Great book about this legendary Mustang. Great pictures, well documented. You might be able to afford a 302 Boss (one day she'll be mine) but you van keep dreaming with this book.

Format: Hardcover
Farr has been involved with Mustangs for several decades now, from being a passenger in grandpa's new `66 (a car he now owns) to being bought his own--a Boss look-alike--in 1970 to learning what a real Boss was all about, then buying a used Boss, researching the model's history, and thereby laying the groundwork for a full-fledged professional life revolving around writing about Mustangs. These days he is the Editor of "Mustang Monthly Magazine". His 1982 book on the same subject has become the benchmark title. As before, Farr has interviewed many of the principals, obviously from the current but also the original project, and the many verbatim quotes lend the book authority. A number of new insights have come to light since the 1980s so the old book would have benefited from updating whether or not there is a new Boss 302.

Little is said of the '94 retro-styled Mustang for which the Boss' original designer Larry Shinoda developed a "re-creation" graphics package, and nothing is (or, rather, this being an "official Ford book, can be) said about the Boss Shinodas that are still being made toady.

FordMustang Bos 302 2013 Version/Updated/Revised Hardcover. Feb. 18 2014
By Jose Lopez - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Mustang Boss 302 From Racing Legend to Modern Muscle Car-Hardcover-2013-Updated and Revised.Yellow cars on Cover.

I have never been a Stang Guy far from being Blue Oval the only Ford I ever owned was a 95' Contour GL(Sadly MexicanMade)and 4cylinders and Unreliable.I have a bias against the Mustangs not because I am A Corvette/Camaro/Firebird(FBody) Guy but because I will never forget my neighbor "Rob"(Robert/roberto) had a black GT 5.0 86' hatch and anniversary model/91 green car.
I will never forget Me being a kid when I asked him as a kid about the car and he cursed me out,although he also had a Ninja Bike I love those. Then Again,I will recall his brother Roger was nicer had a 280Z and Rob had a Friend who would come in a Red 74' Stingray Corvette now that I thought was nicer.I also am always being cut off by Stang owners as I drive responsibly this however is endemic of Modern Mustang Drivers/Fratboys etc. That being said, The book is greatly detailed I have had read the book as I have read other Blue oval books such as Total Performance,GTThenandNow,MustangLegends among others and Shelby books.
I own one Shelby book and this,The history is covered here and there is mention of How Unbeatable Donohue was in The Camaro in The Trans-Am Series,sure 1970 would be a bad one for the Bowtie Brigade/MarkOfExcellence Crowd and thereafter in racing,But there is NO Denying while The 69/70' Boss Cars are the Real Deal and Sure the New cars sound Nice they will always be fords,Henry Ford though was a Genius(He resisted the Unions which I applaud until he couldn't sadly.)also Ford taking it to Ferrari.The book has the Whole Story and Again for Gearheads to add to a Library Unbiased and Full of all Makes/models you must add the book to your list to own and read Specifically Ford Fans.I read it and It is Passionate and the author and publisher did a Excellent Job,there is this version which have with the yellow cars on the cover and the older 2011 with the blue cars on the cover.I recommend reading it.

Great Followup BOSS 302 Book - Will Be Another Collectible Aug. 11 2011
By Peter L. Sigwardt - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Donald Farr is considered by most Mustang enthusiasts as the best author possible to update the iconic Ford BOSS 302 Mustang history. He authored the very best book in the 1980's about the car MUSTANG BOSS 302 - FORD's TRANS-AM PONY CAR which is now a collectible and highly prized by Mustang enthusiasts. This new book includes more historical information about the original 1969-70 BOSS 302's plus a great deal of development information about the new 2012 BOSS 302's. I am proud to have added this new book to my personal Mustang history library. Congratulations to Donald Farr and thanks to John Clor and all the contributors to the new book.
