Mecum Kissimmee Preview: 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429

When it comes to classic car auctions, few combine high-grade metal with a welcomed approachability like the Mecum Auction does. One of the key events for the auction company in its annual circuit is the Kissimmee auctions. This year, it will be held January 18-27, and leading up to this year's auction, we are taking a look at some of the most hyped cars– that may fetch the most money! Right near the top of the list is this insanely clean 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429. '69 was the first major redesign of Ford's iconic muscle car, though the true generational change did not occur until 1971. This redesign allowed for more muscular styling reflective of a time when the GTO Judge was roaming the streets. The Boss 429 was THE top of the Mustang performance pile, with a robust 375 horsepower and 450 pound feet of toque, sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. This was was one of the true bad boys of the muscle car era. According to Mecum, this car is a part of the John Justo collection, and is completely unrestored, with only 8,064 miles on the odometer. The car was a winner of the "Shelby Originality Award," and comes with two build sheets, the original title…oh and the window sticker is still on the window. How much will all this coin set you back? Mecum estimates that this example will fetch anywhere from $425,000 to $500,000. Image credit: Mecum
