Crazy luck the last couple of weeks. Here is what I have found. All straight unrestored cars.
Red 1970 Boss 302
Yellow 1971 429 Mustang
Silver 1971 Boss 351 Mustang
Yellow 1971 351 Mach 1
Red 1963 Corvette convertible

Corvette is worst of the bunch. Spotted it when in New Mexico a week ago. Doors are in the car. Top is loose sitting on the hood.
Haven't tried to contact any of the owners. All have been sitting for 15 years+
I can't afford to buy all of them and I have 2 in different stages of restoration.
What would you do?

I can get picks of the Boss 302, 429
I have a pic of the Corvette but don't know how to post.

Go with the Boss 351. They are fewer in number. Of course I would take them all except for the bow tie.

I'll try to take a few pics of the Mach 1 and the Boss 302 tomorrow. We have the Nascar show at work so it will be busy for me.
I really want the Boss 351. I'm trying to get vin numbers to post on the Boss 351 registry.

I am curious about the Boss 351.
Many years ago I worked with a lady whose son-in-law owned a Boss 351. It was silver. They moved to Tucson in about 1990.
I don't even remember their names, but wonder if it's the same car. Even then it had sat for many years. He was the original owner and bought the car for his graduation. Said he'd never sell. But that was a long time ago.

I vote for the Boss 302 though.

The choice...

The Boss 302 for its value,and its look.Certainly not for its power..

The 71 429 for its uniqueness and its obvious value as a factory big block car

The Boss 351 because its the most underated of all the Boss cars and the fastest..

Hands down the Boss 351, the rarest and fastest of the breed.
