Ford campaigned the mighty Boss 429 in 1969 and 1970 fastbacks that were hand modified to accept the huge Hemi headed engine. In 1971 they made the engine bay large enough to accommodate the shotgun V8 without modification, but discontinued the race program and built the Boss 351 and the 429 Super Cobra Jet instead. This car started life as a factory built Boss 351 but is now powered by a custom built Boss 429 Making over 600hp.
1F02R166633 started life as a silver and black Boss 351 sold in San Antonio, Texas in April of 1971. Apparently it stayed in Texas and lead a typical Boss 351 existence. It was purchased in Texas as a project and moved to Arizona where the restorer purchased it as a “car in box” in 2015. Most of the hard to find Boss parts were long gone, but it did have the original 31 spline nodular rear-end with staggered shocks and the original V.I.N. stamped engine block. He always wanted to build a 1971 Boss 429 and this was the perfect platform. His intent was to make the car look like it would have if Ford had actually continued the Boss 429 project from the outside, but to add enough modern upgrades to make the car more drivable. Currently showing 1,431 miles, this beast is ready to hit the road.

Ford is bringing back its heralded Mustang Mach I, and plans to do so this spring, which apparently means between now and the first day of summer, which this year is June 20. Note: This is the Mustang Mach I, not the Mach E, so it’s a high-performance sports coupe, not a utility vehicle, and […]
You know that Fox-body Mustangs are hitting it when hoon-meister Ken Block looks into turning one into a wildly original custom gymkhana car concept. Ford was looking ahead when it introduced in 1984 a different kind of performance Mustang, powered by a turbo/intercooled 4-cylinder engine. The Mustang SVO was immediately identifiable by its double-decker rear […]
“This is how we World Premier during quarantine!” Ken Block says. “Three guys locked down in different parts of the country, using video chat to give you the FIRST LOOK at what might be the very next ‘Hoonicorn’ project! “Check it out as I chat with Ash Thorp (Hollywood graphic artist and designer of the […]
Sometimes collector cars are bought simply because of their rarity and value. But sometimes they are bought because of their story. For example, Jay Leno says he doesn’t buy cars, he buys stories. The Pick of the Day is a car with a story. The car is a 1978 Ford Mustang II, certainly not widely […]
With a 1967 Ford Mustang 390 GT leading the way and selling for £63,250 ($79,320), England’s H&H Classics reports that its April 29 online auction posted £600,000 ($752,500) in revenue with a 70 percent sell-through rate. “The sale attracted some 387 online bidders with log-ins from as far afield as California and New Zealand,” the […]
Maybe we need the police to investigate this one because the Pick of the Day is an intriguing offer but the advertisement on ClassicCars.com doesn’t answer all of our questions. The car is an unusually all-black 1989 Ford Mustang with dog-dish hubcaps and what appears to be a lowered stance. That would make sense since […]
Gale Halderman, the original designer of the Ford Mustang, died April 29 near Dayton, Ohio. Halderman has suffered from liver cancer, according to his family. He was 87. His iconic Mustang design sold more than 8 million units, inspired 6 model generations of design and has been continuously built for more than 50 years. Jimmy […]
On the 56th anniversary of its launch, Ford announced a pair of global honors for its Mustang: world’s best-selling sports car for all of 2019 as well as its fifth consecutive year as best-selling sports coupe.

To celebrate the sale of the first million Mustangs, Ford did a special Sprint package in the spring of 1966. The package provided upgraded equipment for Mustangs with 6-cylinder engines, and proved successful enough that for 1968, a Sprint “Package B” option was available with a V8 engine. The Pick of the Day is a […]
If you bought a Ford Mustang Mach 1 back in 1969, you spent around $3,125 for a souped-up pony car powered by a 351cid carbureted V8 engine that pumped out 250 horsepower. Or for another $26, you could opt for a four-barrel intake rated at 290. Or, for $357, you could equip your Mach 1 […]
