This 1969 Mustang Boss 302 Was A Dodge Double Agent

Though some car fans flit from brand to brand, many know what they like and stick with it. So a classic Dodge obsessive probably isn’t going to be interested in making room for a Ford Mustang in his garage. But here’s one Mustang with a very unique Chrysler connection that might persuade Dodge and Plymouth fans to go blue.

On the face of it, it’s just a nicely restored 1969 Boss 302, a desirable car, but not much different to many of the other 649 examples born wearing Bright Yellow paint – the Boss’s most popular color – that year.

What makes it more interesting though, and relevant to Dodge lovers, is that this 302 being auctioned by Mecum in May, was bought new by Chrysler in 1969 to help it develop its own rival products, the Dodge Challenger T/A and Plymouth AAR Cuda.
