The Ford Mustang – the original ‘pony car’ - can lay claim to being the longest running Ford model, now being in its seventh generation following its introduction in 1964. More than 10 million of this iconic model have been built.
The 4th generation, as seen here, was released in 1994 and represented the first redesign in 15 years. Whilst largely being an updated version of the previous generation platform, visually it acquired many styling cues reminiscent of the original 1960’s models. The standard engine fitted to the car was a 3.8 litre, OHV V6 rated at 145 bhp, and in this instance, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Production continued until the introduction of the 5th generation model in 2005.
This car was first sold in the USA in October 1996 but was exported to and re-registered in the UK a year later. It then spent much of its life in the UK, in the hands of just 2 owners, prior to being imported to Jersey in February 2020. There is a thick history file dating from 1998, including invoices for maintenance and repair work carried out, together with UK MOT certificates up to 2020.
