Damn, it's your floor. The Monza Wagon it is, it was a re-emblemed Vega body (front sheetmetal was different).

Well your right. Tucker actully bought the company that produced those engines so he would have a constant supply. Bad move . He nearly went broke.

Boss refers to Bunkie Knudson, Ford's one time CEO. Bunkie was the Boss. That project was undertaken during his time at Ford.

The Boss' name was actually Semon.
Semon Emil 'Bunkie' Knudsen...If my name was Semon, I would go by a nickname too.

Would a 69 Boss 302 with very rusty floors trunk and one quarter be worth restoring.
