Thanks to all! Yes,the Boss got raced,in 69 and 70 there were muscle cars everywhere.What a great time! Thanks to my Dad,God rest his soul,I was able to purchase my dream car with him cosigning the papers.I was 18 at the time so the Boss was a daily driver for almost 2 years,even got in the snow once before I wised up.We raced almost every night in the summer and fortunatly never got caught and no one had any mishaps! I LEARNED MY LESSONS AND DO NOT RECOMMEND STREET RACING OF ANY KIND. But times were different then.The best official 1/4 mi times at the track with borrowed slicks was 12.48 at 116 mph.The way its set up now,11 to 1 comp,solid roller cam,titanium valves,dual 715 Holleys,stainless steel headers, 3in exhaust ,and a 4.11 traction loc would most likely put it in the low 10's if I could get it to hook up! The dyno said 600hp with matching torque.All I can say is its a blast to drive .I had parked it for over 30 years and my son Aaron and I compleatly redid the car inside and out using all of the original parts except for a few 21st century upgrades,4 wheel Baer brakes,17in billet magnums,total control power rack and pinion and a few other goodies.Stock is cool,was cool when I had it new,but this is definatly more fun! Ford should have done it this way! :hy:ford4v429 said:Wow...a original owner boss429. thats gotta be a last of its kind.
Some purists would frown at the wheels/radiator/tower braces- I'm glad to see them, says you actually drive this gem
any interesting stories about it? did you race it way back when? how many miles? are headgaskets as bad a problem as Ive heard on some sites? I'd better quit...just never imagined a one owner boss still existed, let alone in beautifully driveable shape!
thanks for sharing your pics and any info!
