This Mustang was used by Larry Shinoda and his design team as a platform for the all new 1969 BOSS 302. In addition, Shinoda appears to have used this Mustang for personal transportation too.

The Mustang started life as a 1969 Mach 1 Cobra Jet Ram-Air model. Its color is Pastel Gray with a Black Mach 1 interior. Many have assumed it was White based on early pictures of the car, But seeing the car in person as well as the Color code on the door tag, confirms it is Pastel Gray. Shinoda's styling changes, which made their way onto the production BOSS 302 include:
  • C-shape stripes on the fenders and doors
  • black out paint around the headlights, the rear taillight panel and deck lid
  • rear window louvers
  • rear spoiler
  • filling in of the side scoops

LOCATED: Talk about a barn find...this lost Mustang icon was literally found stored in a barn in Illinois. There is even a dent in the passenger door put there by the owners' cow! For years, the owners had no idea of the significance of this Mustang. They are now having it restored to its original 1969 glory.
