Right now, it proudly resides in the inventory of Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Garage Kept Motors, with lots of documentation (including a Marti report) and 94,933 miles (152,780 km) on the odometer, according to the dealership’s description. While purists might want to run amuck and cry their Blue Oval hearts out, sensible enthusiasts will understand that classic looks do not also need to equal crappy road manners.
Thus, what we have here is a stunning Grabber Blue ‘Stang that wants the next owner to fully enjoy the contemporary upgrades with the wind in their hair. Among the update highlights, we can easily notice the high-performance tires, the 302ci V8 that was stroked to 347 cubic inches, an MSD ignition system, Ford Racing spark plug wires, and Mickey Thompson valve covers. Plus, there are also “numerous suspension improvements, including sway bars and the steering rack,” as well as “upgraded front brakes.”
Alas, one needs not to worry about the classic atmosphere – that one is also diligently covered with the Trans Am racecar-inspired aero elements, Torq Thrust-style wheels, or the “white-faced gauges” and “gorgeous wood-rimmed steering wheel” that are tucked inside, among others. Naturally, there is just one issue standing in the way of feisty summer road trips. And that would be the rather steep $44,900 asking price, of course.
