Description

2001 Ford Mustang Convertible

New Edge, this is a code name for the 1999-2004 Mustang. They are technically SN-95s and were still built on Ford's Fox platform. This was a term used to classify the later SN-95 Mustang's redesign in 1999 that featured sharper edges than the previous Mustangs. The 1994-1998 Mustang's soft body lines were replaced with sharp, edgy body lines. While still being classified as an SN-95 Mustang, this vehicle took on a great new look while getting a small engine upgrade and interior features to match. As mentioned before, the exterior was much sharper than the previous Mustang giving a meaner look to the 1999-2004 Mustangs. While Ford carried over the 4.6L motor, a "performance increased" cylinder head was used to squeeze more power out of the 2-valve motor. The interior had minor upgrades but stayed mostly unchanged. While the Saleen and the SVT Cobra were carried over, Ford also brought back the Bullitt and Mach 1!

The third year of this generation of the venerable Mustang, this New Edge style convertible, painted in sinister black with hand painted flames, new 17" aluminum wheels, charcoal leather interior and a reliable 3.8 Liter V6 to power you down the highways and byways. Pony up and put the top down on this flamed horse and gallop off into the sunset.

Exterior
In keeping with tradition, Mustang designers carry over several design cues on every generation they produce, and this one is no exception. With a more rounded design, shades of the ones that came before them with recognizable headlights now smoothed into the front end, and the central grille with the galloping horse badge in the center. A long hood starts out in painted flames that lick back the hood with a slight indent leading back to a faux scoop then onto the swept back windshield. From this top of the swept back windscreen point, the canvas takes over and presents in black with no tears or blemishes and a clear glass rear window, but we do note the top to windshield frame seal is poking out when the top is closed. Being power activated, it is an easy up and down thanks to a new top motor and top cylinders. More flames decorate the front bumper and fire back the fenders into the doors and have another earlier cue in the hockey stick cove which is in the beginnings of the rear quarter on this model where the newer respray of black fully takes over the body. On the back is a small but effective spoiler, and a now integrated curved trio of rear taillights, (think 1964-1/2!), with a large rear neoprene bumper and a large MUSTANG embossment in orange along with Yosemite Sam and the age old trucker line "Back Off!" finishes off the back. Multi-spoke polished and black finished 17" wheels with new rubber are on all 4 corners and this completes our tour of the exterior.

Interior
Nicely curved molded door panels house the power window, power lock and power mirror toggles and controls and have a built-in speaker to boot. The dark charcoal shows up on these panels along with some charcoal carpet and even a black panel for the buttons. Aged, wrinkled and slightly smudged charcoal bucket seats have just the right amount of slight creases and folds like easily aged leather tends to do. These have high backs and rounded headrests for extra protection, as well as an embroidered gray galloping pony. The 2 plus 2 rear seat is in the back and has a surprising amount of room, making the climb back there worthwhile for the ride. Black carpet floods the floors and is clean and in the center a console runs up to the dash. At their meeting point is a curvaceous panel which houses the double-DIN JVC AM/FM/CD stereo that is Bluetooth and Pandora capable, temp controls, and A/C venting, rises gracefully to form dual eyebrows for the instruments and glove box/airbag dash. More charcoal is used here as well. The instruments are a single panel with analog gauges which reside nicely under half of that curved dash top.

Drivetrain
Under that faux scooped hood is an original 3.8-liter V6. This mill has EFI on top and a 4R70W 4-speed automatic transmission on back. Rear wheels are driven by a Ford 7.5-inch 3.27 conventional rear axle. The engine bay condition is overall dusty with a coating of patina on most surfaces.

Undercarriage
Nearly just the way it left the assembly line in Detroit with non-undercoated floor pans and unibody. The only rust we see is surface corrosion on the untreated components with some of it rather heavy toward the rear of the car. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners with the fronts being new, and we see a newer dual exhaust system with Flow FX mufflers Flowmaster. Providing the ride is an independent coil spring front suspension and in the rear a 4 link and coil spring arrangement.

Drive-Ability
This car started right up and I flipped the top down and it was off to the sunny test track. Here it had nice acceleration, a throaty sound, and good handling and braking. It is a comfortable car to drive, and with all functions working, it could handle a long cruise with ease and comfort.

If you've been looking for an entry level classic take a close look at this 2001 version. Not perfect but a real looker with the flames and custom wheel and tire package, 3.8-liter, automatic transmission, and convertible. Insert key, turn, go and enjoy this future collectible now!
