Ford Mustang 1970- Boss 302 images

The Boss 302 Mustang (Hi-Po)  engine is manufactured by taking the Ford Windsor (assembly plant) block from the  289 then adding the 351 Cleveland head with its larger valves to create the 302. This is an engine that will be  formidable competition for the Chevy small blocks and any other competition in the SCCA Trans-Am series. The resulting 302 (5.0 L) engine is the maximum size allowed that will fit the homogenization guidelines of the Trans-Am series.  The Boss 302 also has improved aerodynamics and superior handling with the intent of eclipsing the Camaro, not only on the race tracks, but on the street as well.

Thanks to Gateway Classic Cars for these great images.

    The Boss 302’s did eclipse the Camaros on the street, as well as the track. I’ve owned mine since 1970 now and I’ve used and bent every rule the NHRA would let me to go as fast as possible and still be able to run in “B” Stock. In adding to your comments about the Boss 302 being a “formidable” engine, these vehicles dominated the SCCA – Trans Am series, starting with Parnelli Jones. They have a special sound, killer 1st gear and a classic that looks fast, even when they’re parked. Great article guys!
