As collectors ourselves there is no question that the ACME Trading version is worth the extra $30 to $40. We pride ourselves on honesty and doing right by our customers. We believe that all resellers of both of these models should disclose this information to their customers. These cars are a serious investment and we would want to know!

History of This Car

This was one of the first prototype Boss 429s built by Kar Kraft, the performance race shop that Ford contracted to build many prototypes and race cars during this era. This 429 was an exceptionally rare piece. It was painted gloss black with a gold hood and gold sport slat rear louvers and gold C stripes, like on a Boss 302, but instead of having Boss 302 on the fenders it read Boss 429! This car was the very prototype designed by famed Mustang designer Larry Shinoda and was supposed to be delivered to the Ford president Semon "Bunkie" Knudson. Unfortunately this delivery never occurred as Knudson was fired from Ford soon before he was able to take delivery of this infamous 429. Not knowing the significance of the car, the 429 prototype was moved to the employee resale lot and was bought by a Ford employee. The whereabouts of this Mustang are still unknown. The employee who purchased the car sold it not long after the purchase and enthusiasts have been searching for it ever since!
.
The story is quite incredible. Even more incredible is no one has accounted for nor found this car and the search continues today.  ACME Diecast has secured the rights to produce a 750 pc limited production run of Bunkie's prototype 1969 BOSS 429 Mustang.
