New Boss 302 Book

New Boss 302 Book by Donald Farr.  In stock now!
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
Donald Farr's original Boss 302 book is a fantastic reference book.  Unfortunately, it went out of print years ago. We were very happy when we found out that he was updating the book and including the new Boss 302 information also.

We just received these new books yesterday.  I think it is just one of those "must have" books for any Mustang Library.  It is our part number LT-171.

Here is the description from the publisher:

Author: Donald Farr Foreward by: Parnelli Jones Format: Hardcover, 160 pages

Of the legendary names in the history of the Ford Mustang, one stands apart: BOSS. Originally created to homologate the new Boss 302 engine and option package for SCCA Trans-Am racing, the Mustang Boss 302 debuted for the 1969 model year and was built in limited numbers for the street through 1970. Designed by the legendary Larry Shinoda, the Boss cars were easily distinguished from their less potent stablemates by their race-bred powerplant, standard front spoiler, and bold graphics.

For the 2012 model year, Ford has at long last revived the most revered of all Mustang models: BOSS. With a new racing counterpart and a modern street version that delivers more than 440 horsepower, the Boss is truly back!

To mark this historic occasion, Mustang historian Donald Farr has written a complete history of the Boss 302, from its late 1960s origins in Ford's boardrooms, through its Trans-Am successes and untimely demise in 1970 up to the conception and development of the spectacular new 2012 Mustang Boss 302. Packed with brilliant photography and first-hand accounts from the people who created the original Boss as well as the team that resurrected FordÆs most iconic Mustang, this is the story every Mustang enthusiast has been waiting to read!
Donald Farr has been on staff at Mustang Monthly Magazine for 30 years. In addition to his magazine work, Donald authored Mustang Boss 302: FordÆs Trans-Am Ponycar and co-wrote How to Restore Your Mustang with Mustang Monthly founder Larry Dobbs. He currently owns the 1966 Mustang GT that his grandfather purchased new.

Rufus Parnell "Parnelli" Jones is an American racing legend.

A winner of three Indy 500s (one as a driver, two as a car owner), among his many other career highlights was winning the 1970 Trans-Am Championship in a Mustang Boss 302.
