Two Fords and a Chevrolet between them.
Which of these 3 classic cars would you have?
Lets Start with the 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351
In 1971, a long time ago, The Mustang received another restyle that would be the final one on the first generation of cars. The car was bigger in size and weight and it Also featured a new sharper look with a much wider track. Unfortunately, the Boss 302 and Boss 429 versions were gone, With the Grande and Mach 1 staying put, although with lower power ratings.
There was one interesting model introduced in 1971 called the Boss 351. This car was only available for one year,and the ’71 Mustang Boss 351 was one of the rarest Mustangs that Ford produced because Ford only made 1,800 of them. It was powered by a highly-tuned version of the 351 V8 engine with around 330 HP. The Boss 351 was fast, good looking, and more expensive than the Mach 1 version of the same model year.
Today, it is a truly high-priced collector’s item.
The Yenko Camaro 427
The Yenko family started a Chevrolet dealership in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, in 1949. In the late 1950s, when Don Yenko managed the business, the company turned to the performance car market. They started with a series of race-prepared Corvettes Don raced himself and then moved to full conversion jobs based on various Chevrolet models.
With the Camaro’s introduction in 1967, Yenko started converting them to 427 V8 power, and selling them as Yenko Super Cars. In addition to more power, super wild graphics, and a huge list of options, Yenko even offered a factory warranty, thus heavily promoting his models. That’s why these Yenko Camaros were the most popular choice in a custom 427 V8 conversion a regular SS. They only produced those 427 Camaros for just a few years. The total production number was around 600 and there is only a handful left.
1970 Shelby GT 500
What a car…….
In the early 1970s, Ford had created numerous performance versions of the Mustang and Shelby models, but they had become outdated. This ment the cars’ demand was lower and production numbers were even smaller.
The 1970 Shelby GT500 was still a fabulous classic muscle car that came as coupe and convertible. Under the hood was the 428 V8 engine, which they conservatively rated at 335 HP. But it really produced more than 400HP in real-life. In the end, Ford only built 789 1970 models.
