Ford Mustang Boss 429 restomod brought to SEMA

Classic Restorations has brought its ultimate Mustang Boss 429 to SEMA

If you want the ultimate restomod Porsche, you would generally turn to Singer, but when you want a reproduction of one of Ford’s most iconic models, you turn to Classic Recreations.

The American company’s latest work was recently shown at this year’s SEMA show, and it’s based on Ford’s Mustang Boss 429, classically Ford’s biggest, baddest model of that generation. Like Singer, Classic Restorations doesn’t start from scratch, with this model being restored back to original before its standard 427 cubic inch V8, that’s 7-litres to you and I, was replaced for an upgraded 9-litre unit with a staggering 803bhp, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.

The bodywork has remained mostly unmodified, save for some sleeker detailing and modern lighting, but in typical restomod style, the wheels are now much bigger 18-inch units, sitting over the top of upgraded Wilwood brakes and uprated suspension.

The interior has also been upgraded with a modern stereo and custom centre console, but still has a distinct retro theme to it.

Like Singer, Classic Restorations builds its cars to the buyer’s specification, but isn’t quite so limited to a specific end product, making each of its models more distinct from one another. With a usual cost of around $150-200k (£115-154k) for most examples, the 429 Boss will likely sit a fair amount higher, as values already hover at around that amount for unmodified versions.
