Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to present this prestine one of a kind 1 of 1 2005 Ford Mustang Yankee GT! Built in 2005 to be a contest prize during the Yankees game on June 9th, 2005. During this time when Ford had introduced the new body style Mustang, Ford had designed 60 Mustangs donning the new 4.0L V6, and were given to the team and managers. However, only ONE V8 was created and given off as a prize during the game. Secondary to the car, Derek Jeter had also personally autographed the dashboard, only adding to the value with Jeter entering the 3000 hits club, 5 Gold Gloves, 5 Championships, World Series MVP and 14 All-Star Appearances. With only 3,602 miles on the odometer, this Mustang is still entirely a collector vehicle. To start, the Mustang is a 2005 Mustang GT, complete with the newly introduced 4.6l 24v engine, capable of 310 horsepower and roughly 280 lb/ft of torque, this new body style was brought to be a complete throwback to the now legendary 1969 Mustang body style, with the large grille and fastback styled rear end. Mated to the engine is a 5-speed with overdrive transmission, also redesigned to incorporate more electronic shifting to allow for smoother, yet more precise shifting during heavy acceleration, and extremely smooth shifting while driving down the interstate. The cars computer began to adapt to the individual driver during this generation, so if you come with a lead foot, the computer begins to optimize the engine timing, fuel management and transmission shifting to accomodate for heavy throttle, and likewise for the average daily drivers. These cars were engineered to bring the muscle car era back from the smooth egg shaped cars of the 90's and this particular one was iconicized with the Yankee pinstripes and logo to remain a truly one of a kind machine. Options include A/C, AM/FM Radio, CD Player, CD Changer, Automatic Convertible Top, Cruise Control, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Windows, Anti-Lock Brakes, Tilt Wheel, Traction Control, Keyless Entry, Seat Belts, Driver's Airbag, Passenger Airbag, Anti-Theft System, Leather Interior, Aluminum/Alloy Wheels, Radial Tires, Numbers Matching Engine/Transmission, and of course, the full New York Yankees Package. This is literally a ONE OF A KIND MUSTANG and would make a great addition to a collection!
