32,000 Miles, Matching Numbers, 2 Build Sheets
We took this incredible Boss 429 in on trade toward a Ford GT from
a serious Mustang collector. We commissioned a 5 hour inspection by
noted Boss 429 expert Mick McKinnon of Vintage Snake Restoration,
who believes the 32,000 miles to be original given the condition of
the car, including the 100% original interior, original glass,
original body panels, rolled fender lips, etc. This 1969 Ford
Mustang BOSS 429 is KK #1791 and was the 590th unit produced.
Included with this Boss 429 are 2 original build sheets, original
window sticker, Marti Report and a stack of maintenance, service
and parts receipts detailing mechanical work including an engine
and transmission rebuild, as well as disassembly and a professional
repaint in 2005. Stock parts that come with car include the
original shifter, carburetor, smog equipment, and distributor.
Those parts have been replaced to maximize drivability and
This Boss 429 is listed in the Boss 429 Mustang World Registry and
would be a wonderful addition to any serious collection.
Only offered for two years, 1969 (859 built) and 1970 (499 built),
the Mustang BOSS 429 represents the extreme lengths taken by Ford
to remain competitive in NASCAR stock car competition. Because the
BOSS 429 twisted HEMI engine was several inches too wide to fit
between the Mustang's stock shock towers, Ford sent partially
constructed Mustangs from its Dearborn plant to Brighton, MI,
subcontractor Kar Kraft for BOSS 429 installation. The completed
street models homologated the engine for use in NASCAR competition
(ironically, where they competed in Torino-bodied race cars).
