Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Craigslist, or go here if the ad disappears.
What’s your take on this mischievous Mustang and that $42,500 price? Does that seem like a deal for so storied a car? Or, does the pre-production nature not factor into its value as much as the seller seems to think it will?

The engine is a massaged version of Ford’s Coyote 5.0 V8, good for 444 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. Behind that is an MT-82 six-speed manual feeding a posi rear end. The Boss 302 benefits over the lesser GT by way of a lowered and stiffer suspension that also is adjustable, and by way of an extra set of keys that can limit or open up the performance depending on the need.
The Boss 302 name was originally applied to the Mustang in 1969, and continuing through the 1970 model year. Intended as a potent entry into the SCCA Trans-Am series, the rules of which capped participant displacement at 305 cubic inches, the Boss 302 also found favor on the street due to its expressive graphics package and stellar performance.
Today’s 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 pre-production prototype looks to be a very good boss. Being a pre-series car, it’s also one that went through some training to get the kinks out.
