That stang looks concourse correct, so the price may be right
I dunno if I'd go that far. The mufflers are not correct. The previously mentioned missing center cap. And that car looks more like a driver than a trailered show car.

Had a friend with one at one time. Got some really neat photos of it behind my brothers '69 GT500 and him passing us like we were standing still when we both jumped on the go pedal.
Also had a former co-worker who's Dad owned one. Guy was soooo mad his Dad sold the car and he wanted it real bad. Can't blame the Dad though. His kid was NOT a car guy, had no where to store it, and it was part of his retirement funds.
FWIW, I'm thinking that those are the incorrect center caps on those wheels anyway. I'm not sure if it was '69 or '70 or both, but one year of the Boss 429 had taller center caps that were specific to this car only. So many parts on these cars are specific to the Boss 429 only. Even the lug nuts bring thousands $$$.

Looks like possibly an older restoration that has had some use.... I see brake fluid on the canister, and what looks like a leaking radiator tank... the mufflers appear to be Flowmasters.....all in all a very nice car.
The price 5 to 10 years ago would have been a steal. Still a pretty good price for a Boss 9 IMO..... it is alot of car, and the value will swing back....

About a year ago I was talking to someone who found a Boss 429 that was more or less in pieces. The owner had started taking it apart in the early 80s and never got back to the "project". I think the asking price was in the low six figure range and the person I was talking to was debating it and trying to figure out what parts were missing due to how much money they cost to get v. also what he perhaps could just get out of it all via parts sells. I have no idea if he ultimately got the car or not.
It looks to be missing the rear sway bar, front spoiler is a Mach 1 spoiler (Boss is shorter), and as others have inferred, it appears to be in "nice driver" condition...
Mileage like that is very typical for Boss 429's (they weren't exactly practical for daily use with 3.91 gears, no a/c, etc..), so most Boss nines you see are in the 40,000 or-less category, so nothing really "amazing" regarding the mileage or general originality.
Any-hoo, I've been seeing restored '70 Bosses that are ready for MCA Concours-class competition go for that price-range. So given the condition of this car, albeit it's a nice car, you could call it strong... Then again, they don't grow on trees, and the right buyer may be so-inclined. I don't blame the seller for starting there.
