FYI,...You will need a minimum of $125k to restore the Boss 429 'after' you purchase it along with your time. Major project.

I would bet that it would be closer to $500,000+ if fully restored. It's not just a '69, it's a '69 Nascar car. You're looking at 45 years of history.

I would be surprised to see this car go for $50k+ in that shape. I don't think the market is there for it anymore but I could be wrong. It's hard to know where the will be and this is not a "survivor" car, which is where the high end market seems to be moving.

Curious why it would cost 150K to restore this? Is this if you take it to a shop or if you do the restore yourself?

Take this with a grain to salt since it was a Barrett Jackson auction....

BOSS 429 # 1255 sold for $605k (price includes buyers commission). This one was fully restored, totally documented AND is one of the surviving first 50 B429's built (possibly why auction blew up).
http://www.barrett-jackson.com/appli...n=1325&aid=221


Here is another B429 (again BJ auction), this one is White. This one ended at only $258.5k:
http://www.barrett-jackson.com/appli...=12950&aid=403

Raven Black B429 (another BJ auction), sold for $275k:
http://www.barrett-jackson.com/appli...n=5048&aid=466

and I'm sure there are many others that can be found... Value or street pricing seems to be all over, depending on documentation, KK NASCAR Build # and other conditions.

IF the car in the Craig's ad still has many of the rare B429 parts, that's a big +. If the buyer has the means and capability to restore or do the restoration work themselves, that could be a cost savings as well.

One might wonder why if the seller knows the facts surrounding a B429 they would not advertise the car through eBay, which is a much larger audience....

Nascar was on all the tags, and it was there to get the motor legal for racing , ford needed something to run against the HEMI (didnt work)

With a 50k starting price on the listing and the fees when the car sells = big money to ebay.
To simplify: seller is likely a cheapskate.

Makes me sad that somewhere along the line someone let it get to that state in the first place.

I am pretty sure Ebay car sales are not comission based. They are flat rate.

If that is now the case then it has changed. The couple of cars I've sold on ebay (many years ago) I had to pay a percentage of the final value to ebay upon close of auction.
