LARRY'S LEGEND LIVES

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

The recipe is simple: take one vintage Mustang, add a V8, fill it with accessories, then dress it in handsome blue paint. In reality, the application of the recipe is somewhat more challenging, but this 1968 Ford Mustang coupe absolutely nails it. This pony isnt about investments and numbers-chasing, its about traditional Mustang performance. And a big part of that appeal is making one of the greatest designs of all time into something that makes people stop in their tracks. This great-looking blue Mustang is arguably over-restored, since no 1968 Mustang ever had paint this shiny on the showroom floor, and its quite fresh, having been completed in the not-too-distant past. Look closely and youll be hard pressed to even find a few minor flaws, but Im pleased to see that they let the original shape speak for itself, and it speaks beautifully. Gaps are excellent, the panels are straight, and there arent many Americans who cant imagine themselves behind the wheel of this coupe. Chrome and stainless is quite good, giving this coupe a high-quality look that isnt just an illusion, with some parts, such as the door handles, likely being original. Theres also a black vinyl top that helps dress it up a bit without removing that Mustang attitude, leaving us with one great-looking coupe. The fairly stock look inside is a result of blending original and reproduction pieces seamlessly to give it a very inviting look. Most of the soft components are new, including the seat covers and carpets, while the door panels also appear to be recent and inserted into original door skins. Youre going to love the center console, which houses the automatic shifter and the factory garage door storage area up front, adding a very sporty look, and theres a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with speakers throughout the interior and a subwoofer in the trunk. This car originally had A/C, and the whole system has been upgraded with modern components, so it blows ice cold and remains easy to service. And one glance in the trunk is proof that this car has probably led an easy life, and the full-sized spare is just a good idea. The VIN says this car should be carrying a 289 cubic inch V8, which is what currently lives under the hood. Equipped with a chrome dress-up kit, the car delivers on the performance promises made by the appealing blue paint. Its mostly stock, but the intake manifold is topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor instead of the original 2-barrel while the A/C system is entirely new and the structure is reinforced with an export brace and Monte Carlo bar. It runs extremely well, with smooth torque befitting the semi-formal coupe, but a ripping performance soundtrack when youre running hard. The C4 3-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply and makes this an effortless cruiser and power steering and power front disc brakes are always welcome features in an early Mustang. A mellow-sounding dual exhaust system gives it that traditional Mustang sound and the tub has been reinforced with a set of subframe connectors that make a notable difference. Period Torque Thrust wheels look right and carry fresh 225/60/14 BFGoodrich radials. This is the Mustang youve been dreaming about since you were nine years old. Go ahead; at this price, its about time you owned a Mustang. Give us a call today!
