1970 boss 429 clone, heading to New Zealand
« on: April 03, 2011, 12:01:22 am »
Hi

FYI

Just received an email from a guy here in NZ, saying he purchased the Calypso Coral Boss 429 clone, that was on ebay.
It was a nice looking car.

The car is sitting in my garage waiting for the transport to pick up.I will be pretty nervous waiting to hear of safe delivery. It is a long trip from Iowa to NZ, hope none of the transport drivers decide to take it out for a joyride.  I built that car as a tribute to the Boss 429 because we just don't get to see enough real ones anymore.

Damn nice car....look at it several times.  Makes me wish my CC White Interior car would be finished soon....only 2 found out of the 13 made on planet earth with those combinations.

I have just purchased a set of towers and a nice rustfree 69 fastback from Kevins Klassics. I plan on building a painted rolling shell and then selling it so the new owner can finish to his taste.   It is my goal to build high quailty boss clones that can be driven and enjoyed so the all the non-ford guys at the local shows and cruise nights can be blown away by the best mustang ever built because lets face it a real boss 9 is to rare and valuable to be used for stuff like that.

Beautiful work on the clone but I have got to ask. Why would you do such a superb job but put Mach 1 seat covers in?

I built it to my taste I guess,,,since it was a clone I just like the way the red accent stripe goes with the body color.  That is why the next one I am building I will just finish out the body and then let the buyer finish so they can go mild or wild with engine-rear gear-etc.   impossible to build to suit everyone.

Didn't mean for my question to sound critical. There was actually a question behind my comment, that being where do the guys that restore 70 B9's go to get their seats redone. I would like to put some decor group seats in my 70 Sportsroof but I would rather have it done by someone that does them every day as opposed to some local upholstery shop that had never done a set. As far as I am concerned, the stamped out comfortweave repos thats missing the woodgrain buttons are not even an option.

Got word today the mustang arrived in New Zealand safe and sound so I guess overseas shipping is not that big a deal after all.  thanks MMI International Logistics inc.

I do not agree with some people who build a clone of a rare car.
As down the road when this car changes hands many time it could become
an original to the new buyer.
Vin Tags must be on the proper car !!!!
Now that said, my body guard has moved out and left his 1970 Grande/351/auto
behind.
If I were aquire this car that would be cool but ?
But I think I would do a mod to my taste a driver.
Fast Back ! And the VIN will be as is....
Nothing to hide. The car will be as it is a driver and if I was to sell it down the road,
all of what was done to the car will be dissclosed.

Yes, looked at it Friday, nice car!!! I believe the world is too smaller place to pass of any Clone as original, the info is all at our finger tips!! way different than the early days with those 65/6 Shelby's which are very easy to clone!!

Hi

Just had word that a true KK Boss 429 will be here in the next few weeks (NZ) .

I have more info, but cannot release just yet.
I don't think this car will be in the registry, so hang tight  ;)

Hi Russell

All good here, just a little shakey  :-\
Going through a bit of a new phase regarding cars.
I will miss the Boss 429, but I am enjoying my new direction  ;)
I am also looking for another Boss 429, but as a project car. However I see I am not the only one looking for a project car.

Was that your black AAR Cuda for sale? I think I remember you said you had one?
I was looking at that with great interest.

Regards
