    Custom 69 Boss 429 Mustang in Bradford/Bingley area '80/'90's info wanted

    I am after any history/photos for the current owner of a green '69 Boss 429 Mustang that lived in the Bradford/Bingley area (the owner was Phil Smith)back in the '80's/'90's. It probably didn't have the Boss 429 engine in it at the time and might not have had the Boss markings on it either, but it was distinctive in that it was mildly customised in that it had shaved door handles and flared wheel arches and a roll bar.
    It was sold in the mid '90's and went south to a collector, Roy Carrington. Later it was sold on possibly to Germany first, and now is being fully restored in Sweden
    It is not the Barnsley scrapyard owners one, the Woolhouses that lived up in the air on a ramp (anybody got photos of that one?), as one of the sons still has it, still engine less.
    Martin '63 Fairlane Sports coupe (v. long term project)
    '66 Belvedere II convertible 440+6 (also a project, but not as long)
    + various '80's/90's classics

    I did message you elsewhere a couple of weeks ago Olly, you were going to ask somebody
    Re. The Woolhouses car, its been mentioned that it was red, but somebody else has said it was dark green and at one time another dark green one (ex. lord xxxx, sold at auction at a Scottish castle with the Superbird etc.) was there as well?

    Ah, yes it was Red I think when I saw it on the ramp. So does Steve own that now?,
    I think one of the Bros had to "bail" out of the UK for...err...a reason that I wont post here

    I think that would be the auction at Sorne castle you mention, the Charger reg number DGE 426X also came from that sale IIRC
    I do not know if the 9 was there but I do remember one hell of a catalogue for the auction, im sure someone will have a copy of the listings?, worth a try.
    Anything is poss mate, we found a 68 Fury 6 years ago in a garden 2 miles from me, when applied for the V5 and it came back I soon realised it was a car I had driven in 1991. Sits in my workshop today.
    I would love to see that 9 again if ever possible, a '69 fastback Mustang has no bad body lines at all, lovely cars.....and that fkn hurts to say when MOPAR runs through my veins LOL

    Steve being one of the Woolhouses? well apparently they never owned the 9 on the ramp, it was there for work as you know for years and yes one of the sons still has it.

    Is that the Red 69 that was on the lunchtime parade at the Pod way back when. I remember the commentator bollocking the driver for getting it out of shape . Rumored to be in a disused church somewhere in Norfolk along with a collection of Hemi cars. If it is I sadly have no idea of where it is.
