Since I recently drove a 1994 Mustang GT across the U.S., I will give some impressions: it is still quicker than most cars on the road up to about 90 mph (I had the occasion to pass a lot of cars on the highway), still smooth and reliable, still understeers a bit too much on onramps, and the rear only stays planted on smooth roads. The newer Mustangs (especially 2011 models) are much better, and many family cars nowadays have more high end horsepower, but the 1994 still has satisfying low end torque and is amazingly reliable. I have always done the maintenance on my dad's car, and it has never had any of the issues which plagued my Jaguars and Corvettes.

Yep the famous small block 302. Ford slightly exagerated calling it 5.0.

For Ford OHV 302 V8 (known as "5.0" even though it isn't)

Displacement
4942 cm³ = 301.579 in³(4942cc rounds to 4.9L. 301.579 ci rounds to 302ci)

Bore x Stroke (numbers are rounded off)
4.004" X 3.0028"
(101.6 mm X 76.0 mm)

@NIN what is the precise displacement in cubic centimeters (cc)?

Displacement is a bit off. It is 302ci, not 299.

The 4.9L is correct.

My father just moved to California and we drove his 1994 Mustang 3600 miles, visiting relatives along the way. The car was perfect the whole way.

My father owns one of these. We used it briefly for Solo II competition in 1997 or thereabouts. Too much understeer going into corners. Bumpy corners made the rear skid sideways into oversteer. Plenty of low end torque made it fun. It still drives very well today and has had excellent reliability.
