Early Mustangs of the Ford Display at the SEMA Show
It’s the first day of the SEMA show and our first stop was of course the Ford display, which dominates the main hall. Among a gang of modified 2015 Mustangs, Fiestas, Focuses (Foci?), and trucks were a few early model Mustangs. Most noticeable at first sight were the ’69 Mach 1 and yellow ’70 Boss 302 parked up high above the main stage, flanking the left side of the huge video screen that’s showing Ford videos all during the show. The Mach 1 is a legit 428CJ car owned by Randy Granger of nearby Henderson, NV, who’s had the car for 35 years. Sitting on top of the 428 and poking through the formerly Shaker hood is a big, chrome 6-71 blower with dual carbs, and while there are Mickey Thompson Drag Radials out back, Randy hasn’t had a chance to run the car at the dragstrip yet, but promises that he will soon. The yellow ’70 Boss 302 belongs to Shannon Moore of Kansas City. Both car owners entered a contest put together by Ford for the Mustangs Through Time display, and were chosen to display their ponies a the show.
