BIG BLOCK 429CI POWER, 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES, TUBULAR CONTROL ARMS, SWEET STANG!
Some folks might look at this spectacular 1969 Mustang Boss 429 tribute and think it was nothing but a trailer queen. But checking the specs, you'll realize that not only is it beautiful, but it has been built for combat and will easily humiliate a lot of impressive hardware out on the street.
With Boss 429s rapidly closing in on the quarter-million-dollar mark, it's natural for hobbyists to want to re-create what is arguably the baddest Mustang ever built. This one is finished in luscious Candy Apple Red paint, making it the kind of car that you almost can't resist touching. And yes, finish work was done to show standards and you'd be forgiven for thinking this was nothing but a trailer queen. Gaps are excellent, detailing is exceptional, and that paint, well, the photos just don't do it justice. For the proper Boss look, there's a giant Shaker hood scoop, chin and decklid spoilers, and rear window slats, all painted satin black. This is exactly the kind of car you DON'T mess with when you see it on the street, because you know if they spent this much getting the bodywork right, then there's surely a fortune's worth of performance underneath, too. And you'd be right.
The tribute to the Boss continues with the interior, which features original comfort-weave upholstery on the original high-back buckets, with a sliver of red stitched in for contrast. The fat wooden steering wheel works well with the simulated wood appliques on the dash and door panels, and you know any car with a Hurst cue ball means business. The original gauges monitor the upgraded engine, and there's an AM/FM/cassette stereo from some distant past, but listening to the radio in this car is to totally miss the point. Sharp-eyed viewers will note that the battery has been moved to the trunk just like the real Boss 429, and the trunk floor is completely rust-free. Apparently, this was always a clean car.
Originally powered by a 390, there's now a built 429 FE under the hood, which is actually a better choice for a street car than the deep-breathing Boss unit. Balanced and blueprinted, it's full of the good stuff, yet looks show car sanitary with matching Candy Apple Red paint on the block, tons of chrome, and framed by beautifully finished sheetmetal. The supporting cast is pretty impressive, too, featuring a gorgeous custom stainless steel exhaust system with electric cut-outs, a 4-speed transmission, and a 9-inch full of 3.70 gears with Track-Lok. A custom driveshaft, reinforced subframes, 31-spline axles, and a Lakewood scatter shield ensure safety and durability, while KYB shocks and 4-wheel discs give it impressive agility for such a brute. Custom-built Magnums measure 15x7 up front and 15x8 in back and wear 225/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFG radials.
