Muscle Car Of The Week Video #32: 1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 429
http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek - Back in 1969, Ford was ready
to roll out a new engine to compete in NASCAR - the BOSS 429. This was a
semi-hemispherical headed V8 designed to compete with Dodge's 426 Hemi that
was leading the pack on the NASCAR super speedways. NASCAR rules say that
you need to sell at least 500 copies of a "street" version of any engine
you planned to race, so Ford needed to build a civilian BOSS 429 for the
general public. The interesting part is that Ford interpreted the rule book
and noticed that the engine didn't have to be in the same car raced... so
they could stuff a BOSS 429 into a Mustang rather than the Torinos being
used in NASCAR. The result was a super-bad Mustang with a custom-installed 375
HP NASCAR engine under the hood. From the Brothers Collection.

Today on GEARZ, Stacey takes a look at one of the most incredible engines
that Ford ever built, the boss 429. But instead of leaving you WISHING you
could have one, he shows you where you can actually GET one... the
legendary Jon Kaase. After that he rolls the V8 Interceptor, Cougar back
into the shop and gives you 780 reasons why this car is called the
Interceptor. With all that new-found room under the hood. Stacey stuffs in
a 520ci, 780 horsepower, Boss Nine engine
and a 6speed manual transmission to back it up. If you didn?t think modern
performance parts would fit in a classic muscle car, this show proves they
can! But there's more to it than that, it's the rebirth of Ford's hemi and
finally an answer to all those Ford fans who have wondered what could have
been if the Boss engine had continued. The Boss V8 Interceptor is in the
1969 Boss 429 Mustang
This is the 40th (KK1240) 1969 Boss 429 Mustang made. Also, This is NOT my
car. I saw it at the Turkey Run @ Daytona International Speedway.
