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
1999 Ford Mustang Convertible A redesigned SN-95 Mustang came on December 26, 1998 for the 1999 model year with production starting in November 1998. Characterizing the redesign was Fords New Edge design language, which featured sharper contours, larger wheel arches, and creases in the bodywork, replacing many of the soft lines of the previous model. The Mustang also received new wheels and hubcaps. However, the car carried over the same roof line and interior, in addition to the same basic platform. All 1999 Mustangs (except the Cobra) received 35th-Anniversary badges on the front fenders. A 35th Anniversary Edition Convertible with 67,500 actual miles, and a 1-owner car. All maintenance records are available with this car, as well as the original window sticker. Exterior With the limited anniversary package of a hood scoop, special rear spoiler, unique rocker moldings, and a hood stripe, this car presents nicely in its 35th Anniversary glory. All covered in black 2 stage, resprayed in 2016, and add in a new canvas top, new lights, and we are out the door in a flash. Oh wait! Before we take off, throw on some American Racing Torq Thrust Anthracite wheels, wrapped with fresh BF Goodrich rubber, now we can successfully launch! Interior Custom embroidered bucket seats in two tone silver tuck and roll and black bolsters made from leather and vinyl, sit in the passenger compartment. Behind them is a 2+2 bench seat with the same configuration as the buckets. Power locks, windows and mirrors are seen on the door panels, and a nice light gray field holds a dark faced cluster of instruments. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD player is installed, and we note air conditioning, and steering mounted cruise controls. As for the stereo we have some steroids attached in the form of ADS speakers, and Precision Power Amps which reside in the trunk. Blast those tunes, we have to cover the sound of the engine! Drivetrain KISS (keep it simple stupid), does not apply here with numerous pipes, tubes and connections all working together on the 4.6 Liter SOHC V8. This amalgamation is electronically fuel injected and is attached to a 5-speed manual transmission. Add some 93 octane go juice and we just flew out the garage door. Undercarriage Nicely kept, with no real remarkable remarks to be made. We do see independent front suspension, and 4 link on the rear, power disc brakes on all 4 corners, and an 8.8 3.27 rear. Last but not least the dual exhaust which can also be music to your ears...if you turn the stereo down. Celebrate an anniversary.
