Join us as we Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Boss!

It's been 50 years - January 15, 1969 to be exact, since the first Boss rolled off the line ushering in a new era of Ford performance. The first one rolled out of Kar Kraft in Michigan as a 1969 Boss 429 Mustang. Over the next couple years Ford would set new standards in the muscle car movement not only with the Boss 429 but also the Boss 302 and Boss 351. Fast forward to 2012 and Ford revived the Boss 302 nameplate for two years as part of Ford's new "road runner" engine equipped Mustangs along with a slew of other performance and aero add-ons.

Now, as part of the 2019 edition of the Carlisle Ford Nationals we intend to honor 50th anniversary by celebrating all things Boss! From the Cougars to Mustangs (old and new) that came equipped with the Boss nameplate to the dozens of swaps that have been done over the years. We will have a special display in Building T (APPLY TODAY for consideration) as well as a seminar or two on the Boss. There will also be a special area for Boss equipped vehicles to park on the Showfield (REGISTER HERE for the NPD Showfield). We are also working with M2 Machines to do a special 50th Anniversary Boss Mustang die cast as tribute to this historic milestone. We'll have more info coming soon on that. We hope to see you at the 2019 event as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of this iconic engine and the set of cars that came to be!
