LARRY'S LEGEND LIVES

Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.

Classic Car Overview

Dearborn s muscle car portfolio took a momentous turn in 1968 when Bunkie Knudsen was hired away from General Motors to be Ford s president. A racing fan intent on besting his former employer, Knudsen sought to match the success of GM s Camaro Z/28 Trans Am race car. Designer Larry Shinoda was charged with engineering a Mustang with a race-prepared small-block motor. The resulting Boss 302 became one of the fastest Mustangs ever built, and paved the way for one further model authorized from the top, the Boss 429.Also interested in NASCAR, Knudsen approved the development of a new semi-hemi 429 cid big block officially quoted at 375 hp, though capable of far more.

The Boss 429 was standard equipped with power steering and brakes, a Traction-Lock rear axle with a 3.91 final ratio, and manual transmission only, while amenities like the D cor Group interior and a wood-trimmed dashboard were also included.Just 1,358 examples of the Boss 429 were produced, all in 1969. This included 499 late-production examples officially slated for 1970. To this day, the awesome Boss 9 remains one of Ford s most powerful models ever produced, and a legend am
