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
1969 Shelby Trans Am Mustang Boss 302 was restored by Phil
The Shelby Racing Team Boss 302 was restored to "a very high concours
standard with as many of the original parts retained as possible". Tony
Oddo of T.O.E Performance Products rebuilt the 8 cylinder engine to produce
527hp with 420 ft lbs of torque.
Last known asking price was $1,100,000.
Road America GT350R Northwoods Shelby Club
Having some fun @ Road America with my Northwoods Shelby Club buddies.
We use a Jerico straight cut dog ring road race transmission. The clutch is
used to get the car rolling, otherwise during on track use the driver lifts
off the throttle sufficiently to allow the dog ring to be pulled out of
engagement staying off the throttle just long enough to allow the dog ring
to engage with the next gear. In practice, the driver can move the gear
lever faster than he can move his
foot off and back on to the throttle. Therefore the effective method is to
apply load to the gear lever with your hand and then lift the throttle foot
off and back on to the pedal as fast as physically possible. In lifting
your foot, the loaded gear lever will almost involuntarily flick to the
next gear before the foot is re-applied to the throttle.
Down-shifting has similar rules applied regarding speed of shift. Unloading
the dogs is done in the opposite manner. While braking, the dogs must be
unloaded by touching the throttle pedal. One sharp dab of the throttle is
appropriate per shift. `Blipping the throttle` just before engagement is
advisable if the rev drops between gears are over 1300 rpm, as this will
aid engagement and stabilize the car.
This allows for much faster shifts
and since there are no syncros, there are non to destroy.
