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

For sale in our Chicago showroom is this absolutely stunning 1986 Ford Mustang GT Convertible. Powered by the original 43k mile 5.0l H.O. V8 with some tasteful upgrades and backed by a rebuilt AOD 4-speed automatic transmission. The long block is stock Ford, but almost everything bolted to the block has been changed out. BBK is sprinkled methodically around the engine, including a cold air intake, 65mm throttle body, equal-length headers, and a 190lph fuel pump. The intake manifold is a Trick Flow unit, and the electric water pump is made by CSR. Giving the voice to this burly 302 is a catless H-pipe. Power is no good without traction, so to keep the wheels from helplessly spinning, a set of 90/10 Lakewood struts were installed paired up with Strange Engineering 10-way adjustable shocks. The unibody on these Fox mustangs are known to twist, so to keep that from happening a set of frame connectors have been welded in, the torque boxes were welded and reinforced, and the rear control arms were replaced with aftermarket units to deflect less and keep the power going to the wheels. Sitting at all 4 corners are Weld Wheel Draglites with Mickey Thompson rubber. This Stang means business! Once inside the cabin, you will notice the Flaming River steering column, a definite upgrade from factory, a set of Autometer gauges to keep tabs on the engine RPMs as well as the water temp. You can feel the 3500 stall converter flash up when you lay on the gas and the 8.8 rear axle with all new internals spins the 4.10 gears and rockets you from a stop. This is one serious street car! With all these upgrades on an already clean 86, this is as good as it gets! Options include: AM/FM/Cassette, Power Convertible Top, Spare Tire & Jack, Lumbar Support, Power Brakes, Tilt Wheel, Seats Belts, Cloth Interior, Racing Wheels, and a Posi Traction Rear Axle.
