Absolutely cool vehicle on today’s menu. Tremendous 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429, one of the most mythical Mustangs of all time. The engine, transmission, rear end and suspension system – selected specifically to do one thing, win races.
On the other hand, you don’t have to be a Mustang fan to agree that the Boss 429 is a “bad ass”. To be honest, this is one of the best classic muscle looks ever designed and produced. This perfect classic is powered by the biggest engine Ford ever put in a Mustang, designed and built to run faster, harder and longer than the Chrysler HEMIs on a NASCAR superspeedway.
It’s the Ford’s 429 cubic-inch, 7.0 liter big-block Boss V8 engine, factory rated at 375 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque. The rulebook said that to make an engine competitive and legal for NASCAR you have to sell some for general public. Ford chose to do that in the Mustang. However the Mustang was not a NASCAR race car, the Torino Talladega was.
