Would More Utility Save The Muscle Car?

The fifth-generation S197 Ford Mustang was introduced in 2004 for the 2005 model year and was a more modern take on the classic Mustang look. When it was released, it initially had three engines that customers could choose: the starting 4.0-liter Cologne V6, the 4.6-liter Modular V8, and the 5.4-liter supercharged GT500 Modular engine family.

The V6-powered Ford Mustang is better for the budget, but if you’re purchasing a muscle car for power, the V8 would be more for your liking. This particular fifth-gen Mustang found on Facebook certainly something to behold with the widened body from box flares around each wheel. If that wasn’t enough to catch your attention, the fact that this Mustang features a pickup conversion definitely will. Additionally, there is a front spoiler, aftermarket headlights, and vinyl stripes on the hood and roof.

That’s not all, the Mustang pickup truck also has bright lower grilles that don’t go with the black upper grille, tri-bar taillights, vinyl decals on the doors, and chrome door handles. The mirror caps are plastic, and there are small vents in the rear flares. The last exterior feature is a set of aftermarket wheels. The interior of the Mustang truck features a triple A-pillar gauge pod, and the sound system has been upgraded with better speakers and a subwoofer; there’s also an amplifier, and the radio has been replaced with a Pioneer touchscreen infotainment system. An X-shaped rollbar is mounted behind the cloth-wrapped front seats, and the car features a 5-speed manual transmission that sends power to the 3.31 rear differential.

The Mustang pickup truck was listed on a Facebook group for $10,000, or the best offer. However, considering that the original price was $19,410 for the base Mustang, it’s hard to say whether or not the price is worth buying this unique pony car.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
