I have 1971 429 4v from a Thunderbird. I am selling it as a total unit. It does not have a carburetor but does have a C6 transmission, radiator, and driveshaft. The car had 69000 miles on it and was driven by old people. There was a Mel Torme cassette in the player. I want $1000.00 cash and I am firm on the price. I am in RI and I will not break up the set. It must be picked up and I will not ship it. It ran last about 10 years ago. I fogged the engine with oil when it was shut down. BEE COOL

Out of curiosity . . . Will this drop in a 73 Mustang Vert, with top loader?

as a side note, I'm not THAT old, but I don't know why people assume old people have light right feet!! :D
I actually met a mature lady with a 429 t-bird at a meeting a few years back and she told me that she really loved the way it was accelerating...

My all time favorite vehicle is our 1969 Shelby GT500
Why, of why do you tempt me so? I have absolutely no need to replace the 302 2v in our currently awesome, very low miles (21,000 original miles) 73 Mustang Convertible with a huge 429 and C6 tranny... No need whatsoever. But, this is where the brain and the heart begin to part company... Have you found a buyer for the engine and tranny yet?

We are retired, and RI is not that far to go from Rochester, NY. Not for that kind of powertrain. And I have a spare carburetor that would fit on the 429 just fine (750 CFM Holley). I also have a 73 Mach 1 with any already powerful enough street/strip 351 and transplanted AOD the 429 and C6 would fit into nicely...

Man, what the hell am I thinking? Okay, seriously, is it available still?
