This Boss 429 is a well-documented example of an iconic muscle car, and the Deluxe Marti Report states it was assembled at Ford’s Dearborn, Michigan plant on March 18, 1969, and originally sold by Stenger’s Ford of Dayton, Ohio on May 9, 1969.
NASCAR homologation rules mandated that Ford manufacture the Boss 429ci V8 engine for passenger cars. Ford contracted Kar Kraft to customize the Mustang engine bay to house the larger engine and make the necessary suspension changes for the front-end heavy pony car. To offset the weight, the battery was mounted in the trunk.
Ford produced 859 Boss 429 Mustangs in 1969 and this example was assigned Kar-Kraft No. 1551.
This example is finished in Wimbledon White and received a refreshed restoration by Randy Roberts in 2006. It was optioned with the Visibility Group package.
The restoration was conducted by Bob Perkins and is documented with restoration receipts and repairs. This award-winning Boss 429 finished first at the West Coast Concours and was featured at the Pigeon Forge Auto Museum.
The Deluxe Interior has Black Carrion vinyl front hi-back bucket seats split by a woodgrain center console that houses the manual transmission shifter. It has matching black carpets, floor mats, and door panels. The woodgrain dash houses an AM radio, speedometer, tachometer, and clock.
Under the hood is a 429/375 V8 4V engine paired with a close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission and a 3.91 Traction-Lok differential. It features a competition suspension, power front disc brakes, power steering and rides on Magnum 500 wheels with Goodyear raised white letter tires.
The sale includes a Deluxe Marti Report, copies of the Eminger Report, and restoration receipts and photographs.
