Described by the seller on eBay Motors:
This is a well documented, southwest all its life, no rust ever, older restoration (14 years) Boss with the potential to be made into a show car.

This Boss is solid as a “new dime” and was sold new in Scottsdale, Arizona. It then migrated to southern California, and there it remained until its restoration, beginning with an engine rebuild in 1988. It has seen very little use since. I have the rebuild invoice sheet from 1988.

It is well documented with color photos of the ten-year-old restoration, invoices and under-carpet build sheets.

This Boss has many really nice features and strong points, including matching numbers, all original metal, no rust to the body or undergear, a solid engine, great Magnum wheels with like-new radials, a solid exhaust with no rust, Autolite show battery and a hood tach.

It has been gone over by a professional Boss Mustang restorer and evaluated for major flaws. They are as follows: incidental paint defects, consistent with a ten-year-old paint job, and the transmission needs an overhaul including forks and possible synchros, estimated at about $500.
