Anyone Know This Car
« on: November 28, 2020, 09:16:11 AM »
I am thinking of going to look at this car.  There was one that looked identical that ran on Ebay for a while but I am not sure if it was the same one.  It is at a car dealer in Dallas who I know nothing about.  Here is the link but the website is clunky - at least for me I have to let the site stay open for a bit before I can click on it.  I have not seen a KK number on the car and, quite frankly, I don't know a ton about the Boss 429 other than the obvious.  If any of you can give me any information on this car I would be appreciative.  At $279K it is on the higher side of life but it claims to be a fresh restoration from an unknown restorer so I am dubious that it is correct.

Take Ed with you. Mustangs donít have frames so the first sentence in the ad is not accurate.

Thanks for the info.  Trying to figure out how that car was on Ebay for a while, as recently as a month ago, and now if you look in completed auctions it is nowhere to be found?

I think they(non-informed) just like to use the "frame-off" phrase, just like people like to use "Barn find".

I think "Barn find" is accepted now as time goes on in a sense that it don't matter where vehicles are found, it'll always be a barn find ;D

Take Ed with you.

If I knew who Ed was I would contact him.  The car is high priced enough that there is no way I would buy it without someone who knows what they are doing.

Eric,  you are missing out if you do not know Ed!   
He is a special individual.
Maybe reach out to Nate who is on the forms here also he can hook you up

I looked in the member list and if you put Meyer it comes up with nothing.  If someone knows what he posts under I will PM him.  This car looks good but given how many times it has been through the auction I am dubious that it is really a good car.
