For Sale: 2004 Ford Mustang in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Yesterday and today, there's still no bigger bang for the buck than the Ford Mustang. Whether it's an early pony or this handsome 2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1, you get a ton of V8 performance and style for not a lot of cash. With just 66,217 original miles and virtually zero modifications on this special-edition Mach 1 package, this is a well-maintained modern Mustang that's ready to enjoy every day or just on those special occasions when the sun is shining.

Slotted firmly in between the performance-and-appearance pecking order of the Mustang GT and the Mustang SVT Cobra, the Mach 1 was a limited-edition version of the SN-95 platform Mustang, and it was only offered for two years. 2004 was your last chance to get one of these rare birds, and I dare you to find more performance, exclusivity, pedigree, and flat-out fun than this for less than $24K. The New Edge styling has aged rather well over time and this Mustang looks aggressive without being dated and thanks to excellent maintenance, it looks like it should be far more expensive than it is. The Dark Shadow Gray paint (one of only 7 colors for the '04 Mach 1s) is the right choice for a Mustang, not too flashy but appealing enough that people are going to ask what color it is when you stop at red lights. Coupled with the big shaker hood scoop and decal, ground effects, rear spoiler and lower valance, and special badging, it's the perfect medium between the subdued GT and aggressive Cobra. It's been washed and waxed regularly, just like a collector car would be, and although there are some signs of use and age, it still looks darn good when it's bombing down the road. For an almost 20-year-old car (yikes, that make me feel old), this is one good looking driver. The bumpers are in good shape, the rockers haven't been blasted away by gravel, and all the black trim is dark, not completely oxidized by the sun. You also get further styling details, including blacked-out mirrors, quarter panel scoops, and darkly tinted windows, not to mention fog lamps and a set of taillights that are an obvious tribute to the original. And the coup-de-gras are the super-cool '40th Anniversary' Mustang badges on the front fenders and decklid.

The handsome black leather interior is far more comfortable and functional than anything they could have dreamed of in the first Mach 1 in 1969, it's in really solid condition still today. The driver's seat shows the most marks, as you might expect, with the bolsters taking the brunt of the damage, but the rest of the soft stuff inside is pretty darn solid. No dryness or cracking in the dash, no split seams in the seat inserts, and no blistering in the door panels that comes from sitting in the hot sun. It's obviously been used inside, but you can tell this has almost always been a 'single-manned' machine. The gray stripe in the seatbacks is a nod to the first Mach 1 design (although we'd probably preferred to see it dyed red like most of the originals), the steering wheel is grippy, comfortable modern unit, and Mach 1 script in the center console and floor mats remind everyone that this is no V6 grocery-getter. It feels very upscale inside, with loads of options including cold A/C, power windows/locks/mirrors, cruise control, tilt wheel, and a stock Mach 1-spec AM/FM/CD changer stereo that sounds great. Most of all, the brushed-aluminum shift knob atop the 5-speed shifter sets the tone inside, practically taunting the driver to get inside and pound through the gears. There's even a decent-sized back seat and functional trunk that makes this a car that works in the real world, not just on weekends.

Ford's 4.6 liter 'mod' DOHC V8 needs no introduction, and by the time this car was built, it was belting out 305 horsepower with that familiar Mustang V8 rumble. It's buttery smooth and bulletproof reliable, and it's all stock under the hood, including the giant Shaker-style scoop up top. In addition, the 2004 models got bare aluminum Mach 1 valve covers to replace the blacked-out units from the year before, that lone upgrade instantly makes this engine bay more exciting. That's good news, because you know it hasn't been raced or abused and if you need repairs, you can follow the factory manual to get it done right. It's backed by a quick-shifting 5-speed manual transmission that makes it surprisingly thrifty on the highway (you can probably expect low-20s if you're not mashing the throttle) and the Mach's capable Macpherson independent front and four-bar link rear suspension makes it a lot of fun when the road starts to twists. There's a flat torque curve that is always standing by to launch the car into the next corner and power 4-wheel disc brakes are powerful enough to scrub just about any amount of speed without drama. Special 17-inch cast-aluminum wheels do a great impression of vintage Torque Thrusts but are wearing modern-sized Falken performance radials with plenty of tread left.

A lifetime warm-weather (CA and TX) car with a clean history and great maintenance, this Mach 1 offers a ton of performance for not a lot of cash. Call now!
