Ford Mustang Boss 429, 1969год , 28миль, $324950

The Boss 429, also known as the Boss 9 by enthusiasts, is arguably one of the rarest and most valued muscle cars to date with only 859 made in 1969. The origin of the Boss 429 came about as a result of NASCAR as Ford was seeking to develop a Hemi engine that could compete with the famed 426 Hemi from Chrysler in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series. The Boss 429 engine was derived from the Ford 385 engine and used four-bolt mains, a forged steel crank and forged steel connecting rods. The engine featured aluminum cylinder heads, with a modified Hemi type combustion chamber which Ford called crescent. These heads used the dry-deck method, meaning no head gaskets were used. Each cylinder, oil passage and water passage had an individual O ring style seal to seal it tight. The Boss 429 engine used a single Holley four barrel carburetor rated at 735 CFM mounted on an aluminum intake manifold and an hydraulic lifter camshaft. The battery was repositioned to the trunk and a stiff 3/4 sway bar was added to rear end to improve handling since the car was nose heavy. This was the first Mustang ever fitted with a rear sway bar, and it notably handled much better than other big-block Mustangs of the time, making it a very capable track car. It came fitted with an 8,000rpm tachometer, and AM only radio. In addition, a hole was cut in the hood, and a manually controlled hood scoop was added to these cars. Other features included a front spoiler that was shallower than the Boss 302 spoiler, color keyed dual racing mirrors, and an engine oil cooler. It was also equipped with a 3.91 ratio rear axle with a Traction-Lock limited slip differential. The cars were rated very conservatively at 375 HP and 450 lbft of torque. Actual output over the years was tested and stated to be well over 500 horsepower. The manufacturers and dealers only listed 375 HP because of legal issues and rising insurance costs so customers would be lured into buying these cars without the stiff fees from an ins
