40th Anniversary Package

So I was online looking for parts for my stang and I came across a 40th anniversary center console badge. This made me wonder why mine doesn't have one. My main question is what did the 40th anniversary package include on the 2004 mustang

I have no idea what that is
I have a 40th anniversary and the only things I know that made our package was the Mach 460 sound system premium wheels the exterior badges and a k&n intake and special floormats
all of which were optional upgrades for the standard gt except the k&n and floormats

Re: 40th Anniversary Package

its not just any mustang its an actual package that you could get extra on the V6 and GT.

It included 03/04 cobra style folding mirrors, unique color rims (different on V6 and GT, had gold in them vs matt silver on the regular). Had gold stripes on the car, offered a Crimson Red color ONLY available on the 40th anniv.

Other such things~ but thats all I can currently think of. All got the anniversary side badge I do believe

Many "think" their 04 is a 40th anniv but its actually not~ ... well its 40 year anniversary model but its not got the package.

Such as the 2003 Cobra, you could buy them with the 10th anniv package that only was available on silver, black, and red versions and it had unique items only for those cars vs the regular 2003 Model Cobras

Re: 40th Anniversary Package

Yah Spec pretty much nailed it..the "special edition" 40th anniversary models were limited production with limited colors and options.

The rest of the 04 mustangs - v6, GT, and Mach 1's were 40th anniversary cars with the fender emblems to celebrate the 40th year of production. That was the only difference from an 03 car and an 04 car.

Re: 40th Anniversary Package

mine has the emblems on it, but its stock color is Silver Metallic. so that means it isn't the real 40th anniversary edition?

Well it's still a 40th anniversary car as 2004 was the 40th year of production for the mustang. Ford did the same thing in 99 for the 35th anniversary. All regular v6/GT's were 35th anniversary cars, but a limited production of GT's were special edition 35th anniversary cars. They were only available in red, black and sliver, had 01+ side scoops and a hood scoop, two tone seats and the 01+ pedestal spoiler.

Well, they are. Your car is a 40th anniversary GT wearing the 40th badges....it's not a special 40th anniversary edition like the ones in crimson red, black and white, but it is still an 04 car celebrating the 40th anniversary..just like the regular 04 model year v6's were all 40th anniversary v6's wearing the badges on the fenders.

If someone's 04 v6/GT has the 40th anniversary plaque on the console in front of the shifter and it's not a special 40th anniverary edition, then someone put it there, it didn't come from the factory with it.

Ya I've seen a couple cars on lots with them...nothing wrong with it imo just as long as people know the cars didn't come with it from the factory.

Re: 40th Anniversary Package

My 04 Mach has the folding mirrors in addition the 40th emblems. I'm not sure if the 03 Machs had this setup.

Didn't they all have the 40th badges for 2004? Also, was there a specific low production anniversary car?

Maybe that's why the dude who owned it prior to me rebadged the car, cause it really wasn't that meaningful.

I'm sure some did not come with badges due to being a special car (cobra, Mach, special order gt) or the fact that people just put gt badges on them after purchase.

Re: 40th Anniversary Package

Alright seems like there's some confusion here...

All 2004 regular production v6/GT's/Mach 1's had the 40th anniversary badges on the fenders. That was Ford's way to mark the 40th anniversary of the mustang for the 04 model year v6/GT/Mach 1 mustangs.

There was no 40th celebration of any kind for the 04 cobras.

The 40th Anniversary EDITION v6/GT's were the limited production cars only available in 3 colors - black, oxford white, and crimson red...all had the arizona beige stripes on the hood, trunk and rockers.

They also had the 03/04 cobra's folding, body colored mirrors.

Azure - The 03/04 Mach 1's had the regular black non folding mirrors like the v6/GT's...so the previous owner added them to your car.

Some guys don't care for the 40th emblems on the fenders so they'll replace them with GT emblems, tri bar ponies, etc.

Also if your regular 04 car with just the fender emblems has the 40th plaque in front of the shifter, then someone added it. You can buy them from numerous vendors.

Hope this clears things up for y'all.

Do you think the folding painted mirrors I have was a dealer package?

I doubt it...I mean it's possible, dealers do all kinds of strange sh*t and try to mark the car up because of it, but I'd put my money on the previous owner picking up a set of cobra mirrors, spraying them in Azure Blue and putting them on.

The only factory installed package I know of was the interior upgrade package which was standard for the Machs IIRC.
