When you read the title you might think its just another ordinary rare Boss 429 going to auction but this rare vehicle is one of the first 50 hand-built prototypes. To be more specific its the 38th 1969 Mustang Boss 429 built by Ford and its the very first Candy Apple Red Boss 429 built and sold. This rare example of a Boss 429 will be auctioned off at the Mecum Kansas City Spring 2014 event on April 24-26.
If you are curious about the condition of the vehicle you need not worry as it received a rotisserie restoration back in 2009 courtesy of Randy Roberts of Muscle Car Restorations. Of the first 50 vehicles 15 of them were used as test cars and the others were sold to the public so actually this Boss 429 is the 23rd offered to the public.
