Seeing a Ford Mustang pop up on the radar screen of smart buys is a pretty rare thing, and one not to be taken lightly. It’s not that the Mustang is a poor buy, it’s just that Ford dealers have no trouble selling ‘em without a deal on the hood. In this case, it seems a few 2005 models are still sitting on dealer lots.
They won’t last, thanks to a thoroughly modern interpretation of this classic pony car, one that received unanimous praise from car buyers and journalists. With a special financing deal, the Mustang is more money than ever – whether you purchase the Standard coupe with the V6 engine, or the GT Premium Convertible. If you’re worried that you may miss something by skipping the 2006 model year, fear not: the 2006 Ford Mustang is a carryover from 2005, so you pretty much get the same Mustang. And don’t be fooled into thinking that the deal may get better: with the 2007 Shelby Cobra due for introduction any time, there likely will be an increase in regular Joe ‘Stangs that comes along with it.
