In 1969 Ford had to deal with one Mopar HEMI engine start in the NASCAR racing series. As is well known, this is an engine from the competition from Chrysler, and so it was decided to give the Mustang a fat one 7 liter V8 to donate to one Homologation vehicle to create for the road, so that you could start in NASCAR with your own engine. This homologation model was Boss 429 christened, and is one of the most legendary ponycars on the market today. Of course, such a vehicle has a large fan base, which is why it should find a new owner at a high price. It is currently available for purchase from Prestige Imports in Miami, Florida. And that for an astronomical sum of 469.950 US Dollars. This makes the Mustang more expensive than many new super sports cars from Ferrari, McLaren or Lamborghini. For that you get a perfectly restored one Restomodwhich has only 889 miles on the odometer.
Classic in super sports garb.
The company Classic Recreations did their best to turn the classic Mustang into a vehicle that makes the hearts of US car fans beat faster even in the modern automotive era. By the way, the car was on the SEMA 2018 as a turnkey solution. In order to bring the significantly increased performance safely onto the road, both Chassis and brakes of the Mustang significantly modified.
Among other things, it became a Multilink rear axle installed, and the Bremsanlage comes from Willwood, and has ventilated disc brakes all around. For an even sportier look 18 inch custom rims Mounted with a glossy black look in a sporty double-spoke design. Otherwise, the Mustang Boss 429 did not undergo any great external modifications, and the classic design was completely retained. Believe it or not, Classic Recreations has secured a license to revive some of the most popular models in Mustang history.
This Mustang Boss 429 is just one example of a classic Mustang that will soon be available as a Continuation Cars to be brought back to life.
