No. Production ran from January 1969 to July 1969: 859 units total.

Kar Kraft had to do some heavy massaging, specifically to the shock towers, to the Mustang's engine compartment to get the Boss 429 to fit as you can see from these two photos.

To say that the Chevrolet Chevelle was a bread and butter car for General Motors is a bit of an understatement. During its 1968–72 run, a whopping 2.4 million examples were built, spread across two-door sedans, coupes, hardtops, convertibles, and wagons, as well as four-door sedans and wagons.

There were just under 192,000 SS examples produced, or roughly eight percent of the final build count. Those cars can be further broken down along the following lines: 44,239 Z15 package cars (1971–72), 23,568 SS 454s (1970–72, of which 4475 were LS6 models), 53,599 SS 396s (1970), 86,307 Z25 SS cars (1969), and 62,785 Super Sport editions (1968, also known as the SS 396).

'

Here's one more 429 pic, engine assy sure looks too large to fit.
Windshield #'s appear to go to 99 then 1 again, car behind this one looks like #79?
