    I have the original air filter because it's attached to the stock intake. I saved all my takeoff parts, including shifter, brakes, and brake lines, but I disposed of the used oil filter and sold the GY tires.

    I have a reusable Airaid air filter that I used on my GT500 for the stock air intake setup, a decent way to pick up a little more hp and flow and can be cleaned and reused. I installed the stock AF back on the car before I sold it last year.

    It's listed in the marketplace, PM me if interested in picking it up.

    FWIW - Over the past 5 years I have sold 3 "correct" battery cores for the 1993 and 1995 Cobra R's, same as the production Cobra's of their specific years. The price for each battery core was $150 plus shipping and I sold all three to three different owners. Guys who own those cars now and show in MCA judged events are always looking for "correct assy. line parts" for judging purposes. That is why I kept the cores out of my 93R, 95R and 95 2-Top from 15 years ago to sell to guys who are looking for them now, years after the original were turned in as cores by previous owners.........That being said, the correct caps have to be in place and the decals/stickers need to be nice.

    Years ago when the batteries were replaced, I emptied out each core, and twice refilled with water and emptied to flush out the electrolyte. After the battery fully drained I put the original caps back in place and placed the battery cores in a plastic trash bags and stored the batteries in the bottom of a cabinet and forgot about them until the time was right. Since the batteries were completely flushed years before, and now dry inside, they were ready for shipping to their new owners........

    Yes, the Group 29 (I believe it was) BOSS9 trunk mount was a unique battery all by itself and not shared with the other Mustangs. If I remember correctly, the caps themselves were/are expensive for that battery?

    Yes, I had the caps too. Two sets actually. They sold for over $1500 a set. One off the most surprising actions was a nos shifter knob in the box we sold for $1000.

    That was the "T" handle with the 4 speed and reverse pattern in it along with the H and "HURST"? or was the 1970 only and 1969 had a different knob?

    69 had the round wood grain bottom with the blue shift pattern over white. What brought the value up was the Shelby enthusiast bid too. Early ebay was a lot of fun 20 years ago. We would start auctions at a dollar and have them end on Sunday nights. The good old days!

    It was a red 69 boss 429. Parts were very hard to come by. However I lived just miles from a friend that had multiple 429's he parted out. I would get parts from him (429 specific) and would trade, sale or use as pattern to manufacture them.
    We would travel to swap meets at Columbus Ohio, Carlisle, Carolina lowes motor speedway and countless other places in search of parts. It really was a treasure hunt.
    We documented and photographed every part. I have them on CD to this day.
    I sold the car to a gentleman in Illinois or Indiana can't remember, then he sold it to a guy in Canada.
    The people my wife and I met, and the places we went to for parts, was a memorable priceless experience. It was all about the hunt.

    I remember watching this 1969 BOSS9 sell about 2 years ago, I wondered what happened to the $300K+ prices from 10 years earlier???

    It was a nice well documented car also.....

    Yes, the bottom fell out of the boss 9. Several sold for over 500k 18-20 years ago.
    I got in at the right time and sold at the right time. Discussing it brings back a lot of fun times.

    I guess that surprises me, imo the BOSS9 is the Mustang at the top of the original muscle Mustang era, excluding Shelby's because they seem to have a following all of their own.

    It is amazing how discreet the owners are. We had well over 200 boss9 customers through ebay. It was before paypal and many would just send cash through the mail instead of money orders. We sold to people in the Netherlands that had some boss9's that were great people. They sent Christmas gifts and magazine articles that featured an auction we had. We sourced a lot of parts for them. We met people that had multiple bosses.
    The car is expensive to own. Correct filters and all service parts cost a lot. Air filters $125 easy. Plug wires alone with out insulators or boots $350 then for repo. Original nos plug wires $3500 if you could find them. Gaskets for the heads were over a grand then. It had many unique parts.
