Speaking of Boss 302 Mavericks...
« on: March 19, 2003, 05:35:53 pm »
Check this out...ebay item #2407989557. Maybe someone can make it so you can just click it on. Not much of a computer guru. There are some very rare Boss pieces on this car! check it out. The car is #15 off of the assembly line & was supplied by Ford. If anybody remembers, many Mavericks received Boss motor transplants for all kinds of racing.

I vaguely remember a magazine article back in the '70's, and there was an article about a "Hoss 302". I think it was Ak Miller who'd lubed up a Maverick engine bay and slid in a Boss 302. He'd added some suspension upgrades and described great joy in blowing off 911's in the L.A. canyons. It even had 'Hoss 302' side stripes.

That's a nice piece of history.  I could drool over it all day.  Can't believe it still has the manual box in it!

Quite nice, and nostalgic too.

Maverick or not, you have to admit that would be a sweet ride to pull up to the local cruise night in.  Not to mention the joy of shuffling through all those parts six or seven times.
  No, my otherwise understanding SWMBO probably wouldn't understand me adding that to the stable.

Hey GS, how much do you think it would cost? Maybe we should all chip in and buy it. It could be the fastest Boss 302 0n the planet.

Maybe the quickest but with 4.86 gears, not the fastest, I think.

I have several old Hot Rod magazines depicting Boss 302 engined Mavericks. 4 of the cars including the one on ebay were semi factory efforts, thus the low VIN on that Maverick. They were all given to certain sucessful drag racers in 1969 just prior to the 70 Maverick introduction kick off. I'll bet all 4 of these Mavericks had special order #s on their door data plates. There were several more privateer efforts as well. This Boss Maverick was a 4 year record holder & is probably worth every bit of $20,000, especially with all those nostalgia Boss engine pieces. Who could forget Stripper II, this was the  Boss Maverick that was a semi factory effort. The car was built by Bob McNall & Lou Williams, both Ford engineers, with an engine set back that was designed by Doug Nash. It ran in C gas & blew the doors off of everybody back then, consistantly turning in the 10 second range. No NOS, No turbo, No Super charger, just a home built(Ford Engineered)injectors that was a one off piece at the time.
Frank-I think this would be a good cat to add to your collection, as your really into the Drag Racing thing! What's the wife gonna say? LOL

I would have to dig deep, but I'm sure I have the Hot Rod Mag article as well as some pics the seller had given me...although the car had morph'd quite a bit by then. I passed on the car because I felt it would require a rebody to get it back to its' original as raced condition. It had been modified so many times, it was pretty far from its' original state.  Did you end up buying the car??

My buddy talked to the current owner the other night, but he didn't get a good idea of what kind of shape it's in now. Maybe you could elaborate on that? Whether or not a deal is made, we would like to find any photos, articles, info, etc. on the car. I'd really appreciate any help you could give. I'll send you a pm with more details....Ron

Btw, my buddy road races a Mustang (Boss block) and has multiple A/Sedan national championships!
