Note:  Everyone knows that the Trim Rings were standard and the Magnum's were optional. But some literature (71 Mustang Illustrated Facts Book) states that Sports Wheel Covers were optional as well for the BOSS. We suspected the literature was wrong. Now we have a car to prove it may not be.                  

 

    

   Tires

 

Firestone vs. Goodyear. You really can't tell from the build sheet although a number of BOSS 351's actually had a line item option state:  "FIRESTONE BRAND NAME TIRES".

Usually the build sheet lists:

 /4/ F60X15 WIDE OVAL BELTED BSW TIRES/RAISED WHITE LETTERS

 

Bumper guards:

 

Three BOSS 351ís listed this as a line item: 

                                            FRONT AND REAR BUMPER GUARDS:                

                                  Price: Retail  $31.00 Wholesale  $ 24.49

 

Sports Wheel Covers:

 

At least two  BOSS 351's had this as a line item on a build sheet: 

SPORTS WHEEL COVERS      $ 23.00   $ 18.24

SPORTS WHEEL COVERS.  

Price: Retail  $23.00  Wholesale  $ 18.24
