    This '69 Boss 302 would look so good parked next to my Mach. Oh, the indignity of having a gearhead's taste on a peon's budget. At least I can snag the photo for my background picture.

    In my very prejudiced opinion .............. Ford will NEVER duplicate the styling of the 1969, 1970 Mustang Sport Roof (Fastback). To me, those two styles are the best, most beautiful, sportiest and cool of the 52 years in Mustang history.

      You are certainly not the only one with the budget issues Steve. At least you have two beauties in your garage.

        I will admit to being jaded to this body style, but it was SO good that Toyota duplicated it in 3/4 scale in around 1978 or so

            Me either, I could not afford a Mach or Fastback so I started looking for a Coupe. I acquired this one a little while later. IMHO 69/70's are the nicest looking years of all the years of Mustangs. That Boss 302 would look nice sitting next to my 69 Coupe, now only if I had a 2 car garage. LOL.

                + 10,000. Hood scoops, whether a 'Shaker' ,a Mach I style or my favorite the BOSS 429 big a$$ scoop MUST appear on any V-8 Mustang, and any year.

                    What do you mean by that statement?

                      While the topic is up for discussion - what is everyone's opinion/feelings regarding a non-FoMoCo-based scoop on a '69/'70 Mustang?

                      Such as a "Pro Stock" style...like this: https://www.amazon.com/Street-Scene-...ass+hood+scoop

                      Or a GM-based Cowl Induction style...like this: https://www.amazon.com/JEGS-Performa...ass+hood+scoop

                      Or the Thunderbolt-style 'tear drop' style...like this: https://www.amazon.com/Street-Scene-...ass+hood+scoop

                      There was a mustang at my local track with a cougar-style, wider hood scoop with a center finger support.... (Poo, I couldn't locate a pic of one for this post......but anyways) .... I thought it looked good on it.

                        Steve,, I've had people stand about mid door, and take pics of the rear qtr. I tried it myself,, that is a beautiful body line going on there.. AND I must agree,, SHAKERS are a MUST.!!!

                          A bunch of Celicas in the seventies ripped off many Mustang design themes. For example, look at this POS:

                              Interesting, I never noticed it before either, but by golly, there it is! There is no doubt where they got that body style idea from.
