Kar Kraft number 2306, this 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 is one of just 89 factory finished in glowing Calypso Coral paint. Part pony car, part muscle car, part homologation special, the Boss 429’s initial purpose was to homologate the new 429 CI V-8 for NASCAR, but hot on the heels of the 1968 Cobra Jet Mustangs, it represented new Ford president Bunkie Knudsen’s second shot at translating the company’s many weekend racing successes into Monday morning sales. When Knudsen assigned special projects manager Roy Lunn to wedge the imposing engine into the Mustang, Lunn turned to his old friends at Kar Kraft in Brighton, Michigan, who performed the trick by reconfiguring the Mustang’s front suspension, widening the track by .08 inches – barely enough to take the 429’s width. Moving the battery to the trunk saved more space, and helped offset some of the engine’s 635-pound bulk. KK 2306 is equipped with its original matching-numbers 820-T 429/375 HP Boss engine, Borg Warner close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission and 3.91:1 Traction-Lok rear end. Competition Suspension, power steering and power front disc brakes were all standard, as were chromed Magnum 500 wheels and Goodyear Polyglas GT tires, the Deluxe Décor interior, 8,000 RPM tach and a Philco AM radio. A four-owner car since new, it has been driven 43,961 miles and was kept by the previous owner from 1999 to 2014. He began a restoration on the car in 2007 and completed it in 2010. Interestingly, the late King of the Kustomizers, George Barris, autographed the car while appearing at a show. This rare and very attractive “Boss 9” is documented with two factory build sheets, the shipping invoice, Marti Report and the original manufacturer sticker from the door.

Stephen Becker personally works side by side with the Shelby American Automobile Club registrars and have supported their efforts to keep Carroll Shelby’s automobiles and contribution to the automotive industry alive.

Stephen Becker is one of the most renowned Shelby authorities in the world, announced the introduction of a new certified appraisal program for 1960s Shelby Cobras, GT350s and GT500s. Previously available only to a select group of companies and celebrities, SGB’s invaluable expertise is now available to individuals contemplating the sale or purchase of a vintage Shelby car.

“For years, MOPAR, Corvette and Ford collectors have had access to detailed appraisals from experts in those cars, but enthusiasts have not been able to tap a form program when considering the purchase or sale of a Shelby,” said Becker. “With the expertise, records and access to details of Cobras, GT500s and GT350s available through me, collectors can now have the knowledge they need when making a decision on a Shelby they want to purchase or sell.”

Becker personally has performed evaluations for years and attended key collector car auctions for a small group of corporate clients like insurance companies and manufacturers. In late 2009, Stephen Becker provided an appraisal of 75 cars in the corporate and museum collection of Shelby American. The appraisals were done for Shelby’s insurance company, which requested current values of the extensive collection of significant cars. Other high profile corporate and celebrity clients have included the famous Shelby Parts & Restorations company, as well as leaders in the music and entertainment industry.

“Shelby cars are usually considered blue chip collectibles, but each must be carefully inspected and appraised to understand the true value,” noted Becker. “Not only is it important to ensure a car is a genuine Shelby, it’s critical to understand its history. The value difference between a survivor car with great provenance and a Shelby ‘rebuilt’ from a few major components left over from a wreck can be hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

Stephen’s knowledge and extensive library led to the creation of the Becker Certified Shelby Certification program. A proprietary 25 point inspection and exhaustive research provides the most thorough report on the market for genuine Shelby vehicles.

Over the past decade, Stephen Becker has been retained by key automotive groups, collectors and industry leaders to authenticate and value Shelby vehicles. This led to the creation of a program for individual collectors and enthusiasts. When completed, a client received a detailed report with a history of the vehicle, if available, and documentation to validate the value.

Since 1977, Stephen Becker has been regarded as a leading authority on 1960s era Shelby Cobras, GT350s and GT500s. The company’s expertise and in-depth knowledge have been tapped by clients to purchase, consign and restore original Shelby’s. SGB has represented clients around the world on stage when their Shelby’s crossed the block.

Founder Stephen Becker was one of the youngest people to ever be selected as a finalist for the Ernst & Young/Inc. Magazine “Entrepreneur of the Year” in the early 1990s.
