About This 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429
Posted: 26 May 2003
$74k is a lot of money for a Ford Mustang, even as rare as this is. I just don't see this car fetching much more that for a while. Perhaps there is some psychological barrier that Fords hit that keep them from getting crazy money ... I don't know. These cars up 11% last year. Fantastic documentation. Painted with the correct overspray! Odd, it looks like there is a paint-run by the ID tag. ~~~ This car is money. Ask anyone that sees it and they will tell you that it's an expensive machine. The 429 emblem screems 'MUSCLE CAR!' Color is so period - brings back memories.

Important to note- this fine car looks exactly as featured on pages 128 to 131 of The Complete Book of Mustang published in 1989, Library of Congress #88-63580. The factory heavily rated the Boss 429 at 375 horsepower @ 5200 rpm and 450 foot lbs of torque @ 3400 rpm. The engine has all the correct equipment including smog, 735 cfm carberator, steel crankshaft, solid cam, huge aluminum heads and intake manifold. Chassis VIN is 0F02Z110422, and the engine stamping is 110423 which is believed to be the original engine. According to Bob Perkins and Ed Meyer, two of the most knowledable people on these cars, Kar Kraft during assembly had the engines lined up separately from the cars and it wasn't unusual to have the engine ID off a digit from the VIN # of the car. Since these cars came with the Drag Pack option this car has the original oil cooler and relocated front horns. Even the alternator bracket and lift hooks are painted a lighter shade of blue to correctly duplicate the factory markings.
This is one of the most desirable muscle cars ever produced and fully restored to top MCA show standards for top ford collector Jackey Jones. Restoration began in 1997 by Shelby Parts and Restorations in Green Bay, WI.. They rebuilt the engine to stock specs and bench tested the engine to ensure it ran exceptionally well. The final assembly and detailing was completed in late 2000 by Mike Plott of North Carolina. This means that two of the top Shelby and Boss Mustang restoration facilities did the work on this car.
The underside of the car is correctly detailed, painted and oversprayed in all the right places. Everything has been rebuilt or replaced and appears in as new condition. The overall condition of the car is excellent and the laser straight Grabber Blue paint is nearly flawless. There are very slight joining marks near the welds on the right B pillar where the factory built up this area knowing that the enormous torque would twist the body in this area causing these to appear. These are very slight and can only be seen while looking closely at an angle. This car has approximately 80 break in miles and since it was restored to show standards has not been driven much. It is ready to show or drive and it very striking in appearance to say the least. One other note is that most of the 70 Boss 429 cars came with standard door panels even though they had deluxed seats. This car is one of the very few 70 cars that actually got the deluxed Mach 1 door panels with the lights and carpeted bottom which really dresses up the interior. The headlights also have the correct Ford headlights for show purposes with the oval script on them. This is a tremendous example of a very collectable Boss 429. This car has fantastic upside potential of increased value in the next couple of years. Keep in mind that these cars have significant race production history and given the circumstance that Ford and Kar Kraft only produced 1300 over the 1 1/2 period between 1969 and 1970 makes them very rare.
The extensive photos of the complete car show a correct car to the best of efforts of top Boss 429 Mustang people in the country.
