Description

For consignment, a New Edge Mustang GT right out of the 2003 model year with lots of recent maintenance work, having new brakes, pads, a new top and freshly PA inspected, this car is ready to provide years of joy and service for its new owner.

Exterior
Miles deep black paint, with fog lamps, rear decklid spoiler, a sporty hood scoop, and a very raked windscreen have this car moving fast forward when it's standing still.  17” anthracite colored Bullitt wheels adorn all 4 corners, and these are wrapped by P245/45R17 rubber which are almost new.  The rear quarter panel scoops, and the iconic mustang side cove are exemplary of speed.  Factory paint work is noted and shows in the deep end of the pool over the sharp edges, neoprene bumpers and smooth sides.  Up top, a new black canvas convertible top with a glass rear window has recently been installed and lowers with the touch of a button.  Overall, a nice body not showing its 62,079 miles by far.  

Interior
Articulated sport dark charcoal leather bucket seats flank a center console that has a spacious glove box/armrest, cup holder, and the shifter for the 5-speed manual transmission.  These seats are showing some wear particularly in the driver's outer bolster in the form of wrinkles and color fade.  Conveniences include power windows, power mirrors, power locks, a leather wrapped steering wheel with remote controls for easy to use cruise control.  Factory air and an aftermarket Pioneer AM/FM/CD radio will make it that you'll never want to get out!  A twin arched dash harkens back to earlier generation Mustangs and displays well with multi-gauge instrument cluster in front of the driver and the glove box and airbag in front of the passenger.  Charcoal carpeting floods the floors and is protected by black Mustang embroidered carpeted mats.

Drivetrain
The 4.6Liter SOHC V8 engine with a Tremec T3650 5-speed manual transmission is seen within the near perfect engine bay.  This mill is fuel injected and fuel efficient to boot all the while making 260 tire shredding horses.  This combination sends power back to a Ford 8.8" rear axle weighing in with 3.27 TracLok gearing.

Undercarriage
The usual surface rust which is unremarkable and typical for an 03 Mustang is noted but the gray flooring and unibody remains solid.  Power rack and pinion steering, power disc brakes all around, and an independent coil spring front and 4 link with coil spring rear handling suspension are seen.  Last but not least a factory exhaust system snakes its way from the engine to the rear of the car and throws off a nice throaty sound when you goose it.

Drivability
This was a dual test driver car, and my cohort crack decoder and mechanical confidant took the wheel for our cruise.  Here we experienced all working functions, smooth acceleration, quick bias free stopping, and overall tight responsive feel and look from this GT drop top.  We found all functions to be operational and the drive-ability and its a blast to cruise the test track with the top down and the AC blasting.

This 'stang, which is an aero look but still harkening back to its roots with the triple tail lights, inset round interior gauges, and hockey stick coves on the doors, but still looks modern even though it is approaching 20 years of age.  All buttoned up and ready to take you off into the sunset...with the top down and a smile across your face.
