2005 Ford Mustang Premium 2dr Convertible (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
I sold off my '76 Corvette for the '05 Ford Mustang convertible. It is a true sports car with a back seat and a trunk. Though a little tight, it's more than i had before. Ford finally got the looks right. the Mustang II look is over. This is straight out of the Sixties! The 4.0L/210 h.p. pulls good with the 5 speed transmission. Iif you can afford $6.00 more per fill up go 4.6L/300 hp, you'll get an extra muffler too). Well built and handles well for stock suspension. I'm impressed. Go test drive one for yourself.
I got the premium v-6 with all the options. Came that way from the lot. Plus a couple of extras. Look at brochure at a dealership. Black paint, tan interior/convertible and spinners. Hard not to look at it!
Instrument cluster looks similar to '65. Hard to see during the day. Needs back lighting.
