Sounds like an interesting motor Andrew. There were a few variants of the 429 made and I'm expecting you don't have a genuine Boss engine as they were very rare indeed and came out in a few select Mustangs and maybe a few Mercury Cougars and Ford Torino's. The standard 429 came out in a number of other larger cars and trucks as well and there are few performance models such as the cobra jet and super cobra jet engines in the Mustang , Torino and Couger lines as well. Give me some numbers off the engine and I may be able to help with what you have. If there is a small aluminium tag attached under the ignition coil bolt then that is a help or even a white sticker on the front of the rocker cover. Perhaps the casting numbers off the cylinder head will help as well.
Depending on what type of car you like then in the Mustang line the 71 to 73 will take that engine with out any problems and the earlier 68 to 70 I think will fit them though it is a bit of a squeeze and there maybe a few modifactions to carry out.I think it is similar with the Torino and Cougers from about 70 to 73 shouldn't be too difficult to pop in.
Be great to find out what you have . If it is a genuine Boss engine then it is an extremely rare engine in the 429 configuration and just in case check to see if the heads are large in appearence and made of aluminium but I'm pretty doubtful that this will be the case.
