The Boss Is Back: The Ford Mustang Boss 429 With 815-HP
Ford announced earlier this year that the blue oval would be teaming up with Classic Restorations to create a few new versions of old school Mustangs. Specifically, the 1969-1970 Mustang Boss 302, the 1969-1970 Mustang Boss 429, and the 1969-1970 Mustang Mach 1. And now, 6 months later, the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 rolled into the 2018 SEMA show.
This is the first new 1969 Ford Boss 429 to be built in 50 years. The car is based on an original Mustang body and thanks to Classic Recreations, has been restored to factory condition. The exterior looks familiar, but under the hood is anything but. The original 7.0-liter V-8 engine has been replaced with a custom-built, fuel-injected 8.4-liter V-8 that produces 815 horsepower. Other noteworthy upgrades include a modern EFI fueling system, new valve train and ECU. See it for yourself, right here.
