Great Car Although Not Completely Muscle — They run great, the emission controls sucks. The are build solid. This car hardly had any rust. It got great gas mileage out of the 2.8 liter (17 in town, 21 on the highway), they are not the easiest to find parts for. The best part about the car is the feel and drive. There is almost any road noise and it rides incredibly comfortable. They are pretty peppy, but geared for the highway.

Pros

V8, T-Tops

Cons

Minor leaks, older interior

Excellent Condition! — The V8 engine gives the acceleration a considerable boost. The body is in great shape with t-tops. The rims are aluminum and the paint job is custom. (I can't give it a good review cause I don't know what all is in it...)

Best Mustang I've Ever Owned. By LAREDOTECH1

This mustang is the best handling I've ever owned. It also looks pretty good except, why would Ford delete the spoiler when adding the performance package? The brake bite is really good with these Bre... Read More

Stellar By uvedicusmartin

I love everything about the car! The front end had to grow on me because I was more a fan of the 05-09 body style. If you looking for good gas mileage don't drive a mustang. That choice does not compu... Read More

Fast And Cool By yankeezfan2012

Overall this car is a beast for the price and for what it is, 300 HP for a V6 you can't beat it, or the price. Ford has made some mistakes in the past, but this is not one of them. Read More
