New Mustang ragtop to be available in spring of 2005
Fans of the Ford Mustang will have to wait until spring for the arrival of the all-new Mustang convertible, which likely will be badged as a 2006 model. The base convertible is expected to carry a higher base sticker than the hardtop -- possibly close to $25,000 -- while the Mustang GT convertible should be priced at under $30,000.
The base convertible will be powered by a single-overhead-cam 4.0-liter V-6 engine, while the Mustang GT convertible gets a revised SOHC 4.6-liter V-8. The next-generation SVT Cobra convertible, which gets a high-performance twin-cam V-8, likely won't be introduced until model year 2007.
Inside, the Mustang convertible features the same overall retro design theme as the hardtop and will offer choices for customization.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
