It doesn’t get better than this! One of 859 1969 models produced, this restored example is immaculate in every way. A two owner, matching numbers car with all paperwork and known history. Kar Kraft build # KK1810. VIN # 9F02Z195399. Arguably one of the rarest and most collectible Muscle Cars of all time. The origin of the Boss 429 came about as a result of NASCAR. Ford was seeking to develop a Hemi engine that could compete with the famed 426 Hemi from Chrysler in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series (then known as “Grand National Division”). NASCAR’s homologation rules required that at least 500 cars be fitted with this motor and sold to the general public. The Boss 429 engine was derived from the Ford 385 engine. It used four-bolt mains, a forged steel crank and forged steel connecting rods. The engine featured aluminium cylinder heads, with a modified Hemi type combustion chamber which Ford called “crescent”. These heads used the “dry-deck” method, meaning no head gaskets were used. Each cylinder, oil passage and water passage had an individual “O” ring style seal to seal it tight. The Boss 429 engine used a single Holley four barrel carburettor rated at 735 CFM mounted on an aluminium intake manifold that flowed well for its time. The cars were rated very conservatively at 375 hp (280 kW) and 450 lb·ft (610 N·m) of torque. Actual output was well over 500 horsepower (370 kW). Finished in candy apple red over black vinyl, this world class muscle Car represents a blue chip investment. Melbourne car. Phone Jacob on 0421 00 44 99
