Steeda releases 2012 Patriot Edition Boss 302 for the troops

With the black-bagging of Bin Laden, we all think it’s time to step back and once again say “thank you” to all the United States Armed Services personnel who are in action at home & abroad, fighting the good fight, so the rest of us can roll down highway in our Ford Mustang with the 2-60 air on.  Steeda Autosports is taking the salutation and thank you one step further with a pair of Boss 302 Mustangs to be awarded, tax-exempt, to one lucky winner of their sweepstakes.

Boss 302 crate motors now available from Ford Racing

Earlier this week, Ford Racing put the rumor to rest that new Boss 302 5.0-liter V8 crate motors would be available outside of the 2012 Boss 302 Mustang shell.  The Ford Racing catalog features the 5.0 crate engine under part #M-6007-M50B and will come fully capable of the same neck-jerk power we’ve all been drooling over…a wonderful 444 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of tire smokin’ goodness.  So what’s the wallet damage for this pony car power plant?  The Boss 302 crate motor will hold a sticker of $11,999…equaling a $5K bump in price over the Mustang GT crate motor’s price tag of $6,999.  That doesn’t seem all to bad at first blush, but when reflection shines back, you realize it’s a steep bill for a mere 32 horsepower more.  Guess the branding is the bulk of the cost…

Nonetheless, keep reading to see all the nitty gritty details on the Ford Racing aluminum 5.0-liter Mustang Boss 302 crate engine.

The owner of 2012 Mustang Boss 302 #0001 shares the story

There is absolutely no doubt owning a low-production number Ford Mustang is where it’s at when it comes to collector caliber automobiles.  From the Cobra R to the Mustang Bullitt to the first reborn Shelby GT500s to roll out, every Mustang fan gets excited about having “that one” or just flat out owning one of the first ever crafted by Ford.

In this nifty little clip, we learn about the owner of the first production 2012 Mustang Boss 302…which is surely to become a collection piece in due time.  Amidst the mark-up madness and exclusivity that many recent late model Mustangs have brought to light, the 2012 Boss 302 #0001 just didn’t enter the scene with the same fanfare.  It was meagerly priced at just $5k over sticker (far below what many dealerships are hoping to get) and one man, Shane McGlaun, just happened to be in the right place at the right time to find the first Boss 302.
