Just finished my Boss 302 race car project and now have some spare time.....i think?
This would be a nice project, if the motor was not blown, and from what I see, we could have that running under its own power for under $10k plus parts (no exhaust or drive shaft etc?). If you wanted to spend another $10-20 plus parts we could make it a very nice driver.
If you want a concourse champion you will need to seek out a real Boss 9 specific expert and expect to spend big.
This could be a very enjoyable car for not a lot on what you pay for it, the above is not a formal offer, I just don't see real expensive stuff to do or missing to get it useable/enjoyable.

Friendly advice, if you are going to purchase this one, please chase the door tag with the owner (as a condition of sale) and the radiator support tag, these two pieces of documentation are critical to this investment.

PM me if you would like to discuss.

According to the Boss 302 Exchange site the KK number for this is KK 1548. I have looked it up in my 2011 Boss Registry book but it has hardly any text with it.

Colour M; Date Received (at Kar Kraft) 3-18-1969; Date shipped (from Kar Kraft) 2-26-1969 (should read 3-26-1969 going by the ones before and after it).

There were only 279 Wimbledon White B9s produced in 69 from a total of 859 B9s.

I have not posted on here for a while. Apologies for my late reply. Does anyone know who bought this Boss 429?

This was  Don Perrys car. A RHD conversion was started and then stopped and it was converted back to LHD.

Note the XY pedal chassis assembly for the conversion in the pictures.

My father knew Don Perry when they both had Phase 3s. Dons Phase 3 also sold around that time by the same auction company.
