It's here. The final Round of our March Muscle Car Madness. We're down to our last two contenders, and, of course, There Can Be Only One, though I bet many would argue there only is one already. That's because our two finalists are essentially brothers — only one year apart: The 1969 Boss 429 Mustang and the 1970 Boss 302 Mustang.
I'll admit to being a bit disappointed by this, as I was really hoping for the Olds 442 to go against the 'Stang here, but well, we've at least got a good Mustang fight to enjoy. It'll be sort of like dog fighting, and I know everybody loves that.We've got a Battle of the Bosses here. The 429 is a real beast — rated at 375 HP, but most believe that was severely underrated— actual figures are likely close to 500 HP. Compared to the Boss 302, the exterior was a bit more understated. The Boss 302 doesn't have the power of the 429, but it did finally eliminate the fake side-intake scoops, which, let's face it, were pretty silly.
So, let's get this brother-against-brother battle settled. Vote away. There can be only one!
