Classic Car | Boss 429 Mustang (1969)
You will know you're getting some sick power when they need to affect the body of the Mustang just to support your freakishly large engine. How could you not wish to roll through windows and hear that sucker as you had been cruising around? (Which will be a great idea since, because of the scale the engine, they couldn't slot in any air conditioning. )
The Boss 429 engine was derived coming from the Ford 385 engine. It used four-bolt mains, a forged steel crank and forged steel connecting rods. The engine featured aluminum cylinder heads, having a modified Hemi type combustion chamber which Ford called crescent. These heads used the dry-deck method, meaning no head gaskets were used. Each cylinder, oil passage and water passage had a private O ring style seal to seal it tight. The Boss 429 engine used one Holley four barrel carburetor rated at 735 CFM mounted with an aluminum intake manifold that flowed well to its time. 1969 cars featured a hydraulic lifter camshaft while 1970 models got a mechanical lifter camshaft together with an improved dual exhaust system though rated power output stayed a similar.
This 1969 BOSS 429 is a real survivor being one among only 859 Boss 429's produced. Captivating inside the factory Candy Apple Red the paint is bright and predominantly clear with areas which reveal its original character seen by the different marks, minor topical scratches and natural patina. One's body panels, doors and trunk lid have good fitment with typical gap space to the era and line up well. The chrome and metal surfaces are actually in good original condition using the bumpers displaying minimal deterioration. All the trim pieces are original and therefore are damage free. It's the factory correct raised white lettered Goodyear Polyglas tires on Magnum 500 Wheels, that have excellent chrome. Upon the hoist, the undercarriage is reflective in an original never restored car, however, as could be seen inside the pictures, this the first is exceptionally clean and impressive. Lifting the hood you are able to appreciate how the massive S Code 429 cu. in. engine needed to be wedged in to suit the engine bay. The interior features factory Black Clarion Knit Vinyl Hi-Back Bucket Seats on black carpet, both of that original and in very nice condition. The steering wheel, console and door panels are original and show average wear to its low mileage and age. Overall, this car is really a truly beautiful survivor and presents a really unique opportunity during which to purchase an extremely desirable, original, fully documented, early production S Code Boss 429.
