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 convertible has bright red paint, an upgraded A/C interior, and proper V8 power. So if youve ever closed your eyes to picture the ideal sunny day cruiser, we bet this is exactly what youve imagined. The iconic lines of the first-year Ford Mustang convertible are instantly recognizable the moment it turns a corner. But what really is impressive is when a car as crisp as this one. The sheetmetal has well-defined creases where you can see the sporty overhang of the hood, short rear deck, and the crease that runs the full length with a classic kick-up behind the door. Of course, the other reason you can see this so well is because of the big shine from the red paint. Its a period correct look that was upgraded later in life with a professional application, and so thats how you get quite a nice gloss. And competing for this shine is terrific brightwork on everything from the full rocker trim to the wraparound chrome bumpers. The white convertible top has the snug look of a quality fit, and we particularly the hint of coordination with the whitewall tires on the styled steel wheels. The white roof against the red paint gives this one the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle when the roof is in place, but theres a whole new style when you take the top down. After all, black interior against red exteriors always make for a great classic cruiser look. A smooth dash, taut door panels, clear gauges, and even the correct trunk mat make this a well-done package. Plus, you have the right driver-oriented features, like front bucket seats, a center console in-between, and a grippy sports steering wheel. There are also the right well-integrated upgrades to make sure you really enjoy the drive. The retro-style AM/FM digital tuner means better driving music, and you even have air conditioning blow cold from modern R134a refrigerant. This is a C-code convertible, and so its great to see Fords 289 cubic-inch V8 looking quite correct. The bold blue block, polished valve covers, and matching air topper give it a well-respected presentation. In fact, everything, right down to the wires and hoses look good. And because this is a drop-top you want to drive, it also comes with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and modern Hankook tires. Complete with owners manual, this is the iconic classic Mustang drop-top done the right way. Thats why its always going to be in demand. Dont miss out, call today!
