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
