Uh there is no 100th anniversary edition. The 2004 is the 40th anniversary edition. I'd say double check what you saw and ask them about it. They're full of sh*it if they're calling it anything but a 39th anniversary edition, lol. Hell the mustang is only in it's 42nd production year now.
Actually there IS a 100th anniversary edition.
They call it the Centenial Edition, meaning that Ford has been making cars for 100 years as of 2003.

Look here:

Dude my friends has a 100th anne edition. Its real he has all the badges and everything.

"Ford celebrated its 100th Anniversary in June of 2003, and made limited edition vehicles to commemorate the event. The 100th Anniversary models only came in black, and included Premium Verona-grain Imola leather seating surfaces in two-tone parchment. The Mustang got the GT premium package which included 17" wheels, anti-lock brakes and traction control; dual exhaust; power driver's seat with power lumbar support; leather-wrapped steering wheel; and Mach 460 AM/FM Stereo with six-disc CD changer, as well as 100th Anniversary badges on the fender and decklid and embossed on the seats. The Centennial Package was a $995 upgrade."
Thanks Ben...

Dealer calls is 100th Anniversary Edition.
It's really a Ford CENTENIAL Edition (iow Ford has been making cars for 100 years as of 2003)...

So ANYWAY.......................

Now that we have all solved that little dilemma (group hug

How does this thing compare to say a 2005+ V6 ?

The price seems high to me, but it is mint and a real badged model AFAIK because the description fits perfectly.

What do you guys think it's worth and what should I look for as far as possible abuse etc.

TIA for all your help!

I'd love to but it's just not in the budget.
Besides I drove the 2006 V6 and the GT and for what I need, the V6 with a tune CAI and a different muffler will be fine for me.

What I am concerned about is how the 2003 GT Vert compares to the 2005+ V6 (not GT) and what to look for in a used one to hopefully determine any possible abuse, if possible.
I've been working on cars for 30 years+ and know the general things to look for, but I would like some specifics to the 2003 GT vert.

I saw a 2003 GT Convert. 100th anniversary edition for sale at a dealership and was wondering what this thing is and
how well does it compare to the 2005+ V6?

The car is very clean, has 17k miles on it and is loaded with every option.
Also has new rubber on it (this worries me a little, burnouts on the old rubber maybe?)

So anyway, the dealer wants $19,800 for it.
It was a one owner car according to carfax and not a lease/rental etc.

I am going to test drive it tomorrow (Thurs) and would like to know what to look for as far as typical problems, wear and tear, potential removed mods, etc.

Is the price decent?

TIA
dont buy a car that has been a rental...theres a reason the tires are BRAND new...people rent cars and beat the living f*ck out of them..just like buying a car from a cop. [:'(]

I see a lady with a drop top centenial GT driving everyday going to work. Her badges confused me at first because I could never really get close enough to see what they said.
