289 cubic inch V8 with a 2-barrel carburetor and 200 horsepower. You’re in luck, because that’s what’s in there today. Looking quite tidy under the hood, it brings a fat torque curve to the game which makes this Mustang far more entertaining to drive. With chrome valve covers and a matching air cleaner, it has a neo-GT look and those fender braces do make a noticeable improvement in front-end stiffness. It’s backed by a C4 3-speed automatic transmission and an 8-inch rear end which are rugged enough to handle the V8’s horsepower, and the car has been fitted with power steering that makes it very easy to handle. The underside of the car is remarkably clean and there’s a new gas tank and a recent dual exhaust system hanging out back.
