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
Fast, affordable, and an unbeatable color combination - this 1988 Ford Mustang GTs fuel-injected 5.0 V8, five-speed manual transmission, and drop-top appeal makes for an irresistible classic convertible thats meant for drivers. The factory-correct Oxford White paint gives this a premium look. It holds up in modern times particularly well because the paintwork was professionally redone a few years ago. And quite frankly, its always nice to know that a sunshine-friendly car like this has a good luster when the light hits it. The GTs from this era a particularly desirable because it comes with a host of desirable upgrades like the full body kit, fog lights, luggage rack, slotted appearance taillights, and the later/sporty five-spoke 16-inch alloys. It really has a speedy look that lives up to the GT name, right down to the red trim that encircles the whole body. The white roof continues the premium look against the white paint, but for real distinction, youre going to want to take it down. After all, a red interior has a true sports car appeal. This looks especially clean, and anyone who wears shorts knows the advantage of having a cloth interior in a convertible. Not only will those bucket seats not burn your legs, but also they have true sports car bolstering and power lumbar adjustments. There are more great features, like power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and full gauges with large speedo and tach. Theres even factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to fully return function.) But the features we know youre going to love the best are the power windows and power convertible top. Together, they mean you dont even have to leave the drivers seat to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience. The fuel-injected 5.0-liter is heart that made these Fox-body Mustangs a true legend. These V8s are a favorite because they mix overbuilt performance with serious power right out of the box. Its also why there is a huge aftermarket for upgrades. But this car seems to revel in its stock appearance. Thats why everything shows signs of originality, and the odometer is even believed to reflect the cars actual mileage. And what makes this one even more desirable is the control you get with the five-speed manual transmission. Add in power steering, power brakes with front discs, rear sway bar, and BF Goodrich performance tires, and it creates a terrific all around drop-top machine. This Mustang looks great, runs smooth, and its priced right. So if you love a great drop-top classic, call today!!!
