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
When production started in 1979, the Fox platform Foxbody Mustang was an instant hit with Mustang fans. A total about-face from the Mustang II that preceded it, this generation of Mustang was rapidly getting back to the classic Mustang roots! In 1983, the Fox Mustang got its first facelift, and then another in 1987, making this 1984 Mustang GT hatchback a solid example of a short run of cars! The outside condition of this car is almost astonishing. While it does have minor paint scratches (like perhaps from a car wash), the overall exterior condition is enough to take any admirer aback. The red paint, which very well could be original, but it also may be an older repaint, is eye-catching and pairs well with the still dark black plastic and painted moldings. The large GT hood stripe is the perfect final touch to completing the aggressive look this car offers. Never fear; those arent real TRX wheels! They are modern 16 replicas of the original TRXs. The owner is including the original, real TRX wheels with the sale as well. Overall, the outside of this Mustang gives off a really nice well-preserved vibe, though it may have undergone a partial restoration at some point. Additionally, this car has classic SEV Marchal fog lights installed in the front bumper complete with their covers. This car has a super clean interior; everything is in unbelievable condition! The front seats have been recovered in the correct material, and make a serious impression when you step into the car. The inside looks almost like a new car! All of the wear items such as buttons and door handles are in excellent condition, showing little to no wear. Even the dash pad is in great shape! The radio has been deleted by the owner, as he did not care for the sound of anything but the car! The steering wheel fits your hands just right, and mounted to the title column is a cruise control lever for those days when you want to take it easy. Before you ask, the odometer is showing 20k miles. As clean as this car is, it very well could be original. Unfortunately, its a 5-digit odometer and we are unsure if it is actual or not. Whether its 20k or 220k, either way, speaks to the quality and the condition of this car. Pop open the hood and youll see the iconic Ford 5.0L V8 that sits in the engine bay. Everything is clean under the hood and look at our Does it work checklist below, everything from the A/C to the horn functions as it should. Bolted to the engine is not a boring auto, but rather the fun 5-speed manual. According to the Marti Report this vehicle left the factory with 15 factory options which includes power windows, cruise, titl, a/c, tinted glass, GT equipment, power locks and more. This little Mustang runs and drives great. It would be a serious challenge to find another one this simple and clean for sale right now! T-tops, 5-speed, everything works, and you couldnt ask for a more well-kept example of a Foxbody Mustang. It even has a Marti report and some maintenance receipts! This Mustang has clearly been cared for, and all it needs is a new caretaker.
