Continuation Mustang Boss 429 debuts at SEMA
A Mustang Boss 429 licensed by Ford – one of three new official continuation Mustangs being produced – has debuted at the SEMA show in Las Vegas
The only thing better than a new Ford Mustang is an old Mustang, or a new old Mustang. Classic Recreations is currently creating the latter, and the first of its creations has been unveiled at the 2018 SEMA Show.
Classic Recreations is building continuation versions of the Boss 302, Boss 429 and Mach 1, and the middle of the three is being shown to the world at the Las Vegas Convention Center during SEMA, following on from the sketches of the car that were released half a year ago.

The 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 originally came with a 429ci (7.0-litre) V8 and a four-speed manual transmission. Ford built the car so it could develop an engine to compete in NASCAR. For 2018, the car will use the same engine with a stroker kit fitted that increases the engine displacement to 514ci (8.4L).
A monumental 815bhp will be produced by the engine, which will be accompanied by a performance clutch and flywheel, an updated valvetrain, fuel injection system and engine management. Exterior modifications suggest a more modern rear end too.
A period Mustang body will be the default option for buyers, although brand new body shells licensed by Ford itself are also available as an option. Classic Recreations will spend almost a third of a year on building each car, with the entirety of the production process taking place in-house, and prices start at $209,000.
