Ford Mustang Boss 429 (1969-1970) The Boss 302 was created to meet Trans Am rules and featured distinctive hockey-stick stripes, while the understated Boss 429 was created to homologate the Boss 429 engine. The Ford Mustang Boss 429 was brought about out of Ford's need to qualify 500 examples of its new racing engine for NASCAR. Ford shoved the big block “428 cubic inch unit, 7.0lt Cobra Jet engine into the Mustang giving it 375hp and a 0-60 mph, in 6.8sec. Never quiet as quick as the Shelby Cobra, they could still smoke the tyres and get to the 1/4 mile in under 14sec. The Boss 429 came with the Mustang's plushest interior decor and an 8000-rpm rev-counter. They were kept reasonably plain outside compared to later models and it came with a hood scoop, front spoiler, and Magnum 500 wheels and simple decals. To give it a bit more of an edge, Ford refused to add either air conditioning or automatic transmission. Given the quality of the car and components, its not surprising that the Mustang Boss 429 was the most expensive non-Shelby Mustang. Part of the extra expense incurred in building the Boss was a reworked front suspension to fit the big semi-hemi 429. This gave the Boss a surprising improved geometry that, with the husky tires, gave the Boss 429 fine handling. . 🛠 @classicrecreations 📷 @drewphillipsphoto 📰 @boostednova ..... .. #somedayclassics#ford#fordgt#mustangboss429#boss429#gt500#fordmustang#mustang#shelby#cobra#shelbymustang#shelbycobra#fordclassic#classiccar#classicamerican#67mustang#shelbygt500#mustangfanclub#69mustang#68mustang#musclecar#americanmuscle#musclekingz#70mustang .
