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
The 2001 Ford Mustang GT convertible is true black beauty. And its not just that you get the full midnight package, but also that this droptop has everything you want, including a loaded A/C interior, fuel-injected V8 power, and the control of a five-speed stick-shift. This pony car is done just the way you want a modern classic. The factory Ebony black still has the high-gloss luster that tells you it has been treated with respect. So it will fill you with pride when you show this one off in the sunshine (thats what convertibles are for, right?) But this one also looks good with the top up, because the black roof not only adds to the cars midnight attitude, but also it has been treated with the same level of respect. It has all the aggressive pieces you love about a GT, like the hood scoop and full-width rear spoiler. Plus, the upgraded polished Cobra wheels add to the intimidation factory as well as this cars shine. As much as we like the look of this one with the roof up, a convertible is meant to be open to the world, and this one doesnt disappoint. After all, the factory Dark Charcoal has that same dark attitude as the rest of the car, and when the light hits it right, it looks like a matte black against the shiny black exterior. This is setup to be a drivers machine with leather bucket seats up front, a grippy sports steering wheel, full gauge package, and a stick shift thats the perfect place to put your right hand. And the addition of the roll hoop makes it look like this one is ready for the racetrack. And more than just look sporty, this is loaded with all the best features. It includes cruise control, power locks, dual airbags, and an upgraded Alpine AM/FM stereo with USB input to plug in your phone. 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. Plus, you can do this and stay cool all through the summer thanks to R134A air conditioning. Under the hood is the Ford famous 4.6-liter motor. This takes the reputation of the 5.0s adaptability and applies it to a V8 built for the modern fuel-injected era. So this one has been given some nice power upgrades, like an Accufab polished aluminum throttle body and cold air intake. When you look under this car, youll not only spot an upgrade to subframe connectors for strength, but also a glasspack-style X-pipe dual exhaust that gives you a terrific high-octane sound. Best of all, you are in complete control of this enhanced fuel-injected power and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Add in power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, and this is the slick pony car thats easy to enjoy everywhere. This is the dark pony droptop youve always wanted. So hurry up before some else picks up this very obtainable GT. Call today!!!
