What are you working on? Rick Stanton Boss 429

Benny Parsons NASCAR Tribute

Rick Stanton is one of our long time Team Members and a true diehard Boss 429 lover/builder. His 1969 Ford Talladega Boss 429 powered Benny Parsons tribute car is legendary in our group. He built the car himself many years ago from a very derelict real Talladega. At a recent Aero Reunion, the engine got a little sick and it was time for a rebuild.

The video below is the engine that is going back into the Dega. The dyno tells the story, 870 HP with 809 Tq! I think Rick is going to have some real fun on track days.

Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
