Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen had barely landed at Ford in 1968 when he ordered the homologation of the experimental new 429 CI “Semi Hemi” engine for NASCAR. In the process, he created a Mustang muscle car for the ages, the Boss 429. Formerly part of the personal collection of two-time All-Star pitcher John Smiley, this 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 is Kar Kraft build number KK1789. It is one of 859 Boss 429 Mustangs built in 1969 and one of 162 finished in beautiful Black Jade paint. Driven just 35,162 actual miles, it retains its original Kar Kraft-installed 429/375 HP engine, close ratio 4-speed manual transmission and 3.91 Traction Lok rear end. Power steering, power front disc brakes, a ľ inch rear sway bar and chromed Magnum 500 wheels were also standard Boss 429 equipment. A magnificent example of the ultimate Boss Mustang, it is listed in Boss 429 Registry and comes with documentation that includes a Marti Report.
