S197 Boss Shinoda
I was wondering if I could get some information regarding a Boss mustang. One of my relatives found a mustang on the local chevrolet lot. The dealer says this is a 2008 mustang gt Boss. I was asked about it, but I haven't been able to find any information about it online. I am trying to figure out if this car is actually legit. If it is legit, how much would the car be worth over a standard 2008 gt?

Here is a link to the car from the dealership's website:

I would appreciate any info you can give me. I think the car is priced way too high unless this package is both legit and adds thousands in value to the car.

Looks to be a standard run-of-the-mill GT that is overpriced to me.

Nothing special there, just looks like added graphics.

Drop the price $5k and remove all of those stickers and you have a decent car to start modding with.

I wouldn't necessarily remove the stickers and Boss decals but just don't let the dealer try to sell you something that it's not. It's a nice clean looking stang but a little overpriced for the miles. You could get a 2010, if not, a 2011 5.0 for that price, give or take.

Thanks guys. That is what I thought. Before I told him anything, he offered $18 k to the dealership and was promptly refused. I thought that $18 k was way too high. I guess the dealer didn't want to move the cars on his lot. I will inform my relative that he should look for a different car. The majority of the car is in relatively good condition, but the front is full of paint chips.

i have a dealer here in NY right by my house that is selling a boss shinoda as well. looks like just appearance stuff and new CAI the one ive seen

Not a boss for sure. The decals r way to busy and out of place on with that hood. That isn't even worth 18k. I would of asked 15k

way way overpriced, i paid 14,200 for my 09 GT.

well its not a 100% standard GT... the hook is that you probably need to get the vin and then contact Shinoda to see if it is a car built by them, or if its a guy who added shinoda parts. think of shinoda as steeda or saleen, but they just build cars periodically, and always have parts for sale. See this link for an explanation of the build levels in case you are interested or visit their actual site here.

still probably not worth it, but at least there i a possibility its more than just stickers :)

xx10Gt 10-08-2013 05:53 AM

its built by Larry Shinoda... thats all i know as far as that goes though

Since Ford didn't make any Boss mustangs there were a number of 3rd parties that made their own versions of the Boss Mustang. So basically, all the Boss's between 2005 and 2010 were more aftermarket tribute cars than anything else, Ford didn't make any Boss's until the new 5.0 came out since the S197's were released. This particular version had many different stages, the cheaper stages included appearance upgrades (interior and exterior), while the more expensive stages including power and suspension upgrades. I'm not showing that the one linked in the OP's post had any upgrades other than appearance and interior changes, other than a upgraded shifter.

For more info on the Team Shinoda version of the Boss Mustang.....

I just wanted to bring this up since nobody is actually claiming it's a Ford generated Boss Mustang
