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

The 1997 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra has a lot of appeal. Its a low-mileage stunner with the window sticker documentation for collectors. And for the drivers, its hard to beat the DOHC V8 with the five-speed manual. And no matter which side youre on, you get to do it all for an affordable price. A low mileage coupe like this instantly distinguishes itself with a crisp look of well-respected body panels. The other reason why this one can grab your attention so quickly is because the original Rio Red has been cared for quite nicely. It has the kind of gloss and shine that really loves to show off the sleek coupes lines. And the big polished presentation is only heightened by the bright 17-inch SVT wheels. What is SVT? Thats Fords Special Vehicles Team. They are not only the ones responsible for all the great design touches like the unique fascia, hood scoops, and coiled snake badges, but they also engineered this coupe to have the performance to back up its sporty image. Step inside, and this Cobra gets to show you its dark side. The combination of black leather with red exterior is a timelessly attractive combo, and you can easily tell this car was babied for its low mileage lifetime. The leather looks amazing, and even the drivers bucket its supple and complete. The Cobra got just about every comfort and convenience option in the Mustang catalog as standard equipment from the factory. So the driver gets a great performance package that includes white-faced analog gauges, a leather-wrapped wheel, cruise control, power seat, and a five-speed stick shift. Plus, theres power windows, power locks, keyless entry, provisions for air conditioning (may need a recharge,) and the upgraded premium factory Mach 460 AM/FM/cassette stereo with separate CD player. This modern classic also lets you take advantage of safety features like dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. Since this car has been so well cared for thus far, it should be no surprise that its the engine bay has an ultra-tidy look. This is 4.6-liter modular V8, and its believed to be original to the car. It is the performance-oriented DOHC 32-valve unit. That means plenty of low-end power and the kind of V8 muscle to hustle even at highway speeds. Theres a huge aftermarket supply, but this highly original package has been preserved to be fresh, clean, and a well-maintained representation of the finest from Ford. The five-speed manual transmission snaps through the gears easily, and the SVT upgraded the chassis to make it worthy of the Cobra name. Helping corral all this performance is the power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy BF Goodrich performance tires. Youll love everything about the collectability from the included window sticker to the factory markings still visible in the undercarriage. And youll also love the driving fun of a five-speed Cobra. So its a great total package that you need to make yours today. Call now!
