1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback

Boss 429 Fastback has less than 4,600 original miles on its date-code-correct, big block V8.

The new year is almost upon us, and that means only one thing: lots of new Mustang events to place on the calendar. Auctions, competitions, gatherings, if a Mustang is involved, you’ll want to be there.

Case in point: we were looking through the catalog of Barrett-Jackson’s upcoming auction in Scottsdale, Arizona January 12 through 20, 2019, when we happened upon this amazing 1969 Boss 429 Fastback.

This Boss 429 was the 605th of 857 built in 1969, accumulating 4,558 original miles before its concours-quality rotisserie restoration in 2000. Since then, it’s only traveled seven additional miles on its own, moving on and off trailers to various museums and shows.

Under the hood of the Candy Apple Red-over-black Boss 429 is its namesake 429 cu in V8. The entire engine is a matching-numbers, date-code-correct affair which made 375 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque in its day. The 429 is attached to a four-speed manual, was recently resealed, as is said to run as well as it ever did.

Inside the Boss 429, the black vinyl buckets eagerly await you and a friend to sit down, take the wood and chrome steering wheel, and smoke the rear Goodyear Polyglas tires.

The Boss 429 has its original documentation, and several Mustang Club of America awards, including two Grand National and Boss National Gold Awards. We hope whoever pays for the Mustang allows the pony some more play time on the road and drag strip.
