Chicago'da düzenlenen Mecum Auctions’ müzayedesinde satılan en pahalı Mustang, burada gördüğünüz mavi renkli Boss 429 modeliydi.

18 Eylül 1969'da banttan çıkan bu Mustang Boss 429 Fastback, 1970 model yılında üretilen 499 otomobilden biriydi. Otomobil banttan indikten sonra Kuzey Carolina, Conover'de bulunan Boyce Ranson Ford tarafından satılmıştı. Her ne kadar 47 yaşında olsa da otomobil sadece 40.233 kilometrede ve bu tamamen orijinal. Üstelik müzayede için gerçekleştirilen restorasyon otomobili daha da arzu edilir bir hale getiriyor. 

Bunlar Grabber Blue ve beyaz kombinasyounda üretilmiş bu etkileyici Mustang için 245.000 dolar istenmesi için yeterli nedenler.

Bu Mustang'le ilgili seveceğiniz çok şey var. Restorasyonda hem orijinal hem de NOS parçalarına yer verilmiş. Orijinal 375 bg gücündeki 429 Boss motoruna Drag Pack ve dört ileri manuel şanzıman entegre edilmiş.

Bu Mustang'in dışında Mecum Auctions'da 434 farklı otomobil alıcı buldu. 6-8 Ekim'de gerçekleştirilen müzayedede toplam satışlar 10.5 milyon doları geçti. İlk 10'a giren otomobiller şöyle: 

  1. 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback at $245,000;
  2. 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible at $123,000;
  3. 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet at $100,000;
  4. 2004 Rolls-Royce Phantom at $90,000;
  5. 1956 Chevrolet Nomad Resto Mod at $85,500;
  6. 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code at $85,000;
  7. 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T at $80,000;
  8. 1968 Shelby GT500KR Fastback at $77,000;
  9. 1968 Ford Mustang Convertible at $70,000;
  10. 1966 Shelby GT350H Fastback at $137,500.

Klasik Mustang'lere hala talep yüksek olsa da aynı şeyi yeni model için söylemek zor. Ford, Flat Rock fabrikasında üretime ara vermek zorunda kaldı çünkü Mustang satışları geçen yıla göre yüzde 32 düşerek 6429 adete geriledi. Eylül ayının sonunda Ford stoklarında 89 günlük araç biriktiğini açıkladı, bu oran öngrülen 30 günlük stok standartının çok üzerinde.
