This 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 will be offered by Auctions America on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at its Santa Monica Collector Car Auction. According to its Deluxe Marti Report, this Boss 429 was assigned KK 429 NASCAR production number 2029, it is further accompanied by three original build sheets. It is an extremely exciting car that has recently been completed after going through a three-year professional chassis-up rotisserie restoration with attention paid to correct factory chalk markings and other meticulous details.
This Boss 429 is believed to be a three-owner car and conveyed as being “one of the nicest restored Boss 429’s.” It has been looked by the detail-oriented restorers who confirm the sheetmetal, front fender numbers, rear end, transmission, plus other aspects matching the three original build sheets. The fits and finishes are superb throughout, including the undercarriage. The approximate 35,000 miles are actual to the car, which is also backed by a Marti window sticker copy and restoration receipts.
The legendary Boss 429 V-8 engine was recently dyno-tested at 471.7 horsepower and 460 foot-pounds of torque. According to the Marti Report, KK 2029 was sold new on August 25, 1969 at Nelson Ford Company in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, finished in Candyapple Red over Black Clarion Knit/Vinyl bucket seats, and equipped with 3.91:1 Traction-Lok rear axle and four-speed manual transmission, Visibility Group, power steering, console, power front disc brakes, Philco AM radio, Interior Decor Group, Deluxe belts, color-keyed racing mirrors with driver’s side remote and Competition Suspension, for the sum of $4965.01 new.
The popular SportsRoof design is perfectly highlighted with styled steel wheels fitted with Goodyear Polyglas GT tires. Other interior features include a Rim-Blow steering wheel and woodgrain trim on the dash fascia, center console and door panels. The spare tire and jack are found in the trunk with the proper covers and liners; the engine compartment also displays this duteous attention to detail.
With a base price of $4,087, the Boss 429 was the priciest non-Shelby Mustang to date, with limited production of just 859 units for 1969. This may be one of the finest examples available and is most worthy of consideration. The car is now estimated to bring $250,000 – $275,000.
