KK2290 Pastel Blue 429
« on: October 27, 2013, 01:15:37 pm »
To all members, after careful thought and consideration I have decided to put the B9 up for sale. I am sure as you all know the car is known on the website and invite anyone to review the history. I purchased the car at the January 2013 Barrett Jackson auction. This will not be a fire sale as some might think , its just our thoughts have changed about restoring to a concourse level.     The description is as follows: 70 Boss 429 Still retains it original drivetrain and is NO# s matching through out. It is an older restoration done back around 2000.
 The interior is original to the car ,except for the carpet. Paint is not a concourse level , but did win a couple of local car shows. The engine has been rebuilt  during the restoration and just recently retuned. The major items that still need to be bought for the car to be back to factory specs are, exhaust, front wind shield, shocks , starter solenoid, and carpet. I would consider a Calypso Coral B2 with a white interior that is highly optioned and matching no.#s. for a partial trade. The current mileage is 47300. The car does have all original sheet metal except for the passenger lower quarter panel. I was told this was probably replaced due to battery acid. This is a 1 of 2 with this color combination and interior.  The other pastel blue car does not have its original engine. ASKING $195000     Thank you and look forward to questions and comments. I will try to get pics posted in the next couple of days.  Steve

This boss has all the original paperwork also & a very odd past history (the OE was a girl & she ordered the color combo imagine that)  but that is why it is a special boss as I looked at this car 25 years ago in a barn allcomplete but usual rust being in Cleveland area but researched the history on why the color combo & after finding out it makes sense & I always look at the RARITY (1of2) & yes its not for everybody (with that rare color combo) its for a collector who wants something different or odd &unique. Yes the older restoration can be & needs to be upgraded to todays standards but how many b9s still have their original window sticker?  I (being a mopar guy also) used to compare the 2 pastel/white 1970 b9s to the 2 1970 panther pink hemi cudas & you don't want to know what they last sold for.

I think the colour combo is really nice and reflective of the era. I'm bored driving everyday and looking at only 4 colours on the road... white, black, silver, grey. The summer brings out the toys and the fun starts but late 60s and early 70s brought out some great colours.
Good luck with your project.

mBOSSed, Thank you for your comments in regards to the color. It was actually the color that first caught my eye. The kk2290 is actually in the painting stage as we speak. I express to you how much I am pleased with the work that Martin Euler has down with the car . We are hoping to have it complete for the Corvette National Show in Chicago in November. I am curious as to how many other forum members have a Pastel blue car. Thanks Steve

I had a pastel blue blk interior car but made the mistake of selling it back in 2004.
