No secret about the ugly seats or destroyed dash or the double ugly wheels. Why in God's green earth would anyone do this to a Boss9. Well, we missed the end of the world anyway. Merry Christmas.

Marti is now breaking down cars by DSO and Dealership to make them "One of One"? 

Did you notice the DSO and dealership on the window sticker and on the Marti Report aren't the same?  Do you think maybe it was a dealer to dealer transfer?

And, the dealers are in different states!

Interesting. Dealer to dealer trades and transfers aren't that uncommon. In fcat my black car was delivered to one dealer and sold through another.

Not just different states, but different DSO's (72 = San Jose, 74 = Seattle).

As to Kevin Marti utilizing the DSO and Dealer's to get Boss 9's down to 1 of's, it's because the vast majority of them other than color combinations were optioned exactly the same.

 I must admit I'm in no hurry to show pictures of our 70 grabber blue car and what I did to it in the early 80's.  Nor would I want to show those pics with the cars VIN or KK number,  Kinda like those topless pictures of our spouses from the college days, it would taint it / her forever. ::)

I think it needs a bushel basket of Grover Clevelands thrown at it. I need those seats for my cushy deer blind.

I remember about 10 years ago a 70 Boss 429 grabber (can't remember if it was green or orange now) just east of Dearborn that came in from Florida.  A local wrench was putting in a new engine for a customer.  From what I saw the wrench was pulling out the original parts and putting in "stuff" left and right and the owner didn't realize how much the original parts were worth.

Hope the owner got to keep the original parts

 I think its cool looking, minus the paint matched bumpers, front spoiler and seat choice. Also, one car I would not want to pull up to, at a street light. I bet that sucker screams!

The cars are great, but the people are even better

I think that means only 95 Sportsroofs with a semi-deluxe black int (no decor door panels). I've never seen a semi deluxe int except in a B9 but I guess according to the numbers there must have been 52 Sportsroofs so equiped given there were 43 GG/black B9's. Never saw a Boss 302 with semi either.

As I understood dealer it is originally delivered to is listed in lines 70-75   It is listed as 72d034.   This is the same as the listed selling dealer.  So I dont think it can be a dealer transfer someone before.   Not really sure what to make out of the difference in sticker and report.   It may be possible it was transfered then transfered back but I dont know.   Kinda a long distance so I doubt it.
Current piles of rust:
1965:  New yorker   1968:  GTO convert,  Lemans convert  Porche 911 sportomatic  1969: MustangGT convert,  Mustang s codeMach1,  Mustang R code mach1, GTO convert,  Firbird Convert  1970 Boss 302,   1999:f250 CNG truck   2011:nissan altima  Gotta get rid of some of these lol
