A Revell-kit from the year 2000. According to John Gunnells "Muscle Car Field Guide" the Boss 429 Mustang was hand assembled by "Kar Kraft" in Brighton (Michigan). From August to December 1969 a total of 500 cars were put together. Total two year production was 1359 units, including a pair of 69 Boss 429 Cougars.
I painted the body in "Grabber Blue", one of five exterior colors available in 1970. "Fake wood" was done by hand with a brush as well as the Pony tri-bar emblem on the front grille. The "Good Year" tire-decals were obviously a litte bit different from the quality we are used to today. Since I don't like spoilers on classic American cars, I did not use them on this build.
