Mustang GT 35th Anniversary
$172.55 Per Month
ONLY 27K MILES, 35TH ANNIVERSARY GT VERT, ALL STOCK, 5 SPEED, TINTED WINDOWS
For the 35th anniversary of the Mustang, Ford put out a limited run of pretty special Mustang GT convertibles. This is one of the nicer ones we've seen, showing just 26,857 original miles and having led the kind of easy life that we dream of on any collector car we buy. And as a Mustang, it's equally important that it isn't modified and hasn't been raced, making this the perfect addition to your Mustang collection.
In 1999, if you wanted a special Mustang, you bought a GT then added the $2695 54Y option group, which transformed the garden-variety GT into something truly special. The Performance Red paint was unique to the Anniversary model and only 2310 Anniversary convertibles built and only 1555 were Performance Red, so in today's mass-production terms, this is a very rare bird. It's also very well preserved, with a brilliant shine and zero evidence of wrecks or bodywork in its history report, so it feels almost like a new car. Details like the blacked-out hood scoop, special rear wing (which was unique to the Anniversary models), and the honeycomb tail section all recall Mustangs of the past and look great on the modern shape. The chin spoiler hasn't been abused by steep driveways and the lower cladding with stripes along the rockers give the GT a long, low look that still looks great today, 15 years later. Ford nailed the look, making it special without going overboard.
The two-tone silver and black leather interior was another part of the 54Y option group and it works very well in the drop-top pony. The leather is in great shape, with only some minor comfort marks on the driver's lower seat cushion but no damage or cracking from the sun. The standard instrument panel got a matching silver insert with small 35th Anniversary lettering and a billet shifter knob was standard equipment in Anniversary cars with a 5-speed. It came loaded with just about every possible option, including A/C, power windows and locks, a power driver's seat, cruise control, a tilt wheel, and even a rear defroster in the convertible top. The original stereo is still in the center stack, cleverly modified for use with an iPod just by pressing the channel 5 button. The black convertible top fits well and the trunk looks completely unused.
Ford's sturdy 4.6 liter V8 is standard GT-spec but with 260 horsepower, it's hardly a slouch. Despite being a favorite of tuners and there being a vast catalog of speed parts available, this one is completely stock so it runs beautifully and doesn't hold any surprises for the new owner. The engine bay is extremely clean and obviously hasn't seen any inclement weather and it's original right down to the hose clamps. With just 26,000 miles on it, it's barely broken-in and the car feels quite fresh and new on the road. The 5-speed manual transmission shifts easily and has well-spaced ratios for exciting driving, yet cruises easily on the highway and pulls down decent fuel economy. And while a lot of Mustang owners are tempted by the roar of an aftermarket exhaust, this one remains stock so it has a bit of a burble but never gets annoying. Special Anniversary wheels with gray inserts give it a unique look and carry recent performance radials.
This Anniversary Mustang also includes all the spiffs that came with the car, including a key chain and other memorabilia. An affordable way to get a limited-edition car that's sure to become collectable in the coming years. Call now!
