That looks like a Mach I scoop based on the grill in the scoop opening to me. Wow, look at the snow behind the front grill !! Dean

Well, not a Boss 429, but, you have to salute those daily driven cars!

Welcome to the land of the Frozen Chosen. Yup, had snow here today again :(
We have 4 seasons- Almost winter, Winter, Still winter and Two weeks of bad skiing.

Great pic though, thanks for sharing. Back then, we just drove them, year round. Kept the gas tank full and threw a big azzed block of concrete in the trunk to get some traction. And tried to avoid the snow coming up through the holes in the floorboards lol.

Not nearly the extreme, but this really is a Boss 429. It belongs to my friend, Jim. He was featured in an online issue of Hot Rod magazine because he actually DRIVES his Boss Nine. Hot Rod was impressed that he drove it from Colorado Springs to California and back. It was snowing as he got in town.

Klutch, I seen your buddy's Boss when he entered it in the MCA National show in Kansas City several years ago. Lots of people were impressed he actually drove it there. Dean

I think that is indeed a Boss 429. If it was a Mach 1, I don't think you'd really be able to see much of the scoop from that angle, and there would be hood pin cables. What appears to be the scoop grille, is just the cable-operated flapper-door that resides just inside the snout of a Boss 429 scoop.

How about that funky side-protector molding on the front fender.. Yuck!!! That's more offensive than the snow is.. ;)
