People Are Getting Rid of Crashed 2024 Ford Mustangs, Would You Buy This One?

The previous-generation Ford Mustang made history by becoming the best-selling sports model in numerous global markets. But that's not the only thing it was known for, as the back end used to be (and still is) extremely happy upon abusing the right pedal.

Combined with a steering that needed refining, it turned it into a ticking bomb, as whenever someone wanted to show off, they usually ended up crashing into all kinds of solid (and not only) objects. Put the right words into most people's favorite search engine, and a plethora of videos will pop up on your screen to keep you entertained for hours.

We secretly hoped that its successor, the 2024 Ford Mustang, which broke cover last year and only recently started arriving at dealers all over the nation, would handle better. We still hope that, and while there appears to be some improvement in this aspect, it's clearly not enough for the average Joe. Proof stands the several crashed examples that we recently crossed paths with.

That list has now grown to include yet another copy, which was recently listed for grabs on the automotive hall of shame called Copart. A 2024 model that barely got to enjoy its naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, this GT, which normally enjoys 480 hp (487 ps/358 kW) and 415 lb-ft (563 Nm) of torque, was involved in a weird accident that rendered it useless.

Clear damages can be seen on both sides of the rear axles, as the wheels are not aligned anymore. The side airbags at the front and rear were deployed as a result of the crash, which we know nothing of, and it also has some bruises on the rear bumper and left quarter panel. Everything else looks great for the simple fact that this is a brand-new car, and the same goes for the engine that we mentioned above.

The listing says this vehicle was valued at almost $53,000 before the accident, some $10,000 more than the MSRP of the 2024 GT Fastback. The Dark Horse sits at the top of the range price from just under $60,000 before destination and dealer fees, and for more goodies, customers can get the Premium variant of this model, offered from $63,265.

Now, it is clear that with a little bit of work, a skilled person can bring this copy back to life, only it's not going to be cheap. As a result, a pre-purchase inspection in the flesh should be considered by anyone who wants to place a bid, and to do that, they will have to take a trip to Chicago, as that's where they will find it. So, how much do you think this 2024 Ford Mustang GT is worth?
