This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a late-model fifth-generation Mustang that not only looks the part, but has also had a lot of money spent ensuring it performs exceptionally well.
With the standard engine being replaced in 2021 with a very low mileage 2016 unit, it has since been upgraded and tuned to perfection by well-regarded specialists. It is now in outstanding mechanical condition and ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.
The History and Paperwork
Imported from Dubai in 2020, the car seemingly previously spent time on the salt-free roads of Japan
Purchased as a project by the current owner in 2021, it has since been through a process of extensive mechanical refurbishment and upgrades
Engine replaced with 2016 unit with only 7780 miles
All recent mechanical work and upgrades have been completed by renowned Mustang tuners IPG classics and M & E Performance
All original owner’s handbooks and documentation present
Extensive receipts for parts and upgrades from the car’s time in both Dubai and the UK
V5 log book present in the owner’s name
Ford Mustang Performance aftershave and shower gel kit is a charming piece of memorabilia
Very original and unmodified interior is generally in excellent condition throughout
Dashboard and centre console bear no major scratches or damage
Front seats are in good condition with only minor signs of wear
Rear seats are in very good shape and look barely used
Switchgear is in good condition with all features said to be functional
Retro-styled gauge cluster is unmarked
Steering wheel is in decent order though bears some visible marks and signs of age
Door cards, carpets and headlining are in great condition

Genuine Ford Mustang rubber floor mats
Boot area is clean and tidy apart from some scratches to the plastics. A rubber boot mat has been fitted to protect the carpets
Some paintwork has peeled away on the bottom of the doors
There is a noticeable paintwork blemish on the passenger side door sill
The desirable black leather interior of this Mustang has held up very well, with all of the major components bearing only minor signs of ageing. It has clearly been taken care of over the years, and cleans up very nicely.
Bodywork is in excellent order with no major damage to report
Blue metallic paintwork is also very nice although there are several blemishes across the front valance which are evidenced in the photographs
1960s-inspired stripes and decals really make this a unique sight on the road
Exterior glass, mirrors, headlights and taillights are all in near-perfect condition
20-inch alloy wheels look great and set the car off particularly well, though all wheels bear some scratches and marks
Noticeable paint chip on the lower part of the driver’s door
Further stone chips on the side-mounted air intakes
Underbody is in excellent shape with no visible signs of corrosion
Overall the condition of the exterior is very nice throughout, with only the usual stone chips and a handful of paintwork blemishes as the most noticeable defects. These are not commensurate with the car’s age and mileage.
