Re: 302 Boss
Personally I'd go the 302 Boss. Is it complete with the inlet manifold??
I found this on the web:
One of Ford's most famous engines, the 302 Boss was a hybrid produced in '69-70 to compete in Trans-Am racing. They featured canted-valve heads (Cleveland style) solid lifter cams, stamped rockers with threaded, adjustable studs and guide plates, four-bolt mains, special rods, and forged pistons.
This is certainly one of Ford’s all-time super engines. The 302 BOSS (1969-70) proved to be very competitive in 5 liter TramsAm racing. It featured big breathing heads with "canted" valves, mechanical cam, stamped rocker arms with a threaded adjustable stud, push rod guide plates, forged crankshaft, 4-bolt main caps (#2, #3, and #4 journals), beefy con rod with spot-face for 3/8" bolt and forged pistons.
'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!
