The GT350 name was originally used on the Fastback Mustang from the first generation and it was put to pasture after the 1970 model year. However, for the 20th Anniversary of the Mustang, the product planners at Ford pulled out the GT350 name an put it on a 35 day production run (5261 cars). This new GT350 had no affiliation with Shelby, but it was only available in Oxford White and included 10 more horsepower from the carburetor fed 5.0 V8 (only the automatic transmission equipped version got fuel injection for whatever reason) and it included the TRX handling package. The original TRX metric sized 390mm wheels (I hope Ford fired whoever decided that was a good idea) and white paint are gone…and this thing is covered in a shade of fungus-infected-toenail beige ™. Despite the paint…and salvage title…I like it. Find this 1984 Ford Mustang GT350 5-Speed offered for $13,500 in Oakland, CA via craigslist.

The Fox body Mustang was a huge breath of fresh air when it was released in 1979 and it returned the Mustang to a proper long-hood short-rear pony car shape. I think that the design has aged well and if you are looking for an inexpensive convertible that’ll seat 4 people and be fun to drive…it doesn’t get much better than a well preserved Fox.

My dad told me to write about an American car for the 4th of July, so I looked on craigslist and this one was a definite winner for a number of reasons. One is that it is a Mustang which, to me, is the most patriotic car you could get. It is basically a muscle […]
It’s hard to believe that the Fox Body Mustang is 41 years old….well not today’s example, but it is 31 and not exactly a spring chicken. Let me put that in perspective…imagine you are living in 1989 (that’s not that much of a stretch) and you tried to daily drive a Ford from 1958…or even […]
The 6th generation of the Ford Mustang was released for the 2015 model year with a new aggressive body style (it looks so much wider than the previous gen, but it was only 1.5 inches wider and 1.4 inches lower) and an independent rear end for the first time for the original pony car. Ford […]
Sun Tzu is probably first famous writer to be quoted as saying; In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity — but this concept is not new or un-repeated by other folks. It is certainly true in the age of the coronavirus..and while I hate to be a vulture…there is a good reason to buy […]
This next car comes as a tip from Erik202 who writes: I have a strange desire to own one of these, I don’t know exactly what it is, I am generally not drawn to things with the blue oval stuck to them but there was one that ran at the local dragstrip when i was a […]
This next car was inspired by DT tipper BP who wrote: Aren’t these on the $ way up now? SVO Mustang and included a link to an 86 SVO that was offered for $13,500 on Hemmings, and these two articles on Hemmings and Hagerty talking about the future collectability and current market of the SVO. […]
I’ve always been a moderate fan of Ford’s Fox-body Mustang — it does offer a decent platform with manual gearboxes, rear-wheel-drive, and V8 power — but with an emphasis on the later models that offer fuel injected engines and more power…but recently I’ve become obsessed with the quad-headlight Fox models…because..well…more is more. Find this 1983 Ford […]
