2004 40th Ann. Special Ed.

Many people think that all 2004 mustangs are a 40th Anniversary Special Edition, simply because of the badging. But this is simply not true. In 2004 they did offer a different package that seperates both V6 and GT models from the norm.

I own a V6 model, and many people are asking me about it, especially my side mirrors ... they are the same; folding and painted, that a termi has

I try to explain my package, but no one understands it, so I thought I might share to the community some information


Here is a quick discription I found from a website:

"In anticipation of next year’s milestone, every 2004 Mustang will have 40th Anniversary badges on the front fenders. The all-new 40th Anniversary Package offers performance-oriented exterior and interior upgrades to V-6 and GT models. Exterior enhancements include Arizona Beige Metallic performance stripes on the hood, lower rocker panels and decklid complemented by upgraded wheels (16-inch for the V-6 and 17-inch Bullitt wheels for the GT) with a special Arizona Beige Metallic accent.

The special 40th Anniversary models are available in an exclusive Crimson Red exterior, as well as Black and Oxford White, with body-colored, fold-in side mirrors and a Medium Parchment interior. The cars offer as standard the interior upgrade package that includes a four-way head restraint, painted center console surround and shifter bezel in metallic gray, along with brushed aluminum door lock knobs, shift boot trim ring and pedals. The special interior also includes unique floor mats with an embroidered 40th Anniversary logo and a matching badge on the center console. Convertible models offer an upgraded Medium Parchment soft retractable top that’s more durable and sound resistant. These limited-edition models will be available at the beginning of the 2004 model year"

2004 Ford Mustang

Read more about them there^


Another fact I found about the mustang in 2004:
"Unfortunately, this was the last year the Mustang was produced at Ford’s Dearborn Assembly Plant. It was reported that 6.7 million of the 8.3 million total Mustangs ever produced, at the time, were produced at Dearborn Assembly."

This link has the same info till you get to the bottom, there is has charts for 04 specs, thought Id share.
2004 Ford Mustang Specifications


"In 2004, Ford produced a special 40th Anniversary Edition of the Mustang. As an $895 option available in both Standard and GT editions, coupe or convertible, it consisted of 40th Anniversary badging, enhanced interior with "40th Anniversary" floor mats, painted folding exterior mirrors from the Cobra models, a tan cloth convertible top (instead of canvas), Arizona Beige painted "Bullitt" wheels, and Arizona Beige stripes on the hood, trunk and lower bodysides. The anniversary package was available in Crimson Red (exclusive to package), Oxford White or black. Ford produced 4,558 Crimson Red models. Crimson Red, Ford paint code "FX", was also called Merlot on several other Ford models from 2002 through 2008 model years. All 40th Anniversary package cars came with Parchment (tan) leather interiors. Other than two pro-production units, all Crimson Red vehicles were built from August through November 2003. Forty-one of the Crimson Red cars were sent to Roush Industries for conversions into Roush Mustangs. It marked the end of this design of the Mustang, as 2005 ushered in an all-new model."
Ford Mustang variants - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


"All 2004 Mustangs except Cobras wore 40th Anniversary fender badges, but not every one was a 40th Anniversary Edition Mustang. The 40th Anniversary Edition package was available on V6 and GT models. It came in three colors including Black, Oxford White, and Crimson Red, which was only available on the 40th Anniversary models. They came with premium wheels, 40th Anniversary floormats, body-colored fold-in mirrors, and Arizona Beige stripes on the rocker panels, hood, and trunk. They also came standard with the interior upgrade package which included larger headrests and silver interior trim. Ford made 5700 of them. The package was an $895 upgrade."

Let me see if i understand correct. All 2004 mustangs have the 40th anniversary badges because its been 40 years. BUT there was a seperate v6 or GT package that was the TRUE 40th anniversary edition.

So is it possible to get a 2004/2009 WITHOUT all of that anniversary stuff on it? Most if it I don't really care for, but the fender badges are deal breakers...hopefully we'll have delete options on the 2014...

But great post. Reps.

But in the end, badges are badges, can be removed or replaced if you don't like them. How else would you see misbadged cars? lol

The 2000 Spring Feature Mustang was the only one offered in Zinc Yellow, a feature that would return to all 2001 Ford Mustangs.
