Completed by Ford contractor Kar Kraft on May 15, 1969, it was sold new at Cook Whitehead Ford, Inc., in Panama City, Florida. This
1969 Boss 429 is a rust-free Florida car. With only one repaint in the factory Candy Apple Red, the NASCAR-inspired SportsRoof
remains in mostly factory condition and comes with a Marti Report and Eminger shipping documents.
The engine is currently equipped with an aftermarket K&N air filter, but the original air-cleaner assembly is included with the sale. Of
the five colors offered on the 1969 Boss 429, Candy Apple Red was the brightest and the second most popular with 238 produced out of
the 849 total production. Built to homologate the Hemi-head engine for NASCAR competition, every Boss 429 started its muscle-car
journey at Ford’s Dearborn Assembly Plant before being shipped to Kar Kraft—Ford’s contracted performance facility in Brighton,
Michigan—with modified shock towers to allow the installation of the wide Boss 429 powerplant.
Kar Kraft’s mini assembly line also installed the manually operated hood scoop, relocated the battery to the trunk and bolted on 15-
inch Magnum 500 wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires. From the factory, the Boss 429 was the ultimate Mustang muscle car. With 375
HP on tap, the Boss drivetrain consisted of a heavy-duty 4-speed and Ford’s tough 9-inch rear end with N-case nodular-iron pumpkin,
31-spline axles and 3.91:1 gears in a Traction-Lok differential. The front shock towers received extra bracing to handle the loads from
the F60x15 tires, and the Competition Suspension added staggered rear shocks to control wheel hop during hard launches.
Compared to other muscle cars of the late 1960s, the Boss 429 was tame in appearance, identified only by its wide hood
scoop, chin spoiler and small “Boss 429” decals on the front fenders. Every Boss 429 received a unique decal on the driver’s
door with its “KK NASCAR 429” build number.
Included with the sale are two shipping invoices, the Marti Report that documents the car's status as an authentic Boss 429.
