2007 Galpin Mustang Boss 302

The BOSS 302 Mustang has been missing since 1970 and the Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) team brought it back with this SEMA show car. It’s the first to use Ford’s new 302 crate engine, but with a host of radical upgrades from GAS.

Ford Racing Performance Parts BOSS 302 line was conceived because there was an unmet need for engines built from a block stronger than original regular production 302 blocks but more affordable than full race-prepped blocks. The new BOSS 302 engine block features greater strength than most race blocks and offers a street-capable cooling system design, something that race specific blocks tend to sacrifice.

Depending on configuration, the BOSS engine series is capped by a 500 hp 331 cubic inch engine that showcases its capability. In the case of the showcar it gets 390-hp and a vintage 1970 Holley carburetor.
