Packing a high-output version of the 351-cu.in. Cleveland V-8 under its broad, tapered hood, the Ford Mustang Boss 351 represents one of the Blue Oval's last true muscle cars. Just 1,806 were built in 1971, their lone year of production, and they remain among the hottest performers in the world of small-block Fords.

The Boss 351's, like we have here for sale at Classic Vintage Exchange, main claim to fame was its V-8, whose 330hp at 5,400 rpm and 370-lbs.ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm would outgun a number of big-blocks.

At first glance, the Boss 351 bears a resemblance to its stablemate, the Mach 1, but with "Boss 351 Mustang" decals on the front fenders and tail and a larger blacked-out area on the hood. The main way to determine whether the car you're looking at is a genuine, bona-fide Mustang is to look at the VIN: the fifth character should be an "R," designating the high-output Boss 351 engine. OURS HAS THE VIN #1FO2R170825!

The 351 is bolted up to a Hurst-shifted four-speed manual transmission, with a Traction-Lok 9-inch rear end equipped with 3.91 gears. All came with the beefed-up Competition Suspension package and power front disc brakes. Externally, they were marked by their twin, functional "NASA" hood ducts, Mach 1 honeycomb grille, lower body paint treatment, body side stripes and 351 decals.

One of the most recognizable features of the '71-'73 Mach 1s is the hood design with dual scoops. The basic hood came as a non-functional item, but when ordered with the Ram Air option, it became truly functional. The Ram Air option included a vacuum controlled door inside each scoop, and a fiberglass under-hood 'plenum' that directed cool, outside air through a modified, rubber-ringed air filter housing and into the carburetor. The ram-air option also included a pair of 1970 Mach1-style chrome twist hood locks and a two-tone hood paint treatment in either 'matte black' or 'argent' (matte silver), which coordinated with the decals and striping.

The Boss 351 was the premier performance Mustang for 1971, stickering at $4,124, or a premium of more than $1,000 above a base Mustang SportsRoof.

Motor Trend recorded a quarter-mile time of 13.8 seconds, while Car and Driver reported that the car "offers dragstrip performance that most cars with 100 cubic inches more displacement will envy." In fact, Sports Car Graphic found that a 1971 Mach 1 equipped with a 429 Cobra Jet engine just nipped the Boss 351 in a race from zero to 60mph, 6.3 seconds to 6.6, despite its 78-cubic-inch advantage.

Super Stock and Drag Illustrated reported in its March, 1971 issue. "Its looks and absolutely unique idle were attention-getters like those of few other cars in recent memory."
