There is a yellow Mustang in Pune. Probably from the 70's all original. I'll try and get pics when possible.

Which engine is this? The first Boss engines only came in 1969, with the 302. But still, omigawd!

The "Bluffmaster" convertible is not a BOSS at all. It's just a plain vanilla 1969 Mustang convertible.

There was never any 1967 BOSS fastback, notchback nor convertible!

Both the BOSSes, the BOSS 429 and the Larry Shinoda designed baby boss, the BOSS 302 came in 1969.

Sorry it is a 69, made a typo eror when posting. Well got to look at his car pics when he bought it and it has "boss 302" markings on the fenders as well as on the air cleaner. It even had the Magnum 500 wheels in the pic. Maybe manvenra singh in his enthusiasm or theprevious owner chopped off the hood as in the car at team motor works in juhu. A lot of mustangs featured in films and were abused by their hoods being chopped off. Am going to see the car in person in a couple o days and verify myself and if u can come ram, i tell u his collection is worth seeing. Lemme know if ure interested. Its at vashi so ive not gone since he shifted his collection there around a year ago after which i hav'nt found time to go see his cars.

The Mustang in "Bluffmaster" is a genuine 1969 Convertible with the base V8 -302 and an automatic transmission. It has a BOSS stripe on the side and Mach1 style black out bonnet and scoop. Also it had original Mach1 slotted GT wheels and not Magnum 500s (current owner might have changed don't know). Car is painted "BULLITT" green. Features some nice options like the center console and a rectangular clock on the passenger side.

I thought the car was painted Raven Black. The centre console was standard on all 1969 Mustang convertibles, i.e. both the type 76A convertible and the type 76B convertible with deluxe interior.

@MustangMan: Is it possible for you to obtain the VIN code (from dashboard) and Vehicle Data Code (from door pillar)?
Then we can establish the correct configuration for the Mustang in "Bluffmaster".
Right now it seems to be a modded mix of features.

In an authenticity test, all features must comply with the VIN and VDC.

The VIN contains coded information about:
Model year, Mfg. Plant, Bodystyle, Engine

The VDC contains coded information about:
Body type, color, interior trim, production date, gearbox and axle type.


More about the VIN number
All American cars must have a VIN (Vehicle Identification number) stamped into steel
on the left-side upper surface of the instrument panel,
visible from outside through the windshield.
It is a US federal offense if the VIN plate is missing or unreadable.
In such cases the police will “tag” a replacement VIN or suspend the vehicle's registration.

Whenever a vehicle is repaired or painted, the DMV (Dept. of Motor Vehicles) [the US RTO] of
both places, the original registration place and the place in whose jurisdiction the repair/paint shop is located, must be informed.

The car in question had magnum 500s on them when purchased. Maybe hes changed them to current mach1 GTs
and the car is in Bullit green not Raven black. That might be another car altogether
