What is the best doner car to make a Boss 302 or 429 out of? Just a 69 fastback?
yeah it would probably be easier to cut these quarter sections from a scrapped 69 coupe or build a 70 boss clone instead.1969 Boss 302's did not have the fake quarter scoops used on all other 1969 Mustang fastbacks. This makes is more difficult and expensive to replicate a 1969 Boss 302.
i wasnt saying to change the entire quarter just cut the small section in the foto with the pencil circle and weld that in the hole where the fake scoop is if using a 69 for a boss 302 clone. you could also cut the little pieces from 70 quartes. and this would be from quarters that are either badly damaged or too rusted to use. else you would have to fabricate pieces from sheet metal and weld in the holes. 69 boss 302 mustang did not come with the fake scoops.FYI, 69 coupe quarters won't be much use on a 69 Boss 302 clone.
No i am NOT planning on using a VIN. I guess I shoulda used the word clone instead.plain 69 fastback. i hope you aint planning own transfering a boss vin from a totaled one to another body. thats illegal and the car wouldnt be a real boss. however if your gonna take a 69 and add all the boss stuff you can find and not change the vin then thats whats called a clone and thats o.k. to do.
