The Boss 429 gas funny car – Wayne Gapp

I don’t have many pictures of this vehicle. As my Dad stated they didn’t run the car much and his work responsibilities for Ford and the Boss 429 kind of took over.

This picture came from Facebook and I do not know the original poster’s name. The come from a car show in July of 1969. The paint and detail work is something that I was pretty surprised by given that I’ve only really seen black and white pics. 

Note that ‘Performance Engineering’ is the company he had to built engines for Ford racers during that time and was the precursor to ‘Gapp & Roush Performance Engineering’.

Darryl Huffman has this body and is looking for another Logghe chassis to stick under it as the chassis that you see here came from Pete Gate’s ‘Gate Job’ Comet.
