Erotic Reading

Something in red crossed the block in Scottsdale today.
KK #1327 is 1 of the early built by hand BOSS 429's. It has rare 820-S NASCAR engine stock with special Ford C9AE-A heavy-duty 1/2" bolt rods, forged pistons and steel crank, high nickel HP-429 standard four bolt block with screw in freeze plugs, undamaged C9AE-A original aluminum O-ringed HEMI heads, forged rockers, staggered valvetrain, aluminum high rise Ram Air Holly carburetor intake, unique magnesium valve covers, dual points, power steering and engine oil coolers, KKX unique beefed up lowered and widened competition suspension, staggered rear shocks, front and rear under axle unique sway bar, close ratio 4-speed, 3:91 Trac-Lok nodular rear. All BOSS 429's were built the same except for the very early cars because they are more collectible with more history, as they were unique in having two different drivetrains in them. They were invoiced through Shelby Automotive D.S.O. 89-2000 and went to Kar Kraft with 428 SCJ Drag Pack drivetrains and suspension. Then they were changed to Blue Crescent forward mounted 429 CJ HO drivetrains and suspension. These early 820-S engine cars had 20 things done differently with some KKX and XE only parts. This has its original Special Performance Vehicle ID tag, K.K. sticker, Buck Tag, all body stamped VIN numbers, glovebox warranty papers, Build Sheet, both invoices, Marti Report and all letters from Ford. The body has no damage with Ford correct original sheet metal, chrome, trim, deluxe interior, suspension, exhaust, Carlite glass, TS lights, and correct Autolite, Goodyear and Magnum 500 components. It has rolled fenders, quarters and front valence from the factory. Along with factory tachometer, unique vented trunk-mounted battery, front spoiler, power steering and brakes. There are over 300 unique individual parts and hardware totaling over 800 pieces to complete a '69 Boss 429. This concours restoration was done with its factory seam sealer and sound deadner with correct date codes, color codes, chalk and grease pencil marks, decals, tags and stickers just as if it came off the assembly line. It has 19,980 original miles, original matching numbers drivetrain and was featured on the cover of "Muscle Car Review" magazine. The original owner will be driving this Boss 429 onto the Auction Block. It is an older concours restoration upgraded to today's standards and professionally detailed by Meyers Cars under the supervision of Ed Meyer, SAAC Head Judge.
Hubba hubba.
