Here at RK Motors Charlotte we've made a tradition out of showcasing some of the finest muscle cars in the world. But some of those classics are so rare that they're almost impossible to find. Take Ford's legendary Mustang Boss 429, for example. The last world-class, real-deal Boss 429 we came across was a 1969 Candyapple Red car which rolled out of our showroom almost FIVE years ago. So, it's only natural that, when we found this fully documented, numbers-matching Wimbledon White stunner, we simply couldn't wait to share it with you! Fresh out of a nut-and-bolt concours restoration, and packing an original 429/4-speed drivetrain, this fully documented Boss, KK 429 NASCAR 1746, provides one serious investor the best of both worlds: ownership and enjoyment of one of Detroit's ultimate muscle cars, and solid equity in a highly exclusive collector car!

HISTORY

The origin of Ford's fabled 'Boss 9' is classically simple. The folks in Dearborn needed to win NASCAR races. To win NASCAR races, they had to develop an engine that could keep up with Chrysler's mighty Hemi. Problem was, NASCAR had homologation rules. So, Ford needed to peddle that monster powerplant in something that prowled American streets. While the red-hot Mustang was a natural fit, its new, Ford 385-derived engine was not. All Boss 429s, as they would come to be known, were fitted with rear sway bars, relocated batteries, modified engine bays and manually operated hood scoops at the Rouge assembly plant. Then, in a bit of historic serendipity, they were shipped directly to Kar Kraft to be hand finished by the same team that built LeMans-winning GT40s. The result was a 2-year production run that, in 1969, created exactly 859 coupes which, conservatively rated at 375 horsepower, topped out at 175 MPH!

BODYWORK/TRIM

If nothing else, this impressive pony is rolling proof that you should never judge a book by its cover. Or, for our more logic-minded readers: everything happens for a reason. The simple pigment you see in our high resolution photography reflects a correct shade of Wimbledon White. And that correct shade of Wimbledon White comes courtesy of old school single-stage paint. Why, you ask, is a $350K classic finished in such elementary digs? Because the owner of this killer coupe spent the better part of 13 years returning the car to exactly the state it was originally sold in. Actually, come to think of it, “13 years” is a bit misleading, as the car's nut-and-bolt concours restoration really began in the 1990s under the stewardship of a previous owner. When the present owner purchased the project, circa 2003, he inherited a car that was 95% original and decided to focus much of his time on finding missing NOS and date-correct parts. That translates to a numbers-matching Boss 429 that, in addition to featuring many rebuilt and original components, strives to be 100% authentic in both appearance and feel.

That said, we are talking about a restored car, and many steps have been taken to ensure its integrity. For starters, it was completely disassembled, chemically dipped, fully stripped and professionally e-coated. A full suite of date-correct ECS Automotive Concepts glass was ordered to complement a correct spoiler and official FoMoCo lighting. All of the car's chrome and stainless has been professionally restored and professionally polished. And everything is held together by high quality AMK Products hardware.

ENGINE

Lift the sculpted hood and you'll find an original, 429 cubic inch Cobra Jet V8 that's restored and ready to rock and roll thanks to Marion Performance Racing Engines of Marion, Arkansas! While Dearborn brass rated these lethal powerplants at 375 horses for the sake of appeasing whiny insurance agents, the fact that the mills actually made over 500 horsepower was one of Detroit's worst kept secrets. That's because Ford unapologetically developed their exclusive 'nine' to be a homologation piece for MoPar-hunting NASCAR blocks of the same ilk. At full throttle, the flapper valve opens, drawing cool oxygen through a correctly painted ram air induction system in to an original Holley carburetor, restored by Pony Carburetors. Below that juice box, correct 'crescent' heads seat a correct aluminum intake between massive aluminum valve covers. At the front of that intake, an original points distributor sequences spark between a marked coil and pliable Autolite Radio Resistance cables. A correct hydraulic cam breathes through cast iron exhaust manifolds, which conduct an octane-fueled symphony through factory-spec Scott Fuller pipes. In front of those tubes, traditional V-belts spin correct power steering and a correctly marked alternator beneath factory smog equipment and a Ford Blue water pump. Speaking of water, a marked, original radiator cycles coolant through reproduction Autolite hoses and old school screw clamps. As you can see from our photos, the Ford Blue beast is homed in a solid engine bay that's finished in a smooth coat of Satin Black paint. And details are concours-level, from the car's original starter and vivid Autolite voltage regulator to its correct fuel pump and fresh ECS decals.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Take a peek under this Ford and you'll find an exceptionally clean chassis that's framed in correctly oversprayed floors. At the center of those floors, an original Toploader 4-speed spins a tagged Dead Nuts On driveshaft, which is threaded to a DSD-restored Ford 9-inch. That awesome drivetrain is held off the ground by a marked and rebuilt Competition Suspension that, thanks to DSD Restorations, is correct all the way down to its original KKX spindles and reproduction KKX shocks. At the ends of that suspension, correct power steering combines with correct power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide competent track capability. The aforementioned Scott Fuller pipes funnel roasted dinosaurs through an H-shaped crossover, small resonators and a transverse muffler. And at the sides of those anodized tubes, original Magnum 500s twist reproduction F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around galloping horse center caps.

INTERIOR

Take a look inside this Boss and you'll find a correct Clarion Knit vinyl interior that shows little to no weathering. Correct bench and hi-back bucket seats are in excellent shape, no doubt receiving some professional upholstery work. In front of those seats, a dual-cowl dash hangs factory telemetry, professionally restored by The Tachman, above a correct Philco radio. Below the dash, a correct console founds a chrome shifter on fresh carpet and fresh sound deadening material. Sound deadening material also serves as the foundation for a tight headliner that's accented by tagged sun visors. At the sides of the car, sculpted door panels center bright wood applique behind Python seatbelts. In front of the driver, a professionally restored Rim Blow Steering Wheel laps stainless-trimmed foot pedals. And behind the cockpit, a small trunk anchors a correct Space Saver tire opposite a correct reproduction battery.
