Boss 429 runs a 10 second flat quarter mile pass.
Very healthy Boss 429 runs a 10.01 at 142 mph pass at the Tulsa Raceway
Park in June of 2008 at the Mid America Ford Performance and Shelby meet.
Be sure to watch after the pass for a close up video of how stock the body
and interior are on this car, and how badass of an engine this car is
I was videoing my car and this is what happened. My wife asked me not to
e-mail this video to anyone, so I put it on youtube instead

1969 Boss 429, completely rebuild and in perfect restored condition. Must
Bill Shepherd Mustang 1969 Mustang Boss 429
One of the rarest Mustangs
to have ever been produced, with only 857 being produced, it is very rare
to find one of these cars up for sale in Europe!
In modern terminology, 429 translates to 7 litres of V8 muscle, quite
literally 'shoehorned' into the front of the Boss 429.
Ford contracted Kar Kraft to fit the behemoth engines into these cars,
which required new shock towers being installed, widening the engine
compartment by 2 inches to allow the engine to be placed. Even the battery
had to be moved to the boot/trunk of the car for space and air conditioning
was not an option due to lack of engine bay space. Power steering, however,
was a mandatory option.
The Boss 429 was created solely for homologation purposes so that Ford
could enter the engine into Nascar racing, rules stated that 500 road cars
must be bult to homologate the engine for racing. Although the Mustang did not compete in Nascar,
the Mustang was the chosen
platform to make use of the semi-hemi V8 engine

Fresh from a complete frame-off restoration and packing a properly rebuilt
and restored 429 V8, this '69 Boss 429 gives you the best of both worlds:
owning a rare, investment grade muscle car at a price that allows you to
drive it a bit and enjoy it!
In March of 2003, after almost 35 years of accident free driving and
excellent maintenance this killer Mustang was purchased by a new owner
and subjected to a highly detailed frame off restoration. During that cars
restoration, all of its original panels were stripped to bare metal and
thoroughly worked to ensure a super smooth surface with laser straight
lines. Once the body was fully prepped and displayed excellent fit and
finish, a correct coat of Candyapple Red basecoat/clearcoat was expertly
applied from tip to tail, and buffed to the fantastic shine you see here.
Completed in early 2011, and with only 19 miles of road time since being
rolled out of the paint booth, Boss 429 #1541 is an amazing piece of Mustang legend.
Lift the glossy red hood and you'll find a correct 429 cubic inch warranty
replacement V8 that's been completely rebuilt, bored .030 over and produces
somewhere north of 500 horsepower. At the top of
the engine bay, the cars original widened shock tower brace hovers over a
correct blue air cleaner which feeds a correct Holley C9AZ-9510-S 4-barrel
carburetor. Below that carburetor, original (to the block) heads hold new
stainless valves and springs below polished Boss 429 valve covers and
chrome Ford Racing breather caps. Below those heads, a NOS Boss T crank
spins balanced billet Crower rods and forged Ross Racing stock compression
pistons; and a .580 lift cam pushes traditional solid lifters. Fire is
provided by a correct Autolite coil which sends fire to an Accel points
distributor and Moroso Ultra Race wires. And cooling is provided by the
cars original oil cooler and radiator which is complete with fresh Autolite
hoses and correct tower clamps.
Behind the big 429, the cars original close ratio Top Loader 4-speed is
still hooked to its original flywheel and bell housing. At the back of that
transmission, an original driveshaft spins an original Ford 9 inch
Traction-Lok rear end that is complete with asphalt shredding 3.90 gears
and an original metal maintenance tag. At the front of the car, a rebuilt
double A-arm coil spring suspension holds a rebuilt factory optioned power
steering system between aftermarket spindles which hang SSBC vented rotors
and SSBC calipers. At the back of the car, a rebuilt leaf spring suspension
holds correct drum brakes at the edges of a factory equipped rear sway bar
and a new stainless fuel tank. And in the middle of the car, subframe
connectors seamlessly parallel a factory replacement Exhaust system that's complete with an H-pipe,
correct resonators and a correct transversely mounted muffler. Power is put
to the pavement by great looking 15 inch chrome Magnum 500 wheels that are
wrapped in fresh 215/60 front and 255/60 rear BF Goodrich Radial T/As.
Take a look inside this Boss 429 and you'll find a completely restored
correct Clarion Knit vinyl interior with hi-back bucket seats, fully
rebuilt gauges and bright re-chromed knobs. The rebuilt and re-covered
black Clarion knit buckets are in spectacular shape both front and back,
and there is no evidence of sun damage or rot on the fresh dual cowl dash
pad. Inside that dash, excellent looking wood applique trims clear gauges,
a functioning passenger's side clock and a correct Philco AM radio; and
below the dash, a full length center console holds a traditional chrome
Hurst shifter in front of a chrome lighter and deep console. At the sides
of the car, sculpted door panels are decorated with more wood trim and
re-chromed knobs, and in front of the driver, the cars original factory
optioned Rim Blow deluxe steering wheel has been restored to perfectly
match the wood trim on the dash and console.
Documented, fully sorted and one of the most sinister Mustangs we've ever had, it drives
and sounds every bit as good as it looks! Call, click or visit

Before you start ranting about that "this is not top gear!" I want to
inform that Top Gear has been broadcasted for a long time, and not always
with the same presenters, this one is from an episode made in 1989!
Hope you enjoy it!
