The Boss 351 Mustang was the new high-performance Ford Mustang variant that was offered by Ford beginning in 1971. In 1970 Ford cancelled their previous performance models the Boss 302 and Boss 429 as a result of increasing insurance premiums, and tighter emissions standards. Ford also withdrew from factory sponsored racing and therefore no longer needed a car that held the big block 429 engine. All of these factors led to the introduction of the Boss 351 in 1971. GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 to the global market.

In 1971 Super Stock and Drag Illustrated said about the Boss 351 that, "Its looks and absolutely unique idle were attention-getters like those of few other cars in recent memory." And that remains true even to this day. With only 1,806 of these cars being produced in 1971, this car comes complete with a Marti Report and original build sheet. The Market for the Boss 351 continues to rise and a car with owner history and documentation as the one offered here is a must consideration.
