If you were to ask any muscle car fan what the greatest classic Mustang ever built was, you would hear a lot of people vote for the Boss 429 from 1969. Based around a racing motor that was created for NASCAR use, the ’69 Boss is a special kind of beast, and one that hasn’t been recreated. With just over 7.0-liters of displacement, this has the largest motor ever fitted to a Mustang, and thanks to its generally modest customization and visual flare, it is also one of the best factory sleepers to come from Ford’s long history. To commemorate such an incredible car, Muscle Car of the Week did a cool video covering this iconic pony.

While there may be a fair bit of noise and motion in this video, what you really need to be watching this for is the history. Professor Musclecar, as we’ve taken to calling the host, takes his time diving deeply into how this Mustang was born and why it’s so special. He even takes the time to explain the interesting features about its unbelievable engine. This is the kind of video that real Mustang fans will love.

But don’t let my talking keep you away from it. Just press play and bask in the glory that is the NASCAR-powered monster Mustang from 1969: the Boss 429.
