2003 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
The launch of the 1994 model year of the Ford Mustang was arguably
the moment that the vehicle propelled itself into the era of
"modern cars". After years of anticipation that had fans eagerly
awaiting the next generation, the fourth generation, internally
known by the code SN95, finally debuted. The shift away from the
boxiness of the Foxbody marked a deliberate transformation into
contemporary design. The 1999 model year brought about a mid-cycle
refresh just in time for the new millennium. The 1999-2004 Mustangs
are referred to as "New Edge'', which was Ford's global design
language during that time period. Though still technically SN95
models, some refer to them solely as much.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
