Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.

1982 Mustang GT

Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.


Classic Car Overview

We should be grateful to old pony cars like this 1965 Ford Mustang convertible. The Mustang is not only the granddaddy of the pony car, but its a gateway to the hobby that remains affordable, fun, and universally loved. There just arent many other vehicles that are known around the world that can also deliver this much fun for so little cash. This C-code ragtop is Exhibit A in the case of why Mustangs are great. First, it looks awesome, from the styling to the proportions to the code J Rangoon Red paint, which gives it a traditional high-visibility Mustang look. It is indeed this cars original color, and you can imagine the delighted first owner taking it home nearly fifty years ago, top down and a big, silly grin on his or her face. Well, thats whatll happen today when this cars next owner comes to collect it, too. This isnt a show car, so you dont need to fret about rain and bugs on the grille, but it does look good enough to make you wash it in the FRONT yard rather than out back, just so folks can see it. The paint job is a few years old, but shines up well enough and captures the original color pretty darned well. They skipped the stripes and fake GT bits, but it does have a correct crosshair grille, the quarter panel insert, and shiny chrome bumpers that look great. The simple black interior is a great complement to the bright red bodywork, offering a familiar disposition and adds to the Mustangs light-hearted attitude. The seat covers are slightly customized reproductions that have a few signs of use but remain in great shape, and the matching black carpets tie everything together. Factory-style door panels are in decent condition and the three-spoke steering wheel looks suitably racy. Theres a factory center console that makes the Mustang feel finished inside and the wide speedometer and auxiliary gauges appear to be in original condition with clear lenses and bright markings. This car carries the important options like a power convertible top and power steering, both of which make it daily-driver friendly, and the trunk offers a reproduction plaid mat for the right look. This pony carries a C-code 289 cubic inch V8, now upgraded to A-code specs with a 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust. Correctly finished with Ford Blue engine enamel and chrome tinwork, its a smooth, reliable cruiser, not a racer, a role the little V8 is happy to fill. There is lots of evidence of recent work, including a fresh tune up with new ignition system parts that light it off right away. It idles with a nice V8 burble and the way it runs means youll be looking for excuses to take it out of the garage every chance you get. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission adds to its user-friendly nature and according to the door tag, the rear gears are tall 2.80s so it just loafs along at highway speeds. A recent dual exhaust system gives it a nice V8 soundtrack and maybe a few extra horses and those 14-inch styled steel wheels with whitewall radials are a traditional Mustang look. So have a look and remember that this car has been Americas sweetheart for decades and theres no chance of that affair ending any time soon. Find out why by giving us a call today!
