As the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang approaches, Ford Motor Company continues to release cool information and vintage photos of various Mustang models.  Today, we take a look at the 1969 Mustang Boss 302.

In early 1968, Ford named Semon E. "Bunkie" Knudsen its president.  Knudsen was a firm believer that high performance could sell more cars.  A designer named Larry Shinoda was hired and along with chief engineer Howard Freers, they were given the task of designing a special high performance model Mustang.  This Mustang would be inspired by the cars that won the first two Trans Am championships in 1966 and 1967.

The 1969 and 1970 Mustang Boss 302 models, of course, became very successful on the track winning the Trans Am championship in 1970.

Enjoy the pictures!
