1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback at Mecums

The Mustang 429 Boss is an iconic and greatly treasured muscle car. KK no. 1480, unrestored with 14,386 miles will cross the block May 15-20.

Ground-pounding engine, limited production, and high dollar resale, the 1969 Boss 429 is also one of the best looking muscle cars on the planet.
The car has a following like a celebrity, with the crowd pushing forward when a clean looking Boss 429 rumbles up.
The heart of the Boss 429 is the engine. With a cult following of it's own, of the 859 Boss 429s built for 1969, only 279 had the S-code engine. The original S-code version of the 429 engine, with its magnesium valve covers, specially prepared crankshaft, forged pistons, and race-ready internal components, exemplifies the purpose by Ford Motor Company engineers to create an engine worthy of competing on the NASCAR circuit. $423,500.
