Boss 9
Ohio George's.
BY JERRY HEASLEY
In early 1968, Boss 429 engine parts were not quite available. So, Ohio George ran a 427 Cammer for starters. He had been running this engine with huge success in his 1933 Willys and his 1967 Mustang fastback.

As hot as the Cammer Mach 1 was, the Boss 429 was the latest and greatest new powerplant in the Ford lineup. Like the Ohio George 427 Cammer, this Boss 429 was supercharged with a Roots 6-71 blower. This combination proved very successful.

 As you might expect, Ohio George wanted to go faster and believed the Boss 429 had more potential than the Cammer. The bottom end was much stronger in the Boss 429 compared to the Cammer, so he went looking for more power.

Ford assigned engineer Danny Jones to help George design his drag car. Jones had worked on Ford’s Indy Car program and, specifically, their famous and world-beating four-cam Indy V8. Jones applied technology from the Indy Car program to a second Boss 429 Gasser build to create the high-tech car seen here.

For this Boss 429 build, Danny Jones suggested a turbocharger, but not just one. He suggested two. Turbochargers have inherent advantages over superchargers. However, there was much more to this high-technology build than simply adding on a pair of turbochargers.

George offered some insight into the process when he said, “We ended up making that engine think it was two four cylinder Offys.” In this reference, “Offy” is short for Offenhauser, who had developed a famous four-cylinder Indy car engine with double overhead cams.

 Indy racers knew how to turbocharge a four-banger to the max. On this Boss 429 application, each turbo pumped up four cylinders, but not one turbo feeding each half of the V-8. Instead, each turbo supplied two cylinders on either side, which explains the exotic looking tubes crisscrossing into the intake manifold.

Bob Perkins says the twin-turbo Boss 429 was rarely beat on the drag strip due to the engine’s incredible mid-range torque. George said that at the end of the quarter-mile, the twin-turbo Boss Nine “just kept pulling.”

Part of this enigma is wrapped up in the mystery of turbochargers. A turbo anything in a big-block V-8 on the dragstrip back in 1971 was way ahead of its time – let alone a twin-turbo Boss 429 with an exotic valve train and hemispherical combustion chambers. Plus, sanctioning bodies did not know how to police turbochargers at that time.

 George’s twin-turbo Boss 429 was just superior, technologically speaking, compared to any of the supercharged V-8s of that era. Where the other Gassers could not catch up to some of the fastest cars, this Boss 429 twin-turbo could – and did, time after time.

After winning the 1973 and 1974 Gator Nationals, George retired the “Mr. Gasket Gasser”

I always really liked the chromed spring in front V8-60 axle. Just screams vintage survivor hot rod.

I ran it on my 428, but it was worked over a bit. Ran very well.
