Early 2000s tuning meant putting TV screens anywhere and everywhere.
Lombard, IL-based used car dealership International Car Center’s got a one-of-a-kind 1999 Ford Mustang GT 35th Anniversary show car for sale that’s been modded and tuned like it came straight from an episode of Pimp My Ride.
You can check out the car’s for sale listing here, with an archive of the listing (just in case the listing goes 404) linked here.
The car got a lot of attention after a video filmed and uploaded by @Legit_albanian featured the car’s most unique mod, TV screens on mounted on every brake caliper, went viral.
You read that right, not only does this Mustang have screens mounted in the front and rear bumper, under the hood, in the trunk, and on the c-pillar, there’s a literal monitor on each and every brake caliper.

As mentioned, this car started out life as a regular, 1999 Ford Mustang GT 35th Anniversary car.
You have to remember the early 2000s Fast-and-Furious era was a tuner car time-period with its owners modding in uncharted territories, drawing inspiration from the low-rider, muscle car, rallying, and early JDM scene.
Like most show car-level passion car projects of the era, a lot of money, time, and fiberglass were literally poured into this New Edge Mustang.
This Mustang’s been outfitted with a full Saleen aero package all around, complete with staggered Saleen wheels.
Unlike a lot of tuner cars today, this one’s a show and go build with a Vortech supercharger under the hood that should boost this V8’s 260 HP another 50-60%.
Along with all the ICE (in-car entertainment) mods, a hallmark of the early 2000s tuner scene popularized by MTV’s Pimp My Ride show, is placing screens in the most unlikely of places.
Not only does this car have screens mounted in all the most uncommon areas, there’s a screen on the pop-up safety pillar as well as on each brake caliper.
Stopped at a stop light or cruising down the freeway at 70 MPH, this Mustang can have literally anything playing…on the brake caliper-mounted monitor.
International Car Center is asking $29,990 for this Mustang which, for a V8 Mustang of the same generation and even keeping in mind this car’s low mileage, is one of the most expensive GTs on sale anywhere.
Although it’s been said again and again, mods, especially as many as on this Mustang, does not add to this car’s value.
In fact, it takes away value so, good look to these guys asking way too much for a Mustang that will frankly never sell at that price (or even half that price.)
It’s a running and driving snapshot of the time period with TVs on your brakes but, other than the insane screen placement, it’s….just a super-modded Mustang GT?
Who’s going to buy it, your guess is as good as mine as whoever this appeals to is thinking about paying off the rest of their home mortgage more than dropping $30K on Mustang from The Fast and the Furious.
