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.
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
View and Bid on this vehicle at Bid.WheelerAuctionGroup.com Very few classic cars can carry the distinction as one of the highest produced cars of its time and as well as some of the rarest cars of its time, but yet the Ford Mustang is able to do this for nearly every year. Think about it, as many Mustangs were produced in 1969 only a fraction left the factory as BOSS 429s. If you include the 64.5 Mustangs, Over 600,000 mustangs were produced in just 1965 alone! of those less than 8,000 were k-code 271hp Mustangs. Thats 1.3% of the entire production run. Now you can understand why were are really excited about this 1965 Ford Mustang K-code fastback. Not only did this leave the factory as one of the rarest mustangs out there, but it also left in arguably the greatest colors - Code A - Raven Black. Its accented very nicely by the rare palomino pony interior. Quick observers will notice that it wears all the correct GT components, but I dont believe it to be a real GT. The mustang doesnt have much documentation short of owners manual and hipo manual. But, from what I can tell, it very well could be a dealer installed GT package because its all there - correct gauges, fog lights, 13/16 front sway bar, AX coded steering box, exhaust out the rear, correct stripe, badging, etc.. But without documentation, theres no way to know for certain. The paint shows very well and we would call it good driver condition. Its black so it shows a lot of the minor flaws that colors like red and yellow wont. But a good wet sand and buff and this car would eliminate a lot of the flaws that have occurred over time. Most of which are just from road debris. Whoever painted it clearly knew what they were doing because the car is straight and clean. Id just say its probably a 10 - 15 years on the paint. Pop open the hood and youll see the correct 289ci V8 wearing the correct big exhaust manifolds, correct dampener and correct dual point distributor. These K-codes made 271hp at 6,000 rpms! Today this engine fires up easily and sounds great. Backed to the engine is the correct BX code close ratio top loader 4-speed manual with a 8.8 rear out back. Inside the interior shows extremely well. The tan palomino interior features bucket pony seats, folding 2+2 rear seats, wood grain steering wheel and a upgraded AM/FM cassette player. Its a great accent to the black exterior and a color combination that you just never see on these old mustangs. Dont miss your chance to own this one of a kind Mustang. DOES IT WORK?
