Of all the Mustangs out there, the rarest of them are the Boss 429 cars. Ford didn’t make that many of them, and they command massive prices at auction of $300,000 or more frequently. For the person out there wanting a car that looks like a Boss 429 of their own but who doesn’t want to spend what the real deal costs, there is another option for getting one.
A website called “The Boss is Back” operated by Red’s Restorations & Customers has announced that they are building reproductions of the 1969 Boss 429 Mustang. The prototype they have built is built on a 1969 Pro touring Mustang Fastback shell. Into that shell, they crammed a Jon Kasse Racing 520 cubic-inch V8 engine that has stacked EFI and Boss 429 heads. The engine makes a minimum of 750 horsepower on pump gas. Torque numbers are a mystery.
The power goes to the road via a Tremec 6-speed Magnum manual shift transmission. Suspension components include TCI adjustable coil-overs front and rear along with a front sway bar and 4-link in the rear. The rear axle is a Ford 9-inch with 3:73 gears. The car has Wilwood disc brakes all around with 12-inch rotors for stopping power.
The wheels are 17-inch aluminum Magnum 500 units that are 8 inches wide in the front and 9 inches wide in the rear. The interior is completely custom with vintage air, navigation, and Sirius satellite radio as an option. As for pricing, the car’s are completely custom, and as such, you have to submit a quote. We’d assume they are very expensive but cheaper than a real Boss 429. This perfect 1969 Boss 429 went for over $300,000.
