This is quoted from a previous thread, "Looking to purchase a Boss 429":
I traveled to Dallas Friday afternoon to the Gas Monkey Garage to look at the Raven Black BOSS 429 Mustang, KK 1819.
I had a VERY SMALL, VERY NARROW, five minute window of time to view this car, so this is not and should not be considered a comprehensive evaluation of the condition of this car. I could easily be mistaken about certain specifics or details. Always do your own due diligence and determine to your satisfaction the condition of any car you wish to purchase.
What I saw: Replacement tear drop radio antenna mast, both front fenders are Boss 302 style service replacement fenders. Correct radiator and oil cooler. OEM Ford shifter, aftermarket wheel lug nuts (they are of mixed flavor and not a matched set); road rash on chin spoiler that was lying on the roof of the car; wrong starter relay (had the standard style, not the heavy-duty hockey puck style); some aftermarket junk under the hood on the front inner fender aprons (like a fuel pressure regulator and electronic ignition module); I failed to notice the distributor details; I could not determine if the car has had a repaint or not because it was too dirty to tell, since it was still wearing the barn fresh coating of dust complete with a cat's foot print tracks. Magnum 500's have extensive surface rust visible on wheel exterior bright work. Aftermarket tires. Appears to be correct B9 carburetor, but could not verify list number or date code.
Did not see: export brace; smog equipment; air cleaner/snorkel/heat riser stove; space saver/hold down J bolt/jack/inflator bottle; brake booster/master cylinder. They may have the export brace and the breather set-up, and perhaps the other items, but I did not see them, and did not inquire.
They were working on getting the car ready. I believe that they are in the process of doing a brake job, which probably includes vacuum booster rebuild and master cylinder rebuild, especially since those parts had been removed from the car. I was not able to inspect the under body or chassis components. I failed to look for the buck tag.
The car has real potential, but it is not what one would expect from reading the hype on the B-J promotional advertisement. It is going to take a lot of work and $$$ to resurrect these bones to a concours grade level.
Remember, I had a VERY SMALL, VERY NARROW, five minute window of time to view the car, so this is not and should not be considered a comprehensive evaluation of the condition of this car. I could easily be mistaken about certain specifics or details. Always do your own due diligence and determine to your satisfaction the condition of any car you wish to purchase.
I was there 1/3/14. I forgot to mention that the car has rear window slats and rear deck lid wing spoiler. I think that the B-J web page write-up about the car may have been edited to more accurately reflect the car's condition.
