Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback 1969 – USA

Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback to wersja zbudowana do rywalizacji wyścigowej w NASCAR. Najbardziej poszukiwane wśród tych unikatowych samochodów to te wyposażone w oryginalny silnik S-code z magnezowymi pokrywami zaworów i absolutnym brakiem rozwiązań proekologicznych, w rezultacie dysponujące największą mocą i momentem obrotowym. Ten prezentowany uchodzi za ostatni z 279 wyprodukowanych S-code. Zadziwiający jest jego stan zachowania – jedyne 14386 mil przebiegu, w pełni oryginalny lakier i wnętrze, a nawet fabryczne opony. W tak rzadkim i tak mocnym samochodzie to rzecz niebywała, która z pewnością wpłynie na cenę. Samochód będzie gwiazdą nadchodzącej aukcji Mecum i nie trudno sobie wyobrazić, że prognozowana cena 500 – 550 tys. USD może być jeszcze przebita.

Seldom do you find a 47 year-old car that has only changed hands three times. But that’s the case with this 1969 Boss 429, KK1480, first delivered to its original owner from Tennessee’s Bob Bales Ford in 1969 and later to a collector in Mississippi, who maintained the original paint, original interior Mustang muscle car in a climate-controlled environment. Unrestored with 14,386 miles and still riding on its factory-supplied Goodyear Polyglas tires, the Black Jade Boss 429 has been out of circulation since the Carter administration. In addition to the low mileage and well-preserved factory paint and interior, production information indicates that this Boss 429 could have been the last example to receive the 820-S engine, as installed in the earliest Boss 429s on the Kar Kraft assembly line. The “S-code” powerplant came with a hydraulic camshaft, magnesium valve covers, and heavy-duty connecting rods with 1/2-inch bolts before production switched to the later and more common 820-T engine with mechanical camshaft, aluminum valve covers, and lighter rods. Of the 859 Boss 429s built for 1969, only 279 had the S-code engine. Like all Boss 429 Mustangs, KK1480 was built by Ford to homologate the hemi-head big-block for NASCAR racing. As a top-of-the-line performance car, it is equipped with the street 375 horsepower engine, 4-speed transmission, 3.91:1 Traction-Lok differential in a nodular case rear end, competition suspension with staggered rear shocks, front spoiler, power steering and front disc brakes, 15-inch Magnum 500 wheels with Goodyear F60x15 Polyglas tires and manually-operated functional hood scoop. Because the Boss 429 engine was too wide for the Mustang engine compartment, Ford enlisted its in-house performance shop, Kar Kraft, for the engine installation, which included modified shock towers. With only 1,359 produced during the 1969 and 1970 models years, an unrestored original like KK1480 ranks among the most coveted of all muscle cars and is documented with the build sheet, owner’s manual and owner’s card.
