Recently sold at auction, this pristine 1969 Boss 429 Mustang went for $289,000. Here is a little history of this car…..
Don Davis’ Wimbledon White Boss 429 was delivered in Denver, Colorado, in 1969, equipped with power steering, power front disc brakes, a Philco radio, a Hurst shifter, and factory competition suspension. Reportedly intended to be used on the NHRA Super Stock drag racing circuit, the project was abandoned shortly thereafter due to NHRA rule changes, and the Boss went into storage for over a decade.
It was discovered years later, its original block sourced and re-installed, and the car lovingly restored to, frankly, better than it would have been when new. It speaks highly of the effort that the car had been restored, to ensure greatness it was sent to Bob Perkins, widely recognized as the master of Boss 429 restorations, who went over the Boss from stem to stern until it was absolutely correct, down to the tiniest of details. All original tags, stampings, and markings “from the factory” are present throughout and in their correct locations. Under the body and under the hood are spectacular and show virtually no wear, and all of the correct decals expected by Boss 429 experts are present.
Due to having been stored from new until its restoration, and then used as a pampered show car ever since, this Boss 429 really is “new.” The 97 miles, yes, 97 miles, on the odometer are verified accurate and original, making this the lowest-mileage Boss 429 to survive today.
