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
Limited Production 3,251 Mile ASC/McLaren Roadster 5.0L V8 Automatic A/C /// The highest known VIN of all ASC/McLaren Mustangs produced, this pristine survivor is believed to be the final ASC/McLaren roadster to roll off the assembly line. The car is 1 of only 65 roadsters produced for the 1990 model year, and, as you might expect, received wholly unique Royal Blue and Azura Blue Pearlescent over Crystal Blue and Shadow Blue aesthetics. Astute viewers will note the absence of wear on virtually all the cars components, since its spent an entire lifetime being pampered by two fastidious owners in climate-controlled storage. And today, this silver-tinged Ford is offered as an incredible, 3,249-mile time capsule thats 100% original all the way down to its wiper blades and Goodyear Gatorback tires. Pop the hood and youll find a venerable 5.0 liter Windsor block that twists a stout 220 horsepower into an even 300 lb./ft. of torque. That hot five-oh funnels grunt to an original AOD 4-speed, which appropriates power to a Ford 8.8-inch axle thats finished with a posi-traction differential and aggressive, 3.27 gears. That drivetrain rolls in an aggressive, 1.5-inch lower stance that was engineered by the pros at McLaren. When the time comes to slow down, a familiar combination of power-assisted discs and drums gets the job done efficiently. Naturally, power rack-and-pinion steering is present and accounted for. At the corners, attractive ASC/McLaren alloys spin original 225/60VR15 Goodyear Eagle VR60s. Between the doors, multi-adjustable sport seats wear 2-tone ASC/McLaren covers. In front of the driver, an airbag-equipped steering wheel leads a pliable, crack-free dash. Beneath that dash, a custom ASC/McLaren console frames a simple shifter. The tunes keep bumping thanks to a premium tape deck and big Kenwood speakers. And optional ASC Whistle Spectrum radar detection keeps the good times rolling. Looking for an exclusive modern Mustang?
