2005 Mustang

2005MustangWhat has made the Mustang so popular over the past 40 years? Bang for the buck. No other car made offers so much performance, image, and aura for anywhere near the price of a Mustang. It's the quintessential American performance car from the 1960s, updated only enough to keep the makers of government emissions and safety legislation happy. The classic formula works… a relatively small car with a powerful engine, preferably a V8, in front, driving the rear wheels. No, it's not sophisticated, but high-tech sophistication is not the point of a Mustang. There are plenty of high-powered, high-revving, front-wheel drive, four-cylinder cars out there but the Mustang does not compete with them. At the moment, it doesn't compete with anything. It's a Mustang!!!

2005MustangIt may be hard to believe, but, although it was strengthened and modified over the course of its life, the previous-generation Mustang's chassis structure dated back to the Ford Fairmont of the late 1970s. And after a quarter-century, it was more than a little out of date. So Ford did the right thing, and came up with an entirely new chassis structure for the 2005 models. It's much more rigid, for improved handling and less noise, and has a longer wheelbase for both increased stability and greater interior room. The base-model V6 now is a 4.0-liter single overhead cam unit with 210 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, not much below the output of the V8 model not long ago. The GT gets the newest version of the 4.6-liter V8, now with a lightweight aluminum block and other modifications for less weight and more power - as in 300 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque.

The new Mustang is more evolutionary than revolutionary, but that's in its favor. Exotic materials and technologies are notable by their absence. Yes, the V8's engine block is now aluminum, but that is hardly unusual today. The same goes for the overhead cams. You won't see any exotic metals or composite bodywork and the rear suspension is still a solid axle, although Ford has done all the right things to tame it. If the specs aren't exotic, neither is the price.

Ever since the glory days of the old 5.0-liter, the GT is all about performance the classic American way - a big V8 in front driving the rear wheels. This one not only goes, it stops and handles remarkably well, too. The newest Mustang has the looks, it has the sound and power, and it's as comfortable and civilized as a Mustang could be. The legend grows.

This 2005 Mustang GT features many add-ons to better handling, overall performance and visual appeal. Underhood appointments include chrome valve covers, polished intake with high flow K&N filter, larger throttle body, underdrive pulley system, BBK stainless short tube headers with full Basani exhaust, Corsa resonators and a ZEX nitrous system. Interior upgrades include, push button start, 3 gauge a-pillar pod, integrated shift light and Ford Motorsport led sill plates. Suspension upgrades include a full Roush suspension system with sub-frame connectors and upgraded brakes. Nitto drag radials complete the vehicle getting all the power down to the ground. Exterior modifications include a carbon fiber 4” cowl induction hood, billet upper and lower grille, side scoops, window louvers and a Roush wing. The original double black vinyl stripes were removed in favor of a painted silver stripe based on the Shelby Super Snake.
