The story of these cars is the legendary 5.0 Litre engine. Measuring 302 cubic inches on the Imperial scale, it is known for its thunderous growl, heard through the stock Flowmaster exhaust system. Though its horsepower rating, at 225, is much lower than modern Mustangs, combining with the 300 lb.-ft. of torque ensures the driver gets to his destination with alacrity, if desired. This example adds to the powerful feel by mating the engine to the 5-speed manual. Power gets sent to the rear wheels. Not known for fuel economy, as with most performance cars, it is a saver at the pump because it runs on 87 octane gasoline – rare for a performance car.
Inside the car is well-optioned. The leather has stood the test of time well, better than most Mustang vinyl and cloth of the era. This is the first year of an air bag for the model. Power top, power windows, power locks and power lumbar are optioned. Cruise control, original factory AM/FM/cassette and air conditioning make for comfortable interior surroundings.
In 2020, the car was treated to new head gaskets – a major job, the work order for which is included in the gallery. Other work in the past two years includes a new power window motor, air conditioning work including recharge and dryer (a/c blows cold), new water pump, new timing cover gasket set, rad hoses, new coolant level sensor, driver door and headlight switch. New floor mats and moulding trim stripe (2021) are also in place. Other documentation in the gallery includes a genuine Marti report for the car as well as original manuals and receipt for the spare trunk lid, owner even still has his fuel receipts.
Beyond the original 15” turbines and extra trunk lid, also included in the sale are a car cover, original floor mats, a fresh “Cobra” sticker for the trunk lid (as pictured in the incumbent) and two sets of keys. There is a clean Carfax included in the gallery. While it raises the possibility of odometer discrepancies, the owner believes these to be attributable to clerical error. No accidents or damage are noted on the Carfax.
