Very nice. But $92K nice? No complaints about the car but where would I live if I came up with that kind of cash?

A car worth that much and they don't just pony up for the stainless exhaust? I understand it probably hasn't seen rain or anything that could cause rust in 30 years.



Aluminized exhaust is not a selling point on a 92K car.




Beautiful and rare car certainly. 429 Ram Air Convertible Hell Ya

Wow, not a huge fan of the white top, just looks out of place with the matte black on the hood? Nice car though otherwise!

Before everyone goes bonkers at the price, remember this:

Of all the cars that have been offered at nutzola prices of recent:

A. This is the only one that deserves a premium - a genuine 429 convertible.
B. A rare car by default (1 of 42) and a 1-of-1 in its class.
C. We get to see the floorpans, and they're not Swiss cheese.
D. At $92k, you don't have to ask about the trunk floor either.
E. Cheaper than an equivalent convertible HEMI 'Cuda.

It might be cheaper than a Hemi-Cuda, but it will never carry the same weight in collector circles as a Hemi-Cuda either...unfortunately.
The main problem is that Ford introduced the 429 to the Mustang line far too late and in too-few numbers to have had any chance to build a reputation as the 426 hemi did over the 5 (or so) years Chrysler offered it in various cars.
In Ford circles, the 428 CJ has the "wow" factor and to the uninitiated, is the "better" of the two CJ's (428 vs 429...sorry 351-guys, I don't consider a 351 a CJ no matter what Ford says).
The 429 is far more advanced and much more durable than the 428 ever was, and produced equal if not more power. There is much debate as to the actual quickest factory-produced classic Mustang: A 428 CJ powered '69, or was it a 429 CJ powered '71? Some like to even say a BOSS 351 holds the "quickest" title...but it just aint so.
The 429 appeared in '70 and by then the super-car craze had already peaked and was on the way out. If Ford had produced the 429 CJ/SCJ twins in '69-'71, I think the mighty 429 would have garnered enough favorable press to be forever known as the Hemi-killer, and our big-block 71s would be that much more desirable and valuable.
However, by the time ther 429 came around in the Mustang, nobody really cared about these kinds of cars anymore. That is why so few 71 Hemi-Cudas and 429 Mustangs were actually made: Nobody really cared or wanted them, hard as it is to belive these days.

Where are the numbers to match on a numbers matching car? I was a little flabbergasted by the price but I have only seen Shelby's command this kind of money. Thanks for the explanations.

Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

All valid points, Kit.

Thing is, I think the forum is concentrating more on the price than the car this time; making fun of it where it doesn't deserve it.

It's not the same as Thelma and Louise selling their clapped-out "approximately 300-mile" '72 Convertible on eBay with a $85k price and a grainy, Photoshopped picture in front of Peña Brothers Upholstery. This is a genuine 429 car being sold in an honest manner.

Granted, the price may be wishful thinking - but the product is no joke.
