The Appeal

Mustang – the name alone conjures up mental images of sweeping curves, endless highways and road-trips accompanied by that iconic V8 burble. It’s the ultimate expression of classical Americana, and remains a hugely popular machine even outside of the US.

This late fourth generation car is presented with low mileage, in a handsome specification and with a hearty V8 powertrain. So it offers the looks, the power and the noise you’d expect from a Mustang, together with the ability to drop the top when the sun peeks out. If a fun, charismatic convertible is on your list, then this has to be worthy of your consideration.

The History and Paperwork

  • 2004MY car, imported from the US
  • First registered in the UK in January 2019
  • Three UK owners
  • Current owner since April 2022
  • 58,154 miles from new
  • Hardly used in recent months – less than 100 miles covered since February 2022
  • Private registration

The Interior

  • Handsome black leather upholstery shows well, with some light creasing and gentle wear, but no notable damage
  • Black carpeting presents nicely, with no threading or staining apparent
  • Practical 2+2 cabin layout offers plenty of room for luggage or occasional passengers
  • Electric windows and door mirrors
  • Air conditioning
  • Radio with 6CD changer
  • All of the trim and switchgear looks to be in good order, with nothing missing or significantly worn, as far as we could see
  • We’re told by the vendor that everything works as it should, with no faults or issues reported
  • The boot is generous for a convertible, trimmed with dark grey carpet and also contains a spacesaver spare wheel
  • On lifting the boot carpet, we can see that the boot floor and wheel well look to be in good condition, with no damage or corrosion we could identify

The Exterior

  • Subtle silver paintwork, overall in good order with a few minor chips and blemishes, but no major scuffs or damage on show
  • We did not that there seems to be a colour difference on the passenger side rear quarter, presumably from where the car has been previously repaired
  • The bodywork looks to be straight and tidy, with no notable corrosion or damage to be seen
  • Electrically operated black fabric roof, working as it should and looking to be in fine fettle other than a two-inch tear on the driver’s side
  • We did notice a little bubbling to the metal roof frame and latches
  • Upgraded headlights
  • The passenger side rear light is cracked, while the driver’s side rear light appears to be scuffed and misting up
  • The rest of the external trim and badging all appears to be present, correct and sound
  • Underneath the floor and sills look to be straight and undamaged
  • We did not quite a bit of surface corrosion to the drivetrain components – although we believe this to be mostly cosmetic as everything appears nice and solid
  • A full set of ‘Torq Thrust’ style alloy wheels are fitted, finished in gloss black and appearing to be in fine fettle with no kerb damage or lacquer peel in evidence
  • The wheels are shod with a matched set of tyres

The Mechanics

  • 4.6-litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine
  • Rear-wheel drive
  • Automatic transmission
  • Power-assisted steering
  • Cruise control
  • The engine bay looks nice and tidy, with no obvious issues and no modifications we could see
  • The car was given an oil and filter service in October 2022
  • We’re assured by the vendor that the car runs and drives very well, with no mechanical issues they are aware of


The chance to park a legend such as the Mustang on your driveway is too good to miss. This unmodified, handsomely specified car looks to be a fine, solid example. 

Presented with a fresh MOT and low mileage, we think this would be a great way to enjoy the sunshine this summer.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
