If you want a “brand new” 1969 and 1970 Mustang Mach 1, Boss 302, and Boss 429, they are all available for sale. Ford has a new Mach 1 in the works. It’s not a Mustang, but an all-electric performance utility vehicle that it plans to unveil in a couple of years. If that’s not your thing, don’t worry. You can buy a brand new replica Mustang Mach 1, which is the closest thing to it.
Classic Recreations, based in Yukon, Oklahoma, has been building several officially-licensed continuation Mustang Shelby models for the past 10 years plus, and has now secured the rights to do the same for the 1969-1970 Mach 1, Boss 302 and Boss 429.
There are two ways they start. One is a new body built by R3 or the other is a standard Mustang donor car that they strip down, get in perfect shape and add all of the bits needed to recreate the original look of the high performance models.
Everything underneath gets restored, too, including a coilover suspension setup, modern brakes and a new Ford Performance engine.
Classic Recreations will put in anything a customer wants. However, owner Jason Engel says the first 429 will have a 460 cubic-inch V8 with “Boss 9” hemispherical heads and electronic fuel injection that’s already putting out 700 hp.
The Boss 302 engine will be a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 that will be modified. Also, a stroked 363 cubic-inch V8 will be offered. The Mach 1’s engine bay is suited for both.
The cost to purchase one of these will range from $169,000 for the Mach 1 and Boss 302 to $209,000 for the Boss 429. Not a bad deal, considering the last of those is a bargain compared to what vintage Boss 429s are going for these days, while the Boss 302 is competitive with market prices for originals.
The Boss 429 will make its public debut at the Fall SEMA show in Las Vegas. If you want to go ahead and place your order, the order books for all of the models are open now.Categories: Blog
