The Shelby GT350 wasn't the only high-performance Mustang available if you wanted a fast pony.
Classic Car Overview
This is a Uber-rare 195 hp/280 lb-ft E58 360 4-bbl Police motor car with a high performance non-lockup 727 Torqueflite transmission and 9.25″ rear axle. This was the most powerful engine you could get in a Dodge car in 1979, and was the engine used in the 79 Little Red Express truck.
I’ve owned this car for over 15 years and taken very good care of it. It has less than 61,000 miles on it. I replaced the 85mph speedometer at 60,400 miles with a NOS Police Certified 140mph speedometer – and put less than 500 miles on the car since. I have the original speedo in a box somewhere in the shed.
I replaced the leaky and restrictive Thermoquad and cast iron intake with a Edelbrock RPM intake and a Edelbrock Performer 650CFM Performer with e/choke and AC idle options. I replaced the troublesome air cleaner mounted ignition with a Mopar Performance electronic ignition conversion kit. The car is both quicker and faster than stock — but I should still have the old parts in a box in my shed.
This car is rust-free, always garaged, and never been farther north than Atlanta, Ga.
In addition to the GT Package – Options Include:
*E58 360ci – 4-BBL with dual exhaust, 727 Transmission and 9.25″ Rear
*Factory Installed AC
*Floor shifter with console
This is maybe the best equip and nicest 79 (far more rare than the 1978 GT and 20 more hp in the 1978 E58) GT available. The headlight doors are clear, the leather is great, carpet great, and the dash is great and without any cracking. Drives and rides like new, but faster; and brakes quick and straight. The car was just completely gone completely through and anything needing to be addressed was. Fly in and drive back to Alaska with confidence.
