In the hierarchy of classic Mustangs, the Boss 429 sits at the top. These cars are the most desirable and tend to bring the highest prices of any vintage Mustangs. A perfect example is this 1969 Boss 429 that’s on eBay right now. The car has only about 24 hours to go, and as of writing has been bid up to $177,900, and the reserve is still not met. High-end fully restored Boss 429 cars can bring well into the six-figure range.
A perfect example is this gorgeous maroon 1969 Boss 429 that was on sale for over $300,000. This car for sale on eBay is not restored, its an original Boss 429 is white with body-color mirrors and black interior. The seller offers very little in the way of details on the car. What he does say is that it has the Boss 429 V-8 engine under the hood backed with a four-speed manual transmission. The seller says that the vehicle was purchased from the original owner in 1981, driven 30 miles home and parked in the garage where it sits today and hasn’t been driven since the 80s.
The old Polyglass tires still hold air, and the original white paint is shiny. Looking at the inside of the car shows that it’s completely filthy, but looks to be in excellent condition. That could all change the first time someone sits in the seats. As far as options go, the car has the functional front spoiler, trunk-mounted battery, visibility group, center console, power front disc brakes, power steering, and deluxe interior decor group.
The car also has deluxe seatbelts and warning lights along with the competition suspension option. The transmission is a four-speed close-ratio unit. Some major mysteries about this card include if the engine and transmission are numbers matching and if the car runs and drives. If the car hasn’t been driven since the 80s, we rather doubt it will run and drive without a rebuild.
