Say "hello" to the Boss of Bosses. Built for the track, the Boss 429 was born to tear up the streets. And with its whopping 429 V-8 engine, that's exactly what it did. Now, it's set to do the same to your collection. This precision-engineered replica has it all: distinctive grille and hood scoop, detailed undercarriage, fully instrumented dash, and the full monty of working features--doors that open and close, functional suspension, and steering and road wheels that turn. Big, bad, beautiful--Boss!
It was the king of the big blocks--The 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429. The monster engine was originally designed for the racing circuits. Ford Motor Company first produced the car in 1969, each car being hand-assembled. From January through July 1969, a total of just 859 were produced. In 1970, you could have taken delivery of a brand-new 1970 Boss 429 for under $6,000. Today, the sky's the limit for these coveted and rare beauties. It's no wonder this car was assembled with such great pride by the people producing it--and who must have realized they were producing a run of exotic, sequentially numbered Fords that would one day become a great American classic.
