I happen to own a 1969 Boss 429 as well. So I don't need to view Leno's video, I have one sitting about 150 feet from me.
Again, the first year for the 429CJ and SCJ (the Boss 429 was Ford's semi-hemi headed NASCAR engine, and quite a different animal) was 1970, available in the Torino and Montego. 1971 was the first year it became available in the Mustang and Cougar.

It wasn't until 1970 that the Torino switched to the 385-series 429. Absolutely-positively.
