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

This 1965 Ford Mustang is an awesome way to get into the hobby for not a lot of money and still have a car that everyone wants. Nicely turned out, this V8-powered coupe is a great performer with a classic look, and thanks to regular exercise, its sorted and ready to enjoy. Wimbledon White is always an excellent choice on an early Mustang, especially the coupes. Black Shelby-style stripes and hood pins add an aggressive look, but none of it erases the honest good looks of a coupe. Its dressed up with quarter panel inserts, a subtle 302 badge on the front fenders (more on the engine in a moment), and the 1965-only crossbar grille. Chrome bumpers dress it up and all the stainless remains in great shape, so it really needs nothing more than an owner to jump in and start having some fun. The Palomino (tan) interior is a nice contrast to the usual black and light blue interiors found in Wimbledon White cars and it, too, was restored a few years ago. Wearing standard seat covers, it has a clean, uncluttered look that has held up well over the years. Matching door panels and a color-coordinated steering wheel help give it a finished look. The early Mustangs used a Falcon-based instrument panel with a wide central speedometer, and this one is joined by a column-mounted tachometer and the usual trio of auxiliary gauges under the dash. The original radio is long gone, replaced by a modern AM/FM/CD stereo head unit with speakers in the kick panels and in the package shelf, so it sounds pretty darned good for being 50 years old. It also includes an under-dash A/C unit that looks authentic but is backed by modern hardware under the hood. And yes, thats a 4-speed manual shifter sticking out of the transmission tunnel, making this pony a lot of fun to drive. In back, the trunk is properly finished with a plaid mat, jack bag, and full-sized spare with cover. As youve already noticed, the original C-code 2-barrel 289 is gone, replaced by an identically-sized 302 cubic inch V8. Rebuilt when the car was restored in the early 2000s, its a torquey powerplant that loves to rev and is a perfect match for the slick little coupe. Its quite a bit more detailed than original and offers upgrades like a 4-barrel Edelbrock carburetor and MSD ignition system, along with some chrome dress-up items. Clean inner fenders, bright red wiring, and fresh hoses mean its ready to cruise and a dual master cylinder means its safe. The 4-speed was rebuilt in 2006 and shifts beautifully, so youll blip the throttle and drop a gear just to feel the machinery doing its thing. Out back, the 8-inch rear is full of 2.80 gears, so its a fantastic cruiser that actually gets decent highway mileage and new shocks give it a great ride. A custom dual exhaust system with long-tube headers, H-pipe, and mellow-sounding mufflers give it a traditional Mustang sound thats never overpowering. Riding on classic styled steel wheels and 225/70/14 BFGoodrich radials, it has just the right stance. Affordable fun never looked so good, so why not take this Mustang home and find out why its been Americas favorite pony car for five decades. Call now!
