About “Mustang”

Not to be confused with the 35th Anniversary badging provided on all 1999 Mustangs, this is 1 of 4,628 limited production Mustangs commemorating Mustang's 35th anniversary. Many of the features offered in this version became standard in later years.

Limited Edition Features (found in later years):

Hood Scoop (slightly taller version became standard on 2001 GT Premium)
Different Rear Wing (became standard on all 2001 models)
Aluminum Shift Knob (2001 Bullitt & 2003/2004 Mach I)
Side Scoops (Standard on 2001 GT Premium, then all 2002 - 2004 models)

Additional Limited Edition Features:
Different Rocker Side Moldings
Special Rims
Black Hood Decal
Silver Leather Door Inserts
Charcoal Leather Seats with Silver Inserts
Black Honeycomb Inserts between Taillights
Special Logo Floor Mats and Dash

Overall Production of the 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Mustang

Total Production: 4,628
Performance Red: 1,555
Black: 1,299
Silver: 1,259
Crystal White: 515

Of the 515 Crystal White Mustangs, only 173 had a 5 speed transmission. This is one of those 173.

About “Tang”

I bought this Competition Orange GT in September 2010 to replace the Splitport Tbird as my daily driver. I should have done that soooo much sooner. You can see from my mods list that I haven't done too much to the car other than a healthy dose of the usual bolt-ons. This is my thirteen-second commuter car. :) The real fun car is the XR7 (see my garage).
