@ Super8: Yeah, 135 MPH sounds more accurate, 117 MPH, my mom's minivan can beat that, it has a factory claimed to speed of 120 MPH and can probably do 126 according to automobile-catalog.com.

The Boss 302 is a legend, I'm pretty sure the top speed is more than 117 MPH.

Like a lot of kids in 1969, I followed all the road race series. Road racing had more coverage in U.S. media back then than either NASCAR or NHRA (although they were getting plenty of coverage as well). Motorsports interest was big at the time. Ferraris, Corvettes, Jaguars, Porsches, Mustangs, Camaros, (the whole pony car class in fact) were seen as successful road race cars. Few road race enthusiasts in the U.S. had ever heard of BMWs or Audis; or any Japanese cars back then.

A nice performance package for 1969. Noted to have excellent handling and braking for its time. It was after all a homologation special. These original Boss 302 models formed the base from which the factory built the cars used in the SCCA Trans-Am race series. SCCA had established a limit of 5 liters in Trans-Am, therefore Ford developed this 4.9 liter fast Mustang.

Six seconds to 60 and the 1/4 mile in 14.57@97.57.

Not too shabby for a car that made under 290hp (pre-net ratings) and horrible tires.
