We’re never short of amazed at what unique and truly special Mustangs we see cross the auction block. Every year we see fantastic examples of Mustang history change hands and this year is no different.
This April Mecum’s will be presenting this Hand-built 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429. What makes this car unique is not only that it was hand-built but the fact only 50 of these prototypes were ever produced. This car is #38 and the first Candyapple Red Boss 429 built and sold. and while we’re on numbers it’s worth noting that only the first 15 prototypes were used for testing meaning this car is only the 23rd offered for sale to the public.
The car is set to cross the block between April 24-26 at Mecum’s Kansas City Spring 2014 event.
