Ford introduced a re-designed 2005 model year Mustang at the 2004 North American International Auto Show that was based on the new D2C platform. Developed under the direction of Chief Engineer Hau Thai-Tang, a veteran engineer for Ford’s IndyCar program under Mario Andretti, and exterior styling designer Sid Ramnarace. The fifth-generation Mustang’s styling echoes the fastback Mustang models of the late-1960s.
For the 2005 to 2010 production years, the base model was powered by a 210bhp cast-iron block 4.0 L SOHC V6, while the GT used an aluminum block 4.6 L SOHC 3-valve Modular V8 with variable camshaft timing that produced 300bhp. Base models had a Tremec T5 5-speed manual transmission with Ford’s 5R55S 5-speed automatic being optional. Automatic GTs also featured this, but manual GTs had the Tremec TR-3650 5-speed.
This menacing looking Mustang has benefitted from a full makeover by specialists, Cervini, which the vendor tells us included a supercharger and uprated suspension. Presented in bronze with black interior, this car has a reported 30,000 miles showing on the odometer and is described to be in an overall good condition throughout. A true American muscle car with that iconic Fastback line.
