Pre-production cars are vehicles that allow the automaker to find problems before a new model goes on sale to the public. Pre-production cars come after prototypes, or development mules which themselves are preceded by concept cars. Pre-production vehicles are followed by production vehicles in the mass production of them for distribution through car dealerships.
For consignment, a pre-production 2012 Boss 302 Mustang that has the unique distinction of being the only pre-production car that was produced in Kona Blue with black cloth interior. All is right with this car including extensive documentation, a snappy interior, and of course, the track key. With a mere 11,905 miles clocked on her it's a very low mileage example and it's a one of one.
Bathed in Kona Blue, its claim to fame, all panels are laser straight, gaps are well minded, and with contrasting white on the roof, hood bump up area, and the essential hockey stick cove with Boss 302 badging, all is right with this mass of muscle. Trimmings present in black as window surrounds, front spoiler, rocker covers, and rear spoiler. The Mustang has retained its original design cues and lines from the first version in 1964-1/2. Front end has become more smoothed, but still menacing, cove is there, and the rear taillights are still in groups of 3's. Even the B pillar uses the curved window for the rear passengers, this time in lieu of the original venting that was on some of the first version fastbacks. 19-inch black powder coated wheels are on all 4 corners and use the galloping horse badge in the central hub.
Inside we have near perfect broadcloth high backed bucket seats with an additional headrest on top. With plenty of side bolstering on the seat and back, it definitely helps keep you firmly planted there when utilizing the track key, and I'm speaking from experience! These buckets also sport Boss 302 embroidering on the upper backs and are manually operated. A similar design 2 plus 2 rear seating arrangement is stuffed in back. For the dash also in black and gray, we see blue glowing readouts for the instruments and push button controls. A simple layout again harkening back to the original with dual rounded large gauges and centrally located panel with other smaller gauges. A leather covered steering wheel is the perfect size for this car and sports some control buttons at your fingertips. Dark gray carpet all clean, covers the floors, and a tight dark gray headliner is above. Rock and roll!
A 5.0 liter V8 Coyote engine is stuffed into the engine bay under the hood. It has a cold air induction system that feeds air to electronic fuel injection. On back is an MT-82 6-speed manual transmission, and for the rear axle a Ford 8.8-inch 3.73 gear setup. A shout out to this engine as it looks absolutely showroom with highly detailed clean components, plastic coverings and blue valve covers.
Underneath ground effects plastic coverings abound and no surface rust for the unibody, floorpans, rockers and even wheel wells, all clean here! Some corrosion on the aluminum parts on the bottom end, but certainly nothing of significance. Manual adjustable suspension in independent Macpherson struts for the front, and 3 link with Panhard bar rear suspension. Power Wilwood front discs are now on, and the rear also has power discs. Rear and side exit exhausts offer up plenty of breathing for the 5.0 liters of power to exit.
With track key on hand she fired right up, and out was off to the test track, which is why I used the track key! Here it has plenty of acceleration, smooth quick ability to shift manually with the short throw shifter, and quick panic stopping. It also provided a nice low rumble cruise at highway speed. All functions were working perfectly, and seating was very comfortable. Use caution with the track key though because all the typical nannies are disabled so you can easily have the rear trying to outrun the front with this mode on.
Kona Blue, 1 of 1 pre-production car available, now available for sale. Nicely preserved, low miles, and near perfect exterior. Highly detailed engine bay, and comfortable cloth interior. Definitely an interesting ride with some throwback to its original roots adding nice touches.
