What else is there to know? In the fourth picture they show that the hood, both doors, and the decklid all open. No other questions. Stupid set of pictures.

Lots more pictures on their own web page. They have been around a long time, I remember their old place in Sugarland, Tx. Test drove a 69 GT500 (I think) deep red color back in about 2003 as well as my first BOSS.  Haven’t been to Fredrickburg for many years but it’s worth a visit just for some lunch at one of the many great German restaurants on Main Stráße!

The brake line (wrapped around the exhaust) and the fuel line (on the exhaust) removes the "high Level resto") from the ad. Wonder what else is bad that we cannot see..

     It seems most "Restoration" shops grew out of "Body" shops looking for higher paying customers; and as I have witnessed from our customers' restorations presented for repairs, they often lack in the mechanical execution department.       ;)

Yes, routing of the fuel line scares the hell out of me. But at least the brake and fuel lines can easily be redone. However I don't think I'd drive the vehicle till the fuel line receives attention.

Vehicle in question is listed as VIN 9F02G187691. Both the dealer's website (Street Dreams Texas of Fredericksburg, TX) and the eBay ad list the vehicle for $72,500.

Vehicle description by the dealer:
"Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 20th year in the classic and muscle car business. Ford's Boss 302 Mustang earned its legendary status almost immediately upon its introduction in 1969, largely based on hard-fought battles waged on the racetracks and roadways of America. Built in order to homologate the special engine for Trans Am racing, the production Boss 302 was a barely tamed race car that sported huge ports and valves, a monstrous Holley 780 cfm carburetor, four bolt main bearings, and a stout solid-lifter camshaft. We are positively thrilled to offer this blue chip 1969 Boss 302 Mustang, particularly during this iconic automobile's 50th anniversary. Far less common than the 1970 model, a mere 1628 Boss 302's were made in 1969. According to the original invoice (!) this jewel was well equipped when it left the factory, sporting Bright Yellow (9) paint, Boss 302 V8, special handling suspension, Magnum 500 styled steel wheels, special cooling package, functional front spoiler, functional and adjustable rear spoiler, close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission (6), Traction-Lok differential, power steering, power front disc brakes, and an AM radio. This high-level restoration features the correct markings, hoses, clamps, decals, and overspray. The strong and correct engine (BCN C8FE-6015B, derivative F187xx1) is sporting the correct carburetor (C9ZF-9510-J), intake manifold (C9ZE9424-E), and exhaust manifolds. This MCA National Concours winner has its original invoice and build sheet and has been signed by Larry Shinoda, the father of the Boss 302. Come by and see one of the nicest 1969 Boss 302's on the market, but hurry, this one won't last long. Street Dreams 830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options."

Further info from the dealer's website:
"Street Dreams Texas is a First Class Classic Auto Dealer. We do not specialize in wholesale dealings with classics cars, but rather focus on providing our customers with quality cars that are more dependable than the day they were new. As you may have already found out, there are a considerable amount of cars that are not up to the proper standards.

We take great pride in our cars and trucks and have done so since we opened our doors in 1999. Our shop is located in Fredericksburg, Texas and is open to the public during business hours. Please stop by and take a look at our inventory.

We maintain our inventory online to the best of our ability to allow you to see the cars we have available. In addition to these, we have many cars that are being brought into a 'sales ready' condition. What is sales ready you may ask? Well, we go over our cars and work to bring them up to our standards. This includes a detailed 3 page check-in for the vehicles that we get so we can grade them and repair them accordingly. We do this to keep our customers happy; we have an extensive list of loyal customers that have purchased multiple vehicles from us and have been happy with each and every purchase.

We are proud and confident in our grading of the vehicles and we work to ensure what you see on our site is accurate and that you are getting a quality classic auto.

We do not have a high pressure sales approach but encourage you to ask questions about a car you are interested in purchasing.

We are a full dealer and will buy, sell, and trade on all types of classic, vintage vehicles. We will also entertain some late model vehicles on certain trades. Please be aware, we deal in classics and vintage vehicles so we will not be interested in everything for a trade. We also welcome dealers, and in special cases, owners that wish to consign their cars with us."


After looking at the routing of the fuel line and reading what this dealer says "we go over our cars and work to bring them up to our standards." continues to reinforce my opinion that most so called classic car dealers like to obtain the best looking and complete vehicles they can. Put little or no work into them. Mark the vehicle up for a good profit and in the end they are only in it for their own gain.

From their website I also find this comment rather telling:

OVER $1.2 MILLION CLASSIC TRUCKS SOLD IN 2018!   And that's just the trucks!

According to window sticker only option was AM radio...no louvers, chrome wheels, clock dash,  Been on their website for at least 2 months.  Fredericksburg has blown up ...not like it was, too many wineries (traffic) and commercial junk around there.  Usually only go for the August swap meet.

Then it should have a single non-remote chrome mirror as well.
