Welcome to AFM and I have no clue pertaining to shipping a vehicle over sea's either. The 99-04 models are the same body style ranging from the 3.8 litre V-6 to the 4V V-8 Supercharged Cobra ('03-'04). Also the 4V V-8 Mach1 and 01' 2V Bullitt Mustangs. Here's a good site to check out http://bradbarnett.net/mustangs/timeline/99-04/index.htm Just click on each year to view the basic spec's.

Just do a Google search for shipping automobiles.
There are plenty of companies that ship overseas and can give you rates online from point to point.

Hello.Welcome.:)You'll find that it is a lot cheaper to buy a new 05 in the U.K. than it would be to buy an 02 in the states and ship it over.The actual shipping cost for a car is going to be something in the 6000 dollar range.And that is not including the brutal tarrif,which is about 50 % of the purchase price of the vehicle.There are only two ways around that that I know of.One is to come over here,buy the car and then drive the car for a year over here.You would then be exempt.The other is to be an american soldier of some sort,get yourself stationed in the U.K.,and then ship the car over.Neither of those plans sound very workable for you.There's a reason that american built cars are cheaper in america.:DGood luck and again,welcome.:)
