordered to spec).
