I hope they are going to put the lower fender braces and inner fender splash shields on the car.

The pan looks to be deepened to me.

Has the correct bullnose front, just taller in the sump.

To be honest, no car is perfect, and even when they get as close as possible, it usually isn't the first time out of the stable. Some of the nicest cars I have seen were a byproduct on continual improvement.

Everything noted here is easily remedied.

I Agree. Not many people can say their car is perfect in everyway. And if they did I am sure somebody could find something wrong.

Considering that it is believed to have started its resto process looking like this, it's a fine looking machine these days!

This Boss just sold at Mecum Indy 2013 for $225,000. I wonder if it did sell as that seems like an odd number in that I thought Mecum posted sales results including the buying fees paid by the purchaser?

I saw it in Florida at a local car car show at Fantasy of Flight in April. A very nice car but the representative was a little evasive on some details. After seeing the origins of this car, pointed out on this thread I understand why he was that way. He could not explain why he had a copy of the build sheet but not the original. He also wavered a bit on the numbers engine question.

The guy that had it at the show claimed he was one of the partners and he was pretty sure they were very firm on the number of around $240,00. Obviously they were not as they would have been a long way short of that after deducting the seller's fees, transportation and registration fees to take it to Indy.

The car did look awesome though.

The build sheet says it was sold to "Ralph's Service Center".  Hmmm.  How can a place with a name like that get a brand new Boss 429 shipped to them?  That doesn't sound like a dealership name?
Was Ralph's some sort of racing outfit?
1970 Boss 302 (since 1980)
1965 Mustang (since 1976)
1983 Capri RS Turbo (original owner)
1997 Ford powered 360 sprint car

Could have still had the build sheet in it under the carpet, or perhaps behind a door trim - who knows. On the note of the original going MIA, Kevin Marti was telling me a while back when we were yabbering (while shaking his head in disbelief), that he gets it a lot from people that have bought an original invoice from him (the old Eminger Invoice) and then call him later to 'get another', as they've lost it. Naturally, he can't produce another original Ford doc!
