Looking for 429 motor
« on: March 07, 2019, 10:27:23 am »
Hello all, I recently purchased 69 boss that was turned into drag car. Story I was told is that motor and car had been sold separately in the 80’s. So shoot in the dark looking for motor. The last four of vin is 1604. 

Thanks Russ

Why not buy a new Boss 9 engine from Jon Kaase?
Current lifelong project:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 6 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase headed, intake mounted with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!

I have a Boss 9 that I bought way back around 1980 in Canonsburg PA. (Near Pittsburgh.) The owner had a complete car,(White with Black stripes.) He stated this was the original engine that came in the car. He had a race motor in it which he said had aluminum rods. I bought the engine completely apart in pieces. Sometime in the 80's, I built it up for a radical custom Corvette with a Don Hampton blower. Never put it in a car. Has been on an engine stand all these years. I start it up once in awhile. I just turned 70 this week and decided I might sell it. (Running out of years!!!) I can find no serial number anywhere on the block. Am putting a 289 back in the Vette just like I ran it back in 1975 and '76.

I have a complete B9 motor assembly I put in my B9 in 2003 as a backup to the original engine.  I am now ready to put the original engine together and have this one available.  It is an "A" block that was used by Ford as a warranty replacement for another B9 back in December of 1969.  This block was subsequently replaced  again in the car and I was able to buy it from the original owner of the  B9.  It was bought as a spare since I was doing some racing with my own B9.  It has no serial number, only the date code (9M1R) below the right head.  It is complete from the timing cover on back including the correct date coded fuel pump, distributor and carb.  The bellhousing , flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, clutch arm, boot and transmission are all included.  I don't have the serial number yet off the transmission but can supply it if necessary.  Email me at rjhank@sbcglobal.net for engine build photos and a detail component list.
P.S. It has the Nascar C9AX Damper on the front of the crank and it was rebuilt by Damper Dudes.
