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
1965 Mustang convertible for sale – Purchased three years ago from the man who restored it. He completely restored the body with new quarter panels, rocker panels and fenders. I asked the body shop that repainted it if he did it right. He told me “The guy did everything he should have done to it”. I could find no evidence of bondo, although I’m sure he must have skimmed it. He also restored the interior with new pony interior, carpet, door panels, etc. The only thing he did not do was to overhaul the engine. I had the engine pulled out and had it completely rebuilt. Upon doing so we discovered that someone had swapped out the 289 c.i. with a 302 c.i. I had the oil changed after 500 miles but, no oil change since then because it hasn’t been driven 3000 miles yet. I also added disc brakes to the front, AC, shocks, alternator, battery, four barrel carburetor, four core aluminum radiator and electric fan. Those are the major things but there were also many little things as well. It has always been garaged and covered as well. I have all paperwork (receipts, etc.) since I have owned it. This vehicle is not numbers matching or anything like that. And, I didn’t buy it for an investment. I simply love the first generation of Mustangs and wanted something fun to drive occasionally and go to car shows with. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. But, I’m simply not using it that much anymore and I don’t like seeing it sit. It needs a new home.
UPDATE! I just spent $200 having it detailed including clay barring for whomever the new owner my be. I added some more pics. Also, you may notice that there isn't an ashtray or the left hand knob on the radio. I have both. I was going to add a 3mm female plug so I could hook my phone up to the radio. I stopped since I decided to sell it. The buyer may not want to do that.
