Not a W code. It’s a 3.91 V code.  The car has been well discussed on this site over the years.   I looked at in January and Rich is a honest seller with nothing to hide.  The  car presents well as an unrestored driver with tons of options.  I should have bought it!

SORRY, I did not see the "V" code on first look, got fooled by that Engine Oil cooler...  Still, a very highly optioned, rare combo BOSS!!!

That's a great buy and if you are thinking of owning a BOSS 302, this would be a good one!
1967 Tiger MK1-A
1970 Shelby GT350
2013 BOSS 302 LS #712 SBY
2016 Shelby GT350 Magnetic w/blk stripes
2017 GT350R Magnetic w/white stripes
Wife still Happy, recovering.
BOSS 302's are like a fabulous WI cheddar. Both get better with age and you buy them for your enjoyment, not as an investment.

Well after selling my car 3 years ago and having recently sold CA property and now officially relocated in Mooresville, NC this car was too tempting (and close) not to have a look.
My inclination was to pull the trigger and buy it for the uniqueness and overall survivor status of the car.  My gut however told me I would not be able to leave it alone and preserve it as is so that's the short story.
Things about the car that can never be replicated- the most amazingly perfect windshield fit and stainless trim fit I have ever seen.  If you pull that off and remove the glass to paint there is no way on earth it will ever look that good again.  The trunk other than a bit dirty has to be left alone it is virgin snow including the space saver spare.  That eliminates the possibility of repairing the passenger side rear corner that was done very poorly many many years ago and is just ugly enough that I couldn't leave it alone.  Any new paint on this car will be very obvious. Overall appearance at 10' or more to the untrained eye the car is super cool plain and simple.  Mechanically it's all there and then some. The interior has a perfect original headliner and sail panels- unheard of.  If you are serious to own a real Boss check this one out.  If you are inclined to go whole hog restoration please leave this car alone!
