This is a very rare Boss 9 because it is one of the first 275 built which makes it an S code, says the private seller from Archbald, Pennsylvania. The S code engines had magnesium valve covers and heavier rods and internals. The car is one of 69 Wimbeldon white S codes ever made, according to the Marti Report. Ford produced 859 Boss 429s in 1969—the first of a two year model run. Ford subcontracted the work of building the Boss 429 to Kar Kraft, an aftermarket car builder in the Detroit area. They had the difficult job of fitting the massive 429 big block underneath the hood of a Mustang. The 1969 Boss 429 Semi Hemi enginetask involved having to widen the space between the shock towers and move the front suspension mounts in order to make room for the engine. Although Ford rated the Semi Hemi engine at 375 horsepower it was pretty much assured that it was really around 500 horsepower. It was a handfull to handle on the road but in a straight line it just couldn’t be beat. With the right setup it would do 10 second quarter-miles pretty consistently.
