It originally came out with a bespoke front end, front spoiler and hood scoop which looked extremely sporty at that time. The model also had tweaked features and the distinguishable Boss 429 badge.
Over the decades, the Boss 429 has suffered other modifications as well, especially under the hood, where the American muscle received a massive 7.0-liter semi-hemi / shotgun V8 engine, with 375 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque, which at that time, was extremely impressive.
