A 1999 Ford Mustang GT with shining paint and a leather interior with cold A/C makes for a nice modern classic. Of course, what really has you looking at this one is the beastly supercharged V8 and all the hardy supporting components that make this a street-eating performance car.
Ford celebrated the 35th anniversary of the Mustang in a big way, that goes way beyond the cool special badges. 1999 was a redesign that toughened up the looks, with sharper bodylines and new more aggressive touches. So that makes for the ideal modern classic to upgrade. The bold black scoop with redline stands out distinctively from the well-kept Silver Metallic paint. And in back there's an upgraded spoiler and more blacked-out treatment on the trunk and rear valance. And a nice midpoint between the black and silver are the pewter 17-inch SVT alloys. So this one has a very sharp look that gives plenty of clues to the upgraded power within.
Buying a modern classic also means getting more modern conveniences. The leather bucket seats used in this generation are arguably the best-looking factory seats ever offered in a Mustang, and the driver can power adjust it to the perfect comfort position. These even has the essential running horse emblem embroidered as a tribute to the original "Pony Package" cars 35 years prior. There are plenty of great features like power windows, cruise control, and power door locks. And because it's a modern classic there are great factory features you don't get from older vehicles like dual airbags, Mach 460 AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD player, and keyless entry. Plus, the air conditioner runs on modern R134a for easy servicing. And as you look over the whole interior, you start to get the tingle that comes from all the right performance upgrades. You now have white-faced gauges. The panel surrounding them has been replaced with a carbon fiber unit that incorporates a space for boost and intercooler readouts. Plus, that Hurst shifter is just calling out for your right hand.
One look under the hood, and you know exactly why this Mustang has all these speedy upgrades. The GT's 4.6-liter V8 has an Eaton M90 series II supercharger on top. Plus, this hardy V8 has been enhanced and reinforced further with a Chicane 3.5 cold air cold air intake, 99mm mass air flow sensor, Ford Racing 42lb fuel injectors, SVT fuel pump, Accufab 75MM throttle body, and a Cobra radiator. And the full package has been optimized with a DiabloSport tune. Not only was Ford's modular V8 built robust enough for these upgrades, but so was the five-speed manual transmission. So you have a stout and speedy machine. Plus, with power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, grippy Nitto Extreme ZR tires, and sway bars front & rear, this is a coupe built for performance.
The sale comes with the original window sticker, warranty card, owner's manual, maintenance records, and photos from when this GT was upgraded into elite sports car status. This is a powerful and sleek Mustang that commands attention. And at a price like this, it commands your attention right now!
