1970 Boss 429 For Sale Calypso Coral with White Interior
« on: October 09, 2015, 04:06:55 pm »
Arguably the most desired Boss 429 built in 1970, KK 2433 is Calypso Coral with a white interior. This car is 1 of 13 made in this color combination and 1 of only 3 (now 4) documented cars known to exist. This car recently received a no expense spared concourse correct restoration. This is one of the finest examples of a 1970 Boss 429 that has been inspected on a lift by renowned Boss 429 expert Ed Meyer and used as a tech car to demonstrate correct restoration techniques at the International Mustang meet in Missoula, Montana in September.

The car was never molested and retains all original body panels. 12,000 miles were accumulated when the bottom end of the engine let go during a test drive in 1973. Previous owner installed a 351C and put another 9,700 miles on the car until it was disassembled in 1975 for a restoration that was never finished. When I had it restored in 2015 the car was stripped down to bare metal, epoxy primered  and then painted in single stage acrylic urethane enamel. There was no rust evident anywhere on the car.
Almost all parts used in the restoration were original or NOS. Engine block was rebuilt although not  the original it is as close as you can get (came from KK 2444). The heads,carb, intake, transmission, eng fan, fan guard, p/s pump, p/s cylinder, space saver spare, inflator bottle, rad, rev limiter, oil cooler and lines and rear differential are all original to the car and all have been restored to original condition.   
The interior has had the original bezels rechromed using the  original door panels and NOS upholstery and headliner. The original wheels have also been restored. Original Kar Kraft invoices, Marti report, litter bag and all prevalent literature as well as a complete photo library of restoration. 
Far too much too list 
 $400,000 US.

some of the posted pictures are older pics but the corrections were made now & should have some better updated pics since the IMM montanna meet last month. I think that color combo is very pretty.

Donald farr & I am writing up the sales story for this b9 jan 14th mecum fl. & photos have been taken for this feature star car sat afternoon for the sales book coming out dec. We decided to run the 70 b9 there since only 1 other 69 b9 will be there as of now anyway & not 7 like last year as that's WAAAAAY TOOOO many b9s at one auction.

Well so much for that thought as I now see 2 more b9s listed on mecum fl. auction & don't know where they got the mca gold award listed on the orange/white int.b9 as that car was never at mca show & that will be corrected as soon as Donald sends mecum our updated description.  No b9s listed at BJ scottsdale yet anybody know of any going ?

Ed, I might be going but only for the last Sat. Will be flying no trailer. Still flying below the radar, if you know what I mean.
