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
No reason that all Mustangs have to be stock, right? This neatly modified 1965 Ford Mustang coupe still has all the things we love about Fords pony car, including V8 power, but adds an aggressive look that makes it stand out in a crowd. Not radical, but a comfortable cruiser with a high-impact that will always be the center of attention. A little bit of Shelby, a little bit late-model GT, and even a little bit Halloween with the orange-and-black finish (dont worry, apparently Orange is the New Black, so youre covered with either shade), this cool Mustang definitely looks the part of an aggressive street brawler. Nothing you see is a simple off-the-shelf mod, its all professional work that was done to enhance the conservative looks of the Mustang coupe without altering the clean lines and classic shape. And in that regard, its a big success. You probably notice the stripes first, a pair of Shelby-style black stripes running the length of the car. Theyre joined by a blacked-out tail panel, all that provide a perfect complement for the orange paint. The work was done some time ago, so theres some minor use and age on it, but after the wows that everyone gives this car, theyll never notice the little flaws. The grille and bumpers (in fact, all the bright trim) are nice and bright for added flashes (as if it this car ever needed it), and it reminds us that a 1965 Mustang is still one of the best-looking pony cars ever built. The interior sticks to the Mustang formula with buckets up front and a bench in back. The black upholstery is original-style and its nice to see a center console and a quick-shifting B&M automatic shifter split the front seats. Black plush carpets, a clean dash pad, taut headliner, and matching door panels all look great and keep with the OEM feel inside. The sporty three-spoke Grant steering wheel and factory gauges are your primary interface, although a couple under-dash auxiliary units were installed to provide a more accurate reading of the engines vitals. A retro-style AM/FM/Cassette stereo slots neatly into the original radios spot and power the modern speakers in the kick panels, and there are Mustang-logo floor mats protecting the plush black carpets underneath. Out back theres also a neatly finished trunk with a proper plaid mat that fits well. The powerful 302 cubic inch V8 under the hood pretty much sticks to the factory recipe aside from a few performance upgrades, so its reliable, torquey, and fun to drive. Theres an Edelbrock intake and Quick Fuel 4-barrel carb up top, so its pretty good on gas and even better on power, and the long-tube headers feed a Flowmaster dual exhaust system that really frees up a few horsepower. Other upgrades include an aluminum radiator up front to keep it cool on the hottest days, and power front disc brakes for proper stopping prowess. A few shiny accents look good in the orange engine bay and you can tell where the money was really spent on this Mustang. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and what looks like the original 8-inch rear end hangs out back with highway-friendly gears inside. A Flowmaster exhaust system with trumpet exhaust tips that exit through the rear valance sounds awesome, and the chassis has been augmented with air shocks and those handsome 15-inch Weld wheels wrapped in staggered 165/80/15 front and 235/60/15 rear Kumho performance radials. If you like the look, this car will make you very happy. It runs great, has plenty of power, and handles better than most early Mustangs. More proof that a modified Mustang can always be the center of attention. Call today!
