It's not Pastel Blue, it's Grabber Blue.

Looks like a meticulous restoration. The underside is about as nice as I have seen. The color just doesn't do it for me. Opinions are like noses, everybody has one.

It was owned by Earl P. For sale here about 8-10 years ago.
Then another guy here had it and said he was going to keep it and then said he might sell it.

That’s how everyone in the community that owns a B9 feels.
Except the people that own one in that color.  Plus a few dozen random people.
I kinda like it myself but have never been able to convince myself 2 buy one.

Yeah I think it grows on you. At first I thought it was a granny color, but I’m coming around to thinking it’s a white with an edgy ice blue influence! How’s that for a sales pitch?

I found that car in a barn back in the 80s south of cleveland & when i asked joey flowers (who owns 1259 one car after mine) why the odd color & he said he bought it from a girl whose dad gave it to her for a college gift if she went to school. Story goes her dad was a gearhead & told her he wanted to pick out the car but she could pick out the color combo so go figure that explains the odd color combo. We got the other 1 of 2 pastel/white int. in shop now but dont know the story on why it was ordered that way. There are 2 panther pink 70 hemi cudas made & there is an odd story on them also & they both are in car collection now.

I would put this color combo in the same class as the 1955-1956 Dodge LaFemme. The only option the Boss 9 did not have was a matching  umbrella. I see it is now relisted on EPAY. Great restoration on the wrong color car. I have to ask myself, why would Ford even offer this color on a high performance car? They already offered white paint. I cannot believe that they built 2. Car #1 is a good story. Grandma wasn't that excited about the color on a LTD or a Grand Marquis. Another question for all time.

I might be mistaken , but wasn't there one of these at the 2005 Boss Cars Reunion ?
Owner's first name was Peter. Can't remember his last name but the color of his Boss 429 stood out.

I just remembered he was from NJ

  I bought the car in 2013 at Scottsdale Barrett Jackson. Car was restored wrong by a DIY individual that thought he was doing some good. I had the car for a year and then had it completely restored again by Euler Restorations in Midland , Mich. Car has documented history back to the 70's . Yes it is still for sale. I am just taking on other project cars that I am looking forward to bringing back to there original status. Thanks Steve

Not unusual at all, One of my 428CJ cars took a year and 7 months to sell, the other took a year and 6 days ..... Boss 429's were even more expensive to buy and insure and were pretty tough to sell. By 1970, a lot of the muscle cars sat on the lot for a LONG time. There's an ad floating around the internet from a dealer in 1971 advertising new 1970 Shelbys for sale. (1970 Shelbys were left over 1969's  .......   :o   )

When I purchased my new mustang in September 1971 the dealer had three new unsold B9's, two grabber green, one pastel blue, all black interior. Even at that point they were still priced way out of my league.

   Just updating the car is still for sale. Would consider a 66 Shelby gt 350 Carryover or a 68 Shelby gt 500 convertible as a partial trade? Thanks Steve
