Real or fake ?

This "boss " parked next to me kinda looks like a sixxer to me .. Not sure what's off . But it does not have the axle backs on it, the emblem looks Cheesy . Just wondering if this guy tried to badge his his car with the wrong badges.
not that it matters just bothers me every day I see it lol .

Also the dash looks brushed and I thought the boss had a carbon fiber look

it could be a premium GT with a boss 302 engine....my neighbors just bought one this week from a local dealer...at first i thought just another premium GT till i popped the hood and saw the boss 302 engine under the hood. had a really nice interior too...so yeah could be the same

however i'm gonna say boss badge on a v6 from just the wheels on it since it doesn't have the GT premium wheels

It's not a boss engine it just has the boss intake

i know the difference between the two engines...this is a full on boss motor under the hood, ford racing TB, C&L CAI...now the engine may have been put into the car and the dealership not known about it, so i can't be sure...all i know is that it's a premium GT and there's a boss motor in it

with the hood popped this is a perfect shot of what i see...except for the TB and CAI of course....and their GT has the STB in the pic too

That's what I thought . I don have a problem with v6 ( I drive one ) but I do hate when people put misleading badges on a car.

Now that I looked a the front I'm pretty sure it's not a true boss but I still don't think it's even a gt.

It's the internals that would be different. Anyone with the 5.0 can add those mods, even most dealerships will sell a package deal on them. (At least here they do).

To the op that very well might be a gt but is in no way a boss...the front end looks like a gt and the wheels look like powder coated gt wheels so he may have a gt with a boss intake and decided to brand his car a boss either way be proud of what you drive and screw what people think IMHO

He could be a street racer and took the decals off on purpose.
