The Ford Mustang was brought out five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year with production beginning in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9 1964; it was introduced to the public on April 17 1964 at the New York World's Fair. It has since seen several platform generations and designs. Although some other pony cars have seen a revival, the Mustang is the only original pony car to remain in uninterrupted production over five decades of development and revision. In autumn 1993, the Mustang underwent its first major redesign in 15 years. The fifth generation Mustang was introduced in 2005 under the direction of Chief Engineer Hau Thai-Tang, a veteran engineer for Ford's IndyCar program under Mario Andretti and exterior styling designer Sid Ramnarace; the fifth-generation Mustang's styling echoes the fastback Mustang models of the late-1960s. Ford's senior vice president of design called it "retro-futurism." The fifth-generation Mustang was manufactured at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan.
Originally registered on 1st August 2006, this Mustang GT 350 has formed part of a huge private collection and has been used only sparingly, having covered a mere 3,555 miles in eleven years, an average of just 323 miles per annum. Having been kept in a warm de-humidified environment, the condition of this Ford can only be described as ‘brand new’. Our close inspection of HS06 LDC could not find a mark on the bodywork and the interior even smells brand new; it is hard to think how this car could be bettered. Finished in black with tan leather trim and a black hood, this one-owner GT350 convertible is supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 28th September 2018, the original handbooks and literature pack. Viewing of this immaculate Ford is highly recommended to fully appreciate the stunning condition.
