Kevin purchased his first Mustang while in the USA in 1972 – a 1967 Dark Moss Green Fastback – which was sent back to Melbourne together with some spare parts for it and in the container he slipped in some high performance engine parts that he knew he could sell. This was the start of his business venture and Boss Auto Parts.
The next Mustang in the stable was a 1970 Grabber Blue Boss 302 which won the Most Improved class at the MOCA VIC State Concours in 1975.
Some of his other cars owned included:
1970 Grabber Green Boss 429 – 1968 Red Shelby GT500 Fastback
1966 White/Blue Shelby GT350 Fastback
It all started for Kevin in the early 1970’s when with Frank Thomson, Warwick Dowsley and Frank Hayes an ad was placed in the newspaper for interested Mustang owners to attend a meeting, and this resulted in a run being organised to Badger Creek Weir in Healesville in 1974.
About 30 Mustangs turned up, and from this the first Mustang Club in Australia – the Victoria branch was formed.
