What is the 2004 Sports Edition?

I'm looking at a 2004 "Sports Edition" coupe, V6, 3.9L at a dealership. The salesman tells me the Sports Edition means that certain cool cosmetic features, like a hood scoop and spoiler, were added. But I can't find any information about it through google searches, mustang.com, even a search on Ford's website. Can anybody enlighten me? They're also asking about $1000 above Blue Book price. Is the higher price for a Sports Edition justified?

Re: What is the 2004 Sports Edition?

First off, I haven't heard of a 'sports package', however, there was a package known as the 'pony package', which offered some cosmetic upgrades and full ABS for that year. If the vehicle looks to be in above average condition for its year, all the fluids look clear (engine oil, brake, power steering, coolant, transmission oil) then it might be a compelling buy. Before you negotiate on a price if it is what you want, compare with other vehicles and print out what others are asking for similar vehicles, even without the 'sport' package. If it's a manual car, be sure to take it on a good test drive and try to include a gravel road. Why gravel? ...because this way is the best to see how tight the powertrain is without having to drive it too long and have the salesperson get mad at you. If there are no noticeable shakes or shudders and again, the mileage and condition of the vehicle are good for the price range then by all means, GET IT.
