1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
Fastback Car for sale by RB Collection in Allentown, Pennsylvania 18101
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.

This car is a great example of how the GT 350 grew from a stripped-out homologation special into a sophisticated and luxurious high-performance Grand Touring car.
