1969 Boss 302 Trans Am Dan Gurney Race Prototype
Beautifully restored 1969 Shelby Trans Am Mustang Boss 302 that belonged to Dan
Gurney. There were only three cars built for the 1969 season and this car
chassis 9F02R-112073 was the prototype, test car, and Ford media car.
The car was driven by Dan Gurney at Kent and he then practiced with it at
Sears Point. Peter Revson drove it at Laguna Seca finishing 4th overall for
the car's best result of the 1969 season.
The car was then used as a test car at Bud Moore's shop, raced by John
Gimbel of Dark Horse Racing, went back to Bud Moore, and was then sold to
Daher Racing from Guadalajara Mexico. Believe it or not, the car found its
way back to Bud Moore who then sold it to Danny Moore. Danny Moore used
this vehicle to win the SCCA National Championship. It was in 2003 that the

Parnelli Jones' Boss 302 Mustang race car at Fabulous Fords Forever 2011
While at the Fabulous Fords Forever show in Buena Park, California on April
11, 2011, I was witness to an incredible orchestra emanating from the
exhibition area after the show ended and most everybody and their cars had
left the grounds, so I rushed over to the grassy area and lo and behold,
what did I see? The owners of this fabulous Boss Mustang had arrived from Canada and
backed the race car out of the trailer. After a slumber of 9 months, the
Mustang was started and
unleashed into the parking lot and then returned to the trailer. What an
experience!! Super nice owners, very willing to talk about the car - you
are a tribute to the hobby. Thank you, gentlemen!
