Default 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: http://www.davekirk.com/VehicleDetai...-TN/2087572713

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.

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.

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
