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.

With a red interior and white vinyl covered hardtop, this car, with its new jacket is a stunner! Exterior With all rust removed, steel was smoothed and carefully sanded then give a coat of Red. The paint is overall good, with some inclusions of dirt and a few minutely small fisheyes . The white vinyl top is unmarred and an overall clean surface. Plenty of chrome is attached at the bumpers, quarter panel insert, rocker trim, doors and mirrors, and around lighting and windows. Badging is correct, and exterior is looking sharp! Dont forget the original polished Mustang wheels and wheel covers, wrapped in skinny whites. Interior Save for the aftermarket stereo, the interior is looking much like original with vinyl seats nearly perfect. Dash is clean, and full metal jacket, original steering wheel is fronting it, and the chrome on it, is slightly corroded and not perfect. Door panels are as pristine as the seating, and the plastic center console houses the automatic gear selector and shows a hole in it at the drivers side seat bolster area.
