New Zealand Classic Car - - Behind The Garage Door -

his gen­uine Boss 351 Mus­tang is in the early stages of dis­as­sem­bly and restora­tion. It was pur­chased in the US, pri­vately im­ported by the owner and, like most im­ports, looked per­fect un­til its glossy-look­ing paint was re­moved.

The owner has a pas­sion for early ’70s Mus­tangs, in par­tic­u­lar the iconic Mach 1 and Boss mod­els, and his goal with the restora­tion of this Boss 351 is to make sure the car will be a per­fect fac­tory ex­am­ple when it’s com­pleted. The owner has been search­ing the in­ter­net for the past few years with orig­i­nal­ity in mind, and slowly build­ing up the re­quired parts — the ma­jor­ity of which are gen­uine old stock wher­ever pos­si­ble.
