The legendary 5.0-liter V8 needs no introduction, and once you slide behind the wheel and fire up this torque factory, you’ll understand why these cars continue to be wildly popular today. There are some minor bolt-ons like a BBK cold air induction system, a polished Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition system, and tubular exhaust headers, so it runs well and still feels awfully fast on the street. The engine and transmission were both rebuilt at 88k miles and while they had it open they installed new roller rockers and a Comp Cams E303 cam for a little extra performance boost. Thanks to the giant aluminum radiator up front, it never complains about the summer heat and the BBK tubular strut tower braces front and rear and subframe connectors make a noticeable difference in chassis rigidity. The underside is shockingly clean, so you know this car’s had it easy, and flashy chrome Cobra R-style wheels are stuffed into the fenders and carry 245/45/17 performance radials.
