Hard to imagine the amount of oversteer on this. I like keeping the hood scoop! Imagine getting beat by this car and asking to see what's under the hood!

They used a Mach 1. Hood scoop is standard as is the hood blackout and the stripes on the sides.

I can't even fathom the value of that car if it was still around today!

I posted a FB link about 10 years ago that’s now defunct but here’s current YouTube link to some great home movie footage at Kar Kraft, Ford’s unofficial skunkworks/official Boss 429 assembly partner. The mid engine Boss can be seen a few times.

Curious how they got the power to the differential, since the engine is basically sitting on it. I'm not aware of Ford having a front wheel drive car, like the Toronado, to use as the drivetrain.
