15k: BOSS 302 Clone: 1969 Ford Mustang

Yesterday we posted a 1986 Ford Mustang SVO as an alternative to buying a new Mustang.  I casually mentioned that you’d have enough money leftover after getting the SVO to purchase a classic fastback before you’d reach the MSRP of a 2015 EcoBoost Stang.  That isn’t necessarily the case with the early fastbacks (1965-1968) but if you are willing to go with the 1969-1970 restyle, you can certainly pick up a runner for about $15k.  Find this 1969 Ford Mustang here on eBay currently bidding for $13,544 with a few hours to go, located in Troy, MO.

This Mustang has been given a mild BOSS 302 look, which means it has the added C-stripe to make it look like the Larry Shinoda designed street fighter.  The builder did not add the flat black hood, rear wing and front air dam — but you could!

Power comes from what looks like a stock-ish Ford 302 cubic inch Windsor V8, which would have been good for 220 horsepower, but more power/torque is easily uncorked with a few bolt on parts. 

This car isn’t a restored trailer queen or concours perfect, but it could be a perfectly good driver with some work on the weekends.
